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 !
