Too bad this place is no longer in business. Need to remove this from your list – Went there last Saturday only to find that"Death & Co" bar had taken its place-ended up having a drink there though which was good
This is easily my FAVORITE restaurant in the city – i became acquainted with this restaurant a few years ago and always make it a point to take someone new there each time i go. i've had my birthday dinner there, i've taken my dad there when he came into town from FL, i've taken my friend who was visiting from san fran there and i'll probably have my anniversary dinner there next month. their red wine reduction sauce on the filet mignon is just to die for, as are the samosas. i've also been known to down a few raga-ritas in my time (or were they raga-tinis?). whatever they were, they sure get the job done!
Absolutely Wonderful ! – Raga is perfect in everyway! My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this restaurant on a lazy Sunday evening and I am so glad we did!. Raga is a cozy little place, with great music and the staff couldnt be nicer. However the real standout is the food ! We took our waiters suggestions to order the wild boar with coconut rice and the lamb chops. WOW! They were both amazing. The way the Indian and French styles meld together is perfect. The meat was sooo tender and tasty, best lamb I have ever had in any restaurant by far. The Indian spices give everything a unique and tantalizing flavor. Try the Naan bread with mango chutney. Give Raga a try you wont be disappointed.
Exotic Cuisines with Perfection – I go and eat out at many different restaurants and this is one place you have go and try. This is my first time writing a review for a restaurant because the food and service was excellent. The filet mignon dish was superb! I would defiantly come back here again as one of my top choices.
It's a small cute restaurant.
User review by SALRangers – Raga's is a romantic, cozy restaurant. The exotic food is beautifully presented and is a delight in delicious combinations. It is also extremely well priced. The staff is incredibly helpful and attentive. The bar is very well stocked with interesting beers and well priced wines. This is one of my favorite restaurants and it is not to be missed. Your friends will thank you for introducing them to this gem!
User review by shamer – We love eating here for the comfortable yet creative atmosphere, the scrumptious fare, and friendly staff. We haven't been disappointed yet. We'll be back!
It doesn't get any better than this – From the incredible food, to the warm atmosphere, to the friendly service, this downtown neighborhood spot doesn't miss a beat. These innovators of french indian fusion do a great job of making dishes as interesting as possible while still being accessible. Pair you food with the excellent beers on tap or their well priced wine list.
We had a party in their private room and they made it truly memorable and were very helpful in the planning.
Inventive Indian that stands out amid the plethora of similar spots on Sixth Street. – The Scene
Unpolished but cozy, with red walls, arty sconces and deep, comfortable booths, Raga calls little attention to itself. There's a downstairs room for parties or busy nights. The service is casual and skillful; servers are able to discuss the restaurant's well-chosen wines and beers at length.
Raga does a brilliant job with Indian fusion dishes as simple as vegetable curry or as ambitious as pan-roasted lamb sirloin with cranberry beans and nigella ragout. Nigella seeds also scent the otherwise conventional roasted potatoes, which typifies the restaurant's inventive, yet solid, approach. Across the menu, and even within a single dish, there is a stunning variety of scintillating, distinct flavors. Mussels in deeply aromatic lemongrass broth make an excellent starter, as do the light and spicy house samosas. Keep an eye out for safari-esque specials featuring wild boar, alligator and the like.
A Jewel of a restaurant – Off the beaten path, this jewel of a restaurant shines just one block away from the plethora of 6th street Indian restaurants. Raga stands out with an interesting fusion of French and Indian cooking. We were well attended to by the enthusiastic staff especially the manager Tony Gaskin who made excellent suggestions for our menu selections. From beginning appetizers, the scallops were incredible, to the delicious chocolate souffle with rasberry mint sorbet, we were delighted by the taste sensations.
I love this place. – I am not sure if I would call the food here "Indian" as it is a fusion of what seems to be French with an Indian or exotic touch. I guess the way my friends and I described it was "The French Colonies".
The food is delicious and beautifully prepared along with the friendly and personable service. Prices are not cheap, but not expensive but the meal is worth every penny.
One thing I liked about this place is that I never felt rushed or pressured to give up my table ot incoming guests.
Be sure to reserve in advance!
