Great! !

Delicious food and very kind owner that always come by to make sure you're covered! It's nice to go in the summer when you can sit outside.

I love this place. Who'd have thought Santa Fe would have such a phenomenal modern Indian restaurant? Chef Paddy is a genius chef and a very nice man. I would go back there in a heartbeat!

Who would have thought a gem of an Indian restaurant would be found in Santa Fe? While visiting in Santa Fe with friends we felt like Indian food one night and sort of stumbled onto this establishment because it was close to our hotel. It resulted in a fabulous meal for all four of us. Probably one of the best... More

This chef owned and operated restaurant produces the best foods of india that I have enjoyed here in the USA ,India,London and Santa Monica in Los Angeles. This place is simply not to be missed.

After being warmly greeted at the door, my friends and I experienced one of the best meals we've had. The flavor of each dish were beautifully blended. Let your server guide you to be best choices. We will be back!

Visited Raaga while travelling Route 66. Really happy we decided to go there for dinner. Food was great and the staff were all very friendly and attentive. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Santa Fe!

What a delightful surprise. In the states, well made Indian food is hard to come by. Most cities have at least one restaurant that can deliver Americanized Tandoori and a toned-down version of saag, but Raaga delivers the real deal. Subtle spicing, beautiful plating, great tastes. A special experience!

We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal, no missteps. We eat Indian food in New York pretty regularly, and this place is different, and very good. Enough enchiladas this week in NM so far, we were ready for something different. You can order the entrees regular or small, which is half of the regular. That was perfect for me. And you... More

Located in a somewhat residential area, this restaurant is not to be missed! The chef/owner is very personable and a master at his craft. The wait staff is friendly, attentive, and flexible. We had everything from starters thru dessert and everything was fabulous. Indian cuisine is our favorite and we have enjoyed it in India and through out the US.... More
