We are regulars at Indian restaurants in whichever city we can find a good one. Rasika combines outstanding food, an extensive (well-curated) wine list and very good service. We went on a Sunday night – the restaurant was full. Noise was quite reasonable and tables are mostly not too close. We let our waiter recommend starters – Sea Bass Polichattu... More

The bartender was very friendly and made great drinks . We only waited 10mins when the host came and took our drinks up and told us... More

Very good indian food at a reasonable price point, which gave good value for money. Some parts of the restaurants were a bit too cool due to a very aggressive air conditioning

I had a dinner there in this Indian restaurant following an advise of a colleague. Very good food and quick service. I was sitting in the bar area which is quite noisy. Anyway, I had a good moment there. Staff is very keen to help with a smile.

I really love this restaurant as there is none other like it! Such a classy establishment with a fantastic wine list. My favorite dish hands down is simple - Palak chaat! This is fried crispy spinach in a yoghurt and chutney mix. Absolutely delicious! The decor is very classy and very Washingtonian. Do make reservations as it can get very... More

I strolled down to the restaurant last Friday evening as I was staying very close by at the Hyatt Place . Although it was full and I did not have a reservation the staff managed to find me a seat in 20 minutes . I went for the crispy spinach, cauliflower and roti along with a pint of the local... More

This is outstanding, upscale Indian cuisine in DC. We visit Washington at least twice per year and this is usually our first stop. The fish and seafood dishes, in particular, are always excellent. Have been here 7 or 8 times!

One of my best restaurant meals ever. We had the tasting menu, and it was awsome. Highlights were a precourse with spinach, best precourse ever. Then black cod and lamb chop was insanely good! Try this, if you can. Dessert was also terrific. Service was perfect, informative, attentative, friendly and warm. You could see the waiters enjoyed their job, everyone... More
