I work in the area and so we go to Sitar for lunch about every second Friday. The service, drinks list and atmosphere is basic but because we go there so often they know what we want and always look after us. and being BYO means it makes it a very cheap lunch as the meals are really good value...

Having made the effort to book I was surprised when entering the restaurant that the waitress didn't want to know my booking name. After a little time we were given water and menus however I had to go and ask for service so as to place our drinks order and select menu courses. The bad service I put down to... More

Wow. It's taken us 3 years to find a good fish bhuna...and we were recommended Sitar Albion to get a take out. We were soooo happy. We have returned a few times since, and the food has been excellent. The only thing we don't understand. Is that sometimes you get a big container of curry and other times you get... More

We had dinner on a Tuesday night and were surprised at how busy it was. Our food was delicious and the service was swift. Complimentary popadoms arrived at the table with our menus. They had a good drinks list and BYO as well.

Choose the Sitar when staying in Albion on business.....main of chicken biryani and aloo gobi side dish - superbly tasty, not heavy at all, really enjoyed it....finished off with a kulfi, which was also good. Staff friendly, decor in keeping with ambience trying to create. I'll be back!

I have tried many indian restaurants all over the world but few come anywhere near Sitar. Excellant atmosphere and food to match! Clean flavours, amazing spices and very reasonably priced. I would've loved to be able to recreate the taste of their juicy tandoori chicken, lamb cutlets or some of the vegeterian dishes (forgot names)...i wished they run cookng classes!

Our favorite indian restaurant to date. We have struggled to find a good indian restaurant since migrating from the UK 10 years ago! This one is hard to beat. Highly recommend chicken cylon and the butter chicken but for something more authentic try chicken bhuna. Always get good service and never had a bad meal!

Best Indian food I've had so far. We always get the chicken tikka and/or Butter chicken and the garlic naan is to die for!...but the price is starting to climb

We have been visiting Sitar for the past 7 years and have consistently had wonderful Indian meals. Their chefs are particular with their selection of meat and they cook it to perfection. The chicken Tikka as an entree is beautiful. The Palak Paneer is wonderful as is the Butter Chicken. All yummy! You can have your choice of mild, medium... More

I was a guest at a dear friend's 50th birthday and despite the fact that they were catering for some numbers, I found the service and food excellent, could not fault it. To be fair, we had a room to ourselves, so did not have the feeling at all of being "squashed" as some of the previous reviews reveal. I... More
