Rasika, which is derived from Sanskrit meaning "flavors,” is the award-winning modern Indian restaurant owned by Ashok Bajaj. Leading the kitchen is Group Executive Chef Vikram Sunderam, a 2012 nominee for Best Chef Mid-Atlantic from the James Beard Foundation. Rasika has consistently earned four stars in the coveted Dining Guide of The Washington Post, and is in the top tier of Washingtonian magazine’s annual “100 Best.” Esquire magazine named it among the country’s best new restaurants in 2008 and Food & Wine magazine also stated that Rasika is “One of the hottest restaurants in the world.” Rasika showcases authentic Indian fare prepared on the Tawa (griddle), Sigri (open barbeque), as well as Tandoori and regional dishes. The restaurant is also noted for its international wine list, innovative cocktails and intimate, plush dining room. For private dining, Rasika has an exclusive space that can seat up to 16 guests and a semi-private area for up to 28.

"We dined here for my father's 60th birthday at his request, since my mother usually refuses to eat Indian food. The food was fabulous from start to finish, especially the sev batata puri, the crispy spinach, and the duck entree. The wine we ordered was excellent, although the server was not as familiar with the liquors (whiskey) on the menu. The restaurant kindly brought a comped dessert (gulab jamun with ice cream) with a candle for my father, which was a really nice touch. The restaurant can get a little loud, and I have preferred sitting outdoors here in the past, but overall, you can't beat Rasika WE for a special occasion!"
