Best Indian food in Santa FeExcellent food. Small place, so only small groups (<5 ideal). Friendly staff and owner greets guests.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPersonalized ServiceThe wait staff was knowledgeable about their food and the ingredients, and more than helpful in selecting the perfect dish for me. The pappadam was fresh, the korma was flavored with lovely spices that left room for the vegetable flavors to come through, and the chai was authentic Indian. Super-great!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA new believer...Brought my Uncle to dinner at Raaga. Prior to the meal, he was convinced he wasn't a fan of Indian food. He left smiling---like the rest of us.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Innovative Indian CuisinePaddy Rawal's Raaga is a most welcome addition to the Santa Fe scene. His take on Indian cuisine is fresh and lively, blending a few elements of other cuisines in as well. Definitely the best East Indian offerings in Santa Fe.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Authentic Indian CuisineSome of the best Indian food we have ever had.
Paddy the owner is very entertaining. The spice
level was perfect and the curries were spot on.
I would definitely return and will recommend to
my friends.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWhere's the Thali?Great Indian food with bit of fusion - creative cooking that really works. A Thali in India is a complete meal with small dishes that cover all the bases as though you are eating family style with a large group - 3 different dishes plus dal, rice, raita, pickle, a sweet and sometimes bread. Since there was no Thali, my wife and I ordered 2 dishes, and a raita and bread. To order another dish, dal, pickle and desert would have been just way too much food and cost. Great great food - but please, give us a daily Thali or two so we can eat the way we do when we are in India.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery authentic Indian cuisine.Very authentic Indian cuisine.

The restaurant's dining room was a bit cold when we first entered but our server, JD turned the thermostat up so we would be comfortable - he was both professional and friendly. Our compliments to Paddy on the wild salmon and ginger chicken dishes - they are wonderful! We complemented our dinner with a nice Pinot Noir from northern CA and an order of the onion naan.1/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
