    The food is consistently delicious. Their menu is so varied, the service is wonderful, and the restaurant and bathrooms are super clean. Our party had a severe food allergy that was successfully and happily accommodated. We’ll definitely go back!

    This restaurant is in regular rotation for Friday night - "adult family dinner" because it is walking-distance from home, the service is good, and most importantly the food is good and there are many choices for people with food allergies. If you want to go on a Friday night around 6pm, lock down a reservation a day in advance, don't wait until Friday morning. There are two sections and bar seating. One section is for families with young children. The other section is for adults, or adults with very well-behaved children. The southern Indian offerings like dosa and idli are pure comfort food. The vegetable pakoda and the chicken chukka are wonderful appetizers.

    Aroma was wonderful even as we approached the restaurant! Try the yummy cauliflower and baby corn appetizers. Lots of delicious entrees. The house made orange ice cream served beautifully presented, quartered in a hollowed out orange rind, is a perfect cooling finish to the palate after the spicy Indian food!

    Absolutely delicious dinner in a lovely space. There were plenty of options for both vegetarians and carnivores, and the level of heat and spice were customized to our tastes. All the sauces and dishses were fresh and flavorful, and the service was polite and attentive. Have to say, since there are several of these popular restaurants around the Triangle, our expectations were measured going in, but we came away big fans, eager to try the Lime and Lemon in Durham as well.

    Absolutely loved Lime and Lemon, one of the best dinner outings I’ve had in a long time. The service and staff were so attentive and accommodating. Our server even brought me a mango shot , to help neutralize the heat of the chicken Tika Masala…how cool is that? Food was amazing and the atmosphere was beautiful and fun. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

    Food is amazing, if it is your first time you just need to ask about quantities as we had plenty of food that we barely ate half of it. The service is also really good, the server helped us to navigate through the long menu.

    We have been frequent customers of Lime and Lemon for years - first Durham, then Raleigh and Chapel Hill. Love their food. Yesterday, we took our daughter there for her birthday, and they brought her a special dessert with a sweet message written on the plate. We highly recommend them - great drinks, food and service. Keep it up!

    Lime and Lemon is the best Indian restaurant I’ve ever eaten at and is in the top three restaurants of any kind that I’ve ever eaten at. It is consistently excellent (at least six dining experiences at Lime and Lemon). The dishes always come to the table hot from the kitchen and the cocktail selection is unique and delicious. The staff are always friendly and very helpful. My husband and I love this restaurant!

    Best Indian food in Raleigh. Extensive menu. Everything well prepared at all spice levels. Specially cocktails are a must and equally good mock tails. A place we keep returning to with family and friends old and new. It never disappoints.

    The entire evening was lovely start to finish! Our server, Varun, along with the rest of the staff was incredible. So polite & especially engaging with our 3 year old. We had a great time!! Food was good, atmosphere good - it's a great place to celebrate something, or just have a really nice meal. Drinks (non-alcoholic) were on point (Mango lassi, Strawberry lassi, and Jal Jeera). We will definitely be back!

    The food is excellent but the parking situation is dire - what looks like the Lime & Lemon parking lot is actually the Zaxby’s (next door) lot! The restaurant is right in the heart of NC State campus so parking is a problem- I’ll probably go to their Chapel Hill or Durham location next time because the food is great! 👍🏼
