“Was a hit for all of us!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We are not locals and have gone to this restaurant twice in two months.The first time was with my husband and daughter and we all loved our meals, except the poppadoms. They were not what we expected and really did not like the flavor, texture, etc. The spinach app was absolutely the best of the evening and that is the first thing we ordered last night when we returned to this restaurant with our son. The shrimp curry dish, lentil dish, and the lamb were wonderful. Our waiter was excellent and the service was perfect. It was a great way to end another weekend in DC. We will be going back for the third time! Prices were reasonable for the portions. Reservations are highly recommended. The first time we went, our reservations were made over a month in advance. This past weekend, we were able to make them the night before.

“Awesome service, small little tables but some amazing food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

I recommend sharing the tasting plate and ordering one or two more things off the menu. The fried spinach appetizer is amazing. So is the banana avocado chat. I don't even like spinach and I couldn't resist the spinach appetizer. The meal, shared was affordable for DC standards. Even with two drinks. I think the tasting menu allowed me and my friends to try so many of Rasika's menu highlights. Our other favorite besides the appetizer and chat was the halibut. Our least favorite was the paneer.

“Exceptional, quality Indian food!”

My first time at this restaurant and what a great experience, friendly service, but most importantly good quality food. If you want fine dining Indian style, this is the place to go.
