    We were ignored and they took forever to bring our order. Every time we needed something we had to search for customer service reps. They never provided serving spoons to dish out our food from the bowls. Nothing exceptional and the prices for all food items were insane! They need to work on customer service skills & stop raising food prices. Terrible experience for the bill I paid.

    We came to celebrate a graduation, party of 5. Quick seating, excellent service at beginning of meal. Had some minor issues with menu items having changed from previous visits, these were handled relatively quickly, but we were still charged for original item and replacement. Great food, fantastic sauces. Definitely less protein in the dishes than from previous visits (4 veggie balls in $19 vegetarian dish, 4 shrimp in $26 butter shrimp dish; in past visits there were twice as many). I love that everything is served family style, so we could share dishes. Previously, each dish had enough food for 2 with leftovers, but we only had sauce left on this visit. Got talked into a glass of champagne "for Mother's Day" which cost an undisclosed $25 (!!!) by the bartender who delivered our drinks. My fault, I understand upselling and should have asked, but jeez. Made me feel taken advantage of when we got the bill. Overall, this is a good place to visit for really tasty food, just be aware of pricing and make sure you review the menu carefully so you get what you're expecting.

    Solid Indian Fare in Cary--good portion sizes for the price and above average service for the post-pandemic industry. Would definitely return next time I'm craving some Lamb Vindaloo.

    Nazara is consistently a favorite restaurant. The food is always good, but staff like Manni (sp?) make it exceptional. The recommendations that he gave us just made our rare evening out truly delightful!

    Food did not disappoint. By far the best Indian restaurant in the Cary Morrisville area. Very busy and service seemed to be a little slow but we understand that the labor situation with Covid is not easy. Great cocktails and got a slice of free birthday cake. Overall, a great dinner.

    Prices are pretty high for the portion sizes. Ordered the salmon tikka and there were only four pieces approx the size of 1x1 inch cubes. $6 a cube of salmon… We order the fried okra appetizer and chicken wings and the former was good but nothing amazing and the wings were not worth getting again. For entrees, we ordered the chicken tikka masala and chicken daniawale and the daniawale was really good, unfortunately, one of my bites into the chicken pieces was cartilage which should never happen and I’ve had better chicken tikka masala. Portions sizes were again not on par with pricing and other Indian restaurants in the area. We ordered a variety of breads and the chili garlic was 5 stars. It def has a kick and will start to make your mouth burn after a few bites but if you can handle it, it’s worth it. The atmosphere has the potential to be nice but they have two separate dining areas: one by the bar and the other in a larger corridor type setup. The bar area looks clean and spotless and classy. The area we were in had their entire to-go supplies on the buffet table and further down all their bottles or wine and empty equipment boxes ready to be trashed. It was underwhelming especially since we had heard very good things.

    Chicken ticka masala was good. Chicken byrani was not good. Waiter rushed service and told me that I was in rural Cary and that they did not have honey here. He also told me friend and I to get out they were closing rudely. Not impressed.
