We were in Hagerstown kind of by accident and hungry. Wanting to avoid a sort of boring chain restaurant, we looked up this place and gave it a try. Boy was it worth it! The food was great, the service was excellent, and the whole place really made for a great meal. My daughter - who is 10 - found... More

A group of nine of us went to dinner this evening. It was a ton of food at reasonable prices. We all ordered different dishes and were able to share. I had never had Indian food before today; I will be back! It was delicious!

The best restaurant in town. We tried out many different restaurants during our stay, but we just ended up here like 4 times. Dont regret a meal. This was the best who really carved for the Indian. Excellent service, and the food was so good. Still dreaming about it. We are from Greece so we would recommend this to every... More

We have tried this restaurant several times, and if you don't want all your food tasting the same with an over load of Cumin then I would suggest to find another restaurant. The owner watches the entire floor all the time, and they get offended if you don't try a suggestion.

We ordered take out because we were with our baby who we wanted to get home. They said 20-25 minutes.. Ok....45 minutes later we still don't have our food. We don't live locally so we are waiting for our food and our 45 minute drive home. Wish they would have been honest about the wait in the first place. This... More

I highly recommend this restaurant for its high quality food. Very traditional and they also have good wines to accompany the meal. I haven't personally taken advantage of the lunch buffet but it looked really decent and I have heard good things!!!

The new owner was actually the chef for four years before taking over the restaurant. Some improvements made to the already excellent flavors and more substance without price increases. Sitar is by far the best Indian restaurant I have had the pleasure of dining at. Not only do they have a great dinner menu but also an excellent lunch buffet.... More

Not really a whole lot to say...the staff seems a bit uninterested but was courteous yet slow on service. Not much of an Indian staff that I could see. The menu has a lot of options but the flavors were lacking in my opinion. The level of spice was a little high for my tolerance and we ordered mild/medium dishes.... More

I wish this restaurant was closer to where I live! They have both a nice buffet and good menue. The same chef has been there for quite a while and he prepares authentic Indian food as well as a bit of fusion cuisine. Servers are friendly and attentive. Meals are very reasonably priced. Great place to visit with friends, family... More

Under new ownership. I miss the way the chicken tikka masala used to taste. It used to be more creamy and heavenly. Now it just tastes like tomato paste. It wasn't terrible but my tastebuds cried a little. The service was slow and you used to never have an empty cup of water. My water was empty for waaaay too... More
