Very good servings and menu.

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... read more

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.

after 8 yrs since last rakuzen tasting (plaza damas), I was having a bit of high expectations. Rakuzen today is too commercialise feel. Gone are those days when the Japanese chef himself lead the greetings. Staffs are still lack of training (friday) to handle large and busy crowds. Food quality can be improved. Food portions must be careful. For example,... More

Kindly do something about your quality control. Your sushi chef cuts tiny slivers of fish and passes it off as a piece of sashimi. I have never seen sashimi cut in such a manner before. We have complained to the outlet many times but nothing is done about it.

Rakuzen DPC's sushi counter was showing water stains and dirty counter/display joints from water condensation outside of the refrigerated sushi display. There were ants crawling on the counter and insects flying around. The water condensation inside the sushi display rung alarm bells to food hygiene standards especially when raw fish were involved. In addition a couple of the sushi &... More

We wanted a private room for 10. The room was comfortable, spacious and the food was adequately portioned. Good value for informal gatherings
