Very good Indian food! We ordered 9 appetizers between me and my wife, rather than ordering entrees. That way, we got a good sampler of the various flavors available. From the Honey Ginger Scallops to Nimboo Sword Fish to the Avocado Banana Chaat to to the Palak Chaat (crispy spinach) and others. All were all well prepared and presented. The service was cordial, however, I felt insulted by the table we were given. We had a late lunch on a weekday and when we arrived the restaurant was relatively empty. The MaitreD asked us if we had reservations which we didn't, and upon what appeared a visual examination of us, he assigned us the worst possible table. I had taken the day off and was we were dressed very casual, but that is no excuse to be treated as second class citizens. We asked our waitress to give us another table, as so many were empty, and she did. I was prepared to leave the place if she hadn't. The MaitreD was snobby at best. I guess he prefers the K Street business account customers. My wife and I spent well over $100 for lunch, as I had taken the day off to celebrate my birthday. I love Rasika, but you pay a premium for the reputation and favorable reviews. There has to be equal or better Indian food closer to home, and I am researching alternatives for next time I am in the mood for it.
