Good Indian

I go to Raaga twice a month probably and have for over a decade. Their food is good, the buffet is solid, but the service has suffered a little recently. Go to the menu for the really good dishes.

This restaurant is very close to my place. I go there very often. I love their food. Best thing is they have a groupon also for $20 which you can use to pay for $40. I always keep one in handy.

Very surprised, based upon first impression parking my car... However, from the moment I walked in and walked out I could not be more happy. The food was delicious. There's a lot of Indian food in Northern VA, but this is by far some of the best around here. Recommend the paneer, the chicken tika masala, the naan of course... More

When we are at home we go to Raaga for the buffet every weekend either on Saturday or Sunday.If, for some reason, we can't go on a weekend, we will goon a weekday. From our stays in India, we have developed a love for Indian food. We travel all over the Country and try to experience Indian buffets wherever we... More

We've eaten at Raaga a number of times, always for dinner (eat-in & take out). The food is excellent. The appetizer, Palak Chat (lightly fried spinach with spices) is always a treat. Last night I had one of my favorite entrees which is Rogan Josh (boneless lamb pieces in a creamy yogurt curry sauce & spices). The sauce is terrific... More

I've eaten dinner here and last week experienced the lunch buffet for the first time. Both times the food was very, very good and service was attentive. I particularly appreciated the variety and freshness of food on the buffet, but I also thought the dinner menu choices on the previous visit were very good. Particular thumbs up for the chickpeas...

If you are craving Indian food, this is the place to go without breaking the bank. We have dined there three times with different groups and have never been disappointed. Exceptional fried spinach appetizer, tandoori dishes, tiki masala chicken, and onion kulcha (onion nan). The service has always been quick and attentive but the decor is lacking in charm and...

I went for lunch with a coworker and found the food and service to be good. During lunch, the food is served buffet style. There were a number of entrees of both meat based and vegetarian variety. I tried some of everything and found it to all be good. The restaurant had good service and was clean.

Good solid delicious Indian food. The restaurant can be difficult to spot as it's tucked in behind and next to a small plaza adjacent to Route 7. The outside of the restaurant gives it an impression that it's quite a fancy place but in actuality it's quite a normal setting on the inside with a nice ambiance. Service is very... More

loved the food, solid service too. Tough place to spot coming SE on 7; look for Duangrat restaurant and Raaga is on the same frontage road. Recommend the chicken korma. overall a bit pricey but the quality is worth it...I'll be back!
