We went yesterday while in town and having heard some great things. The food and ambience were pretty average. Having been to some great Indian restaurants in nyc and other cities this one didn't live up to that standard.

We went here for a late lunch on a Monday afternoon. It was excellent food, though it isn't cheap. We spent about $100 for lunch including tip, without alcohol. We ordered the Tandoori Chicken Tikka, which was amazing. The chicken was large pieces of white meat expertly cooked. It was so tender and succulent. We also ordered the Malai Palak... More

Do high-end dining only few times a year. This is a favorite when I have guests who are not going to worry about the dinner bill. Not an extensive menu but everything is excellent. Fried spinach is a must, though it has been a bit too greasy a few times.

Shortly after arriving in the city I was taken to Rasika for our evening meal and I was blown away by the quality of the food and service they provided. Their beautiful vegetarian korma wasn't too sweet and had so much flavour. Rasika set the bar high for the rest of my dining experiences while visiting DC

As I read other reviews it is my impression that most Indian food lovers don't think of it as foodie cuisine. Rasika is one of the great restaurants in this country Much of what passes for Indian food are really British inventions, Rasika takes real Indian cuisine and goes from there. We started with the cauliflower, crab, and saag chaat... More

Sunday brunch at the restaurant on New Hampshire Ave (there are two different locations) - best Indian we've had! Food was perfect - salmon cakes and bread basket for appetizer, lamb curry and seafood curry, then date/toffee dessert - all delicious! Excellent service, comfortable ambience, probably need reservation as the place was packed on a Sunday morning.

We went here due to a recommendation. The restaurant is quite good, the taste of the food was excellent and also the service was very good. Price/quality ratio was ok. The place appears a little bit formal, so that we felt in T-Shirt and Jeans a little bit underdressed. We have eaten in better Indian restaurants, but overall, we can... More

I ate dinner at this restaurant twice over a business trip. I have no idea why this hotel is rated so high. Yes the food is average to 'tastes good on some dishes' but for the rating, I was expecting something amazing. Their gulab jamun and sheekh kebabs are good. However their Nali Gosht was so salty, I couldn't eat... More

From the moment we walked through the doors we were treated superbly. To start with, our reservation was actually for the next week, but they kindly and without skipping a beat worked us in. Our waiter, Ahmed was helpful, friendly and personable. He felt like a new friend and recommended dishes and wines to pair with our food. Without our... More

My daughter made special reservations (hard to come by) to take my husband and I to dinner. We had a glorious time. Our waiter was fantastic. Knowledgeable and helpful. We relied on him to pick appetizers and meal choices. We were not disappointed. The food is Indian, but with a very light touch and very imaginative. We enjoyed every bit.... More
