    Everything is so good.
  • Bon Appetit Magazine
    Yes, the palak chaat really is that good. Good enough that the crispy spinach-yogurt-chutney combo not only meets the hype but actually exceeds it. Read more

    You know this was consistently rated as the best resto in DC and for the life of me, I don't know why? It's good. Really good even but the best? Nope.

    Chicken tikka masala is great. Green tikka masala isn't awesome. Really overwhelming coriander flavor. Dal makhani is always the best side.

    Indian food doesn't get better than this - been so many times I've lost count. Palaak chaat is a must have.

    Some of the most amazing flavors I've ever had. The chef's tasting menu was a great choice. If you have 2 people, get both the vegetarian and non-vegetarian.

    Not very impressed with the place. The famous palak chat wasn't really what i expected. Too long wait for walk-ins so remember to book a table before hand.

    Of course palak chat, that's must have here. Minced lamb with saffron gigner and Indian spices. I heard it was even clinton'n (ex president) favorite.

    Ok so I have been complaining about lack of good Indian in DC. This plays blows away all the competition. The black cod is a delicious secret, as is Jan - best server ever!

    Chic, warm atmosphere and masterful dishes. "Rasika (‘flavors,’ in Sanskrit) is incredible, and likely the best Indian food in town." -Lonely Planet on TripExpert Read more

    One order, shared with a dinner date, of the North Indian palak chat, never seems like enough. Greens are flashed fried and laced with yogurt, tamarind chutney, onion and black salt. Read more

    The food is just as good as most good Indian restaurants, the price is twice what you normally pay.

    I've never had Indian food before and I never had the urge til now. Rasika is where it's at. Great ambiance, food and service. It's all about the crispy spinach and garlic naan. Amazing.

    This is Indian food elevated to a whole other level. Chicken Tikka Masala deliciously rich and flavor packed. Unlike any other restaurants version. P Chat: crispy spinach makes me want thirds!

    The Palak Chat like everyone says is heaven on your pallette. The entrée selection is limited but precisely made to perfection. We tried Chicken Tikka Masala and it was possibly the best we ever had.
