Great Place for Indian Food 9/30/2008

Dont judge this place by its looks. As someone said that looks can be deceptive. Having a real nice building and bunch of servers that dont know indian food is certainly not what SITAR is known for. But rather its known for its small cozy place that has Excellent found served by young Indian servers that understands the meaning of Hospitality. Be it a dinner or lunch Sitar is always been my best spot. It is one of the best Indian Cuisine in my opinion. It certainly does not have Watery gravy and c...r whatever that mean in their Naans. I have been visiting that place since May 2000.. And not a single time that i have ever had bad experience. I also am aware of the envy amongst some people in the town because of SITAR's performance over the years. Nevertheless what anyone says about this place, I know it is certainly the best Indian food you can find in America....!! Pros: Warm Hospitality, Real Indian dishes, Great Atmoshphere. Cons: Sometimes too crowded, Hard to achieve privacy more

Worst Food ever 9/21/2008

Never ever, I have had food that tasted so bad. The curries were watery and to top it off we found a dead c--- r---- in our naan. I obviously got food poisioning. When I called them to report the issue, the owner said OKAY. No apologies. I don't recommend this restaurant to anyone. If you do visit. eat at your own risk!!! more

good food , bad service 11/10/2007

I am regular going to sitar because I really like their food. They have lunch buffet and they never put the same type of food next day. They are always changing. The food taste is far better at dinner time than lunch buffet. The servers are experienced. I am seeing them for last couple of years. Though the food is excellent, the manager (that fat guy , who claims him as manager but I found that he lied to me later..) is very very rude. I can see most of the time he is arguing with costomers and even with other servers. Most of the time they talk very loudly. so if you most need a good environment, dont go to sitar, if that is for food, there is no such good place like sitar. more

avoid 365 days 10/3/2007

Sitar food is definetely not meant for Indians. The buffet menu is same almost everyday and the base for different vegetarian curry is same. more

Excellent - For an American Curry House 2/18/2007

One of only two in Knoxville -I'll check out Kashmir soon! Pros: Excellent food, excellent service, well lit (can see what you're eating! Cons: You pay a little more - worth it. more

Must Try 10/25/2006

The food is excellent. I recommend the Lamb or Chicken Korma and Chicken Vindaloo - the Tandoori's are okay but have been too dry in my opinion. The mulligatawny soup was not to my liking. The naan bread....both keema (lamb) naan and the piswari (sweet) naan is awesome. If you love spicy hot and ask for the hottest, be prepared...they will make it so hot that you will regret it later that night. :o) They're attentive with refilling your water glasses (not so much the other drinks). It's a small place and it sometimes gets loud because people are trying to talk over one another. The service can be a little slow, especially when there are only 2-3 of the guys actually doing the orders when there is a group or busy because it seems everyone asks questions about the dishes and it takes so long for them to decide. The guys have a tendency to focus on one table at a time and will pass you by unless you get their attention. But when it's slow, there's no problem. The food is great though and I'm a return customer every 2 wks for the past 2 yrs. Price isn't too bad. The lunch buffet is okay but not great. Pros: taste of the food and quantity, free papadum and dipping sauces as appetizer Cons: gets too noisy since it's a small place more

Best Indian in Knoxville 2/13/2006

Though the exterior is a bit shabby, don't let it put you off. Sitar is the best Indian around. The staff are extremely friendly and the food is delicious. The place has a real vibe - college professors, blue collar workers, etc. all find common ground over the samosas. Pros: friendly servers, delicious food, fast service Cons: outside not "pretty" more

Best Indian Food In Knoxville 3/18/2004

Sitar delivers consistently good Indian food in a convenient West Knoxville location. Like Kashmir, its buffet is of lower quality than the food on the menu, but it's still good. It's not the best Indian food in the world (or even in Tennessee -- try Maurya in Brentwood), but it is the best in Knoxville, and worth the drive. Pros: Excellent food more
