The food is consistently good,
The food is consistently good, portions are plentiful, and dishes can be adjusted to the particular level of heat you that you prefer. Service is fast and friendly. Slightly expensive as lunches go, but well worth it.

Brier Creek Gem
We were first time Diners who've lived in Brier Creek for almost two years. We loved it! The service was attentive and the food was wonderful. We will certainly be back.

The food was very good I would rate it a 5 stars. It's not so hot that it will agree with just about everyone. The variety on the menu was also great and the food met all expectations.

After almost 20 years of marraige
After almost 20 years of marraige my wife and I decided to give Indian food a try for the first time. We absolutely loved the food and service at this restaurant. I was a little worried about the spicyness of Indian food in general and was pleasantly surprised at how the flavors really complimented the spicyness of the food. We loved it and will go again soon.

Great food and lovely restaurant
This restaurant is beautifully decorated with classics like hard wood floors combined with modern light fixtures and art. Food was very good and waiter took my limited knowledge of Indian food and selected a perfect meal for me. Wine list is very nice and hard to choose, but found an excellent bottle of cab for an affordable price.

Great food! Everything is
Great food! Everything is wonderfully flavored!
The waiter is a bit pushy with trying some items ... but we have yet to regret any of his recommendations!

Something for everybody
We dined here recently and my vegetarian daughter, her date, various other relatives, my spouse and I enjoyed the special event feel to the restaurant. She received a very special birthday dessert and the menu was very creative. We enjoyed several appetizers and shared several entrees. The desserts were a hit----in house created frozen desserts ! We have been coming here over a period of years and Azitra never disappoints.

Great Food, Awkward Ambiance
The food at Azitra is fabulous, but the ambiance is a strange. When we were there on a Friday night, there was hardly anyone else there. When we arrived, it was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop... then when they did play music, it was electronic. No melody and, frankly, a style of music that would make you more nervous than soothed and satisfied. I believe they've created a great menu here. They have great service. But a bit of work on the atmosphere could bring more people back.

We were visiting a friend
We were visiting a friend who just moved to Raleigh and picked Azitra as we all love Indian food. I am from Phila and have had Indian food in NYC, Phila and London and Azitra honestly has to be one of the best I ever had. I don't even usually write reviews for OT but I couldn't resist a nod to this great restaurant. The grilled chicken appetizer was off the charts. The sauces on the samosas and grilled asst appetizer plate were amazing. We would definitely and will definitely be back!

Ladies' birthday celebration
All 5 of us really enjoyed our luncheon selections, dipping our naan in each other's sauces for a taste. Portions were generous, plates were attractively presented, many good menu choices. The special birthday sundae was greatly appreciated.

Azitra has it all. Good food, Excellent service, Great prices. Excellent Parking.
Once you dine here....You will come back again and again. We ordered, Lamb Vindoloo, Salmon and a veggie entree. All outstanding.

I took three teenagers out for dinner and they all enjoyed their dinner very much.

Great food good service
Other reviewers have already said the same. The food here was very good. We had the lamb vindaloo which was quite good with plenty of spice and heat in the "standard" order.
The waitstaff let you know to take your time but had a tendency to linger making you feel a little rushed. I did not get the feeling that it was intentional.
My wife asked our waiter for suggestions and he did not seem to know how to handle that. He was very polite and offered to fix anything for us any way that we wanted but he was not able to help us with a choice.

The service was excellent and the food was delicious. They surprised my husband with a birthday dessert without me requesting it.

Anitra at Brier Creek
Anitra is the perfect place to have a romantic dinner and eat some great Indian food! The atmosphere is warm and relaxing and the service is excellent. Our server recommended two delicious dishes for us: crab masala and chicken kozhambu. I highly recommend Azitra to couples who want a nice relatively inexpensive evening out.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quiet, nice wine list
They have a beef chili appetizer than I never see on the menu but is really excellent. The waiter was only to happy to head off menu with us to create interesting mixtures of flavors. I ended up with a spicy salmon curry with coconut as a sweetener.

Given good advice.
I recently went to Azitra on a Friday night with a friend. When I ordered one of the vegetarian entrees the waiter said that he was going to advise against it. He said that it was soon to be removed from the menu. When I asked for a suggestion, he said that he would tell the chef what to make me. I never knew the name of it, but it was fantastic. My companion ordered a salmon dish that was superb. My only suggestion would be to broaden the list of wines by the glass.

My first experience at an Indian Restaurant and it was a welcomed surprise. The food was delicious, the service was great, and the were very accommodating of guests request. Will be dining here again!

Tasty food, colorful atmosphere
Azitra is a striking restaurant with traditional and contemporary Indian food. Our party of three chose three dinners to share: eggplant, plus two contemporary seafood dishes, plus garlic nan. All dinners are served with rice. We enjoyed beautiful mixed drinks, the snake charmer and ginger martini were favorites. Small taste of homemade ice cream to finish. We dined early so the restUrNt was not full yet. It might be noisier when it's full but I suspect in a lively way. There's also a patio for outdoor dining. We had a lovely evening!

Creative and Delicious Indian menu
While I'm not sure I'd say I was in nirvana, I was very pleased with the meal we had at Azitra. Tried and true Indian dining favorites are on the menu, but they also had a number of less traditional dishes which I appreciated seeing. My goat dish was fantastic. I also thought we had some of the best Naan I've had in a long time.
We ate lunch there, so not sure about the noise level on a busy night.

Dinner was great but the only complaint is the service is slow at times.

Loud but really good food.
The food was excellent. The restaurant was really, really loud. Not a date night restaurant, unless you like shouting at your date.
They waiter was a little hard to understand, but that could be because it was so loud. They initially got our order wrong, but immediately and very graciously fixed it.
I would highly recommend this place for great Indian food.

Love this place!
The food is excellent, I love the ambience. Def a winner.

Excellent Indian cusine
The ambience was pleasurable like the food and the service was quick on a Saturday evening at 7pm. We had the Chat of the Day to start, which was a reproduction of an Indian street food. It was tasty and palette cleansing, and prepared our senses for the entrees. We had the Kofta Anarkali, which is a vegetable-based dish that was beautifully presented and was delicious. We also had the Chicken Kozhambu, which had the level of spices and heat that I appreciated and was excellent. The Peshwari Naan bread was fresh, soft, and tasty. We will return to try the other well described meals on the menu.
