We were in Santa Fe and looking for something different to eat. We had some of the best Indian food at Paddy Rawals. The food was delightful and the service was quick and efficient. We had both the lamb and chicken curry and it was...More

Excellent authentic Indian. The chef even leaves the kitchen to check on the tables! Service was excellent and service was fast. Keep in mind they close a bit early in the evening.

Great potential and good flavors, but everything seemed a bit off: Snooty greeting at 5:30p - "you mean you DON'T have reservations!?!" (during our 90 minutes visit, they never filled up.) Slow, slow, slow service and follow-up. Seemed to have lost, or had not prepared,...More

This was some of the best Indian food we've had. The flavors were complex, deep and rich. The vegetables were crisp and fresh. The chicken and shrimp were done to perfection. They spiced the dishes exactly to our specifications

Namaste! Do you serve dishes that do not contain wheat? One of us is Celiac and must eat gluten free. We usually do not have a problem with Indian food, which is our favorite, but I wanted to make sure that there are some options that are gluten free. Shukrya! Phear milte hain.
