    I chose the mixed pakoras and they were lovely. My partner had a madras curry and loved it. Cold inside (air con) so we sat outside. Great service. Typical bajan tourist price.

    A very enjoyable meal at Sitar in Holetown on Sunday (14/1/24) evening. Nice atmosphere on the deck out front and very attentive staff. Food was much better than we all expected and it was delivered in a friendly and relaxed manner. The restaurant was busy (always a good sign) and we all agreed that we’d dine at Sitar again.

    Not the best, the starter was tasty and hot but the tandoori mixed was luke warm at best and the curry was nothing special ( the reviews I read pre booking seemed to give a different impression ) The team serving on were great and friendly but to my mind the food appeared too quickly so maybe not freshly prepared

    Really cute restaurant in a small house on 2nd street in Holetown. Service was quick and food was delicious. Could have used a little more heat to the spice but flavors were delicious! I would return over and over if I lived there

    Great food - starters probably better than mains. Check out my review on T*** A****** as I can’t be bothered to write it all again. Short answer is - yes…book a table.

    Overall okay for our first time there. The food was tasty but we got our appetizers and mains all at the same time. We had reservations for 6 and it wasn’t busy so couldn’t understand why we didn’t get appetizers sooner. I would go back as a group to see how that goes and try some of the other dishes.

    Very poor experience. We were informed just after we ordered drinks that the menu was limited. The food quality was poor. We both ordered chicken cooked in the tandoori oven but we got over cooked and tough chicken. There was no difference between the main course dishes although they were different on the menu. On paying the bill I was asked a number of times if I would like to leave a tip. Obviously I declined. The food was very expensive and poor quality. I would not recommend.

    Booked the day before so they were expecting us. Decided to sit inside but just as we settled a rather noisy group arrived so we asked if we could move outside. No trouble at all. Lovely food and quick attentive service. Would thoroughly recommend. Charles Carter

    We were celebrating my birthday and wanted to try the Indian food. Despite there being other similar restaurants in the area we chose Sitar because of the reviews. It didn't disappoint. The food was exceptional and we agreed that we would definitely go again. The staff were friendly and the only disappointment was that their tandoori oven was unavailable so some menu options weren't available. However there were so many choices that it really didn't matter in the end.
