“Tasty and satisfying”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Went for a sit down buffet instead of usual take away and was extremely pleasantly surprised.

Very unusual buffet style as you get your spicy onions and popadoms brought to your table followed by a 'taster' curry followed by a large selection of starters. The 'taster' was fabby Garlic chicken done Goan style and really true to the taste of the original. This may be a way of ensuring gluttons don't empty the buffet but they certainly do not skimp on portions ,everything was warm and fresh.
Main buffet was short on lamb dishes which partner prefers but I liked all of the chicken dishes and was full enough to take small tastes of each. Had ice cream and passion fruit cheesecake and coffee.
Two glasses of not bad med dry white excellent value.
On the whole a very nice night, excellent value for money , very attentive manager and staff.
cautionary note: ask to be seated away from door as a wee bit draughty.

“Was ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

We went on a weeknight. The food nice but i felt there was a great selection of dishes to choose from. Over all a nice dinner however didnt feel value for money due to lack of choice of food options

“Paisley's best Indian restaurant? Yes I think it is”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Returned after a long absence for a weekend lunch visit. Good atmosphere as it was around half full. I was pleasanty suprised about the buffet though, there was lots of food on offer, some have just a few scraps of chicken in sauce detailed in previous posts, but not when I went. There was lots of food and it was all fresh, I seen the waiter attend to it at least 5 times whilst I was there. Customer service is very good, I saw the staff greet a few very warmly as they were obviously regulars and even sat down with one family. Good tasty Indian classics on offer with cheescake and the usual tea and coffee etc.

Yes I was impressed by this visit and I think I will be a regular from now. I do like Sitar and agree with others, Paisley's best Indian hands down.

“By far the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

The decor and food is of great great quality. The restaurant can probably seat near 100, and the variety in the buffet is fantastic for all. The lamb is so tender , and the chicken tikka is the best! Especially when it costs £5.95 at lunch time, and from £9.95 at evenings for a 5 COURE BUFFET. This Is the only place I dine in now in paisley !

“Nice enough takeaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Had pakora and kormas from there a few times as I work nearby. Decent grub and reasonably priced, quick service which is a bonus on 45 min dinner breaks!
