Diner Reviews
  • "We had dinner at 7:00 on a Saturday and the place was quiet, but it doesn't deserve to be so. The food was great and the staff were very attentive. The atmosphere and seating is very upscale and not at all like the Indian restaurants we are used to. We had samosas, tikka masala, vindaloo, naan and rice and all were as good as we have had anywhere else. We live in Orlando and are sure to be back again."

  • "A meal that should have taken about an hour took nearly 3 hours. One server for the whole restaurant, the poor guy was literally running through the restaurant back and forth to the kitchen. There was a manager present but did little to help the server. 20 minutes for a refill of rice, by the time it came out food was cold. 30 minutes for a glass of ice-tea and 40 minutes to get our checks and cash out. One of our meals came out incorrect, notified the server and he told us he would send over the manager, manager never showed. We were never offered dessert and had to repeatedly ask for our to-go boxes. I cannot believe a restaurant is run like this, absolutely the poorest management I have ever seen."

  • "When it first opened, it was amazing with great service and food. I am not sure if there is a new owner or management but this second experience was horrid. When we arrived at the restaurant (Fri night at 730 pm) the restaurant was empty. We waited 10 min before anyone appeared at the host stand. We were then seated and no one came back to take drink orders or give water. I got up to go find someone. Drinks were placed and anonther 15 min goes by and finally the drinks come. I ordered wine and the glass was only quarter filled for $14. I told them that is a small pour and they just laughed and walked away. We then ordered some appetizers. 20 min later, nothing. We got the bill and didn't stay for dinner. STAY CLEAR of this restaurant!"

  • "We went there on valentine's day. Took about 30 mins for them to get seated, and no exaggeration 30 mins to get a glass of water and that too after asking for it a couple of times. We were not asked if we needed anything else besides water.. No wait staff showed up at the table and I had to talk to the manager and he sent someone. We were hoping the food will be worth the 1 hour, but was less than mediocre at best and overpriced. They still use the same chef's name they started the restaurant with when the food and service was excellent. I don't plan to go back there ever again."

  • "Avoid this place. Food was mediocre and service was a disaster. What was spent on decor should have been spent on hiring and training staff. We waited almost an hour for the wrong order from a server who didn't understand the description in their own menu and why the order was wrong until a manager was called. Which turned into an hour and a half to get the correct order, that was not very good in the first place. All while being 3/4 empty. Definitely avoid this place."

  • "We have visited this restaurant before and had a better experience. The latest visit was very disappointing. The service was horrible. The place was short-staffed and it seemed the waitress was very new. She was running around like a chicken w it's head cut off. Her manager was publicly yelling at her. They never came back to check on us. Food was just ok this time. Ended up having some food packed to take home and when we got home, we noticed that they had not packed everything! Overall disappointing experience."

  • "We went to Raga for Valentine's. The reviews were spot on. Amazing food, so-so service. We ordered samosas to start and they were the best we'd ever eaten. The spices in them were superb. We ordered 3 entrees to split to taste more of the menu. We ordered chicken tikka masala, lamb meatballs and bone-in goat vindaloo. Also some garlic naan to augment the choices. We cleaned our plates. The service was lackluster. I asked for a soda 3x before it came. We ordered a cake to go. It took 20 minutes to put cake in a box. We heard the waitress ask for it at least 3x and watched the cooks ignore her. When we left we were angry, ruining the great experience. However, we would definitely go back with lower expectations for the service."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was very good but the service was ok. The waiter was not very informed about the food and although he tried hard he just wasn't very knowledgeable about the food. He was slow in getting the food to us also."

  • "This was a great experience! I have to say that they did not have the first dishes we ordered, which was a bit odd for Saturday night. However, our excellent waiter made some wonderful suggestions and we were very happy with our meals. The ambiance was amazing and not what you would expect for the second story of this particular building. This is the PERFECT date night. Oh the Naan cannot be beat."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed all the food we ordered. The atmosphere is lovely, a very good remodel from the prior tenant. The big miss was service. We had 2 servers who were both polite and nice. One was very unknowledgeable about the food which should never happen. In spite of that we enjoyed our experience and would return."

  • "Really liked the dining experience here. It was fairly quiet when we went. Although we had reserved, we didn't really need it. The ambience was great. The waiter was polite, although service was a bit slow."

  • "We visited Raga early on a Sunday evening, so it was quiet overall (could easily be quite lively on a Friday night). Food was outstanding. Even the chef asked if everything was ok. The decor is quite spectacular; very vibrant and interesting. Great spot to eat in Orlando; we will return as soon as we can."

  • "was one of the best Indian restaurants I have eaten in. service was wonderful, food was great. would go back there anytime I wanted good food and service"

  • "I've ate here before several times, however this time i was very disappointed. Not enough staff to attend to the guests. Our waiter was also the bartender, which you can imagine, slowed down our service tremendously. We were not able to order certain things from the menu because they did not have a cook to make some of those things. No coffee- what place doesn't have that??? The food quality was much lower than what ive had in the past. Not worth the high prices. Beautiful place, but service and food needs improvement"
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Service and ambiance were good...food presentation was also very good...food quality was marginal...kachori appetizer was too hard, inedible and filled with potatoes (like a samosa),,,ragda pattis was moderately good...bhindi could have been more flavorful...all food needs a bit more flavor and spice (not necesssarily hot)...overall fine dining experience"
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Food is very good. The waitress was very friendly and attentive but appeared to have had zero training. The restaurant was very quiet so there was no atmosphere."

  • "Food lacks any flavor for indian restaurant. The awesome waiter tried do hard to make up for the terrible food"
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "We have been here numerous time. Tandoori chicken was not as flavorful, yogurt was very liquidy, biryani was not made with same type of rice, and naan was not filled with stuff like it used to be. Told the waiter about the yogurt, he agreed, shrugged his shoulder, and just put it back on our table. Won't be coming back here!"

  • "Made reservation but it was obvious that none was needed as only 4 people there at 1PM. There was no tandoori chicken on the buffet. No non either and none was offered. Kheer was refilled just in time for my dessert but there were no bowls. How does one eat Kheer off a bread plate? Saw the review in the Orlando Sentenial when Raja first opened and could not make a reservation August...full? computer down?...no reservation necessary now....no customers!"

  • "I've Been to this restaurant quite a few times but something changed in the kitchen since the last time I visited. Everything we ordered was cooked differently; and. Not necessarily better! The sauces were watery, the rice dish was mall color and not tasty, even the soft drink was flat. Very disappointed in one of my favorite places."

  • "All our meals were spicier/hotter than we usually order If you visit ask for milder than normal Children's although ordered very mild were still too hot! Will probably not return"

  • "We had a very nice romantic dinner at Raga. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. There were only two downsides to our meal: 1 - The music was way too loud. It was also cheesy love songs, which are not my favorite. 2 - The restaurant was out of a couple items I asked for. I was excited to try an item off of the chef's "Fusion Menu," and was told it was only available on weekdays, which I found strange. You would think their special menu would only be available on weekends instead! Overall we had a lovely meal and a really excellent server. We will return the next time we are in Orlando."

  • "This is the 2nd time i went to Raga. The quality of food has dropped.. they do need a new chef or need step it up.. The ambiance is good."

  • "Very nice meal...waiter was a bit weak on skill and knowledge, but we, as well as our guests are picky Indian food eaters, and enjoyed Raga very much. We were a bit early so enjoyed a drink in the bar with at tentative staff. We will definitely return!"

  • "Overall the food was amazing - indian and pan-asian inspired. I ordered Chilean Sea Bass, which was wonderful melted in my mouth, however they did not do a good prep job removing the bones, and in a fine dining establishment this is not what i would expect. I pulled out 8 bones in 6 1-2" cubes pieces, normally a chef or manager would at least come by and apologize or give a beverage or something, all we got was an attitude from the waitress, so that part was not pleasant. The think that got me was that you could SEE the bones coming out of the fish..ummm anyone ever hear of fish tweezers? Other than that - everything else was amazing. The Mulligatawny soup was probably one of the best things I have ever eaten."
