This is a hidden gem in Santa Fe. They have indoor and outdoor seating in a little patio that is quite private and lovely. The service is fantastic and so is the food. There is something for everyone and a good wine list as well. A must if you like Indian food and are in Santa Fe.

This is the second time I have eaten at Raaga with friends who live here, and I am again impressed with the perfectly spiced dishes, along with some creative new treatments: the crispy baby spinach appetizer with tomatoes and a tangy/sweet yoghurt dressing was outstanding. The atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming.

I really wanted to give this a good review because I like Indian food and the place has a relaxed friendly atmosphere but it's really nothing to write home about. The best part was the lentil and coconut soup. The eggplant with peanut sauce was ok. The lamb tikka tandoori was terrible. I'm not generally a fan of Indian deserts... More

Fantastic Food in any city, but in Santa Fe, unexpected. Parking is interesting, but this is a must visit place. Delicious food. Good wines.

Chicken tikka platter; requested 'hot'. -was perfectly spiced and heat married superbly with obviously choice chicken breast carvings. Also, the vegetable medley deserve notice for the hinted coconut and 'cooling' tied this dish to perfection. -The owner/chef graced the room and introduced himself to personally inquire on satisfaction. Very humble and professional chef. Rasmalai; dessert -admittedly I rarely eat desserts... More

I've had several things to eat here and can't remember what they were but all were very tasty. All the locals I know love it. Very friendly owner. Maybe somewhat pricey compared to other Indian restaurants here, but the food is a very high quality so it's worth it.

We were served by a friendly and gregarious waiter which was the highlight of the meal. We started with the Spinach appetiser which has a light humus coating and is flashed fried. It was delicious. For our main courses we both had tandoori dishes. The salmon was dry and flavourless. Both tandoori dishes were accompanied with rice and broccoli (the... More

Santa Fe has many wonderful restaurants but when Paddy Racal opened his Raaga, we suddenly had the best Indian food in all of New Mexico. Every dish, every bite is a delight with attentive service to make you feel at home.

Went to dinner here with two other colleagues, one a vegetarian and we were thrilled with the experience. It is a small, funky place with indoor and outdoor seating. We chose indoor and got a booth that was cozy and quiet enough for good conversation. Food and service were excellent and the owner/chef came to our table to check on... More

Fresh and tasty fare. Weird vibe. Made me a tikka masala convert. The staff is inattentive,so if you're not in a hurry and don't mind a heap of bragging the food is worth a try.
