We've been going to Sitar for years and have always loved every part of our experience here. We've been particularly pleased with their efforts more recently to continuously reevaluate their offerings and find new ways to improve things for their customers. The buffet is a great mixture between staple items and a few new foods every time we come. The restaurant is always clean and nicely decorated, and you can't find a better staff. Whenever we have a chance to talk to Ram, his effusive welcoming personality leaves our day feeling a little bit brighter!

Great place for having lunch buffet with family and friends. The food is tasty and they have huge varieties. This one is a budget/pocket friendly place for buffet. Recommended. Visited Sitar again with family and friends for lunch, we enjoyed our time here once again with a good buffet and great great service. I would like to thank Rakesh, Benny, Firoz and Nabi for great service. Will be visiting again soon...

This place is my favorite place to go when I need warm comfort food that is tasty and still leaves me walking!! This place makes me feel like family and is basically my second home. The service is 10/10 and the atmosphere is so welcoming. Always cracking jokes and making everyone smile! -Annabelle and Keshnie

Sitar is simply, hands down THE BEST authentic Indian restaurant in the RDU area!! I have tried many and there is no comparison. I love Ram, Firooz and the whole entire staff!! They are warm, welcoming, accommodating and attentive! The atmosphere is great and food is AMAZING!! I travel from Clayton/Garner area and have never had a bad experience or food. I highly recommend Sitar, trust me, you won’t be disappointed!!

This establishment is one of the reasons why I love where I live so much. My family has been coming to this restaurant for over a decade now and it never gets tiring or old. The owners and employees of Sitar have cultivated an overall truly delightful space to enjoy both through food and atmosphere. They exemplify the essence of a welcoming host and always make both myself and those I bring very comfortable. Over the times I have enjoyed here, there are quite a few employees who have truly made us feel at home. Ram is an excellent server who always says hello and makes sure we have everything we need, for which I am truly grateful. I cannot recommend this establishment enough to anyone looking for delicious food surrounded by kind people and a wonderful atmosphere.

I don't give 5 ⭐ often but all the categories I gave 5 ⭐ for this establishment. Absolutely the BEST I've had in North Carolina. Greatly disappointed they offered no dishes with lamb or goat. The selection was massive and all dishes a delight but too heavy on chicken. I can appreciate the "American" palette doesn't fancy goat but that's no reason to cater to small palettes. I could give 5 star on that alone. Beautiful restaurant and service was spot on and attentive. Price point is correct for the fare offered. Maybe I'll try a week night and not Sat for lunch. Keep up the excellent service👏👏👏😋👍

Enjoyed a satisfying and delicious dinner tonight at Sitar’s special vegan buffet. So many fresh and flavorful choices with such personable service. I never write reviews, but I wanted everyone to know that their vegan food is not to be missed! Enjoyed my birthday here tonight, but won’t wait until a special occasion to visit again!

Had a carry out from the all you can eat lunch buffet. Best, you pick what you like from a large array of items…they add a cup for dessert and 2 huge naans.

I absolutely love this place! The lunch buffet during the weekdays and dinner buffet on weekends are always delicious and fresh. If you are looking for authentic Indian Cuisine at a reasonable price with great service to match, give this place a try. You won’t be disappointed! 😊

We came here for the mom's day special. It's $19.95/person. We all loved the food. All the dishes were flavorful and yummy. Spicy level is slightly above mild for low spicy tolerance, which is not too bad. There were so many different kinds of desserts and we enjoyed them a lot. Protein option is mainly chicken. Itd be nice if there's lamb. Lamb Curry is my favorite! Nice vibe and service. Will for sure be back!

I travel a good bit and I LOVE Indian food. With that being said, I'm always looking for Indian restaurants to try out. This place not only has a great atmosphere but excellent food as well! I will definitely be coming back and will tell others about it!

The buffet had 4 different kinds of breads, many dishes with chicken, curry coconut swai, several vegetable dishes, 2 types of tandoori chicken, 2 soups, lots of chutneys and sauces. All were well cooked/seasoned. The desert table had 9 different Indian desserts. We were there on a Saturday so I'm not sure if weekday buffets includes the hot masala tea and mango/pineapple drink that was included in our meal ($16.95). The service was great. Our plate was cleared within minutes of emptying. The decor was tasteful with a full mural of beautiful Indian ladies colorful dress. Soothing background music completed the relaxing atmosphere. We are visiting our son who's working in town for a few months. Wish we lived closer than 9 hours away. Would definitely come often..

Visiting with 14 people tonight while on business. Waitstaff was amazing, appetizers were awesome, the garlic Naan bread is something I'd come back for, and the Lamb Curry was delicious! The owner came out to make sure everything was okay as well! Very nice place I'd recommend anyone to dine! Very authentic!
