“Just a case of poor value”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

We came here in 2007 and had a great meal. A few years on and the place is not the same. The starters were tasty but small and overpriced. The mains were tasty but quite simply tiny. The tuna came with no rice or veg or anything. The beef massaman curry dish tasted fine but I'm not sure what the cold purple potato smear was meant to add to the dish. The sushi was fine. If you want good value for your money try somewhere else - there are better places than this in Sitges. The atmosphere was OK but the fact you end up feeling ripped off just spoils the experience.

“Utter rubish”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Usually I rely on the wisdom that if a restaurant is empty when everywhere else is full, go elsewhere.

So the positives. Service was great but in August at 9 pm we were the only people there. So hard to get wrong.

Also the decor was ok. Place clean.

But the Thai food was disgusting.


I eat good Thai food in London and only came back from a month in Thailand in January.


Beef masaman was pure style over substance, a beef steak that appeared to have been cooked sou vides with a nasty
masaman sauce and weird purple slime to decorate my plate.

My partner had green chicken curry which was, in fairness edible if entirely plain.

Desert was 5 textures of chocolate. In fact a cold stale chocolate brownie with a chocolate sauce and some chocolate work. Vanilla icecream was fine but we were cheated two textures of chocolate (no bad thing as I am sure they would have been as nasty as the rest of the meal).

Reading other reviews it appears the sushi may be ok but it's not Thai and for a Thai restaurant to get their headline food wrong is unforgivable.

Price would have been fine had the food been good but I wouldn't recommend eating here even if the food was free so any cost is too much!

For a reasonable restaurant to be empty in August with plenty of international travellers around says it all.

Dont go here. Every restaurant in Sitges is better!

“Not worth it”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

Very disappointing experience. 4 of us ate here and had 2 courses each. Starter was larger than main ( were not big eaters) but the main was very small. Very over priced for what you get. Would not recommend as there are many others to choose from. Service poor, we always tip but declined on this occasion as the whole experience was not a good one.

“Disgraceful”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Myself and 3 friends ate here last week.

Firstly there was no SUSHI, as the SUSHI chef was sick.
Small portions, like extra small portions.
Waiting staff, very professional
Manager of Restaurant, unprofessional and rude. Spoke English when it suited her to after saying she did not speak English.
Restaurant has no atmosphere probably because of the Manager.
The main course I ordered, Thai Green Curry was smaller than the starter of satay chicken skewers.
My friends has Duck, Lamb which was an ok portion but the rice came late so food was cold when it arrived.
My partner had scallops for main course, that was it. Just 4 Scallops. No veg no nothing. Not value for money.
When we looked for goodwill gesture for my food being unsatisfactory we were threatened that the police would be called. In all my years of traveling and eating out I have never come across anything like this. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“A touch of Buddha Bar/Sushi/Thai chic in Sitges”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

The small restaurant is very welcoming. The interior is welcoming and relaxing. Plenty of purples, fuxias, and pink. It also includes all the kitsch Buddha decor you can find everywhere nowadays.
The food is very good. The sushi specially. The Thai dishes are less than authentic. In reality the name is deceiving. There is very little Thai on Sitthai to be honest. Prices are high reflecting location in the centre of town, and that is open only during the high season.
The biggest disappointment: The only beer on offer: Heineken. For Asian dishes? Really?
That alone deprive them of 2 stars. I wanted my Sapporo or Asahi, or Kirin, Singha or Chang at least. Alas...
