This was our fourth time at Rasika (both locations). Always had a fantastic meal. Definitely need reservations. Our two favorite dishes are the signature palak chaat (fried spinach) and tawa baigan (eggplant and potato). Had an incredibly tasty mixed drink of dhaniya cooler cocktail which contains gin, port and cucumber. While the lamb dish we had, ananas gosht, was quite tasty, it was mostly sauce and not all that much lamb. I would pick something else. BTW, service can be extremely fast. If you want a leisurely meal, make sure to advise them - or order in stages, slowly.

I had reservations and the restaurant was half empty and yet they made me wait for 15 minutes to prepare a table. The dover sole was amazing and the black pepper crab was excellent and the cauliflower was great but that was it. All the main course items were just mediocre. I ordered three different naans but all were the same with different names. This place is overrated for sure.

I love good Indian food and went here because of other reviews that I had read. I was so pleased I did! The staff was helpful and very knowledgable about the dishes. They made great suggestions based on flavors, meats and veggies that I like. They really want you to have a good experience.

Everything was terrific and I look forward to trying new dishes on my next trip.

I will certainly be back!

Best Indian food in the DMV. Service is outstanding. Ask your server for suggestions if you're unsure about what to order. You will not be disappointed.
