This place is slipping. The aloo tikka were surprisingly dense and cold. The surmai kofta were salt bombs, nearly inedible, three kofta to an order. Naan was dripping with oil. Used to be our favorite Indian food in SF. Disappointing and a poor value. Three stars is generous for this visit. Hope it was a bad night.

The Chef was wonderful. He greeted many customers at the door as well as checked on them during the meal. The service was very attentive and the food was delicious. I had the shrimp curry and my guest had chicken curry. Both were superb.

Food is amazing! Everything we ordered from starters to mains. Unfortunately our server was not great. Never offered drinks or recommendations, and was short all night. But, several other servers helped us and were great, and good was fantastic.

I wanted to like this BUT, Chicken was overcooked reminded me of a wool rug. Chef was heavy handed with spices. Spinach salad "tempura flash fried" was inedible and one of the most greasy dishes I've ever ordered. Lastly, we made a reservation 15 mins prior to our seating time and arrived to find the lobby packed like sardines with guests overflowing uncomfortably into dining area. Frantic workers said issue was that guests "were not leaving on time." Yikes.

Not a typical Indian restaurant. You can choose your heat level. The flash fried spinach salad was unique and tasty. We ordered the papadums served with mint/tamarind chutney. We shared the large size entree of Chicken Makhani, a delicious tomato and cream sauce. We also shared an order of Ginger mint Naan. For dessert we ordered the Ras Maali. It was a perfect meal in Santa Fe when you need a change from NM food.

A lot of hype... They will fill you up with mostly rice, ordered the seafood korma regular portion, underspiced, not that much seafood, could count 1 and a half shrimp. This place wouldn't score two stars at a big city in the East coast.

Our most recent meal at Raaga was delicious (as usual!) and served with the same welcoming, meticulous care we have come to expect from this gem of a restaurant. If you're in Santa Fe, Raaga's is a "must visit" during your trip. (If you live in Santa Fe, chances are, you already know that!) Chef Paddy visits every table personally, to make sure your meal is excellent and exquisite. The combination of Indian cuisine with local Santa Fe ingredients (ancho chile in the Pindi Chana, for example) means that while you may have tasted good Indian food before, you've NEVER tasted anything quite like Raaga's masterpieces before.
Thank you for another fantastic meal!

The food here is delicious. Everything tastes so fresh and it's clear they pay great attention to the quality of food. Our waiter was great, and Paddy, the owner/chef came around to our table to make sure everything was to our liking. It definitely was! If you want Indian food in Santa Fe, this is definitely the place to go.

I'm from Chicago where great Indian food is easy to come by. Raga was a huge disappointment. The samosa was filled with what seemed like pea paste with an oil(?) and cilantro dipping sauce. No chutney.
The chicken tikka masala's sauce was thin, there was a huge chunk of broccoli, and the chicken was not tender.
The naan was good.
The service was indifferent.

We went here for a different type of Thanksgiving. This is a fabulous, really amazing, authentic Indian Food Restaurant. One of the best I have been to. Also had a great wine selection. Love it. The only critique I had out of the large selection of food we tasted was that the naan wasn't fabulous.

Overall the food was good. However, our entrees arrived lukewarm. The menu is a little limited when it comes to entrees with meat compared to other Indian restaurants. The restaurant is in a small house converted to a restaurant so the tables for two are very close together, but the ambiance is nice. Onsite parking is limited to three vehicles with additional parking within a couple minute walk. Overall good experience and worth trying.

The food was really very good!! We were impressed! The chef came to our table 3 times to see how everything was - a very friendly person. Overall when we are coming back to visit Santa Fe we'll definitely come back there to eat. Bravo!!!
