This is a warm, inviting, inventive, and usually efficient restaurant which I have had the good fortune to visit many many times. It is near DC's Verizon Center (where we watch the Wizards basketball team about a dozen times a year), DC's theater district, and not far from some terrific public art galleries.

The lack of training on menu items of the servers and hosts is sad. Listening and comprehension skills doesn't exist. You've got to answer several different questions to assure that what you're looking for is provided.

Rasika is incredible. The only restaurant where I could go vegan and not care at all. Food is fantastic and the service. Getting a booking is the hard part!

I have dined at Rasika several times and I can say they have always been in the top 85% of Indian restaurants I've visited over 40 years +. But they are not in the very top tier. But, I think Indian food fans will enjoy it.

This is the best Indian ever. Not your usual neighborhood place, but fine dining with a wonderful Indian menu. We simply let the waiter guide us through our options and each of us had fabulous food and appetizers. You cannot go wrong. Best in DC by far and probably one of best in the entire country.

Honestly, you can never go wrong with Rasika, Rasika West End and Bindass. They have exemplary food and beverage.

I can say Rasika is one of the best Indian restaurant in the whole country. Each dishes is a master piece. So delicious masterful Vikram Sunderam, never fails to surprise you with his tastiest dishes. His deserts are the most delightful. Wine selection is unbeatable. Service is of course flawless. You definitely need to make reservation specially if you're dining... More
