    Very attentive staff. Felt very welcome. Service with appetizers and entrees was quite timely and our waiter was very attentive to our needs. Food was excellent. Great taste and very pleasing in presentation. I would recommend them to anyone who enjoys Indian cuisine as well as to those that may want to try it for the first time. You will not be disappointed.

    Very good place, great atmosphere. I reserved an outside table, but when it started to rain, we were escorted inside with no problem. They proceeded excellent service, waiter was very helpful in deciphering the menu. They even did a sing for my sister's birthday.

    Excellent food. "Medium spicy" was just that -- perfect for me, but maybe not enough if you like it really spicy. I'm sure they will work with you to meet your taste.

    Lime and Lemon was a real treat! Our first time, and the service was great. We reserved inside seating but asked to sit outside because of the nice weather, and were quickly accommodated. Everyone was very attentive and our drinks arrived very quickly, as did our appetizers. The naan platter and the cauliflower were delicious! As were our entrees. Three vegetarians had three different entrees, and loved them all. I highly recommend this excellent restaurant!

    This was our first visit to this restaurant and it was fantastic from the excellent service to the great cocktails and of course the food which was some of the best Indian food I've had in the U.S. I would definitely recommend it to anyone and will be recommending it to my friends and colleagues. We will also be repeat customers without question.

    The staff were all very pleasant and attentive. I got fish, my partner got chicken. Both nicely done. The food overall though didn't wow me but we'll definitely go back to try something different to give it a fair shot. We love Indian food, and since the staff were so nice, we'd look forward to going again.

    This place was recommended to stop at by a local while we were on vacation. My fiancé loves Indian food so I wanted to find a place to stop since we don't have a place near our home. This place didn't disappoint! It was delicious, the service was absolutely amazing and the whole experience was top notch! We added it to the list of must go places when we come back to visit our friends again.

    We went on a busy Sunday... graduation/ Mother's Day. The food we got came out in a reasonable time and was delicious... the Gobi Manchurian and Butter Chicken were especially good. My one small complaint was that it took quite a long time after we finished to get the check. I'd guess about 15-20 minutes. I had to ask for it twice. But I think that was a fluke due to the busy day. Overall, a lovely option for Indian food in Durham.

    The restaurant was packed and the serving team overwhelmed. With it being graduation and mother’s day weekend, every seat was booked with several large parties. The servers were very sweet and apologetic but we were finished eating before i got my second drink. The food was very good. I would go back to try them again hoping they weren’t as busy and overwhelmed.

    Lime & Lemon was great at accommodating my large party--our food came out in a timely fashion, they were pretty good at keeping orders straight and making sure they were delivered, and the food itself was delicious. Great value for price too, since almost everyone ended up taking food home. Would definitely recommend!

    My family went to Lime and Lemon to celebrate my husband's birthday on Ninth St. The drink prices were very reasonable and the food prices were in line with other Indian Restaurants in the area. They had a surprise announcement for his birthday that was a lot of fun! We will go back again

    We were celebrating my wife’s birthday as a family. The waiter did well explaining the menu to my parents who are unfamiliar with Indian cuisine. He was also very friendly and humorous. Aside from the delay getting our waters and drinks ordered at the beginning, the service was timely. The food is excellent, especially the cauliflower appetizer, which was the star dish at our table. We enjoyed the outdoor seating but wish we had some cushioned seats. Overall, this was a great experience and would definitely recommend/return.
