Two ex-colleagues, who hadn't met for years had a lot to talk about. The wait staff were exemplary in their patience and gentle prodding. The food didn't disappoint (I'd been there multiple times before), the drinks selection is outstanding as ever. Their menu has not only typical indian fare but also a large number of unusual dishes; crab masala and mutton soup to name but two. The octopus tadka was sublime as was the makhmali lamb.

I’ve eaten here at least 20 times. I’m not sure if this is a very new wait staff, and if there are different chefs also. Food was over cooked and it took quite a bit of time to receive drinks, as the servers were not visiting our table with any frequency.

Azitra is a great place. The wait staff has always been friendly and accommodating.
The service is prompt.

Their outdoor seating can be a little noisy due to proximity to the main road for the shopping area they're located in but that's really my only complaint and it's a minor one.

This is my first time dining at an Indian Restaurant and it was the best!The waiter was incredibly helpful in helping my wife and I navigate the menu and offer suggestions to find the best authentic options for us. He even asked about food allergies and sensitivity. They have many gluten free options btw. I instructed the waiter that I did not like spicy food and he helped educated me on what spicy was at a true authentic meal and I appreciated that info. There's quite the difference between American spicy and Indian spicy. Indian spicy is flavorful and good and not overbearing. American spicy is just hot and uncomfortable to me. We both ordered lamb dishes (different ones) and they were delicious. We tried each others and the waiter actually picked the best dishes for us each as I liked mine more and she liked hers more. He even directed us towards his favorite appetizer, the tawa scallops. They were melt in your mouth good and the best I've ever had. My wife had the Lamb Kozhambu and I had the Lamb Shank. Both were so flavorful and so tender. My wife added broccoli to her dish and it was cooked perfectly. I have to say I was nervous at first and put at ease by the waiter and pleasantly surprised after my dining experience. We will certainly go back!

I dream about this place whenever I’m away. You will not be disappointed, great wine selection, great service and people, nice ambience.

Addicted to the chicken tikka masala, can never order anything else and I’ve tried.

This was a repeat visit, our food was all cooked to perfection, the sauces this restaurant uses are one of a kind. The staff are very informed as to how every dish is made and they are always coming up with something new and have great recommendations. This is truly a must try, We sat outside for the first time and was very nice, quiet and tables were spaced nicely for privacy.

We hadn’t been to Azitra for probably 2 years and were missing the brunch. The food quality has stayed the same but the service has gone down.

Food is top notch, extremely delicious and fresh. The service however is just okay. The waiters and host were not very welcoming or expressive or even reactive to any of our small chit chat/banter. No one was mean or rude at all just kind of blah.

That being said we will definitely be back more often because the food and ambiance are fantastic.

Poor service. Brought appetizers and then we had to wait for plates and then silverware. No apology. They forgot our drinks and then didn’t apologize.

Good food, great ambiance. The wine list was very extensive with lots of options. The service is always good been there about ten times. It is a little pricey but the ambiance sets it apart from other Indian restaurants I’ve been to in the Raleigh area.

We enjoyed our meal at Azitra. We felt that it took a bit long before the server returned to take our order and also we waited quite awhile for the server to pick up our payment.

We loved the patio dining. Due to a landscaped, high, earth "wall", you would never know that a busy street was right beside their patio. And most importantly, the food was excellent!!

Azitra is probably the best vegetarian friendly restaurant in the Triangle. The Kofta Anarkali is one of those dishes that makes you aware of flavors that are not always on our radar.

Very nice restaurant which we frequent pretty often. The sauces used in their entrees are very tasty. Thr samosas are not as good as. Other restaurants and their Nan is also 2nd rate. For special occasions, the restaurant does a nice job of creating the special ambiance - for us it was a nice piece of cake with garnish.
