Best

My wife and I celebrated our 25th Anniversary at the Brier Creek location. All I can say is it was wonderful. We highly recommend.

Worst

I have eaten at many many Indian restaurants and Azitra is not one of the best that is for sure. The food is very inconsistent. One night you order the Chicken Tikka Masala mild...

HORRIBLE AND RUDE SERVICE 6/4/2011

Food is average and highly overpriced. Employees are rude . JUST HORRIBLE !!!!!! Hate this place. more

Not a fan of Indian food until now 6/1/2011

This resturant changed my opinion of indian food completely. My wife and I ate there yesterday and the food was superb. We ordered the shrimp and veg curry, azitra mixed grill and a desert that had carrot pudding, mango ice cream and something else. The shrimp was cooked perfect and the chicken in the mixed grill was as tender as I have ever had. The flavors along with the aroma coming off the food put me into sensory overload. This is now one of our favorite places to eat in Raleigh and we will definately be going back many more times. more

Love it, been customer for years 5/23/2010

We absolutely love the food here. We used to live in DC and had our pick of Indian places. Azitra is the only place in the triangle that satisfies our craving for Indian food. The food is great, the portions generous, the staff pleasant. I'm not sure what the issue was that the two bad reviewers had were - but the only time we had an issue with the food - a quiet word to the server brought an immediate apology by the owner who took care of the issue personally. It is one of the few places in Raleigh that I've been impressed with since coming back from DC. Pros: awesome food, great service more

Great Indian Fare 5/12/2010

This is a really great place for Indian food. The Kucumber salad is really good--love the flavor and crunch. Their dishes are unique in flavor and style (the dishes are high on one side). We have always received excellent and thoughtful service there. Been there at least 10 times and will continue. Pros: Unique dishes, Pasharwri Nan, Kumcumber salad, mixed drinks Cons: Some Indian food I love not available more

Overpriced. House Salad pathetic 4/14/2010

I couldn't see my food it was so dark. Probably for good reason. They undercooked my vegetables (potatoes were hard in the middle and carrots were crunchy) that came with the shrimp and vegetable curry dish. The house salad was a joke and the ""house dressing"" was from a jar. The chicken tikka sauce came out cold. It is way overpriced for what you get. Stay away. Pros: No wait - place was empty Cons: Overpriced. House Salad pathetic more

Small portions 12/28/2009

My wife and I were looking forward to dining at Azitra. What a letdown. The portions were small and there was very little chicken in my Chicken Tikka Masala. Sauce was not tasty and very little spice. My wife's dish was not much better. We asked for bread but was told it would cost extra. Decor and patio are nice but there are better Indian restaurants in Raleigh. Don't waste your time on this one. Pros: Fair Service Cons: Everything is extra more

Great Indian fare! 11/6/2009

Great food and drink menu. Pros: Best Indian I have eaten since I lived in NYC Cons: Too far from my house. Open one Downtown or North Raleigh more

Azitra: our favorite restaraunt in the Triangle 10/30/2009

We really love going to Azitra. We go there quite often and it never fails our expectations. Azitra has a way of relaxing you and it is just so enjoyable. Their food IS consistently good and their service is fantastic. The manager is really cool too and has talked to us on numerous occassions about the food and the different ingredients they use to make their dishes so wonderful. Its overall just a wonderful place to dine!! Pros: amazing food, great service and wonderful ambiance more

Some amazingly good dishes 8/10/2009

Wonderful food, ambience, staff. One of our favorites in the Triangle. more

First time eating Indian 5/11/2009

Their food is kind of expensive but the food is to die for!!!!This is an excellent place to go if you want a nice elegant setting with a GREAT meal. Pros: Staff, setting, food, location, etc. Cons: price more

Excellent Indian Restaurant! 5/2/2009

My husband and I have been going to Azitra for a couple of years now. It is always consistently good and the service is amazing. The decor is very relaxing and beautiful making for great ambiance. We love their chicken tikka masala, palak paneer, garlic nann, and subz samosas. My husband loves the lamb vindaloo and chicken curry as well. They have wonderful cocktails. My favorite is the white sangria, delicious! We really love Indian food and eat it quite often so we must say Azitra is hands down one, if not the best place in the Triangle. Pros: Service is amazing, decor/ambiance, food is delicious more

Very expensive, inconsistent and very small portions 11/5/2008

I have eaten at many many Indian restaurants and Azitra is not one of the best that is for sure. The food is very inconsistent. One night you order the Chicken Tikka Masala mild and it comes out blazing hot and other times you order it Medium and it is flavorless and watered down. For the price of the cuisine the food should be top quality and consistent. Especially main stay menu items like Murgh Mahkni and Chicken Tikka Masala. I guess they are trying to recoup for the fancy interior and all the money spent on the bar. The best butter chicken in the Triangle was Royal India Express off of Glenwood in Raleigh. Then one day they just changed the recipe and it was inedible I could not believe it. Their butter chicken was so addictive and delicious and then one day new cook and different recipe obviously from an entirely different region of India. Too bad, I bet they lost a lot of business. Anyway the point is it is very hard to find consistency at any of the Indian restaurants in NC. Pros: Food is sometimes good Cons: Small portions, Too expensive, inconsistent more

Great food, chic and trendy decor and music, to boot! 8/22/2008

Excellent Indian food and a trendy, urban atmosphere (love the bar area with its glass tiles!). A bit pricey, but the food is always outstanding. Mostly traditional Indian fare, served with a bit of NY urban style. This is not your typical cozy Indian restaurant, to be sure. We've always had excellent service, whether we come with our kids or to get away from them for the night. Nice drinks available, if you want to try something different (martinis and other mixed drinks). A bit pricey, so not our weekly restaurant, but I've never felt I overpaid for the quality I received. We all loved the live sitar music, although if you sit too close, it can be difficult to carry on a conversation. I'd recommend reservations for peak times or large parties - it can get pretty busy at dinnertime on the weekends. Pros: Food, decor, ambiance Cons: Price more

I really enjoy this restaurant 6/19/2008

I've been to Azitra twice, once for lunch and once for dinner, and I can't wait to go back. For lunch I ordered lamb with medium-hot spice and was very pleased with my dish. For dinner I had a different lamb dish and it wasn't as spicy as it had been at lunch, but my husband's scallop dish was EXTREMELY spicy (luckily, we like spice, I saw it as a personal challenge to help him finish). The decor of the restaurant is very modern and makes for a great date spot. Our service was fine. One minor drawback would be the live music, we were seated right next to the sitar player and it was a little too loud to be very enjoyable. Overall I would recommend this restaurant, particularly for lunch but for a nice dinner as well. Pros: great decor, prompt service, good food Cons: very loud sitar player during dinner service more

My Favorite place for lunch 6/2/2008

I absolutely love going to Azitra for lunch. It's a much better deal than at dinner as they include the naan as well as soup or salad. The portions are smaller but so is the price. I've read complaints about the consistency of the food and spice level but to me that just means that they prepare the food fresh. I am a regular and am in at least once every week,. I love that they never have the same combination of vegetables and they are rarely cut the same, you know they are using fresh ingredients. They never over cook the vegetables, fresh and crispy every time. The spice level can be inconsistent but they are very nice about making it right, just becareful of complaining that Indian Hot isn't hot enough, they'll try to knock your socks off. Pros: Food, Food, Food Cons: Pricey for dinner more

beautiful patio, great food 5/4/2008

My husband and I tried Azitra last night for the first time. I had driven by several times before and noticed their patio area, and we ate outside in the mild spring weather. I have actually never eaten Indian before, so I can't attest to the authenticity, but I was really pleased with the food. We both enjoyed our meals immensely. The prices are higher than, say Chili's, but aren't too expensive. The only surprise on the bill was the $4 charge for the bread, which we assumed was complimentary when our waiter asked if we would like some. The fountain and trees on the patio make you forget you are adjacent to a road (you can't even see it.) We will definately be going back. Pros: patio, food more

Nothing Special 2/21/2008

I guess the good news is how much money they spent on the interior. Nice interior average Indian food. The food is inconsistent. I've had ""medium"" that was terribly hot and ""medium"" that had no flavor. Portion sizes are truly a single portion you won't have any leftovers, it's smaller portions than most Indian places I've been to. On last attempt some of the most basic Indian dishes, Chicken tikki marsala had little flavor. Couldn't tell if the ingredients were old or what the problem was. At these prices it's not worth a fourth try. I love Indian food unfortunately this isn't the place to get it. Pros: Interior Cons: Food consistency and flavor more

Inconsistent 2/6/2008

I don't know why I continue to give Azitra a try. The food is always inconsistent. Is it because they have different chef cooking on different days? 1 out of 5 times I go there, the food is really good. But the other 4 times have been awful. I always order Goan Chicken Curry. I ordered that today for lunch and it tasted like water. There was no taste and I had asked for level 4 spicy. It came out very bland and tasted like water. I don't think I will be going back to Azitra. I have had way too many bad experiences to go back. more

Nice Decor, Intimate place for date night 1/11/2008

For those people who said the food was bland and not flavorful, they are sadly mistaken. Azitra is a bit amercanized but, the food is still somewhat spicy. I suggest if you are not American and you want traditional Indian food, either request a special dish from the Chef or make your food at home. The service is great along with the fabulous wine selection. Some of the appetizers are small in portion and overpriced but, you get plenty of food otherwise. Pros: Ambience, Service, Fast Service more
