If you like indian food I would suggest this place when in Washington! You will certainly have to make a reservation since it is very full. The food was very very good and the service was great!

Rasika and Rasika West End are the best Indian food restaurants in DC. I like the West End location more because it's more casual and has a younger vibe to it. The food is so good. The palik chaat, chicken tikki masala and lamb biryani...More

The majority of Indian Restaurants in DC are "curry houses" where you can get a decent, but unremarkable meal for a good price. Rasika ups the game with a clever options of high end plates and refined version of street food. I would recommend to...More

Modern décor. Efficient and helpful service. Besides being authentic, the food is one of the most refined Indian we’ve had. In particular, the Palak Chaat (crispy baby spinach) and the Black Cod entrée are not be missed. The alcohol list is on the short side.

Everything we had was simply amazing, and the palak chaat appetizer was especially tasty. Our server was very attentive. We are glad we chose this place for our anniversary dinner.

As a family with nut allergies, we have always avoided Asian restaurants. Until we found Rasika. I contacted the staff a few weeks prior to my visit to ask if they can guarantee nut free food, including possible cross contamination. I didn't expect them to,...More

I have never been to a Indian restaurant, where I truly didn't feel welcome and couldn't wait to leave asap. For a 8:15 PM reservation, we got the table at 8:40 PM. While waiting, I asked the hostess to check on our table, and she...More
