Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our food was absolutely gorgeous we had been before and we’re looking forward to celebrating my husband’s 60 th birthday. The only negative would be the cold unfriendly service could be improved bordering being served by robots . I understand that they have a good...reputation for the food and quite right too but shouldn’t get complacent as a smile and a friendly welcome goes along way .More

We went here as it was recommended to us, we live in Cheltenham and everyone in Ledbury says its just fantastic and you will be really looked after here. But we weren’t ! Perhaps we came on the wrong night, the place was exceptionally busy...lots of people waiting to pick up takeaways, we were asked to wait as our table wasn’t ready, but there was no where to wait, too many people crammed in already in the small space by the door. When we got to our table we ordered drinks, popadoms, mains and naans. After eating our popadoms we then sat for over an hour before our plates arrived in readiness for our mains, we asked the man who bought them if we could get some drinks but he was in such a hurry, I don’t think he heard us. We then sat there trying to get another waiters attention as they ran through the restaurant with take away bags. When we eventually got our curries we unfortunately weren’t blown away, but were exceptionally hungry. the prawn Jilak was ok nothing special and my husband said the lamb was tender in his but way too much sauce and not much meat. The prices are ok for what we ate and drink prices reasonable too, but I’m not sure our trip over was worth it. We have eaten better and had better customer service. I have no problem waiting for my food when a place is busy, but would like someone to tell me there is a delay and perhaps check in and ask if drinks are needed.More

Superb food and service. We walked in on a busy Friday night without a reservation and were welcomed and seated within a very short time. The food was sublime and the service faultless. Many thank to all. Bernice.

Fantastic restaurant. Really tasty, freshly cooked food that tastes like it’s been made with care and not just chucked together. A notch or two above your typical Indian restaurant. Excellent service clearly well lead from the front

This is the third time our group of 5 has enjoyed an evening at the Sitara. The food is amazing and the service is superb. The front of house manager is a delightful man who does everything he can to ensure the evening is special....I wish I could give more than 5 stars.More

Very busy restaurant, we hadn't booked but owner got us a table. Good selection on menu and reasonable prices, food very tasty and good portion sizes. Food was served just right not rushed and time between each course. Waiters and owner were very polite and...friendly and never stood still. Definitely worth a visit but probably a good idea to book.More

Amazing dinner! Very nice restaurant with very good service. The owner was obviously very much involved, every step of the way. We had the menu for two persons and it was fabulous. We can only highly recommend!

We came here at 7.30pm on a Sunday night, without a booking, and had to wait 10 minutes or so for a table, and perhaps were a bit lucky to get a table. Service is very good, so is the food, my chicken korma was...great (although perhaps a tidge too sugary) my friend's biriani was also very good, and the naan bread was amazing. 2 x mains and 2 x zero% beers came to £35.40 or £40 including tip. It's a nice looking place, quiet, unfussy decor, friendly and efficient service.More

I'm from California, home to hundreds of Indian restaurants. Sitara is, hands down, the best Indian restaurant I've ever been to before. The flavors from the poppadom do a well choreographed dance on the tongue. The mango chutney compared favorably to all the homemade varieties...I've experienced back home, very well balanced for the western palate. You simply have to try the Kashmiri pilau. Loaded with flavors. Right balance of nuts and fruits. The service and ambiance was impeccable. They either are naturally good or they got some serious training done. If you're near Ledbury, do make a stop here. You will not be disappointed!More

Came in tonight 14/7/23 for a takeaway meal for 2. Wasn’t expecting the remark from the owner that we received when I got my card out to pay, towards my partner “shame on you” all because I was paying there and then, and not my...partner. The food was nice but what a vile owner to make someone feel that way. Very judgemental. Shouldn’t he of just came to take payment and not make such a vile remark. I’m local but my partner has just moved up here to live with me and we were hoping this would be a regular takeaway however after tonight’s experience we’re not planning to come back to be treated this way.More

Outstanding service. I usually go for korma and though I asked about the fish dishes, I ordered the korma. Danny persuaded me to try the fish although sure the korma was almost ready - he said I could change my mind and I should be...more adventurous. This was said in a gentle manner - not pushy. I did try it and it was very good. Lots of nice touches - such as hot tissues to wipe our hands and after eights at the end of the meal. All the staff were very nice and very efficient. One of the best Indian restaurants I've been to.More

I don't think they do, customers came in to collect a takeaway but I didn't see anybody taking orders out.
