“The best find in Santa Cruz!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We found Sitar while wandering around Downtown Santa Cruz (Pacific Avenue). What a find!! The prices were so reasonable for the all vegetarian buffet that we came back the next evening too. The food was delicious &, healthy and the choices were plentiful. The service was very friendly. The restaurant was open, airy and clean. An all around super choice!

“Affordable chicken korma”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We go here once a week. They have a cheap buffet. But the main dish dinners are about $7-$12 per plate a la carte vs dinner. Order at the counter. My favorites: chicken korma and butter chicken, if your extra hungry the Tandoori Chicken 8 pieces per serving.
