Azitra Ratings and Reviews

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
Fabulous Indian Food
We were traveling to Raleigh and found that all of our familiar restaurants had been booked. I found this on Open Table under the Durham listing but soon realized that it was in Raleigh so we took the "risks" What a fabulous find, it was a beautiful March evening and we cinched the fire pit table and had both fabulous food and great ambience. We were quite excited to find that there was a sister restaurant in Williamsburg where we will be over Memorial Day.
Can't believe we did know about this place
Lived in Brier Creek for a few years and we are always disgruntled at the lack of quality / craft food and bars as it is laden with mediocre chain restaurants. Somehow we overlooked this place and went for the first time this past weekend. Great spot for quality indian food and very attentive and professional waitstaff. We ate inside, but it does look like they have a nice outdoor seating area and we look forward to eating there again.
Christmas Eve Dinner
I decided that the holidays were too hectic for me to cook Christmas Eve dinner. Our family of 5 includes 2 vegetarians and 3 lovers of spicy foods. Azitra satisfies everyone. Naan bread is delicious here. Nice variety of starters. I had the soup of the day, tomato with just a bit of spicy heat-yummy! Though some were originally sorry that we were not having our traditional dinner, as we left the restaurant on our way to church, the consensus was that we had established a new tradition!

Great food but the service is a bit erratic. Staff doesn't seem to be in sync, but enjoyed it nonetheless. One dish (channa masala) was so spicy my friend couldn't even eat it, but they quickly brought a delicious alternative (the lentils).

The crispy cauliflower appetizer was great, as was the Tikki Masala. Don't try to share one order of the garlic naan, you're going to want another! Wine list has a lot of variety but was too overpriced (a bottle I often get at a restaurant not far away was $15 more). Will definitely return.
I had lunch with 5 others to celebrate a friend's birthday. We did not make any arrangements in advance with Azitra. I did ask when we arrived that the bill be split between five of us. We gave cards to the birthday person. At the end of our delicious lunch, the waiter arrived with a beautiful dessert on a big plate that had happy birthday written in chocolate and strawberry. That is extra special service!!
Azitra is a place to unwind and enjoy great food!
The food was amazing and the way it was prepared really took your taste buds to a new level! Great service, very professional yet down to earth! Really had a great experience and the food was authentic. I would recommend if your looking to try Indian food for the first time, this is the place.
