Generally, lamb is not one of my favorites but their lamb is definitely delicious! For those who crave for spicy, request for their special hot sauce- it tastes great on anything. Their chicken tikka masala is tangy and is perfectly paired with naan. The place is really busy, considering we went on a Wednesday, but the waiter tries to keep up. The long wait is definitely worth it- we had to put our reservations in 2 months prior to the occasion. Best Indian restaurant I’ve been to- Indians would attest to that! We would definitely be back!!!

Excellent experience! We heard great recommendations and it definitely lived up to expectations. We had the pre-theater menu with the sev puri and palaak chaat appetizers and a vegetarian thali-style entree. The famous palaak chaat was a must-eat dish! The service was great, there were plenty of vegetarian dishes, and the ambiance was lovely. Can’t recommend this highly enough!

A group of four girlfriends had been wanting to go to Rasika (Penn Quarter) for a dinner outing. We were able to make a reservation for Monday, MLK Holiday weekend Monday (January 15th). We had a relaxing, lovely evening together. Our waiter, Joseph, was most helpful with the dishes we inquired about.

We will definitely go back, and also now want to try the West End location for their brunch.

Joseph was incredibly helpful and accommodating to our party’s dietary needS. He also offered great suggestions and was funny and charming throughout. Great dinner in the private dining room with family and friends.
