What Insiders Are Saying
One of the best options for both Indian and a fine dining experience in the city.
We were seated in front window which was quieter and let us catch up with an old friend without yelling. Perfect!! We have eaten her quite a few time. Food is always great.
It was a nice dinner for my birthday. Thank you.
Decent nothing special. Taste the same as oinsian food at a place not as fancy. Aka akbar in baltimore is just as good if not better. The hype didn’t live up to it.
I used to live in DC a few years ago and ate at Rasika frequently - I remember the quality being much better before. The palak chaat was still good, but everything else came out lukewarm/almost cold and extremely salty... Our waiter was very nice and the service was good, but it didn't make up for the lack of quality in food
One of DC’s best - food, service, experience. Never disappoints.
Generally I sit in Christopher’s section. He has a fantastic memory and really knows the menu. I find this especially important because I have several food allergies and need to be careful with what I order. If you tell him what you like he offers you spot on suggestions with absolute confidence. I’ve been with a small group and on date nights and both are great options!
As always, wonderful food and service. Grab a reservation if you can.
We loved the crab appetizer which was new to us.
Good food and service. Not rushed despite having an early dinner reservation. Most enjoyable.
With its excellent food and friendly, helpful service, I highly recommend Rasika for Indian food - the tandoor salmon and meats are remarkably tender - it's the best we've ever had!
It never lets me down... I brought three new friends and they said the same the first I ate here "This is the best Indian food I have ever had".
Rasika is my favorite restaurant in DC. The food is stellar, and the servers always give wonderful recommendations. This visit was no exception.
Always fantastic; love this place! The food is consistently good, the service is always attentive without being intrusive, and the place looks nice.
For an indian restaurant, the veg food and Jain food options are very limited. The lack of ability to customize dishes per dietary restrictions was rather disappointing given the price point. The service and ambience are good. I have certainly had better Indian food. The presentation of the dishes was exceptional. The taste was ok. Overrated. Been there. Done that. Not again.
Wonderful experience .... food was great (as always) ... excellent recommendations ....
desert on the house for my birthday 😍
Our waiter was great and informed on all of the dishes, helping me find the right drink and suggesting appetizers and main dishes that paired well.
This is a place that has been on my “must list” for four years. As soon a I find out that I am going to DC, I book a table. The food is fantastic, the service is first class, and I am never disappointed.
raskia was a great experience! I had asked for specific seating and we got the perfect spot. Food was delicious.
Great dinner and a very knowledgeable server, Sarah.
I just love this place. You cannot bear it for fine Indian food.
Great restaurant and outstanding service. Very careful with allergies and gluten free options
Blackcod was cooked perfectly!
Great Indian Food in Penn Quarter. The fried spinach appetizer is outstanding. We also enjoyed the goat and tandoori chicken.
Best spot in DC
Rasika is one of our favorite restaurants for entertaining guests. The Indian fusion menu is very tasty and
not overly exotic and thus always pleases. The recommendations by the servers are always spot on. We are
delighted to be able to make reservations in advance, unlike at some other popular restaurants.
Love this place!
I asked for a red rose to my wife . Guess what? They were not able to provide a red rose for us .
This was the most amazing dining experience, from start to finish. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the service exceptional, and the food outstanding. Thank you!
The food was wonderfully fresh, flavorful and not nearly as oily as many other Indian restaurants.
I took some friends for a meal, one of whom had never had Indian food before, and he loved it.
We ordered the Cauliflower Bezule and another friend was still talking the next day about how he'd like to have more of it.
And the desserts were wonderful. The Gulab Jamun, Carrot Halwa and Kulfi were sublime: extremely tasty without being overly sweet.
If you like Indian food, you owe it to yourself to visit Rasika.
If you don't like Indian food, visit Rasika and you'll learn to like Indian food.
I can't keep track of how many times I have been to Rasika, but I can say that each and every time it has been fabulous! Service, food and ambiance -- all spectacular.
Need a special or nicer place for lunch, this is it. Of course the crispy spinach is not to be missed and I haven't found an entree that I haven't loved!
Rasika is an excellent "upscale" restaurant that is fine dining without being too expensive. The Palak Chaat is absolutely amazing and so is everything else. Definitely a great spot for a fancier bite to eat for a date or special occasion.
Overall a fantastic experience!!
The food is amazing, the service was good, only the waiter told us there would be a “break” between appetizers and entrees, where we were just sitting there waiting for more food. Shortly after it arrived, we all felt full-so maybe the break helped us realize how much food we had already eaten or our stomach was able to signal “no more food” resulting in no dessert or anything after.
Believe the hype! Outstanding food and service. Yum!
This was the best Indian food I’ve EVER had, and I lived in London for 2 1/2 years. Truly excellent in every way. Many thanks!
seated 20 min late. they offered a nice glass of champagne while we waited. food took a very long time. food tasting needs some variety added. same old dishes each time we come in. love the food but spice it up.
The food was delicious as usual and the service was attentive. We especially liked the Bhurani Gosht lamb dish and the Chicken Tikka Masala.
Best Indian food I’ve had ! Food was delicious and service was also great ! We had the crispy spinach , halibut curry, and lamb curry. All was phenomenal . There was a good amount of food for the price as well. The naan was also delicious . Drinks were also good I had a sparkling rose. I would come back and recommend this restaurant to anyone .
