This restaurant is where I frequent multiple times when in Vegas

I don't think I have ever had a bad dish at Raku. The agadashi tofu is like eating warm cream it is so soothing. The duck, the kama, the foie gras, the wagyu beef, the sashimi I can go on and on about how all these dishes are wonderful, and don't forget the soba and the fried chicken. If you... read more

I first heard about Raku a few years ago but assumed that, being Japanese, it would be mainly fish/seafood/sushi. Actually, it doesn't even serve sushi (but it does have sashimi and carpaccio) and has a lot of meat/poultry dishes so I decided to try it out. You can only book by phone, but luckily they are open very late so... More

There are so many terrific places on the Las Vegas strip, but we decided off the beaten track was worth a try. Raku, a hidden gem, 10 minutes from the Wynn in a small strip mall, was worth the diversion. Amazing Japanese food in a low key and friendly local environment. No lights, no cameras, no action, just really good... More

My husband and I tried this place Sunday. The wait staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We tried the Foie Gras with Stella and Mt. Fuji. Presentation was incredible. It was very appealing to the eye and fun to watch it being made. The taste was very good. It was a little pricey, but overall the experience was worth it.

My wife and I dined here recently, and it was just awesome! We had a variety of items off the menu, all of which were very unique and tasty. The winner of the night was the Kobe beef - it was truly one of the best things I've ever eaten. Staff was friendly and there are lots of options to... More

A friend brought us to Raku and oh my…what an unbelievable and amazing experience. Every dish was yummy, flavorful and expertly prepared. Service was top notch. You can tell the food is made with care. Even the toilets are cool. It's all in the details. They even make their own soy sauce. Love, love, love this place. And check out... More

No dislikes whatsoever. Robatayaki and other Japanese dishes at its finest. Lucky enough to sit in the secluded tatami-type room with no distractions nearby. Endo is a genius.

I consider this one of the best bargain in Vegas, consider the same quality of the food is charges 3x more in Vegas hotel strips, take a short drive and try this place out, book ahead, this is one hot place to book. No matter you like the sushi, or hot dishes in Japanese, they have them all. Not sure... More

Best Japanese dining experience ever. They have a lot of authentic Japanese dishes but they also have very unique items as well. I loved every single item I ordered but especially I loved pork ear. It sounds and looks strange but taste amazing. The service was wonderful too. Excellent!!

My wife and I had a wonderful evening at Raku in a private booth. We love sharing small plates and being able to experience many different dishes. While we love sushi, it is also wonderful to have a meal of Japanese specialties that does not include sushi, as Japanese food is so much more than that. Among our favorites: the... More
