Palak Chaat: crispy spinach
- + abs +
Best Indian food in DC, Chef Vikram is amazing as well as owner Ashok Bajaj. Sexiest restaurant also. -Tamesha Warren, Top Chef
You have to try the Palak Chaat. Crispy spinach / sweet yoghurt / tamarind / date chutney.
- Line Storgaard-Conley
There is a reason why Washingtonians talk so highly of the palak chaat — flash-fried spinach — the standout appetizer at this much-beloved Indian restaurant. Try it. You'll thank us.

Easily the area’s best Indian restaurant and unlike any other in the crowded field. What to get: Ragda patties, potato cakes with tamarind-date-and-mint chutney; avocado and banana with date chutney.

4 stars in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. Tom recommends the baked cabbage dumplings. http://wapo.st/qBcG1C

Get the spinach. Trust me. It's actually that good.
- Michael Miller
The palak chaat - crispy spinach - is highly recommended by nearly everyone who's ordered it. Ever tried truffled naan? Now's the time.
- The Daily Meal
Crispy spinach, and the shrimp curry. DO IT.
- Jenn Ettinger
Chic, warm atmosphere and masterful dishes. "Rasika (‘flavors,’ in Sanskrit) is incredible, and likely the best Indian food in town." -Lonely Planet on TripExpert
Wouldn't normally think about dessert at an Indian place. But finish your excellent meal with the date toffee cake, gulab jamun, and kulfi.
- Varun Shetty
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.
Must get the Palak Chaat and save room for the Date & Toffee pudding!
- Frank Rimalovski
Rasika's sev batata puri is the real deal. The crispy little rounds of bread are topped with potato, sour raw mango and crunchy threads of fried chickpea batter.
Hip space, the very best Indian food in DC. The Palak Chaat is a must, but really can't go wrong with any dish. Plan ahead, reservations are difficult to get. Or show up with your fingers crossed.

- Phil B
For the perfect meal for 2; order a chaat to start, 3 vegetable side dishes, rice and a roti. The dal is highly recommended.
- Chris Bell
Do not pass GO! without having the lamb chops. Amazing.
