Description: 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 !

“Fantastic Indian Food!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Eating at this restaurant was one of the highlights of our first trip to London. The food was incredible and we ate until we were stuffed. Good value for money. But the ambiance and the friendly staff are the reasons why we will certainly go back - Raj, thank you so very much for spending the time to chat with us and thanks for my first taste of brandy! You rock and we will certainly be back! Your Canadian friends, Alysha and Steve.

“Great food , great Jazz”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Raj makes you comfortable the moment you enter the restaurant. The biggest USP of this place is that food can be customized as to how you want it. We knew what we felt like eating and the food was made according to our specifications. Great blend of spices, very authentic, loved it especially the chicken curry.

“Truly Genuine”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

The host is really nice and welcoming. We asked for his advice on what to order and he absolutely took over! We were glad that he did and the food he chose for us was just great. You can taste the freshness of each and every plate, of the spices used, all was cooked there and then in an open kitchen. Definitely one of the best Indian meals we ever had!

“Amazing food, relaxed atmosphere.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We were looking for some authentic (and spicy!) indian food while in London and this place turned out to be a gem. Everything we ordered had extremely vibrant flavors and did not sit too heavy with us afterwards. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The decor is tasteful, atmosphere is very relaxed with great music. I would definitely recommend stopping in here - and would definitely come again when in London.
