Took a while to get in but it was worth it. Has the cauliflower Bezul (very very nice) and the Duck Vindaloo (pretty good). This really is a very good indian restaurant.

Rasika is the best. The food is always fresh, full of flavor, interesting, and beautifully presented. The service is the best; the Manager & serving people are attentive and knowledgeable. Asking only for "a wonderful red," I had a great wine, too.

Our second trip to Rasika and Wow!! Service is impeccable and friendly and the food is just perfectly delicious. The Palak Chat is out of this world and the chicken Tikka masala (you won't want to share).

Worth the wait, worth sitting at a tiny table if that's all that's available (as in our case), worth taking your chances and sitting in the lounge/bar, worth waiting months for! We lucked out and were able to walk in and be seated. Yes, order that crispy spinach; there's a reason it's so popular. We also had the chicken tikka... More

We were promptly seated at our reserved time, which is always a nice way to start the evening. The place was busy, but we were still able to enjoy quiet conversation - and ogle various dishes as they were delivered to other tables as we perused the menu. Our server was polite and helpful (making recommendations), yet gave us time... More

One of my best overall dining experiences in a long time. The staff is kind and helpful - nothing snooty if you simply don't know what something is - and their recommendations are great. The atmosphere is very nice. It's lively but not too loud. Overall, a first-rate experience.
