Blogger Reviews of Rasika Restaurant

  • Mother Daughter Foodie Adventures on Aug 09, 2013

    Its no secret that if you want great Indian cuisine in DC Rasika is the place to go. Ive heard the buzz but had not yet given it a try. Reservations are necessary...

  • DC Suburbia on Aug 01, 2013

    Sometimes Indian food has had the misfortune of becoming nothing more than an amalgamation of ingredients for the purported benefit of the colonial interlopers that plagued that continent over the years...

  • Been There Eaten That on Jun 12, 2013

    Rasika is ranked #9 on Washingtonians 100 Very Best Restaurants 2011. Still, I am a little anxious about the food and the experience living up to my expectations and memories of previous visits...

  • John B.Must order the Palak Chaat and the Lamb Chops!

    55555 by John B.


  • Justin GWe were new to Indian food. Our waiter took time to explain the menu and suggest some great dishes. Palak Chaat for the starter was perfect. Chicken Tikka Masala and Halibut Curry as well.

    55555 by Justin G


  • MAQ ABest in town .. Must try while in DC

    55555 by MAQ A


  • Lamar ZThe flash fried spinach is simply wonderful.

    55555 by Lamar Z


  • EaterChef Vikram Sunderam mans the kitchen at the Penn Quarter restaurant, where he takes a modern look at traditional Indian fare with favorites like the crispy palak chaat, flavorful curries and more.

    55555 by Eater


  • Michael G.The Four-Course Tasting Menu with wine pairings is great, but come hungry! Or prepare to leave with a doggie-bag...

    55555 by Michael G.

    55555 by Ian


  • Margie w.Everything is so good.

    55555 by Margie w.


  • Bon Appetit MagazineYes, 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.

    55555 by Bon Appetit Magazine

  • Michael MChicken tikka madala

    55555 by Michael M


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

    55555 by Maha Al-Tamimi


  • Zac M.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.

    55555 by Zac M.


  • Robin EThe service is excellent and the lamb is awesome!

    55555 by Robin E


  • Lakshmi S.Interesting flavors

    55555 by Lakshmi S.


  • Parth A.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.

    55555 by Parth A.


  • TJ V.Chat spinach OMG

    55555 by TJ V.


  • Pulkit DOf 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.

    55555 by Pulkit D


  • Michael CoxOk 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!

    55555 by Michael Cox


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

    55555 by DenDo Z


  • Lola YorkDelicious place! Truffle nan! Yumm! Lemon cashew rice and my lamb dish was amazing! A nice twist to the common Indian menu!! Love it! I live in NY and would love to go back!!

    55555 by Lola York


  • Washington PostOne 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.

    55555 by Washington Post


  • Raixa MSnapper, lamb, appetizers

    55555 by Raixa M


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

    55555 by Jacobo Gómez


  • Sari G.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.

  • Dina RughaniThe crispy spinach chat is a must. Everything here was delicious

    55555 by Dina Rughani

    55555 by Parvathy Nair

  • Udiksha FWorst veg food ever

    22222 by Udiksha F


  • Varun S.Wouldn't normally think about dessert at an Indian place. But finish your excellent meal with the date toffee cake, gulab jamun, and kulfi.

    55555 by Varun S.


  • Varun S.Wow. Everything here is delicious. Standouts include the palak chaat (it's a spinach dish), raghda patties (potato), and lamb curry. Odd but delicious: goat cheese kulcha.

    55555 by Varun S.


  • Karim B.The lamb. OMG, THE LAMB 🙌

    55555 by Karim B.


  • Chris BellFor the perfect meal for 2; order a chaat to start, 3 vegetable side dishes, rice and a roti. The dal is highly recommended.

    55555 by Chris Bell

  • Leora K.order as much truffle naan as you can get your hands on.

    55555 by Leora K.


  • Thomas R.If you can't decide for one of the vegetarian dishes, they prepare two half portions for you.

    55555 by Thomas R.


  • Washington PostRasika in Penn Quarter could easily rest on its considerable laurels, but instead improves on what it does by every year adding fresh reasons to drop in.

    55555 by Washington Post


  • Adelaja O.I wasn't impressed. At all. The lamb could have been regular beef, and it was kinda soggy, which means it wasn't fresh.

    33333 by Adelaja O.


  • LoriPAIf you don't have a reservation, arrive before 6pm & try to sit at the chef's table or, failing that, the lounge. The pre-theatre dinner has many of the favorites, including palak chaat & is a steal.

    55555 by LoriPA

    55555 by Travis G


  • April S.As others have said, the Palak Chaat is no joke. The Raan-E_Rasika was delicious: very tender, lots of meat, and the sauce you wanted to sop up with the naan. Another delicious dining experience
