Rasika is a terrific Indian restaurant with sumptuous options. Start w the Crispy Spinach which is a house special. We had Chicken Tika w an Eggplant and a cauliflower dish along w some garlic nan. Reservations are a must and there is valet parking.

Upscale, fine dining Indian restaurant with dishes to tantalize your taste buds! If you can score a reservation you are in for a treat! Service and quality are impeccable! Mandatory dishes are the palak chaat and avocado chaat!

By all mean give it a try if you can get a table. It is a popular place. This is not the average Indian restaurant that is fumed with Indian spices smell after your dining, But again, you have to pay for your naan is like dine at a Mexican restaurant and you have to pay for salsa and Chips....

I had dinner here during a conference. The food was excellent, an impressive variety of spices and flavors, although some of them were too hot for my taste. Service was also good. It was very crowded even during the week, so making a reservation is advisable.

Dined here recently for the 2nd time and was not disappointed. Helpful and playful service, if a tad slow, recommended excellent selections from a somewhat overwhelming menu. Dessert selections were a bit disappointing, but we were full and very satisfied regardless.

When eating here a few nights ago, I found the food and service up to par but wasn't extremely fond of the decor and general vibe of the restaurant. If you choose to go, strongly recommend the Krispy spinach salad and the naan bread.

Pleasant ambiance and friendly staff who will help you with recommendations for your dish. Had the highly touted Palak chaat "crispy spinach" as an appetizer which didn't disappoint. For the main course, ordered the tandoori chicken tikka with saffron rice & garlic naan. Perfect dinner outing and highly recommend you try it. Make reservations as even on a Tuesday night... More

Four of us dined there a couple of weeks ago, two of us are vegetarians. We ordered four of the veggie options- the dal was over salted, the paneer was just ok as was the bhindi dish, the mixed veg in gravy tasted as though it had come out of a can. We also tried out the highly touted crispy... More

There seem to be a couple of truly excellent dishes on the menu. The rest, I'd say you're better off saving your money and going to a hole in the wall joint! Standout dishes-- no surprise, the spinach chaat & the black cod. Will always come back and get these two dishes and that will be 5 stars!!! Veering away... More
