This is a favourite of mine because the food is very good .Unfortunatly it doesnt seem to be very busy... this is a shame because the quality of food should attract more people. i find the service a little off hand. the waiters seem fed up with one exception but in general you as a customer need to tease out...

Have visited here many, many times as it is local to my parents house. Staff are friendly and welcoming and always remember your face. Service is not rushed, like it is in some Indian restaurants. My favourites off the menu are the chicken tikka and the bombay potatoes. The last visit I went on was with a friend, I had... More

My housemates were there a few times and they recommended to me. I've never been in indian restaurant before because I only tried those premade sauces what you can get in a shop, so I thought I don't like indian food. They invited me yesterday and we went there together. I am surprised, I love indian food! Everything was very... More

I've ordered takeaway from here a couple of times and it's always been delicious! A little pricey but it's worth it, I'd r commend it to anyone that hasn't eaten there yet.

We traditionally take it in turns with friends for a meal out on New Year's eve at our local curry houses. It was the turn of the Sitar this year and I had the booked well in advance for a table of 8. The table though reserved was not made up for our arrival. I've never seen the restaurant so... More

This is Cherry Hinton's local Indian restaurant and on the freezing cold night we came here it was packed. We could understand why. Very tasty food & big portions. We were eating vegetarian and recommend the vegetable biryanis, the channa bhaji, and the delicious freshly made plain naan.

Went for a date night meal after reading some positive reviews. Not the warmest welcome and some very strange 'magic pink dust' to go with the popadoms. Sadly the food was quite bland, nothing special and quite pricey for such an average tasting meal. We'll be going further afield in future for our takeaways and for eating in.

Thank Tom W
