Very interesting items on the menu and lunch buffet that are so unique to Indian cooking. One of my favs is their baked chicken and another their lentil dish. Try it!

I was meeting someone here for dinner, and ordered the Bengan Bhurtha, with medium spice. I was afraid that might be too much, but it was just right. The food was fantastic, and the servers were friendly and helpful.

The food is excellent. We love the lamb saag (spinach) and of course, garlic naan. They also serve goat (with bones)! At lunch, the buffet has a nice selection of chicken and vegetarian dishes plus sides. The mango lassis are the best. On par with the food, the service is both friendly and efficient. Our water glasses never near empty... More

My husband is English and a lot of our friends are European, so when they visit or my husband wants to eat like home, we go to Sitars. I really hadn't had Indian food until I met him, but now wonder why I never tried it! There is nothing at this restaurant that I don't like or have tried that... More

Wonderful meal with lots of variety. The device was excellent and food came quickly. The portions were very generous. We were in town for the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the food at this gem. Great vegetarian options!

Called in with arrival time of 9:35 pm knowing they close at 10. They were welcoming. Didn't get rushed. Person ( forgot to get his name) sounded like he may be the owner, was very hospitable and helpful. Food was really good. As close to home cooked as you can expect. Baingan Bharta ( eggplant) and Daal was amazing. We... More
