Wonderful food as always! We celebrated a birthday, and the server surprised us by bringing out a delicious dessert.
A few people in our group also had some dietary restrictions/requests, and the restaurant was very accommodating.
Can’t wait to go back!

We always love eating at Azitra. The staff is wonderful and takes great care of us as soon as we walk in the door. My daughter was home for the Easter holiday with her boyfriend and wanted our family to go because her boyfriend loves food of all ethnicities. He was impressed as we knew he would be!

We'd heard good things and read the reviews; also one of us is vegan. The menu is not huge (a good thing) and has novel items on it. Example: Shiitake, Leek Tikkis. We were very pleasantly surprised by the wine list, which is extensive with some very well known vintages and labels. Thoroughly recommended.

Great Experience! The manager was attentive, checking in to ensure that we were being served well. The food was authentic with the right flavoring of spices that makes Indian food the gem that it is in any culinary repertoire.

we drive 2 + 1/2 hrs. each way JUST to dine there. Of course, we stay overnight near by.
Lamb Saag is not on the menu; but, they always create the dish especially for me. Husband enjoys the lamb shank...a huge portion of meat. It's the only Indian restaurant that does it perfectly. Service is impeccable! You wait for nothing...wine keeps getting poured when you least expect that service. Wine Spectator's awards line the entrance..since 2002.

One of the best kept secrets in Raleigh. The food is off the chart. I would encourage those who say they don’t like Indian cuisine to give Azitra a try as they will be pleasantly surprised.

Azitra also is able to customize to taste. Do you like more spicy and all vegetable or would you like beef? Try the Tandoori Tenderloin. Scallops are a smaller portion and fantastic.

The favorite for picky eaters is the Chicken Tika Masala.

Naan sampler for those not sure what bread to go with but my personal favorite is garlic naan.

For a cocktail, try Mumbai Rain. A sweet rum-based concoction.

Prices are higher than some restaurants but well worth it.

Terribly disappointing. We had so looked forward to our dinner after having several great meals here a few years ago. Primary problem was service, but food did not live up to expectations either. One of my pet peeves in fine dining establishments is for the wait staff to bring food to the table, announce the name of the dish, and then wait for the guests to tell him/ her whose plate it is! This is inexcusable especially when the waiter took the time to review each person's order. Here our waiter did not deliver the food, but rather sent someone else who acted as though we we're inconveniencing him when we did not immediately know whose meal was whose just based upon a mumbeled name of the entree. Then to top it off, the chicken and salmon were over cooked and the lamb vindaloo was all sauce and hardly had any meat. Overall a very unpleasant experience.

Me and my wife made reservations for valentines night. We were seated upon arrival. The waitress didn’t speak English very well, so there was a little trouble trying to explain exactly what we wanted. The food was too spicy after the waitress told us it was very mild. The waitress was not too attentive to our drinks and I had to ask for a refill. The lighting could have been a little dimmer. Another suggestion would be to play some jazz music while people are eating. Jazz music compliments the look of the restaurant. The conversations were so loud it sounded like I was in a high school cafeteria. The lamb chops were delicious.

Wife and I went to Azitra for Valentines Day. It was our 2nd time there. It is a great atmosphere and even better food and service. All the staff wore red for the holiday and despite it being busier than our previous time, the service and food were still perfect! The seared scallops and crab tak a tak appetizers were the best apps I have had possibly ever. The cocktails were amazing and the main course was flawless. Cannot recommend enough!

Everything was fine. Food and service especially. The noise level where we were seated was too high. We were up against a wall sandwiched between two very loud groups. The next time we go we’ll ask for a table in a more open spot. But we will definitely return.

We enjoyed our date night at Azitra. The food was fabulous as always. There was clearly an issue in the kitchen on the evening we were there as our food arrived almost an hour after we were seated. The manager was very graciously and apologized to us for the wait without us saying anything and he gave us two complimentary glasses of the wine we were drinking. We thought that they handled the situation very well and appreciated their customer service to keep us happy.

Been here several times. Always love the food. Yes it is a little pricey, but it is worth it. Best Indian food I have found yet in the triangle.

So the service is slow and designed for a good solid sit down meal. This is definitely not a fast food restaurant. This is a place to go when you want to sit down for a full meal and not eat and run.

Since I'm dairy free as well as gluten free, I have yet to experience any of their paneer but my wife is hooked. I love their Rogan josh and any of their goat dishes.

The staff here is excellent.

The only negative I have was no GF deserts except ice cream.

This is the best Indian restaurant I've been to in Raleigh (and I've been to many in London). They have excellent traditional dishes as well as more modern Indian fusion. Interesting hand crafted cocktails. Variety of non-spicy dishes for those who need that. ~$100 for 3 people with 1 cocktail, 3 appetizers, 3 main dishes + plenty of rice.

My fiancée and I visited Azitra with a family friend for a nice meal. The food at Azitra is always good, however one of our servers (we had 5 different people) gave us our food while his cell phone was ringing loudly in his pocket. Another server was very rude and seemed not well trained. Later in the evening it became very noisy because it is a popular spot to dine.

Overall the restaurant is lovely, the food is excellent, but the service is a mixed bag.
