Sitthai has a unique position in Sitges in that it does ethnic cooking well. It specialises in Japanese and Thai which just so happen to be my favourite two Asian cuisines. I have been to this place multiple times over the years I have visited Sitges. The food is always at the above average to very good end but oh dear the service.....Firstly I should say this is not a criticism of our waitress who should be sainted immediately or at the very least find a restaurant that appreciates what she offers. When we arrived the restaurant was already quite full and filling up fast. She was by herself and it was after 10pm. Everybody wanted something wine, more wasabi, extra napkins etc and she was simply overworked and sprinting from one request to another. It was actually quite sweet and got to the hilarious stage on many occasions. We were quite lucky being seated closest to the bar we got to ask her for things quicker then many also our food arrived in a relatively (relative is important here as one table took 30 mins just to get the champagne they ordered) normal time. At around 11ish the owner swanned in as though everything was well with the universe. At this point you could have cut the atmosphere with a knife with several tables close to open mutiny. I have meet this owner on a couple of occasions and he is charming and extremely gregarious, I'm just not sure his heart is in running a restaurant. He remembered me and when I mentioned the service he said yes he had been unexpectantly held up, this could have been true for all I know. However I did point out to him that I think that was the excuse he gave us twelve months ago when we last ate here and had a similar experience. Its also important to point out the food was very slow to most tables so i can only speculate that the kitchen is likewise staffed overly leanly. I really do like this place, I like the staff who are doing an exceptional job, the food and I even like the owner who gave us free chillies at the end of the meal when we asked if we could take some home. But I beg him please put on more staff even with you there it requires at least two other waiting staff even at the quality of your current one and clearly more help in the kitchen. We will be back even if just for the entertainment factor and of course the food.
