Superb experience on every level. The entire staff was gracious and professional, the décor pleasing, but a special shout out goes to our server, Bo. We turned the show over to him and gave him our trust. He asked us a few simple questions about our preferences and hunger level, then he proceeded to assemble what amounted to a tour... More

Upscale sleek modern restaurant specializing in East Asian Indian cuisine with a gourmet feel. Great ambiance ideal for couples, date night, business travelers and tourists. Food was very good but my absolute favorite Indian restaurant is in Amsterdam, so I am biased a bit. Concurrent with other reviews, the crunchy spinach w/ yogurt appetizer is awesome! I also loved the... More

We ate at the bar (otherwise, one needs to book weeks ahead), which was pleasant and and not too loud. The food is excellent, the staff very friendly. A wonderful meal!

I love surprises and the ambiance was very uplifting and modern. Never had I had Indian food in such surroundings. The waiters were great and the food... excellent and modern, perfect for my european palate. Usually the food is too spicy, but this was exactly my measure. Unfortunately, I ate too much naan bread with my palak chaat and the... More

This was my first time ever at an Indian restaurant -- and I must say it was excellent. Must order the palakachaat and the chicken Tika masala. Also the cod was excellent

Indian cuisine is rather specific. We visited Rasika and tried many foods but many are tasted almost the same because of similar hot spices...We did not like their Indian coktails at all, sorry - much prefer standard American cocktails which were NOT offered. And we did not like desserts...One great thing though - service was FANTASTIC. Unfortunately, next day we... More

The food was lovely and all the ingredients were fresh as possible. The expert blending of spices for the meat, seafood and vegetarian offerings is perfection. I took my husband to brunch on Sunday and I expect I will return again. The ambiance is warm and the waitstaff are attentive without being intrusive. Yum!

The food is scrumptious. Some of the best Indian food ever. But the restaurant is way too noisy, to the point where you can barely hold a conversation. And our server was not knowledgeable. She could not answer any of our questions about the food choices. For example, when asked about nuts in the dishes, she did not know the... More
