Being only Indian restaurant, I wasn't expecting this restaurant to be so good. The ambience, service and food were amazing. It was very satisfying dinner after tiring day. The samosa, garlic naan n bed curry were delicious, lussy was fantastic. If you want to experience good Indian food, definitely this is the one to try.

Unlike other Indian restaurants in town, Sitar has been fresh each time. With a great lunch selection (and buffet option), it's where we go. Their vegetable pakora is great! Plus, the buffet time frame is broad like 12-2pm. So plenty of time to get there. The staff is always friendly, efficient, and willing to make the experience positive. Check it... More

I had very bad experience. There food is not fresh. It took me 5 minutes to find clean plate. I got upset stomach after eating there food. Moreover they fight for tips. Worse experience i ever had in my life.

My wife and I have a favorite Indian restaurant near our home, and we frequent it fairly often. This week we are on vacation in Chattanooga with our son. We talked him into the very reasonably priced lunch buffet here, telling him that he can get a good sampling of the Indian flavors and food this way. I expected an... More

We ended up here when another restaurant had closed right at 9 pm on a thursday. The staff were very inviting and we got seated and served quickly. We had 2 soups (Tomato was spicy and tangy while coconut was rich and slightly sweet). We also ordered puri, chapati, and garlic/Chilly naan. All the breads were solid. For the main... More

Had dinner at this restaurant after our visit to Nashville. A good Indian restaurant with delicious items in the menu, both vegetarian and non vegetarian. Food was good and tasty worth the price you pay. Service was good and fast. Those who are longing for good Indian food can visit this place while in Chattanooga.

I have been a regular at Sitar, Chattanooga since 2006... when they were still at their old location. Of the many items I have ordered from their menu and the various times I have eaten their lunch buffet, I have never been less than 100% satisfied with the quality of the food and service. Sitar staff are some of the... More

This is a great place! They are downtown now on Market Street. I went on lunch with a friend that hasnt had Indian either. They were so polite to us they went with us to the bar and explained what the foods were. Their buffet food is mild and not spicy so dont be afraid to go try them. I... More
