Wide range of delicious Japanese dishes

This restaurant has a wide range of delicious and affordable Japanese dishes. They have a lovely decor and different types of table settings. The smaller tables (for two) are semi-private little booths and very romantic. Service was quick and decent. The sushi was delicious, as was the set dinners... read more

We are regulars at both the Publika and Damas branch. So far, food and service have been consistently good. Publika branch has slightly faster service though. Pretty good sashimi and sake maki. Their rolls are good too especially the soft shell crab and dragon roll. Beef teppanyaki so so (could be more tender but decent for the price you pay).... More

It's the go to when I need Japanese food...not necessarily the best in KL as there are more and more authentic Japanese places coming up. It's definitely amongst the more affordable spots

I love sushi and this particular branch of Rakuzen is my favourite establishment, both for its truly delicious sushi and attentive wait staff which makes for a wonderful experience. It is value for money, two thumbs up!

Rakuzen has several outlets in KL, what makes it stand out to me is the quality of its sashimi at a price point few can match for the level of quality they provide. It is not cheap a standard meal for two would cost RM 50 to RM 90 depending on what you order, but I have never left the... More

We took grilled beef bento,steak bento and the chicken fillet japanese curry bento. We ski[[ed breakfast,so we were very hungry..at the end,We were really full! The waitress gave my dads' order to...

The good part: fresh sashimi, nice ambiance, service is good they keep refilling our green tea and the staff is helpful with the menu. The not so great part: a lot of menu contains alcohol (we are muslim consumer) including all sushi and many grilled fish. So not so much choices for us. Slightly expensive than other japanese restaurant but... More

Am surprise to read amused review of Rakuzen on this thread. It seems like reviewers are not bothered going on the right thread before penning their reviews. Hartamas Shopping Centre / Plaza Damas is but a small mall that caters mainly to those in the locality. And Rakuzen must be one of its more popular food outlets in its directory.... More

Good Japanese food. If you know the manager, you can find out whether the fish has just arrived and can get a good cut of sashimi. However there is bound to be inconsistencies as they have no control over the large quantities of ingredients that comes in.
