This is one of the best restaurants in Durham. The food is outstanding and if you're not familiar with Indian cuisine, the buffet will give you a good tour of well-labeled options that are fresh and delicious. For a special treat though, please order off the menu because the dishes stand out. I could be imagining it, but everything tastes better when ordered off the menu. Also if you have special requests like extra spicy or less spicy, this is the best way to accommodate you. Also make it a point to try every dish, some dishes I've only seen in this restaurant and they are all fantastic. If you're fond of the buffet-style eating though, your meal will be fast and incredibly delicious, and a good value. The family that runs Sitar have got to be the most friendly and helpful group of people ever. They remember you after only a few visits and are always glad to greet you by name when you're a regular.

I love Indian food and have been wanting to try this place for the longest! My friend recently treated me to dinner here, and I loved it! He got food from their buffet, which I didn't feel comfortable with given that we're still in a pandemic so I opted to order from the menu. I've also never really been fond of buffets. I ordered the fish malabar, which was SPECTACULAR! It was a lot of food so I only ate half of it and finished the rest the next day for lunch. They have many options to choose from, and you can always stick with what they have at the buffet. My friend really liked it. This is the perfect place for a date night or to enjoy quality time with friends. They have ample parking, a nice view from the window where we sat, and they sometimes have live music, which we will likely go back for. The staff were kind, and their food is reasonably-priced. This is the best Indian food I've had in the Triangle area so I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you try it!

I've lived in a number of cities over the years and I've traveled to every State but Alaska and I feel I have a good range of experiences with restaurants, Indian included. I've enjoyed a bunch of Indian restaurants in the Triangle yet they all must be compared to Sitar for them to make the grade. I've set the bar at Sitar which is a great designation in my book. I'd say Sitar always allows me to explore new dishes and set new standards. My suggestion: Test out Sitar and make a list of what you like. Then try those same dishes at other restaurants. See who wins! For me, in nearly every case, it's Sitar for the win.

Always love coming here when we’re in town. Came on a Wednesday for lunch. $13.95 adult, $8 for 8 yr old and $7 for 5 yr old. Didn’t ask ages. My kids are tall. Service was friendly and food good. Could use a little more spice but they generally have the same thing every time we’re here and very mild so kids enjoy
