Now better than Rasika proper, the home base. Get the spinach chat, the aloo tikki, the sev puri, the scallop appetizer, the lamb chop tandoori, the cod dish with two flavors, the duck curry with coconut milk, and the dark lentils for an excellent meal. The other dishes are generally good but not as good as those. Not cheap, but one of the better meals in town these days.
