Good quality japanese cuisine

This was the first Rakuzen as far as I could remember, before it sprouted a chain of Rakuzen everywhere else. The decor has remained unchanged and offers a more rustic feel for diners comared to the newer outlets. Seating capacity is limited on the ground floor as it is shared with the kitchen... read more

There were a few Japanese restaurants in the area but Rakuzen stood out quite well. As soon as we stepped inside we could feel the atmosphere of a cozy hideout serving Japanese cuisine as everyone was either busy eating away or chatting & waiting for their food. Tables on the ground floor were almost full and we were ushered upstairs... More

I have been in several japanese restaurants all over the world - RAKUZEN is far the best I've ever joined! Typical japanese interiour with seperate dining rooms if you're in a group - hundreds of Sake and Sushi/Sashimi types, incredible fresh and delicious! Of course it's not a cheap place to go to but it was worth every single MYR.... More

Four of us dropped in here for a a last minute evening meal as our plans to travel further afield had been scuppered. When we arrived you could tell it was good as it was crowded & they only just managed to fit us in. Menu choice was good & the meal very tasty with very generous portions. I will... More

out of all the Rakuzen Restaurants, the Subang Jaya branch is the best. The menu is extensive and although the price is not tha excessive, the seafood is fresh, the portions generous. The quality is the same if not better than most hotel Japanese restaurants. The menu is also very friendly towards children and the more 'asian' taste. We have... More

I would recommend this restaurant if you are seeking authentic Japanese food, not the fusion types. Prices are very competitive and affordable, service is attentive, decor is lovely and ambience is cosy. That sums it up.

Rakuzen used to be my go-to place for Japanese food. I loved the taste of soba and soft shelled crab they served there. However, recently the quality of food they serve went levels down. The oil they used to fry was old and reused to the point I could feel the aftertaste of the oil all day. The sweet potato... More

My first choice of where to go for Japanese food will be Rakuzen because I can safely say their food standard is equally the same in all outlets which is Good, because they practice a high standard in food quality, presentation and service. My favorite branch of Rakuzen will be at Publika and Oasis Ara Damansara. Simply because these 2... More

We had a birthday do here and although it was crowded & full house, the staff & Supervisor were fast & courteous in recommendation. We ordered one 20 % discount promotion Omakase which would normally priced at RM 200.00. It has Wagyu beef, assorted sashimi, clam soup, chawan mushi & a few other dishes combined. Although its for one person,... More
