Indian food in DC Metro on Kojo today

Kojo from NPR did an hour on Indian food today. They recommended a bunch of places. What do you all think about them? I have yet to find outstanding Indian in the DC area but I know that it has to be here somewhere. Not on the list was also a southern place called Woodwards in Alexandria that a caller suggested. Any comments? Here is the link to the restaurant map (It includes the Korean restaurants from last weeks call as well).

    Of the Indian restaurants on the list, I really like Passage to India, which IMHO, is consistently excellent. I've yet to try Rasika, which I've heard is very good, but is not traditional Indian. I guess it could be considered modern Indian or Indian fusion.

      First of all, I love Kojo.

      I absolutely adore Rasika - so much so that I even had my rehearsal dinner there. Some magazines have called it one of the best restaurants in the country, I think. Don't forget to order the palak chaat.

      (I know you didn't ask about it, but I couldn't ignore the Korean flags next to all the Korean restaurants. So I'll make it quick. As a Korean myself, I can vouch for Shilla Bakery, Vit Goel Tofu, Honey Pig BBQ, Oegadgib, BonChon Chicken, Yechon, and Hangang Restaurant. This is a pretty good list.)

        Cool Thanks! I have tried a bunch of the Korean places you mentioned. I also love Gamasot. About Rasika I thought that was more Indian/American fusion. Am I mistaken?

          Like Gigi said, Rasika is definitely not traditional. I'd lean more towards modern more than fusion, I think.
