This is one of my favorite go-to places. We go at least once a month and try new things everytime. If you like Indian and want an authentic experience - GO HERE! And they will be creative with you about things not on the menu!

First time there. Had a choice of Indian restaurants that were open on Mondays in the Raleigh area. I was very happy with all the food. Also, the staff in the front was outstanding. We found something to eat from the ages of 4 to 67. That is not always an easy thing for a seating of 12 people.

Been here innumerable times... The food is always good. Had an especially great time this time around. We were celebrating NYE. Had great drinks and of course the food was excellent. Loved the chaat of the day and my staple, chicken tikka masala. We put in another order to go so we could enjoy the food next day. Place is usually quiet but noise level was moderate that evening due to occasion.

Overall I thought it was a good find for the money, with the only exception being out waitress. She kind of snubbed us throughout the meal, barely checked on us, and kept messing up our order. She seemed relieved when we left even though we were nothing but kind and (being vegan) I tried to ask questions about the menu and if substitutions could be made and was met with a very stern no. This is fine, but I do wish she were nicer about it. The food was great and very authentic burn your mouth an open your nose spicy (how I like it!). So I give it a 4/5 for the crabby waitress.

What attracted us to Azitra was its recent inclusion on Open Table's top 10 restaurants in the area. I have to admit, we hadn't heard of Azitra before. We had a wonderful meal, loved the cauliflower appetizer, Gobhi Manchurian. The entrees, Eggplant Bhartha and Chicken Dhaba Handi were spicy and delicious. The atmosphere was simple and elegant, and the service was very professional.

We go there for many of our special occasions and have had them cater a party for us. The food is wonderful, the portions good, and the service friendly. The dining room is modern, sleek, but not too noisy. We've enjoyed every visit.

The lamb shank peshwari was particularly good, lamb was very tender and tasty. Service was very attentive. Overall an excellent dinner, albeit a little expensive compared to other Indian restaurants. The surroundings, food and service more than compensated for the high price

Delightful experience from start to finish. Quiet pleasant environment, with a respectful but non-invasive staff who made us feel welcome. Delicious starters (especially the cauliflower!) and naan, perfectly prepared and tastefully presented entrees. The Azitra tea was superb. We will be returning!
Please screen the kitchen!
The food at Azitra is excellent and the service is good. It's our favourite spot for Indian food in the Triangle. It would be improved if they could screen off the kitchen doors. We recently went for a birthday supper and were seated right in front of the kitchen and treated to kitchen noise and views into the kitchen while we were eating. Nothing bad, it just would have been a lot nicer without that!

Azitra is by far the best Indian food in the triangle... The owners are the greatest people we know... We drive 1 1/2 hr to taste their great food... The help is the best... Don't even think of eating anywhere in Raleigh than Azitra... In from NYC and I know Indian food.... Thanks Azitra we love ya
