Suman's has moved to Main St in Durham across from Brightleaf Square and 
is now a sit-down restaurant.  I've heard good things about it, but 
haven't been there myself.  There are several good Indian places in 
Chapel Hill (East Franklin St) and Raleigh (India Mahal on Hillsborough 
St, mentioned further down the list) as well.

A Raleigh tradition, but too expensive for me as a grad student.

Govinda's has closed.  It was good, but far from low-fat.

What, Chapel Hill doesn't need directions?  I prefer Weaver St Market (in 
Carrboro) to Wellspring anyday.  Both have good deli and hot foods, but 
WSM makes their own bread.

I don't eat out very often, so I don't know of many low-fat restaurants, 
but my current favorite restaurant is Sushi-Yoshi, between Chapel Hill 
and Durham.  They have good sushi, and tempura, teriyaki, etc for any SAD 
folks.  While they only have 4 veggie sushis (mixed veggie, cukes, 
pickle, and avocado), I really like what they have, especially the mixed 
veggie.  Their house salad is great too, with a ginger dressing.  They're 
just off 15-501 south of I-40.  Turn left at the Hardee's after the 
Saturn dealer, and it's on the right.  The building is beautiful 
too--lots of windows so it feels very airy.

If you need any additional suggestions or directions, email me.

Good luck!
