The flash fried spinach salad was a highlight. We enjoyed a chicken palak (spinach dish) and a tomato based chicken dish. Both had very large chicken pieces and flavorful sauces. We prefer the sauces to be creamier. All in all it's a good Indian spot!

This place is actually kind of scary. I have a friend who used to work there and there health standards are atrocious. They roll the Naan dough on the dishwasher before its baked, first of all. All of the outgoing food is splashed with dishwater due to being in such close corridors, the white basmati rice that is served is... More

We ate at Rawal's the last day of our trip and were sad we couldn't eat there more. The food was the best we've ever eaten across the board! We are going back in a few weeks and Rawal's will be our first stop! We ordered the Surmai Kofta (dumplings in cashew cream) - this is the best thing ever... More

Totally the best Indian cuisine I have tasted anywhere in the world. Warm and friendly service in an intimate setting with reasonably priced fine dining.

Upon arriving to Santa Fe, NM, we were famished. Having been to Santa Fe many times, we just could not decide on what to eat. I love Southwestern cuisine but it was time for something different. A quick search on Trip Advisor showed us Rawal Raaga. Having been reviewed 500+ times, we felt this was the place to go. The... More

Our evening had a rather inauspicious beginning, given the fact that our Uber driver managed to get lost. I kid you not. We manged to sprint the the front door only to be told that the kitchen has closed. Paddy, the owner/ chef came out of the kitchen and greeted us warmly. We explained the GPS challenged Uber situation and... More

We haven’t eaten in India (yet), but I’d like to think we’ve had enough experience with Indian cuisine to appreciate what’s really good. We’ve eaten on Brick Lane. “Curry” Hill and Devon Ave. When we lived in Chicago, India House was a regular part of our rotation. We dined at Raaga during a recent trip to Santa Fe and thought...

Chef Paddy is a proud papa with the diners his lucky children. He took traditional East Indian dishes and turned them into his own delicious concoctions. The spinach salad is a must as an appetizer and is enough to serve two people. The seafood korma is especially tasty. It paired especially well with the Argentinian red wine. My wife had... More

Over the last 2 years we ( family )have eaten at Raaga multiple times and have always been happy with the food, service, and atmosphere. We were introduced to Raaga by our daughter who lives in Los Alamos. She bills Raaga as one of the best restaurants in Santa Fe. We agree. Netting it down: -The food is always fresh... More

Raaga is one of the best restaurants in Santa Fe. The food is made to order and always delicious. The chef even cheerfully accommodates my husband's restricted diet. The atmosphere is friendly and the space is warm and inviting. And the patio is a wonderful place for a summer meal!
