As an Indian person, Rasika is the gold standard of Indian restaurants. Their menu is innovative while sticking to the classic flavors in an elegant setting. Sometimes when chefs try to modernize Indian food, they lose the authentic flavors and spices that make Indian food...More

Food was awesome. Restaurant was beautifully decorated. Service was ok. We didn’t see our waiter for quite some time and needed drinks, no one else came either. Very quick with the bill though!
