Azitra Ratings and Reviews
This was okay. The chicken tikka masala wasn't as good as I have had in other places, but the curried pepper chicken and lamb vindaloo were delicious. I think it's over priced...about $20.00/ entree. As delicious as the food was, I think there are better, less expensive Indian options in the Triangle. The service was really fast. We were done in 30 minutes, which would have been great for lunch, but too fast for a night out.
One of the most authentic Indian restaurants out there in Research Triangle area.
I went yesterday for dinner with a few friends. We did book a table in advance from OpenTable since it was a friday evening.
We started with gobi machurian and dahi bhalla chat, followed it achaani vegetable, dal makhani, dal tadka, malai kofta(best part of the dinner) and some breads. Every one of us loved the food. They have really good desserts too, definitely try the gulabjamuns and ras malai. In drinks we kept it somewhat simple, with mango lassi and lemonades.
Definitely a place to dine-in more often and worth the cost.
Arrived early (5pm) as we were starving! ..so we cancelled our 6:30pm Open Table reservations. They were very accommodating, friendly, happy that we came early. Lamb Saag & Leg of Lamb are our favorites. Split scallop appetizer which was large enough for a meal...perfectly grilled huge scallops. Interesting wine and liquor list. We went to Raleigh area specifically! to dine at Azitra...decided to shop and stay overnight since it's 2 + 1/2 hrs. drive each way!...well worth the trip. We are anxious to "do lunch" sometime soon as the prices are reasonable and the menu diverse. Chic decor!!
We have eaten at Azitra many times and think it is the best Indian cuisine in the Triangle. Our food was delicious, as always. Beautifully prepared and served. Must have is a basket of Naan. I could eat that by itself and think it was a perfect meal! But with the lamb/broccoli dish I had (don't remember the name) it was a perfect compliment My husband had a salmon dish in a cream tomato sauce and he was also impressed. Just a great experience.
I met a friend here for dinner on a Friday night. My friend is gluten free and dairy free, and the waitress helped her find a great dinner option. The food was delicious and we were able to sit and talk for hours without feeling rushed. My husband and I have also come here numerous times for dinner and have always loved it!
after reading the positive reviews by others i was disappointed to have such a forgettable experience. the service really was amateur and intermittent, and it was not as if the place was packed with other diners to take care of. food was ok, but nothing special, more like the indian food you get at the places that have the all you can eat buffet at lunch. not a soul said "thank you" as we left, truly a telling sign for any restaurant.
Entrees were delicious. Service was very poor, very slow to initially come to table, not friendly at all, manager greeted and conversed with tables around us repeatedly but never once stopped at our table. Waiter acted exasperated when we requested separate checks. Poor, Poor service. The only thing that would draw me back would be a strong craving for indian. Again, food was good. Poor service outweighed it!
I should have gotten the Indian Food!!! I got a salad and had a piece of salmon added to it, thinking it would come out as a salmon fillet.. I literally got maybe 2 oz of salmon that was shredded into my salad. It also came with apples. I had one apple slice.. My guest couldn't believe that I paid that much for the measley salad. Very disappointed!!!
We went for Valentine's Day dinner. Table was ready, seated immediately. Server came to our table right away for drink orders. When we weren't ready to order a drink until we had decided on an entree, he allowed us the time to do this then came back. Drinks came quickly. Placed our entree order which also came within an excellent time frame to allow us to sit, enjoy our glass of wine, and chat. Food came with hot naan at the same time--not served before the meal so that it sits and gets cold before the food arrives. Presentation was excellent. Food was dynamite! There was spinach in my dish of rack of lamb which was outstanding, so much so that I ordered an extra portion of just spinach--not on the menu--which was given to me at no charge. Food is spot on, excellent quality, and absolutely delicious. Restaurant is so clean it glistens.
My husband and I had a good meal at Azitra -- the food was fresh, not overly seasoned, and well prepared. My only complaint was the service. Our server was completely impassive and inattentive. She took our order and then disappeared for the majority of our meal. Our appetizer and entrees were quickly tossed onto our table by a kitchen runner, who never paused to ask if we had everything we needed. Which we did not, as the glass of wine I ordered 30 minutes prior had yet to show up. Our original server did finally swing back by the table as we were finishing up to deliver the errant glass of wine, without so much as an apology for its excessive tardiness. In the meantime, our water glasses has gone unfilled for the entire duration of our meal, even as numerous wait staff dashed through the dining room carrying full pitchers. All in all, I left feeling ignored and somewhat ill-treated. The food was good, but I won't rush back.
The food was AMAZING. The service was incredible. We didn't know it was Indy Restaurant Week, which had its own special menu for $30 a person. It was perfect, including a 1st course, main course, and dessert. Again it was the best Indian food I've ever had.
My only two complaints are the noise level made it impossible to have a conversation for the first hour we were there, but as other diners left the noise went down and we could talk. Also we were seated at a table with a chair and a booth bench. The table was really tiny, even for 2 people. It would have been nicer to be a bit more comfortable. The bench was also lower than the chair making it a bit more awkward.
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.
Decent Indian food- more on the expensive side for what it is, but certainly enjoyable. The weekend brunch deal is a pretty great opportunity to try it out. Wine selection is also pretty solid for what I was expecting. Azitra can range from a nice family dinner to a nice venue for a date- I would recommend trying it.
