    This was my first time eating at this restaurant. The service was outstanding, the food was flavorful. Unfortunately what mostly dominates this review were the dirty plates we were first given (large party of five) which downgraded the experience. All plates were dirty and had to be replaced. Some were replaced twice. I'm not sure I will be back given this experience despite the outstanding service and multiple apologies.

    The food is great here, but the owner is not nice at all. He is very pushy and rude. He also refused to take my Open Table dining cheque and claimed his restaurant doesn't have Open Table.

    The food at Sitar was very tasty and well prepared. I recommend going for the food. The atmosphere was neither comfortable nor welcoming, and the TV was blaring. They could do better at welcoming their guests.

    Very attentive staff, quiet, good customer service. I went on a Tuesday night, so the place was nearly empty. Really enjoyed the Tikka Masala. I wouldn't bother with the goat cheese naan, though. Definitely want to go back for the lunch buffet.
