Raaga is not a run-of-the-mill Indian restaurant. Where else do you find dishes like goan scallops balchao, lamb shank maharaja, malabar machee (fish), or gobi musslam?

Went to Azitra last night. Our second time there. First for dinner. Menu was good. Lots of veggies, lamb, goat, chicken. Something for everyone. It is close to home and we were off to see a movie. The service could have been better but it is nice that it has a full bar and good wine list. Next time we get a sitter we will try some place new. Since we had a new sitter I didnt want to venture far from home.

We've been to Swad Indian Cuisine on Strickland twice in the past few months. The first time, I was on the fence.

The 2nd time will be the last time. The buffet looked horrid; it had all obviously been sitting quite a while. We ordered off the menu but neither of us finished our entrée. It just wasn't good. My SO found hair in his food and they took off 10%. And then they wanted to argue about whether it was a hair. Whatever it was, it didn't belong in the food.

I asked for water and they brought me a glass of water (likely tap) with no ice. I had to ask for ice.

The service was terrible too.

Taj Mahal on Capital is the one I always went to when I lived in the area. There might be fancier places, but that business has been opened for a very long time. Their food is excellent.

I have tried pretty much ALL Indian restaurants in the triangle and my vote is to: "Sai Krishna Bhavan". It is the BEST. It is close to authentic Indian and all my co-workers LOVE it - it is a purely Veg. however

Glad to hear. I always wondered why they didn't move out of MiniCity.

Yeah, not a fan of that area, they've definitely upgraded the location, and maybe they will find more success since they are no longer competing directly with Royal India right down the road on Capital (which has always been great).

Only problem with the new Taj Mahal is they don't seem to have a buffet (or at least did not when I visited). I really hope they are planning to bring it back, the diversity of sampling different dishes is kind of the point, for me. Not every cuisine type is as well suited to a buffet as Indian.

Shame about the buffet. I love Indian food, but prefer buffets. There are many dishes that I like, but not enough to eat them own their own. Many of the chickpeas and veggie dishes are much better served alongside other veggie dishes.
