We just thought our family loved Indian food! This place exceeded all of our expectations. Best part about it was our "food guide" Chris! He led us on a journey to all the best parts of the menu. Delicious but our hands down fave was the green curry! Don't miss it! With second being the fried spinach. End the night... More

Nice looking pricy restaurant but the food was below average for an Indian.They served us a cocktail with out of date juice (tasted funny and itchy). I sent it back and server didnt say a word about it. When I asked, the waitress said they took it off our check which looked like it. They even charge you for their... More

Took a while to get in but it was worth it. Has the cauliflower Bezul (very very nice) and the Duck Vindaloo (pretty good). This really is a very good indian restaurant.

Rasika is the best. The food is always fresh, full of flavor, interesting, and beautifully presented. The service is the best; the Manager & serving people are attentive and knowledgeable. Asking only for "a wonderful red," I had a great wine, too.

Our second trip to Rasika and Wow!! Service is impeccable and friendly and the food is just perfectly delicious. The Palak Chat is out of this world and the chicken Tikka masala (you won't want to share).

Worth the wait, worth sitting at a tiny table if that's all that's available (as in our case), worth taking your chances and sitting in the lounge/bar, worth waiting months for! We lucked out and were able to walk in and be seated. Yes, order that crispy spinach; there's a reason it's so popular. We also had the chicken tikka... More

The food here is creative, tasty, well served and not too expensive but plan ahead - they are booked really far in advance.

We were promptly seated at our reserved time, which is always a nice way to start the evening. The place was busy, but we were still able to enjoy quiet conversation - and ogle various dishes as they were delivered to other tables as we perused the menu. Our server was polite and helpful (making recommendations), yet gave us time... More
