Description: The Sitara is an Indian jazz restaurant serving authentic punjabi cuisine. Each dish is freshly made to order so you can experience the different blend of spices and cooking methods. Established in 1991, we are a family run restaurant with a passion for quality cuisine and great jazz.We play jazz music , walls are warmly decorated with jazz art and pictures, lights are dimmed. This creates a smooth warm lively welcoming atmosphere. The Sitara is a venue where you can enjoy a superior authentic Indian meal in the lively, friendly surrounding with great music !

“Amazing food, relaxed atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We were looking for some authentic (and spicy!) indian food while in London and this place turned out to be a gem. Everything we ordered had extremely vibrant flavors and did not sit too heavy with us afterwards. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The decor is tasteful, atmosphere is very relaxed with great music. I would definitely recommend stopping in here - and would definitely come again when in London.

“Very good; fresh, light and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

First time here and was very good for the price. Onion bhajis were light and fresh, best we have had in ages. I had lamb tikka which was cooked to perfection. Main courses were again perfectly fresh, and very good. It's a place that does "light" naan breads as well which is ideal.

Will be going again.

We discovered the Sitara tonight, divine food and great atmosphere. Listening to jazz while eating a delicious dinner is the best combination. Will go back ASAP

“Terrific food, great service - our favourite Indian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We've been going here most weeks for a few years now - as a couple and often with our children. The food never disappoints - nor does the welcome. If you're new to The Sitara, you'll notice how many customers are obviously regulars - their loyalty won by consistently delivering delight. It's a proper restaurant (not a takeaway with tables) with Jazz music setting the atmosphere. The food is superb - and recommendations from Raj have never disappointed. We love their King Prawn Pattia - and the Nan bread is to die for. Enjoy.
