My husband and I were on a random road trip to Warwick and were staying at The Grand Hotel nearby – on our search for a nice place to eat, we stumbled across the tiny but beautiful Seetar restaurant.
I’ll be honest – the main reason we chose to eat there was the beautiful, inviting front to the restaurant. Twinkling lights, candles, Indian decoration and a little red carpet all added up to an attractive exterior I couldn’t resist! So, on a whim, we booked a table (good thing we did, as the restaurant packed out pretty quickly) and then came back later for the meal.
One member of staff was friendly and personable, full of smiles and good humour – however, the rest of the staff seemed disinterested and unengaged with their guests, with little to no eye contact and no smiles. A smile doesn’t cost a thing, but in my book it goes a long way.
However, this is the ONLY reason it doesn’t get five stars. The meal was delicious, possibly one of the best Indians I have ever had, and I’m usually very picky about Indian food! The food portions were just right; we all left the restaurant a little less comfortable but very, very full! The atmosphere was lovely, and it was obvious there were a few couples there that came every Saturday to eat, which was great.
All in all, a superb meal – the lamb could have been a little more tender and less stringy, but the peshwari naan was to die for, as was the poppadom starter and serving platters. Wonderful, wonderful, well worth it for a reasonable meal. We paid about £15 per person for dinner – on a Saturday!! – plus drinks. Awesome.

Good quality restaurant, probably the best of the many Indian restaurants on this small street.
A little more expensive than the Sunam by the clock tower which is a worthy contender, but the quality here is a little higher.
Worth a try.
