For first impressions from outside weren’t that good but very nice on the inside. Food was even better. Little more expensive than expected but good service and flavoursome food.. A delight.

We love Indian cookery, but were sadly disappointed here. Service was horrendously slow, food was disappointing and quite glutenous. Would not recommend this.

We have been to Sitar on every visit to this wonderful island and each time its been different... This time the portions were way too big, they could be more attractive if they offered a Thali, smaller portions and lower price. Just a thought

This is a fairly solid run-of-the-mill Indian if you have the urge. Prices are much higher than UK prices at around 45 dollars per dish but I would say this was normal for Barbados. Saag chicken is disconcertingly green in appearance, but tasty. Madras chicken...More

We have been visiting Sitar for over ten years and the food and service are both excellent. Our latest bist was for a family dinner for six persons and there were no complaints about any of the courses. We will certainly continue to visit.
