We went there before going to DPAC for a play. Nice atmosphere, we arrived about 5:30 and were probably first customers so got lots of attention. Staff was excellent, courteous and made good recommendations. Food was exceptional and some of the best Indian we have had in area and also fairly priced. I think we ordered the Mango chicken, Hyderbadi Chicken Dum Biryani, garlic naan, and shrimp 65 appetizer (and a few Old Fashions). Everything was tasty and close I’d not identical to food while I was in India. Kevin was attentive but not overbearing.

It’s my husband’s birthday today and we had been craving Indian food. So I made a reservation and we got this wonderful surprise. Thanks team Lime & Lemon for making our meal special. Also, the food is amazing. We ordered the tandoori platter and goat chettinad.

Cozy spot with tasty Indian food and nothing fancy. Fast service, make sure to reserve a table ! Gobi Manchurian was perfect not too saucy. We tried Panner Chukka which was fab and was immediately transported to south india for its burst of flavors ! Cheese + Spinach naan was yum and we finished with orange delight for desert which was zingy finish for a nice evening.

This is a very fine-dine sort of a place. Perfect for families with ample amounts of room to accomodate your kids and family(s). The food is absolutely delicious as well. Seriously its a must-to-go and eating place, so so so much variety under one roof. Every item is so yummy and authentic. So all in all a 5 out of 5 for this one. Keep it up Lime & Lemon!

The wife and I enjoyed our 1st time dinning here today and it was absoutly delicious! Our server was Sadananth and he was most excellent with both his recommendations and service. We will certainly be back soon, thank you for a wonderful meal served in a beautiful and pleasant atmosphere! -David & Gail

Just had an absolutely amazing meal at Lime and Lemon in Raleigh. Edwin was our server and he could not have been more helpful, friendly or attentive. The restaurant is clean and modern, and has a great atmosphere. Prices were reasonable and the food was super. I'm not an expert on Indian food but there were a couple features to the dishes that were a tiny bit different from the norm and the flavors absolutely worked. Huge thumbs up on this place.

This is one of the best Indian restaurants I've been to! Food is delicious, deserts are so tasty and flavorlful. My only complaint is that even a mild spicy food is extremely spicy, which I didn't like, but overall it's worth to check this place. My suggestion to owners is to make your mildest spicy food not too spicy so that kids (and adults) can eat it.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and Durham location. Please be aware that you have to street park or find slot in one of the complexes around. Since it was a week night finding parking was easy. We were promptly seated in a comfortable booth! The restaurant ambience including bar is tastefully done. We ordered paneer tikka tandoori (not served on a sizzler), gobi manchurian, mango lime paneer, tandoori roti, and garlic naan! Everything tasted authentic and the flavors were on point. The mango paneer was not very creamy and definitely worth a try. Tandoori roti was one of the best I have had. The highlight was complimentary side of chutneys, reminded me of restaurants in India. Cucumber cooler was refreshing and light on sugar, something I look for in non alcoholic drinks. We tried orange delight for dessert. It is an off menu item but hugely popular based on reviews. We loved the experience of a balanced dessert, not overtly sweet, and with lovely citrus flavors. Special note for the management. During check out they found out that it was husband’s birthday. They gave us a discount and told if they knew before they would have brought the complimentary dessert! We were pleased with the service, food, and ambience. Definitely recommend this place if you are a fan of Indian food.

After a long time, we had great Indian food. Really authentic and tasty. Mr. Napoleon made the entire experience awesome. As this was our first visit, he helped recommend the best food which all of us liked. Highly recommended, and would definitely go again.

Food is really good here and so are the people. Nevil and Paul served us today and the service was top class. They were very kind and polite. They were very patient with our toddler and offered him Mango Lassi(no charge and delicious) and lollipops. Coming to food.... We ordered Mango Lime Paneer, Chilli Corn, Egg Kothu Paratha, Spinach Naan, Basil Naan, Plain Dosa and drinks... The food was super delicious. We were so full that we decided to come back to order and try more things we wanted to try. Star of the show was the dessert. We got Orange Delight which is off-menu and watermelon kulfi. Loved it. Will come back again for sure and will recommend it to any one who likes or wants to try Indian food.

Since we moved down to Raleigh from NJ few years back, anytime we want to eat Indian food we always head to Cary/Morrisville area and tried several Indian restaurants. Honestly we concluded there was no good tasting Indian food around here. Recently, Lime & Lemon completely changed that opinion! Few non-Indian friends wanted to try Indian food and one of them picked Lime & Lemon after reading reviews. As a fairly large group we ordered several dishes, a mix of south & North Indian entrees - all I can tell is Lime & Lemon got one of the best Indian cooks!

This place was amazing. The environment is crisp and clean, and modest. The people working here are very nice and try as hard as they can be to be accommodating even though they are so very busy. We came in without a reservation and waited an hour to finally be seated, but the wait was well worth it. The food was absolutely delicious and the portion sizes were huge, leaving leftovers for two more meals after the initial meal. And nothing tasted like it was leftovers when we had it again. So great, I definitely recommend.

Food is great; recently had a lunch there with a few friends. The wait time is reasonable and the staff is capable of handling large groups. Would love to be back! I loved their sampling from the grill and all the sides that come with dosas!

Came for the first time and had an amazing experience. Bar tender Abi was the man. Had the best old fashion I’ve ever had. He used all fresh ingredients instead of syrups. Order two dishes and both the wife and I loved it. Will definitely be back.
