Excellent food. Very busy, reservation definitely required. Tables were a bit crowded, small table right next to other small tables. The food was fantastic, best Indian food on the East Coast, if not the entire hemisphere. I highly recommend getting the Palak Chaat (fried spinach)...More

I had Palaak Chaat, which was delicious and my companion had salmon, which was also great! The pappadums and hummus were great, but, my favorite was the crispy spinach on the Appetizer menu.

This is definitely one of the worst restaurant I had ever been in. First of all, there is hardly any space/seats for people who are waiting to get a table. The lighting and ambience in this restaurant is very poor! The food was very average,...More

I had not been to the original Rasika for years, and was looking forward to a birthday lunch with family. I was salivating for the fried spinach appetizer, and it was as excellent as I remembered. The spinach must be flash fried, for it is...More
