Always good. Always fresh. Always satisfied. Eat there today.
Delicious Indian Food! – Thank you guys for bringing those Indian flavor into our plates! I love Indian food and their spices, and I love this place!
Very Very Very Worst Food and Hazardous to Health – Food very very very bad, hazardous to health eating soda is added to food, wont be able to eat.
When ordered separate Chicken Biryani got a bowl which is made up of white rice mixed with chicken curry present in buffet section, little color, corriander, and sprinkles of masala thats it.
Staff is bad at serving.
RUDE STAFF AND FOOD IS BELOW AVERAGE – If you believe anyone of the 44-45 reviews that is here believe this one. I am a certified Indian food fanatic. I eat Indian food at least 4 days each week. All of the Indian resturants in town know me by name or at least by face so suffice ti to say I know a little bit about Indian food to say the least. This place is not all that great. I guess it is better than nothing if you are desperate and simply must get your hands on some Indian food but it is FAR, FAR from being the best. The food just isn't seasoned as well as most other places and I have been trying to figure out why the place stays so busy and my conclusion is that it is becuase of sites like this one. First of all it is conveniently located right near downtown and if someone is new to town they are going to visit the first one that pops up on the list and has lots of seemingly positive reviews. I wonder if they pay people to write good reviews because off all the friends of mine that have gone there none have given such gushing reviews and all prefer food from other Indian resturants. So I think they are just popular with people who are new to town and just go with the first name they see or with people who don;t have much experience with Indian food and don;t know the good from the bad. Also they ae very rude at this resturant. I have seen them be very short with customers and have a very condescending take it or leave it air which is very unbecoming in the hospitality industry. I am not here to start a war between resturants with my comments but if you want truly GREAT Indian food my favorite is Bombay Palace on West End. They are really, I mean really niceand the food is PHENOMENAL! That is my personal favorite and friends of mine that are in culinary school are also obsessed with Bombay Palace not Bombay Grill that is a totally separate and not so great place. But If you are one of those people who never heeds the warning then go ahead and try Sitar for yourself and I am most certain you will not come away with the feeling that you just had a great experience But if you have time and money to waste suit yourself. I'll see you at Bombay Palace, The Woodlands, Shalimar or anywhere else except this unwelcomig, substandard food serving place.
Decent Side of Mediocre – Sitar's buffet is tasty for the price, don't get me wrong. But as others have noted, it feels a little like you're eating leftovers. The food isn't really authentic, the spices are fairly generic and bland, and everything seems a bit watered down. It's not bad--it's just not as flavorful and fresh as it could be if they expended a little more effort. As with every Indian restaurant we've tried in Nashville, they use too much oil in their dishes. But it's the only Indian place in reasonable walking distance from Vanderbilt, and the price (around $9) isn't too shabby. For a bit more money you can get significantly better Indian food at Bombay Palace on West End, but by the relatively low standards of the 21st/West End area this place isn't bad.
Merits out weigh demerits – The food here is great. I strongly recommend the chicken tikka masala and the naan is to die for!!! They have their own parking and a hookah bar next door. As for the matter of the owner. He is a great man and watt he does in his personal life is none of our business thank you Jason.
BEWARE OF OWNERS/MGR – DO NOT EAT HERE, OWNERS are Theives and will take your money....THEY GOT SERIOUS PROBLEMS
RUDE RUDE RUDE OWNER AND STAFF!!!!! – Their food is mediocre and would probably TASTE better, if you didn't feel like you were a "burden" just being there. It is ridiculous that you feel so invisible, when you are paying a pretty penny! Very rude, non-friendly, waste of money, really. Try Shalimar in Green Hills....YUMMY and nice people! Also, it is cheaper to go to Trader Joe's, buy some frozen indian food and heat it up! Wow...you would think you were getting expensive upscale Indian food!
THERE'S A REASON SITAR WINS EVERY POLL EVERY YEAR: – Because it's the best indian food in Nashville, that's why. Not only in my opinion, but the opinions of Nashville periodicals who make these kinds of judgements every day. They know what they're talking about.
I, for one, have never had bad service, or even mediocre service, it's always ALWAYS been utterly stellar. Maybe it's because I treat the staff like human beings, go figure, and they're glad to see me, remember me by name, remind me when I forget to order Garlic Naan... I've tried 3 other Indian places and they're all a joke compared to SITAR.
best best – easy way to say it best indian reasturent in town. food is great ,service is excellent. we have been going to sitar since 1997. the best in town
