The two of us had the buffet lunch at Sitar Indian Restaurant. The Quality of the food was only mediocre, for example, the Raita was sour and the Tikki Masala was bland. The buffet was NOT replenished in a timely way. The service was Very Good, but could not offset the disappointing food. If you want Indian cuisine in this... More

There are now several Indian restaurants in the Madison Huntsville area but the Sitar remains my favorite. I always order off the menu and am never disappointed. You can customize your order to how spicy you want the meal to be which I like. The service is always great. Don't have to flag down a waiter to get your glass... More

Super authentic cuisine. Well stocked and varied dishes offered - particularly for the non spicy eater. Buffet had several vegetable dishes, varied chicken offerings and nice sauces as well as unusual desserts. Clean and presentable dining room and good service. Great bang for the buck.

We tried Sitar because of a bogo coupon and discovered they have a $10 buffet on Sunday's. We used our coupon but the buffet was very popular. We had a buranyi three meat dish and a spicy lamb entree. Both were fresh and well seasoned. Special orders were perfectly attended to. Large servings and good service. We will definitely be...

I was so excited to find an Indian restaurant while traveling away from home that I really had my hopes up in anticipation of some of my favorite dishes. This meal was very disappointing to say the least. I ordered take out to enjoy at my hotel, and the order was ready when expected, and the prices were reasonable. Unfortunately... More

We were looking forward to trying out this place but probably will not return. We were here for the lunch buffet. They probably tone down the dishes for some customers but I think the Huntsville crowd are looking for more flavors than that.

Staff was great, service was fast, food is DELICIOUS. I had chicken korma, and it was lovely. They were able to seat our large party and opened doors a few minutes early to get us out of the summer heat, too.

Food is good. It was served within 15 minutes. I have came to this place a few times in the year. It still is as good as it should be. Parking can be crazy as they do not have that many spots when buzy but other than that, it was good place to come and eat.

Not a huge buffet nor the best but I like that they level everything well and the naan bread is always fresh. Good for a taste of India.

The taste and flavors were very good. Neither my wife and I like buffets...they usually have choices we would avoid. However, there were easily 10 different entree choices, so we got to sample a larger variety than we would ever get by ordering off the menu. It appeared ordering from the menu really wasn't an option, although we did order... More
