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,...

In the Marina Bay area of Singapore we were looking for a decent meal. A tip from a contact at our hotel pointed us in the direction of Rakuzen. Arrived there the place was full up, which is always a good sign. We were asked if we minded to sit outside, which normally in Singapore humidity is not advisable but... More

Rakuzen is conveniently located in the mall opposite the Conrad Hotel. We sat outside - not much of a view other than the street but very pleasant nonetheless. The menu offers an extensive range of sushi and sashimi, and also has a picture of each item - ideal for us amateurs! The serving staff were very helpful in explaining the... More
