A History of Indian Food
Around since the early 1990s, they are specialist in both meat and vegetarian dishes of India. Here you will find tandoori, vindaloo, biriyani and korma. The vegetarian selection is impressive with bhurta, chana mushroom, and bhindi bhaji.
Known For Their Butter Chicken
The Tandoori dishes include chicken, fish and lamb and are served with pillau and papad. They also have goat masala, and shahi kofta - Indian style beef balls cooked in spicy sauce. A vegetable thali offers a full assortment of dishes, chutney and dessert. But if you want to know what they feel is their real specialty; they’d tell you Butter Chicken. Whether you have a crowd to feed or you simply have a craving for some of that India Spice, Sitar Indian Restaurant will fit the bill.
