One of my favorite Tuscaloosa restaurants. Good for dining in & for take out. Really nice staff (once I couldn't find cardamon pods for a recipe--I called & they gave me some). The food is consistently good, and I find the degree of heat (always medium for us) also consistent.

Sitar is my favorite restaurant in Tuscaloosa! The lunch buffett is always great and so are the entrees. Service is friendly and very accomodating. I know Crimson2Go delivers from Sitar, and the restaurant itself may as well. Delicious and never disappoints!

Sitar has a great Indian cuisine. If you aren't sure about Indian food, go on a week day and get the buffet so you can try it all. You won't regret it! Great service and affordable.

Their lunch buffet is fantastic. Seems authentic (at least to an American). Rice pudding, Naan bread, various chicken and vegetarian dishes.

I always order the Ckicken Tikka Masala with a side of the garlic nan and it is always made fresh and they have yet to fail me on the taste and quality! They give a great serving, I always have leftovers that could be a meal the next day. If you are ever in Tuscaloosa and you want authentic Indian... More
