Modern & traditional Indian fare served in a contemporary space with canopied turquoise booths.- Google
"Their spinach appetizer Palak Chaat is one of my favorite dishes in the city."
"We absolutely love Rasika and eagerly return again and again."

Spectacular modern Indian food. We arrived at 9:45pm on a Friday, so missed the chance to try the chef's tasting menu (probably just as well - it seemed somewhat slanted towards fish dishes), but made up our own instead. Absolutely wonderful superb tastes; lbeautifully presented. Food price was entirely fine for what we got, but the drinks seemed a little on the high side. Helpful, attentive service.

Always loved and craved rasika food. Went today and was so disappointed with the lack of flavor and new found sweetened foods that came out. There is no kick and o think they have changed the food for a non-Indian crowd catering to bland Indian food. Also, Their roti is not a roti! Their masala tea comes out like warm! These are the two worst things you could do to an Indian!

Palak Chaat adoit, simply delicious. The atmosphere is delightful. Staff/Servers are pleasant and very helpful when it comes to menu suggestions. I'm definitely going to return here. My first experience with this restaurant was definitely positive.

Rasika deserves all the praise it gets. Amazing food, great service, awesome dining experience. Worth it for a special occasion or just a random night after work. Never had anything there I didn't love.

Definitely one of the best Indian restaurants I have ever been to! It was tough to get a reservation and we ended up booking 2 tables instead of one big table. (Try getting a table for 10 at this place. It is next to impossible). In the end, they sat us at a table of eight and the other 2 sat in the adjacent table. Not exactly what we wanted, but they did their best to accommodate us. The 'Palak Chaat' was highly recommended and one mouthful was enough to understand why. The grilled panneer was done to perfection and the vegetable hot pot curry was fantastic. The highlight of the lunch was the vegetable biriyani. The presentation and the taste were spectacular. Even the cucumber raitha was great. I hope I can go back another time and taste other items on their menu.

Rasika West End is an absolutely wonderful high-end Indian restaurant. The chefs take traditional Indian dishes and make them a bit more refined and appealing to those who love Indian classics, but also great for people new to Indian food. By far the most amazing appetizer is the Palak Chaat. It is crispy spinach with a yogurt drizzle and other ingredients that create amazing flavor combos. I have been here a few times, and highly suggest coming for restaurant week. I feel you really get your monies worth if you do the restaurant week menu and split entrees with a friend so you can taste more than one dish. Rasika is a must-visit of DC!
