Rasika's remarkably flavorful and creative dishes offer enormous variety and consist excellence. The service is friendly and un-rushed and the atmosphere is pleasant. We've been coming for many years and never seen a table empty for longer than it takes to re-set but somehow the noise level remains restrained allowing for normal conversation. Rasika provides one of the most dependably enjoyable dining experiences in the Washington area.

Friends from out of town often want something unique to Washington. A member of this group works as hard as she can to maintain a vegetarian diet in a world of steak eaters (including her family) so I was really quite happy to secure scarce reservations to this amazing restaurant. Compounded by the other visitor who is very allergic to raw onion/scallions. The staff was incredibly helpful in guiding us through the menu and the waitress was diligent in ensuring that no raw onions surfaced on anything we ate; she helped identify the items which normally had no onions and helped ensure the items which came that way were not garnished with them. She was amazing. Speaking of amazing, the food was flavorful, artfully arranged, and enticing. Thank you Rasika for showing my friends one reason why I love living (and eating) in DC.

This place always does it well! There were so many fine choices that, when our waiter came, we were unsure. He recommended, explained how dishes were prepared, advised on the spice/heat levels, made suggestions for our consideration and was generally helpful and patient. Every dish was excellent, cocktails and wine were ‘spot on’ and dessert and coffee made the perfect finish! We will be back again soon!
