Chicken green masala, chicken tikki masala, garlic herb naan, and mango chutney, cold iPA.....heavenly! Best Indian food ever!!! We were in town looking for delicious food. We called ahead and asked if we needed a reservation and a gentleman said not if we came on over within 30 minutes. We walked over from the Hyatt Regency Capital Hill in 20, but they already had a wait list of 30 minutes. While we were waiting the wait list climbed to 2 hours. They fit us in quickly and we then enjoyed an incredible meal. Highly recommend....vibrant, colorful, delicious and happening spot!

From the time we walked in until the time we left the staff was very friendly & kind.

There is valet parking available right near the entrance.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable about everything being served & just all around GREAT. He ask prior to us ordering if we had any food allergies. He asked if there was a particular time we needed to leave by as well.

We ordered the 6 course meal. The cost was about $190 but well worth it. With this you got 2 of everything. Appetizers, main dish, & desert.

I will be visiting again. I suggest making s reservation early.

We had a wonderful meal at Rasika Penn. We arrived before our family and enjoyed a cocktail at the bar- Mumbai Manhattan was an interesting twist on this cocktail. We were seated promptly for our 730pm reservation. The spinach app is amazing- crispy and enjoyable. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and service was excellent.
Really enjoyed this restaurant.

This is probably the best Indian food I’ve ever had. The fried basil is awesome. The bread is so good that you must take some home. Every other dish is like the best Indian food you ever had but better. The only issue is the restaurant tax being in dc.

Service is just ok, or maybe a bit snooty but I’ll overlook that because the food is good and I don’t feel sick or guilty afterwards. Great job Rasiki. I can’t wait to come back.

This place was overcrowded (probably with first timers) and have limited table space. Khubani Chicken Tikka was under cooked and smells bad. Murg Masalam was just okay, daal makhani tasted like a tomato puree, nothing makhani in it..Additional parking charges (valet) adds up to the overly priced place.
