It is such a pity that the waitresses are completely disinterested in seating or serving you, because when you perservere the end results are great. The stand out dish for me was the scallop sashimi, as well as the more main stream tuna sashimi. I wasn't personally convinced by the fatty salmon, which was just personal taste rather than a...

The food came at completely different times, so one guest got all his right away but had to wait for the others food to arrive 20 min later. All three guests ordered separately, but we all had one maki bite in common, the Dragon Roll. Two of the rolls look great, but the meat in the third was brown and... More

We ate here because close to Conrad Hilton and looked authentic. The waitresses were half asleep and got our orders wrong. Food was OK but experience brought it down. Wouldn't recommend so many other great places nearby.

We visited on a weekday evening at my husbands suggestion as he'd been before and enjoyed it. We sat outside on a lovely balmy evening and had a selection of sashimi followed by some grilled dishes. All were delicious, the only drawback being the waiting staff who were slow in bringing drinks and taking orders. They were busy and looked... More

Each time we're in Singapore we make a beeline for Rakuzen. Staying at the Conrad (next door) certainly makes it convenient. The service is efficient and friendly. The food is great value for money, the Rakuzen specials and side dishes are all great value, especially compared to Australian Japanese restaurants. We've had many lunches and dinners and have yet to... More

Visited this location almost 2 years ago and found it great so decided to return. Shockingly, the new menu was so alike Sushi Tei that i could find 80% similarity of items. Once again i decided to try the Saikoro Steak Yasai Itame (Diced beef steak with pan fried vegetables). To my disappointment, the beef cubes were overcooked and the... More

Excellent freshness of sashimi at reasonable price. I recommend this restaurant for family as the broad choice of the menu could adjust any taste. My child doesn't eat raw fish but found lots of alternatives dishes. Well done Rakuzen!

Decent sushi at reasonable prices. This place is definitely good value. But the service staff needs more training. After being seated for quite some time, no one approached our table. And it was quite difficult to flag someone down to take our order. I ordered a bottle of wine, but it never came. I had to flag another server down... More

Went here twice in two days after a recommendation from a friend. This multinational chain has a very extensive menu of Japanese food, from yakitori to sushi to tempura to katsu etc. I tried the torched fatty belly fish selection and the fatty tuna/fatty swordfish/fatty salmon plates, and they were among the best I have eaten anywhere in the world,...
