Azitra Ratings and Reviews
Excellent and attentive staff and delicious, authentic Indian cuisine. If you're having trouble deciding which dish to choose, just ask your host or server and they will give you great recommendations. They also will be happy to alter your spice level depending upon your preference.
And if you're in the mood for an ice-cold beer and a spicy meal, try out the Flying Horse 22 oz. lager paired with the Pershwari lamb shank (or lamb vindaloo).
Had a reservation for 4 on a Saturday evening and the place was hopping which was expected. It was a tad loud, but that's not a big deal for us, just throwing that out there. We were seated promptly and after ordering, our food came out pretty quickly. No complaints from our group, but there were no connoisseurs among us. I wish they showcased more local beers since there is such a vibrant craft brew scene in the area. My only complaint would be that they seemed to be rushing out out. Seemed that as soon as we finished, the staff wanted to clear the table and get us out. Could be a cultural thing... European and Brazilian restaurants are the opposite.
Some friends and I decided on a last-minute outing this past weekend. We had quite a few options, but unanimously we voted Azitra for our dinner plans. Amazing food, friendly staff. We ordered chicken tikka masala, lamb vindaloo, goat biryani and paneer with an assortment of breads and shared family style. Everything was delicious. Price on target for the portion of food the offer... Highly recommend Anitra
I've been coming to the restaurant for at least 5 years possibly more. I've never had a bad experience. Service and staff has always been top notch. I've told numerous friends and co workers about your restaurant. My family and I will continue to dine at this spot for many years to come. Thanks for the great food and service.
Stopped here because we were in the Briar Creek area for another event. Had seen some positive reviews. It exceeded our expectations. Will be going back even though it's a bit of a drive for us. Food was excellent and they have a decent wine selection and a nice cocktail list.
Best Indian food I've had outside of India! Our family of eight enjoyed a real feast for Mother's Day luncheon, following a momentous university graduation ceremony in Chapel Hill.
Chose this spot based on Open Table reviews and availability. Really exceeded expectations.
The samosa were so aromatic - we ordered a second portion. Other favorites - Gobhi Manchurian (cauliflower), chicken tikka masala, Paneer "Makhan Mar Ke" (our little ones loved this dish), and the desserts! Tried a bit of each: gulab jamun (it was still hot - so good!), kheer (everyone was surprised at how yummy this rice pudding was), kulfi - mango/pistachio ice cream.
Wish we lived in Raleigh, as we'd be regulars at this restaurant! Alas, we are D.C. based so will have to look forward to a much later future visit . If you ARE a local - get yourself to Azitra.
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!
