They are at 60 South 38th Street.  They make a wonderful alternative to McDonald's at 40th and Walnut, if you want to take you and your children and your friends and family for a special treat.  [God Knows McDonald's is literally killing people with the fried foods, the chemically raised and chemically treated foods, the fat, the salt and the pork and the sugar they are serving cannot be made light of and must be avoided in the diet in a real and general sense. This is NOT a persona vendetta against McDonald's, but a plea that we each save our own lives and the lives of others by eating much better.  God knows WE have to get used to eating better food and taking care of our health through the good and better food WE eat. Have you ever thought of how long it takes GOD and Nature to bring forth a salad leaf? And we just crunch down on the little leaf and forget all this after He took the time to Bless us yet another day with food. And then We wonder why He doesn't Bless us with the new money for the new clothes and the new car and the new house we want--the New Church building--when we are destroying ourselves with poison cheese cake and poison sugar and poison sodas. Don't forget that Man and Woman are GOD's most Masterful creations. How do you think He feels about us destroying us by bleaching our hair and doing damage to each other and the earth. This is why our prayers are not answered. ]

To help you get away from McDonalds by walking just a few blocks, Sitar India offers a buffet dinner every day for about $15.00 and it is really great.  The first thing I want to mention is the dessert which was a light dish with chick peas and walnuts.  It was sweet and tasty and quite good.  IT also seemed quite nourishing as well.  They also had many formations of chicken that were in delightful sauces and were quite good. You can eat all you want and there is also fruit salad and regular salad to clean the Colin and make the body healthy.

If you are NOT in for the Buffet, there are also an assortment of other dishes that I think you might want to try and might like [The other dishes may not be available all the time or at lunch. I have to admit that I have only tried the buffet so far, but I will mention some items on the menu that I think you might want to try.]

From the seafood realm there is Curry Shrimp which is in a mildly spiced sauce.  As you may know curry is a spice that generally speaking has many medicinal purposes that make it quite an advantage for the human body and mind and spirit.  It is quite good for you and is one of the reasons why the East Indians have such good health generally as a people.   Curry Shrimp is about $12.99 per person.

Another dish one might want to try is Masala Fish.  This is served with ``exotic spices'' onion, green peppers and tomatoes.  This sounds quite nice and I will have to try it the next time I am in the Sitar India Restaurant.

By the Way, this restaurant, which is within walking distance from my house in West Philadelphia near 38 and Sansom, is very nicely designed and the furniture and architecture is quite pleasing to the eye.  It really allows one to relax and enjoy the person or people you might have brought with you
or just dine peacefully alone.  The service staff was also quite nice, polite and helpful and even made a suggestion that I have Indian Tea instead of regular tea, which was really, really quite good. I want to mention one other surprise I discovered upon visiting this fine restaurant again.  There is a sweet and pungent plum sauce you can put on the salad that is absolutely found in a place of perfect taste and greatness. Don't forget to try it. It is of course purple and with the salads and the salad dressing.

 I had a problem with my credit card that I wasn't at all expecting and instead of getting upset with me the management let me pay the $5. tip a few days later when I had more cash money.  This is something they didn't even have to do for me and I was quite fortunate, lucky and happy that they allowed this.  I, or course, paid the money back in a few days, so there was no incident or problem.  It is always nice to have nice people who are forgiving of our little mistakes and human frailties, isn't it. Call them to ask when they are open at   They deliver also.  Make joyful noises in your life and move forward.....
