We are visiting Washington for a few days and happened to be in the area of the place so we came in for lunch after searching Trip Advisor. It is as great as most people say it is. I love Indian food and this is truly one of the more unique experiences I had with Indian food.

My husband and I visited Rasika this past weekend and it was absolutely amazing. My family is Indian and I have high standards when it comes to Indian food. We got the 6 course tasting menu and highly recommend it. Honestly, if you're willing to splurge, it's a must because we tried delicious dishes we may not have ordered. We... More

Went to Rasika for our anniversary dinner. Had made reservations for 9 pm, but arrived a few minutes late. However, the restaurant was running late as well, so could only seat us at 9:30 pm. Because they were late in seating us they gave us a free appetizer - the palak chaat, which was excellent. My wife ordered a cocktail... More

We visited with out two ping kids, wanting to expose them to Indian on a recent trip. We all had a great time. The food and drinks were amazing and service was equally good. I would highly recommend this to anyone. They were very accommodating to children and would be a great date night too.

I had lunch at Rasika and the food was very, very good. I had a ginger-limeade (non-alcoholic), 2 appetizers and a dessert and everything was great. Instead of one entree I had 2 appetizers, a shrimp dish and a fish dish. Both dishes were good but the fish was excellent and so tender it practically melted in your mouth. I... More

Great place to eat, good service, good atmosphere. They were packed and they managed to fit me in after I called a second time asking if they had any cancellations.

Usually when a place gets so many positive reviews from publications I tend to hesitate as I think 'great PR team'. I was hoping for a decent meal and didn't expect to be blown away by the food. However, all the reviews from publications and social media is spot on. The palak chaat is amazing, cauliflower app is delicious. Service... More

Some of the best texture and mouth feel of food for sure. If you love texture combined with layers of complex flavor run don't walk to this restaurant. This is the kind of high end Indian food I have only found in Lindon. If you enjoy Indian food in the US this will expand your experience of both taste and... More
