My wife and I had our first visit to Rasika in mid-February. Plan on a 6-week wait for good weekend reservations, but it was worth it. We had inventive drinks at the bar before being seated at one of the windows on D Street, N.W....More

Rasika lives up to it's high rating. Terrific food served in a nice atmosphere. My salmon had an amazing combination of flavors that included just a hint of cinnamon. It was divine. Of course, the fried spinach is a house specialty and deservingly gets raves...More

We had a wonderful time at Rasika, which we have been wanting to visit for quite a while and had made reservations a couple of months ago. It was worth the wait. Although this was bit different than some of the possibly more authentic Indian...More
