What Insiders Are Saying
One of the best options for both Indian and a fine dining experience in the city.
Great food, looked forward to returning here and wasn't disappointed.
Great Indian food and service - worth waiting 2 mths for our reservation
Everything about the dinner was great. I would definitely go back. Food was outstanding. The only negative comment is that they came by the table too many times asking if everything was ok. It made me feel like they were rushing us a bit.
The best Indian we have ever had. The flash fried spinach is a must have!
Always fantastic food and service at Rasika. One of the best dining experiences in the city without question. My wife and I are already looking forward to our next visit.
Awesome service and food!
Special family and friends
Always Outstanding. I go at least twice whenever I am in DC
I do not eat Indian dishes much but this was a great meal and restaurant. I cannot wait for my second visit.
Rasika is simply a phenomenal restaurant. Delicious food and impeccable service. We can't wait for our next visit.
Rasika is always phenomenal. The food is incredible and the service is impeccable. When friends visit from out of town, Rasika is always my top recommendation.
We celebrated my husbands birthday with the vegetarian feast and wine pairings. Absolutely delicious!!
As always amazing food and service
Just a very nice place and the food was a cut above other Indian restaurants in the area
Rasika, by far, is the most delicious Indian restaurant I know. I live in NYC, where it's more than easy to find outstanding cooking, but nothing really compares. I've tried many dishes over many visits, and there's not one that I wouldn't order again. In fact, the only challenge with Rasika is one, getting a reservation, and two, what and how many yummy dishes to order. The ambience is lovely, and the service is good.
Service was excellence
Ambiance was really nice, romantic
Food was good, however, all the curries do not come with rice, which is not typical for an indian restaurant. You have to purchase the rice separatley- this place is expensive, and although the food was good, it wasnt spectacular
Its a little expensive for the amount of food you get, but overall good service and ambiance
One of the best Indian restaurants in the country!
Valentine’s Day with my sweetheart of 46 years. Extremely enjoyable dining. Fabulous server in Aldi -attentive and charming. For fabulous -as always. Wine pairings spot on.
Rasika is reliably spectacular (we've eaten here before), and I don't use that word casually. Everything was absolutely wonderful, and I can't wait to try the things on the menu that I couldn't choose this time. The spinach appetizer is one of our all-time favorites. There are no wrong choices here, and nothing is mediocre. The only down-side is that you have to reserve well ahead, it's not a spur-of-the-moment dinner place. Still, it's so fabulous that looking forward to it is half the fun. I give it a triple A+!
Fantastic birthday dinner (as always!)
The food was excellent. Best Indian restaurant I've visited in the DMV.
I was very dissatisfied with Rasika. We had our reservation but still we had to wait 45 to 1 hour with small baby to get the table. and also Rasika did not provide High chair for the baby and Restroom did not have changing station.
Overall food was also not that good what we had paid for that.
I don’t think I have ever had such a bad experience with a restaurant before I came to Rasika. We had a 9pm reservation, for which we arrived at 8:55. However, we were not seated until 9:40pm. This is absolutely ridiculous customer service, as I’m not sure why we should ever have to wait that long with a reservation. Additionally, the food was of very low quality and made multiple in my party sick. We will not be back.
It was a delightful evening that awakened the Tate buds! Excellent food, service and ambiance!
Outstanding food as usual. The best Indian food ever, speaking as Indians.
Very attentive and knowledgeable server. Food was fresh and flavorful. Especially enjoyed the palak chaat and dal. Would highly recommend Rasika to others.
Great time had by all. The Staff delivered exemplary service & food is great. Love it!
Rasika was amazing! We loved coming here for a birthday celebration. The service was excellent, the food was incredible, and the overall experience was memorable. The chicken masala, Raan-e-Rasika (lamb) and naan are amazing. I would definitely recommend Rasika to friends and family!
Food was goof but portions were small and expensive. Excellent service.
Birthday but it was not acknowledged
The food and service are very good, but this place is ridiculously expensive. The prices charged for what you get, it's just not worth it. Unfortunately, this will be our last visit.
Rasika is not as good as it reputation suggests. The shrimp in the curry shrimp had absolutely no flavor, should have been cooked in the curry sauce to absorb some flavor. Some pieces of lamb in the lamb kozambhu dish were not heated all the way through. Sauce was flavorful. Nice atmosphere! Rasika is overpriced for the quality of the food!
We went to Rasika for my parent’s retirement celebration and wedding anniversary and everyone from the host, manager and the staff made the dining experience one we won’t forget. My parents wondered if I had connections for us to receive such exemplary service, which sadly I do not.
We were seated later than our reservation, but the manager made sure to comp our first round of drinks and sent a few appetizers to the table. The wait was worth it. I would recommend the red snapper and the green curry. The desserts were amazing (**date toffee cake) (complimentary), which were the icing on the cake. The atmosphere and interior is upscale but comfortable. The service made us feel special and made the night perfect for my parents, for which I am extremely grateful. Definitely going to be my go to Indian restaurant in the city.
This restaurant never fails to disappoint. The food and wine were exceptional and the service fantastic. Best Indian food - by a long shot - that my friends and I have ever had.
The best restaurant in Washington D.C. !! The eggplant, spicy potato and peanut sauce appetizer is superb ; the black cod entree is sublime; and the glazed apple cake with cardamon ice cream desert is to die for ! Run, don't walk, to this outstanding culinary experience !!
Raskia is my favorite restaurant and it never disappoints. This was my date's first meal at Raskia and it was perfect from start to finish. Our server made excellent recommendations from start to finish, including wine and cocktails. He apologized for seating us almost 30 minutes later than our reservation by presenting us with a lovely complementary first course that was brought out immediately. Our meal and service was exemplary and we're already planning to return with friends.
Great! The service was exceptional and the food was unreal. With the understanding that the restaurant was on the pricey side, at the end, it was well worth it.
Excellent all around- the ambience was romantic, the food was outstanding (everything we ordered was great, no complaints on any of the food), and our waiter was also excellent, one of the best Ive ever had. He explained dishes on the menu and pointed us to popular items
Excellent as usual!!! I will ne back as soon as possible, and will be recommending the restaurant to colleagues from out of town.
My husband and I had a great time on my birthday, and especially devoured the seekh kebab drizzled with truffle oil--our all time favorite. My recommendation would be to expand your by the glass wine list. I would really like to pair my food with a nice Malbec to be precise. Kudos to the chef and the team!
