What a lovely surprise it was to find this little hidden gem. We were lucky enough to pop in on a Saturday...late afternoon to find out there was a delicious buffet available for $10.99 + tax. The selections were tasty and hot. The naan bread came out straight from the oven. The folks running the kiosk (family owned) take pride... More

Read mixed reviews of Sitar Indian Cuisine, a restaurant in a food court usually offering lunch for nearby corporate offices. Saturday night is their buffet with plastic plates and utensils of a variety of Indian offerings. Some very good, some seemed older chicken pieces in a high curry sauce of one sort or another. All in all average fare, wouldn't... More

I generally try to avoid food-court restaurants, but I make a point of eating at Sitar whenever I'm in Sorrento Valley. I really cannot tell you my favorite because the Masala Dosa, the Chicken Tikka Masala, and the Chicken Tandoori are all wonderful. Actually - just try it all! We've enjoyed everything we've gotten from here! A note though, I'm... More

I've been to Sitar several times now and it has been consistently good. The quality is better than you would expect from a food court restaurant. The combo's are complete meals with naan, rita and soup for less than $9. Cooked to order the portions are more dinner sized than lunch I'd say. Definitely worth a visit if you're in... More

I have been eating lunch and sometimes dinner at Sitar for at least 10 years and have never been disappointed. I am amazed that more people have not sent in reviews.....perhaps we all take this place for granted since it has been here for so long The quality and flavor of their dishes is remarkable, considering that this is a...

Good and spicy Indian food. That's all I wanted and that's what I got.

A coworker (who is Indian) told my husband about this place. We have been several times for the Saturday night buffet. $11 adult $5.50 for kids (not sure at what age they start charging - we have always been charged). Great tandoori chicken, yummy naan, dosa made to order, good selection of items.... Not the friendliest service, but the food... More
