Food was really tasty and they did a mushroom curry for my husband which wasn't on the menu. Portions were ample and service was good. Would return.

Amazing service. Was amazed by how well waitress knew the entire menu from knowledge. The norm else where is hey have to check this and that with the chef. Don't remember the young lady's name but she was excellent. A gentle man also attended to us who was awesome also. 5 stars.

My wife and I enjoy Sitar, but there are some quirks about the place that could be addressed. The curries are all very good, but one must order rice separately. This seems unnecessary to me. If the restaurant feels that it needs to charge more to cover the cost of rice, then I wish it would just do it. This would give the impression that the portions were larger as well, As they currently are, I can see some feeling that not enough was offered. Naan and other breads are also ordered separately and they are quite expensive. $5 US or more for bread seems excessive, even if it is very good. The last problem is the space. Conversations are easily overheard here and we always leave commenting about how we felt we were going to be asked to leave when dining with friends because our table was loud. We will continue to go when we have a craving for curry, but it is not the first place in Holetown that we think of to eat.

By far my favorite Indian restaurant on the island! The food is always flavourful and the staff friendly. The Fish Tikka Masala is a must-try!!! You will never be disappointed with Sitar!

Delicious Indian food in a very comfortable lightly air-conditioned restaurant. Consistently great food, service and ambiance. The main menu is very good, the occasional specials are extremely flavoursome. Good bar area, wine list with reasonably priced choices, and overall good value, especially for the sometimes pricey West Coast.

The food was and service were both great. My friend had ordered a meal with some really spicy chili’s and ate one (ouch!). The owner attentive and brought her some yogurt/ something that helped to reduce the discomfort so that we were able to continue our dining experience!

Fantastic food - delicious dishes and really personable service. One of our favourite restaurants on the west coast. On a hot and humid evening, the air conditioned interior is a treat.
