I've never been a fan of Indian cuisine. However, I really enjoyed the food at Rasika. I'll definitely return at some point in the near future!

Rasika provides a great experience, and their food is to die for. Everything moves a little slowly at Rasika - many love that. I am just one who moves too quickly. I ALWAYS go to Rasika, however, whenever I am in DC - which is every couple of weeks.

Always a pleasure. Sometimes you want to think only about food related memories, and sometimes you want to order without thinking. Rasika will appease both mindsets and satisfy the nose, tasetbuds, and belly.

Rasika requires large groups to order and dine in what amounts to "family style" with a limited menu. Not to worry! Though of course, we'd prefer the individually customizable variety of the full menu, Rasika manages a broad enough selection expertly prepared and served to please even the most finiky among us. One of our long-time favorites.

So good. Every time I come here, it is just delicious. Great cocktails as well. The spinach appetizer and black cod are signature dishes. But a vegetarian will be in heaven here with many flavorful options.

Did the chef's tasting menu...everything was superb, but that amazing cod still haunts me (never in my life did I imagine I be lauding cod in any way). When I moved to DC everybody kept saying go to Rasika...5 years later, I finally see what they were swooning about.

Neither the food &/or the service was worth the hype! It was a fair, tried once , definitely not dying to go back! I really would have loved to & wanted to say otherwise so I am disappointed that I am not based on the experience.

The food is good, the service is a little so. This place is so highly rated that they read their own reviews and behave as if you are lucky to be there (and given the line for reservations, I suppose you are). The food gets them 5 stars, the attitudes 3.
