We always try to find an Indian restaurant wherever we go as we can normally rely on getting some tasty vegetarian food. And the Sitar certainly didn't disappoint. The seating and tables are basic but the food is excellent. We only had mains and we're glad because the portion sizes are huge. Our waiter was very friendly and spoke good... More

I am not a great fan of Indian restaurants or 'curry' to use the vernacular! Add into the mix that I am a committed vegetarian and I think you will agree dear reader that I am on a hiding to nothing. That said, and because my husband is also vegetarian and loves a 'curry' I am more than happy to... More

We were in the neighbourhood me and my husband and we checked the reviews of sitar which attracted us and we went to try it as we live indian food. The food isnt at all yumy or has taste. No spices. And not worth the money. The staff arent nice or helpful. Never ever try it.

Great Indian food with excellent taste and they sell the big bottles of king cobra beer to wash it down with. Prices are reasonable and you can sit outside on ramble Poblenou which adds to the experience

We were looking at taking a break from Spanish food and wanted to try some of our own country's food. We ordered chicken tikka and mutton biryani. The chicken tikka was bland, had the wrong cut of the chicken. Very unlike the original served in India. Then we ordered a mutton biryani and this was like a pulao with tomato... More

Ate here on our third night in Barcelona, lucky enough to get last outside table. The food was superb. We had fab starters and four chicken mains-tandoori, korma, masala and madras-all excellent. The service was good, both quick and attentive. As a result we are here on our last night too, excellent again. Highly recommend.

Sitar Restaurant is situated on Las Ramblas de Poblenou, a street of the same concept as the "real" Ramblas, but much smaller, cozier and without the noise. There are both tables inside and outside on the central passage, obviously your choice in the long Spanish summer. Vegetable Pakora for starters were homemade, fresh and delicious. They come with two sauces,... More

My son was longing for some indian food after a long and tiring day around Barcelona and the evening at Barcelona. The restaurant is close to Holiday inn and the beach. Food is lovely with seating available inside or outside. The chef can prepare food as per your taste. My son needed food that wasn't spicy and he made it... More

The bread was not at all tasty, the dal was half cooked. The beer was great and this was our first Indian food after we left home for a trip to Spain.

Staying in Poblenou

Neighborhood Profile
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centers catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.
