The food is good, great fish curry but the staff as no manners, specially the concierge whom is a teenager with no idea how to talk to customers. The rest of the staff was more concerned in having a laugh behind the bar than making sure that customers feel welcome. The bartender was the only member of the staff that was very professional and available.

The best indian food ever!!

The appetizer list is impressive and very creative, taking Indian flavors and using them in a new, non-traditional way. Great for all those who love Indian food and also for vegetarians, by the way, lots of vegetarian dishes. Overpriced, but that's the neighborhood it's in. The decor is a little tacky, but it's a nice atmosphere for a date.

I don't usually write reviews. My daughter recommended this restaurant so we decided to visit today while celebrating family visiting the area. But, after visiting Rasika's for lunch today, I returned home and noticed I had left this webpage open so looked at other reviews to see how they compared with our experience.. Bottom line, this is a very nice restaurant to take special guests. The food was very well prepared with subtle blend of flavors. We like to share dishes family style and had wonderful fish, chicken, lamb and vegetarian dishes. The bread was an excellent item including one cooked with onions and peppers. Cumin, mint, yogurt, pepper - all the other special ingredients one expects in Indian food but often finds either overpowering or just missing in weaker restaurants. Wish I could recall the names of the dishes but daughter ordered and I just enjoyed eating and family. The door greeter instantly saw we had a newborn baby and offered us one of the two tables up near window that offered bench type seat for the infant carrier which was very nice as baby later decided it wanted Mom to feed her. Such quick thinking also put the baby in one area away from most other customers - just in case baby decided to cry is my guess. The young lady who took our order and helped us was professional while also friendly. Excellent service Our total bill was about 135.00 for five for lunch including tea and cola and generous tip. Excellent value for the food and service. I noticed some kind of hot food cooking area in rear of restaurant where a chef was cooking for people sitting at that food bar and the very comfortable exchange between the chef and the six customers showed they were enjoying his skills and food. Will want to explore that in some future visit without infant. I would return to Rasika's again and recommend them.

I was visiting DC for the weekend and my friends there wanted to get some Indian food. None of us had been to Rasika it was a fantastic meal. The food was great the wine was good the crowd/atmosphere was nice! We had three appetizers- all excellent (eggplant, palak chaat, and seehk kabob) and then five entrees- all excellent (chicken makani, roganjosh, eggplant, dal makani, and masala shrimp- sorry about spelling errors). There were 7 of us, with all that food (including breads, yogart, and rices) and three bottles of wine, we paid $75 each- not bad to me! I highly recommend checking this place out!!

Greeters at the door should be more pleasant rather than looking exhausted! Atmoshere is okay, nothing to write home about. Food is poor to average, great way to fool and rip off the washington DC crowd. Indique is a far superior restuarant with a superior menu rather than the make believe fusion foolishness. Food is pricey and lacks the tasteful quality. Service lacks quality and there is too much confusion and interference from the host desk. Too much micro management.
