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

This was our second visit and this time we went there to celebrate a birthday with some friends. The food was average to good but the service was terrible. All of us were sick the next day and had symptoms that ranged from vomiting to diarrhea. I am not saying that this was from the food at Rakuichi as all... More

We went on wet Tuesday night for dinner. Though they were busy they gave us undivided attention as usual. As the fish had just come in that day we ordered the sashimi platter for 4. It was sublime, with individual portions for 4. The uni was super fresh with a generous portion in each bowl ( 1 each!) and so... More

We went to Rakuichi based on the good reviews we have read. We went to the branch at Oasia at Novena. Unfortunately, we had a poor time there. We ordered their rainbow set, sushi set and tempura rice meal. The sashimi was served first and of average taste, they forgot to bring the wasabi. We followed up and it was... More

There's nothing worse than eating sushi that taste a day old! At Rakuichi - it feels like fish is freshly caught and served. I don't even eat hamachi with soya sauce and wasabe here. The place is upbeat like most restaurants are at Dempsey Hill on weekend nights and can be quiet on weekday nights. It does feel a little... More

If you are in the neighbourhood, this is a great place for a light and quick lunch. Rakuichi is a well established Japanese restaurant that has an la carte menu plus a variety of sets each day for lunch as well as dinner. The lunchtime sets are great value. My favorite sushi set is the Rainbow Set. Each piece of... More

I was introduced to this restaurant by my church counsellor on this Tuesday. The dining hall is of reasonable size, and as we went there quite early, at 11:30 a.m., the restaurant was not that packed yet, and so it was quiet and ideal for us to chat. It only started getting busier later on at after 12:30 p.m. or... More
