Amazing food & people! We tried their catering tasting menu and the food was delicious and authentic. Napoleon gave us great recommendations and a huge variety of dishes to taste for a very reasonable tasting fee. He answered all of our questions and also took into consideration any of our personal preferences. We’re excited to work with Lime & Lemon for our event. Definitely must try their chukka, biryani and paneer shaam savera dishes! We absolutely loved both mango and malai kulfi and couldn’t pick our favorite. Best Indian food in NC! ☺️

Cute atmosphere with very attentive service. Started with the mango mint lemonade which was tasty but very syrupy and I specified Tito’s and ended up with aristocrat which I wasn’t too thrilled about. The food was pretty good but lacked a little in flavor as far as what I’m used to with Indian food. We started with the recommended vegetarian options then I had the chicken tikka masala with spinach and cheese naan and my friend had the salmon. We asked two different employees what one of the starters was and got two different answers. All of the staff was very friendly and very attentive. Overall it’s a good place to try out for lunch/ dinner.

When I tell you don't walk run to Lime & Lemons I tell no lies. We are not NC natives just traveling for vacation but this restaurant is on my top list for best Indian cuisine. We went for dinner and from the service, to the drinks, and food presentation to overall taste everything was excellent . We ordered bombay shrimp biryani, two berry cocktails (special recommended by waiter) , Indian sweet mule, shrimp tikka masala, garlic naan, vegetable samosa (no pic because we devoured them on sight) and received complimentary gulab juman. The food and drinks had so much flavor and a true taste of fresh fruit, herbs, and spices . The cute details added to the drinks and ambiance and decor of the restaurant was so nice .

Sat outside on an early October Friday for dinner. Was busy but made a reservation easily online just in case, though it didn't seem necessary because they didn't even check the reservation list. Extremely polite and attentive wait staff, including Anand from Goa, all Indian. We got tandoori chicken (not as red or dry rub as expected, first plate was too salty, second plate offered and was extremely piping hot and beautifully tender) and mango lime paneer curry (very tasty) and garlic naan. All was mild ordered and basically has no spiciness to my taste buds.

Lime and Lemon is a favorite! Food is always delicious, and the service is impeccable. Staff members are very friendly and attentive. Bartender Ashay creates beautiful and perfectly crafted cocktails.

Food was awesome!!! Great Indian food in Durham. I like that since it's new it's very clean. We went on a Sunday and it was sort of busy and they also were fully staffed, so at times it felt like employees were standing around waiting to take orders and every 2 minutes they were coming back to the table asking if we were ready to order. It kind of felt like they were hovering. Nonetheless, the food was great, and the service was great, and they cleared the plates right away and kept our waters full at all times. This location is a little small on the inside.

It is a fantastic place for Indian food. We were visiting so couldn't try a lot of things but we ordered was pretty darn good. A big thumbs up! The atmosphere was lively!

One of the best Indian Restaurants I’ve ever been to. The Lemon & Lime theme is carried throughout the decor, food and drinks. Our Red Hot Margs were top tier. The baby corn app was the perfect amount of spicy. I felt adventurous and picked something random off of the menu and absolutely loved it.

Delicious food! The raita did not have fresh veggies which was very interesting but did not effect the quality. The staff was very attentive and receptive. It is definitely a hot spot to be in the middle of a college town.

Tasty food. Menu is not your typical menu and has plenty of options. Their drink menu also has great variety. My friends liked the goat curries and the dum biriyani. Parking is not easy and there is not a ton of seating so pick your time accordingly.

The food was amazing! We got chicken vindaloo and goat biryani and would definitely recommend them. The mango and strawberry lassi are also delicious and a must get (especially to help with the heat of the food). Our waiter Aliston was amazing, answered our questions since we don’t know much about Indian food, and brought us a yogurt dip to help with the spice when he saw us struggling and refused to let us tip (bring cash to tip because their system wouldn’t let us use card). He also gave us gulab jamun at the end which is the sweet dessert in the container in the picture, absolutely delicious! We will definitely be back to try more of the food and have cash to tip!
