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!

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.
