I love love love Rasika. Some of the best Indian food I have ever had (including in India). If I could I would bathe in their Dal Makhini. An amazing dish. Their cocktails are also delicious, especially the sparkling wine ones.

Overrpriced bad indian food having exotic names instead of the traditional name. Just eat the naan bread if you decide to go there. Mango lassi tasted like a bottled mango drink sold at a cheap price in India. The spinach tikki was tasteless and undercooked. Poor service and the focus is just to have as many people as possible cramped into the restaurant.

best restaurant by far in Washington DC. This is a great place for a few friends to come and chat and catch up as it is not too loud. We had 4 girls and we shared a few dishes including the amazing dishes below and don't forget the garlic naan! Palak Chaat -crispy baby spinach , sweet yogurt tamarind, and date chutney -It is so good, even though it has a sauce on his, it remained crispy. Bhindi Amchoor: Sliced okra, dry mango powder Cauliflower Bezule: Mustard seeds, green chilies, curry leaves, lemon juice Dal Makhani: Lentils, tomato, garlic, fenugreek The sauces were right on. I and going to have to come back again and again, because just writing this makes me want to go down and chow down right now. We also ordered a bottle of wine and our final bit came out to about $40 a person with tip. Not too bad for the best meal in DC.

Amazing decor. First impression was, "these guys do not know a thing about indian food" but I was wrong. These guys have perfected Indo-Pak food. The food was not oily and presented beautifully. My only advice is to call ahead and make a reservation and use the valet parking offered by the restaurant and not the one by the parking garage across the street.

There's nothing more I can or have to say about Rasika. Perfection all around! With MLK's day fall on Winter Restaurant Week this year, my husband and I were lucky enough to have the day off and to participate in their lunch RW menu. As for the RW menu - My husband and I such a hard time deciding - there were just too many choices and I honestly would had been happy with eating any of the items listed! Ultimately I knew I had to go with their signature palaak chaat and my husband went with their sea bass for appetizers. And both dishes did not disappoint. They were a lot bigger portioned than I expected especially for a RW menu. We were already feeling satisfied after our round of appetizers. Then came the main entrees - lamb almond, ginger curry and chicken curry served with a basket of naan, mint paratha, and rice. We finally understood why nearby tables had so many bags of leftovers - there were just too much food - food so good that my husband and I didn't have the self control to say no. (I regret later on however - I should have left a piece of chicken or lamb so I could ask to pack the sauce to go lol - what was I thinking?!) Desserts - carrot halwa and gulab jamun - I found my carrot halwa to be a bit too sweet and wished there were a bit more ice cream! I assumed my husband enjoyed his dessert since he didn't offer me any and licked the syrup off his bowl/plate clean. What an incredible meal! Rasika is one of the few restaurants that does RW right - after today's impressive food and service, my husband and I already booked their tasting for Vday! Honestly restaurant week or not - What are you waiting for? Get on opentable and make your reservation already!

Great experience for being first timers. Our server Brittney suggested the 4 course meal and was glad we listened. Although the wine pairing wasn't the best so just pick a wine and enjoy the experience.

It was very good, but not standing out to be one of the best resturants in DC. For people that like to eat light, I would definitely suggest the Dal Makhani. The Paalak Chaat wasn't that good; very oily. I still would come here

We went for lunch after a morning of museums. We ordered tandoori chicken, a halibut dish and the bread basket. The food was good but not the best Indian I have ever had. Our cocktails were a little boring and the nan plain, so a 4 star, instead of 5, but a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
