Today I ate a buffet lunch with an old friend of mine at this restaurant. It was both our first visit and we were very impressed with the service, the food and the atmosphere. It was the ideal place to catch up and enjoy a meal together. I highly recommend this restaurant and will define try be back in the future. Thank you.

Great Food! Great Service! You will be satisfied!

I just went to the Sitar a few days back with a few friends of mine! It was one of our best decisions! We walked in and were warmly welcomed by the elegant servers. They were smiling brightly. They were also wearing such pretty outfits! The restaurant itself was pretty busy but they found a good table for us. We ordered the pakura for an appetizer. It was so good, it came with this delicious sauce as well! Then we had the butter chicken, fish masala, and tarka dall with some rice and naan. The food was absolutely delicious! It was all warm and fresh! The service was really good, food came on time! We all really enjoyed the meal and were left completely satisfied! This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to! We will definitely be back and I will definitely bring more of my friends to give this play a try! Everything was perfect! I highly recommend this place!

We will definitely be back and I will definitely bring more of my friends to give this play a try! There was nothing to complain about! Anyone that could would have to be declared as insane! Everything was absolutely perfect! I highly recommend this place!

Worst service ever!!

Four of us reserved for 6 pm. The restaurant was not very busy(maybe 6 parties including ours). We arrived on time, we directed to sit in a certain section, then asked to move as they were expecting a large party later. By 6:40pm we each had a glass of water, but no one had be over to take a drink order, let alone a dinner one. We will never go back to this restaurant!!!!!!

Excellent food! I have never had Indian food this good!I have tried every place in Ottawa and this place is by far the best. They have fantastic food but when it comes to all you can eat buffet...superb. Any way, service was welcoming and delightful, i would go back again anyday!

Exceptional

I've eaten in a lot of Indian restaurants over the years and have certainly acquired a discriminating taste for this delightfully, rich, spicy food. The Sitar had a quaint and relaxing atmosphere with subtle yet tasteful Indian decor. Service was quick, friendly and engaging. However, the bottom line here is that the food is authenticly delicious. I've tried ALL of the other Indian restaurants in this city and none compare to the Sitar. While no 2 restaurants are alike, what makes this restaurant is the taste of the sauces. I like hot and spicy food, however spicy alone does not make for a pleasureful pallet experience. They got it right here. Highly recommended.

This used to be my favorite Indian restaurant (2000-2004), but sadly the food and service have gone downhill in my opinion. I visited twice in the last 6 months but have not been impressed. I'll have to look to some of the other Indian spots for a new favorite.

Cannot give a perfect score to a buffet. This is a very good Indian resturaunt particularily if you are not a seasoned curry eater. The food is not too spicy and the variety is large enough to suit everyone.
