Good food!

I've been coming to this outlet for years! As it is a chain restaurant, you would expect the quality to not be so good, but it's far from that! They have many outlets all over Klang Valley, but the one in SS15 would be the first few which opened. In my opinion, the best dish here is the Tenzaru... read more

I have been to several Japanese outlets in the Klang Valley. I find Rakuzen in Empire shopping mall the best. The ambiance is pleasant , service is above average and the food preparations are much tastier. If I have to go to a Japanese restaurant I would prefer Rakuzen at Empire Shopping Mall.

We always like to visit this Rakuzen chain of restaurants for its wide selections of Japanese food and its quality. The restaurant's atmosphere is cozy and enjoyable. Staff are help and provide excellent service.

Visited this restaurant in Plaza Damas recently. We have been to another Rakuzen outlet at Empire Shopping Mall in Subang. Both outlets appeared quite busy and as a result the service was a tad slow for my liking. The waiters too don't seemed skilled enough to offer us some suggestions with confidence. We had some sushi and tempura dishes and... More

We visit this restaurant almost once a month and for every visit, the restaurant never failed us. They still maintain the good food quality and taste great! The ambient was nice and we enjoyed dining here. Worth coming back again.

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 & bar counter but more are available... 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
