You will get what you pay for.

Their menu is not cheap, not when you can find food for more than one third the price in Singapore. But for a Japanese restaurant in Dempsey, it's reasonable. My family likes this place, and we visit every so often because, like the title implies, the food is good. There is a lot of competition... read more

After reading a few reviews here, we went to Rakuichi expecting yummy japanese food. It was I think my most disappointing culinary experience in Singapore! I called earlier in the day to make a reservation and was told that they were fully booked. We decided to try a walk in. We got there and they seated us immediately. I expected... More

I never come out of Rakuichi disappointed. The food looks good and tastes good - those sushi pieces seared were my favorite anytime. The dining room is small but the table is comfortably big for a family of 4. Located at Dempsey, I love it for its bucolic feel and ample parking place that is also free ( rare near... More

It is hard to find bad food in Singapore, and even harder to find bad Japanese food. But if you want to find it, come here. Desultory waitstaff. A starter made from tinned tuna. Unagi cooked to mush. We were happy to have only ordered a few things to start and even happier to be out of here.

The set-up was nice, warm and comfy. You can opt for aircon or non-aircon, and there is a smoking area too. The lighting was dim but just enough for you to appreciate the food served and at the same time, gave us the romantic atmosphere. The staff was very attentive. She knows what we need before we even call her.... More

I was hanging out at Dempsey area that day, and in the mood for some Japanese fare, hence Rakuichi Japanese Restaurant came into my mind. A beautiful Japanese restaurant decorated in rich modernistic meets authentic Japanese design, this restaurant nestles behind some thick canopy, hence giving it a very "in nature" feel; and we were seated alfresco since inside was...

Service was good and a very nice restaurant on the whole. I have not tried Japanese food before and was not disappointed at all. I went for the set menu for about $48 SGD so I could sample a few things in one go. Dempsey on the whole is the place to go if you wish for plenty of choice... More

A business lunch that was very reasonably priced ($28), yummy sushi. Crispy delicate tempura, and wickedly good miso, but the standout was the puffer fish - thin strips caramelised perfectly. A real treat!

Our family love coming here, usually for lunch. The lunch sets are great value and the food is very fresh. The aburi sushi platter is a favorite, but their tempura, grilled meats and sea food are all of very good quality. The service has always been very efficient. The atmosphere is also quiet, we've not seen too many noisy children... More
