A real change from tapas and hotel food. Food was great, freshly cooked and very tasty. Attentive service without being obtrusive. Find it next to Alfredos in San Pedro. Worth a trip out from Marbella, if you like Indian food.

A bit worried by last review and agree with some of it. My Chicken Vindaloo had no potato but my wife's Prawn Sag was very good indeed.

Portions are smallish but just right.

3 curries, 2 Nan, 1 rice, 3 beers and couple of Cokes came to 44 euros.

Tricky to find as they are on low side of road.

We will go back as great antidote to endless tapas, etc.

We visited Sitar last night and have slept a night so that I would not be hasty with my review. The meal was cheap - €59 for 4 curies, 2 naan breads, 1 rice, 1 onion bhaji and drinks. First came the free of charge poppadums with relish. This was fine. The service was fine as was the rice. The onion bhajis were about 3 cms in size and flat and round - never seen them like that before ! They tasted (just) ok. My main problem was with the curries.... i LOVE a tikka masala and have honestly never tasted one like this. The sauce was really sweet as if made with sweetened condensed milk. The chicken korma tasted like a pina colada ! very sweet with a pineapple taste to it ! The lamb rogan josh was ok. All the curry dishes had only 6 small square pieces of meat. The meal was inexpensive but if you're looking for a real, british type curry, this is unfortunately not the place,

I have been going to this restaurant for almost 13 years. Hazeem and his family are delightful and the food is outstanding and excellent value. I used to live in Mumbai and the food produced here is authentic and the best I have had on the Costa del Sol. It puts most of the Indian restaurants there and in the UK to shame. The breads they produce to complement the food are also superb. The décor is comfortable but not fancy and you can see the food being freshly prepared for all the meals. This is not pre-packaged or pre-prepared but fresh and tasty. Don't miss it if you are in San Pedro and like Indian food.

Tried this Indian due to good reviews on tripadvisor, was not disappointed! Food was great, very tasty, but even better very reasonably priced. Bottle house wine only 9euro!!! Surroundings basic, but clean. Would highly recommend.
