For the first time in my life I've seen jazz-style indian restaurant.... Red&black deco with some pictures of jazzmans on the walls makes an atmosphere which you cannot find in any other indian restaurant.
Service really friendly and food delicious for a decent price.
Highly recommend as a (I would say) our little "pearl" among all the places in these area.
Two words. Lamb Phaal. I was phucking crapping flaming bricks after this trip to the JAZZ Sitara. But let's take it back to the beginnings of this love affair.
The name itself rendered me slightly skeptical, passing by this place on my way home...but one rainy evening the housemates and I decided to order some take away. The naan was amazing, along with all the josh rogan, tikki masala, and even some run of the mill vindaloo that I've never strayed away from since the days of living in norcal. Delivery was fast, and the complimentary papadoms/chutney were delicious.
As mentioned earlier, the only time I've actually sat-in and dined here was a night to remember. I was pleasantly surprised by the fusion of jazz and...sitara (appropriate name for the restaurant...). Although the constant need to yell at the top of your lungs to your friends across the table reminded me of trying to communicate in a club, the food was again awesome. We also got complimentary drinks at the end our meal because we managed to finish the Lamb Phaal, although I had to step outside a few times and wipe all the meat sweats off my face...
A lovely little place just down from Archway station. It's slightly unusual in that it's an Indian that plays jazz music - I've even seen live jazz bands performing as I've walked past. The décor is lovely, if a little dark, the waiters friendly and helpful. The day I visited there was a goat curry on special that was, frankly, delicious. The waiter also recommended we have some daal to go with it, which worked wonderfully. There's an unusual choice of naan, good selection on the menu, price is average and not too busy. Highly recommended.
I've been here several times now. It's unusual to find a jazz themed Indian restaurant, and makes an interesting change to sitars etc. The walls are decorated with pictures of jazz men, in a sort of dark black and red theme. The food is excellent. I must admit that on my first occasion I thought that the portions looked a little bit small, but I was not able to finish everything, so obviously there must have been just enough. The staff are friendly, but without being in your face. Prices are reasonable for the quality. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who fancies a curry with a difference!
Excellent INdian restaurant with an interesting Jazz theme, ie jazz music (recorded not live) is played, but not too loudly so as to inhibit conversation. The food is excellent, although comparatively expensive for the area. The sort of place I would recommend for a celebration or party, but not for every day eating out. I'm not sure if there is a take-away service but if so it is not obtrusive. I often get put off a restaurant if I am eating in and there is a constant stream of people coming in and out for take aways.
