Pricey, but expected for location in China Town, DC. Really great Indian food, excellent service. Tasting menu ran $160 or so, not including tip, for a 6-course meal. Wife and I could have shared and would have had plenty to eat, but the leftovers the next day were enough to feed us again for lunch.
Incredible food and amazing service. Never disappoints!
this place is very good for special occasions, the food here is excellent
Three of us shared two 6-course dinners, starting at 5 pm and ending 2 1/2 hours later in time for our show next door at Woolly Mammoth. Everything was absolutely exquisite. It was a splurge, to be sure, but well worth it. Every dish was beautiful, delicious, served at just the right moment and with style. Really an unforgettable evening.
We came here on the recommendation of our in-laws. It was a great experience! Our waiter was exceptionally friendly & gave great recommendations on dishes. He recommended the fried spinach, grouper, spicy cubed lamb, and Tikka Masala. We ordered the fried spinach, lamb, and dover sole, bread basket and a couple drinks. Everything was delicious & very flavorful. The lamb was tender & flavorful, but too salty. The dover sole was delicious. The fried spinach was amazing & I wish more Indian restaurants offered it. Rasika's menu listed many dishes not available at most Indian restaurants, which made it all the more special. They had the usual dishes like Tikka Masala, Biryani, Naan, Chaat, but there were many more dishes that I didn't recognize & cannot name. Because I knew that I wouldn't be able to come back to Rasika anytime soon & thoroughly enjoyed the food, I ordered the Tikka Masala to-go. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was excellent. especially that crispy spinach appetizer and chicken green masala, that sauce was absolutely amazing!! Tandoori Salmon was just right. cooked to perfection.
Enjoyed dinner. good service.
Every dish was amazingly good. Server made great recommendations. We will go again.
Amazing!! Everything from the food to service was the absolute best. Will definitely be back
Great! Wonderful Valentines Day lunch
The food and service were great.
Still one of my favorite restaurants... Authentic indian food is hard to find
Birthday Lunch with friends.
Had a fantastic first experience at Rasika- after all of the great things friends and family had said about the place, my boyfriend and I chose to celebrate my bonus and his raise at Rasika! We got the 4-course tasting menu which was absolutely fabulous and enjoyed the great service, incredible food, and fine atmosphere.
Amazing! We had the 6 course tasting menu with wine pairings and had enough leftover for lunch the next day. Wonderful experience and great food!
Rasika is a beautiful, high-end restaurant with delicious Indian cuisine. My wife and I went for Valentine's dinner (though a few days before actual Valentine's Day since reservations were hard to come by) and the food was fantastic. They have reasonable valet rates as well.
The palak chaat and cardamon ice cream itself was worth the price. Although the meat portions were small, the lamb meat was perfectly tender. I didn't see the lassi on the menu but thankfully the waitress said she could the sweet lassi and mango lassi for us. Great date with equally good food. Thank you for your service.
Great service. Excellent food. Biriyani, dal makhni and reshimi kabab were Awesome. Flavors were excellent. Biriyani and reshmi kabab... I think, the best I had in near times. Server, Kathryn had a good knowledge of the Menu and the food there. She had answers to all our questions. Nice place to dine. Will be there again.
Amazing as always - food and warm service! Our server was very courteous and added to the experience.
The flash fried spinach is always a draw. The service was superb, as always. We dined late but had a reservation. The lamb biryani was not as good as it has been in the past. Tasted as if it had been burned on the bottom- not to be confused with the spice, which I’ve had a number of times before. It was a bit grainy in texture , not nearly as good as in the past. Also the cocktail list seemed limited and less creative than past visits. Maybe we should try the new location. Service, however, was excellent- especially for late night dining.
Great food, great experience, food for every kind of diet restriction. This restaurant should be a model other’s operate based on
The lamb with mace and rose petal was stunning, as was the okra with mango powder!
I love this place. The food and customer service is top notch.
Excellent waitstaff and love the valet service.
Novel and delicious recipes.
There were four of us for a birthday celebration and pre-theater dinner. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. It was quite a lovely evening.
Only the best Indian food I’ve ever had! Love this place!
Rasika was great, AS ALWAYS!!! For the first time I had their lentils the other day...smashing! Can't wait to have them again. I adore this restaurant.
Terrific food but poor service. We waited 25 minutes to be seated after our reservation time and after that the service was inconsistent. We had naan and palakchaat to start; both were stellar. My chicken biranyi was wonderful.
Best indian food in and around DC.. been there a couple of times but never disappointed..
Great Dinner Experience with my date. This was my date’s first experience trying Indian cuisine. We absolutely enjoyed our appetizers (Palak Chaat and the Crab). For dinner, we had the chicken biryani and chicken masala. Both dishes were delicious. The ambiance and service was A++++
