Where should you eat in the Cary-Apex area?

There is lots of diversity in the Triangle, which then means there are several diverse restaurants to choose from. Today, I will be setting out a guide on some recommended restaurants to try out in the Triangle from students at Green Level High School.

Di Fara Pizza Tavern

Starting off, Di Fara is well known for their New York style pizza. Di Fara offers a variety of appetizers and New York style pies that have gotten them high star reviews across all platforms. Their pizza is very exclusive and one of a kind in North Carolina with loads of customers each night. If you ever plan on visiting, I would recommend the regular pie and garlic knots, since they are to die for!

Persis Indian Grill

If you are looking for classic Indian food, Persis Indian Grill is an amazing option. They offer a wide variety of Indian dishes, including several vegetarian options. Their signature dish is dum biryani which is full of flavor and a must try. On top of that, their highly raved buffet opens up every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

So Hot Hotpot

So Hot Hotpot is a restaurant which serves Chinese hot pot: a traditional and flavorful broth that is brought to a boil and raw ingredients are added to be cooked. This restaurant is a great interactive experience that provides a wide variety of choices to choose from. 


This restaurant offers Mexican street food and tequila. Not only that, but their restaurant’s atmosphere has great vibes and is decorated very festively, adding a special touch to the experience. Overall, their food is very flavorful and has received high reviews praising their food, service, and atmosphere.


No.1 Pho Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine

As an authentic Vietnamese restaurant, No.1 Pho provides high quality food that is true to the owner’s New York City cuisine. The staff is very friendly and the food is worth the wait. If you ever are looking for some Vietnamese cuisine make sure to try out this restaurant!

Sultan’s Deli

This Mediterranean restaurant is a great hidden gem that offers very affordable prices. If you plan on visiting I would recommend their hummus and pita, gyros, chicken kebab, and Mediterranean Platter. They also have great service and their food tastes amazing.

This downtown pub is original to Cary, NC and offers an American menu and bar. Several reviewers recommend their burgers and their fish and chips, and overall describe the food as tasting amazing. This restaurant has a casual atmosphere and is a great option for some classic American food!
