“Decent Indian -- For Santa Cruz”

Sitar Indian Cuisine
Ranked #121 of 388 Restaurants in Santa Cruz
Cuisines: Indian
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This low key Indian restaurant offers both a small vegetarian buffet, and a small menu of dishes cooked (or warmed) to order. The food is generally fresh and well-prepared. Our favorite Indian restaurants are over the hill in Silicon Valley, but this little spot is a nice option for lunch or dinner without the long drive. And it's one of the greatest food bargains in town!

We love to stop here when we are in Santa Cruz and partake of the all-you-can eat vegetarian lunch buffet! Lots of delicious options and very filling. Price is right too...we can eat for two for under 20 bucks! If you are downtown, go there!

We've eaten here at least once a year for the last three years and we've enjoyed every meal. My wife gets the all-you-can-eat vegetarian buffet, which is a great value. I don't much care for vegetarian food, but what I've tried of hers has been excellent and really fresh for a buffet. I usually opt for the chicken variety platter, which is chicken three ways, all of which are really good. You can really get a lot of tasty and well-prepared food for not a lot of money, which explains why the place is often full of students. We're already looking forward to our next visit!

Go for lunch esp. if you're hungry for East Indian food. I love this place, cool location, handy to downtown, very reasonable prices.
Only wish the chai... thin and a little tasteless. Order mango lassi instead of tea.

They had a nice vegetarian buffet. You had to purchase meat separately. The cooked to order was very delicious and flavorful.
