Months after being evicted from their longtime home earlier this year, Tuscaloosa's Sitar Indian Cuisine has announced they will reopen in their new location on 15th Street Thursday.

The restaurant made its announcement on Facebook Sunday, with the caveat that they will feature a limited menu and serve carryout customers only. Don't worry, though, Sitar said they will be fully reopening soon, including dine-in options and a buffet.

Sitar also announced a temporary $2.99 surcharge to most menu items because of meat shortages caused by COVID-19 that are inflating food preparation costs.

"Rest assured the charge is only temporary, and we will be reducing or removing it as soon as our costs come back down, but we would rather add this charge than sacrifice quality," the post read.

The new location will open Thursday at 220 15th Street East, next to Wendy's.

Pedestrians looking for signs may find it hard, but Sitar reassured readers that despite a lack of prominent signage outside the building, they will be fully operational Thursday.

Sitar Indian Cuisine is open Tuesday through Sunday, serving lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and dinner from 5-9:30 p.m.
