I didn't make a rez but luckily there was room at bar area. GREAT Staff. I needed help on the menu and my server was helpful and guided me thru the hot. Cold plates. Not a place you get a California Roll and call it a day. Expand your palette at this hidden gem. Don't chance it. Make reservations if... More

Had the large set menu for $100. Worth every dime of it. (Filet of Yellowtail may have been the highlight, followed by the sashimi which was from around the world). Inventive, perfectly executed. Amazing menu of sake and unique Japanese beers. However, I wouldn't recommend it if you want atmosphere and attentive staff. In that way it is like a... More

Made a point to eat at Raku while in Las Vegas this trip. Held off having dinner until the only 9PM seat they had available. Wasn't impressed. Scallops were overcooked a bit. Uneven texture. Salmon on a stick was salmon on a stick and not much more. The custard special was a bit flavorless. Unappealing texture. Mistake in ordering this... More

Hidden in a shopping center the staff was friendly and made suggestions. Due to my own food preferences, there were a number of dishes I wouldn't try. Most of what I did try did not taste like I expected it, or had experienced. Very tasty, but if some of the ingredients were overwhelming, taking over the tast e of the... More

This is our second visit - our first was about 5 years ago. A few things to consider - make a reservation, they will inform you that you have the table for two hours (actually plenty of time - even if you enjoy long leisurely meals), enlist the extremely knowledgeable staff to guide you, and try something new! Best dish... More

Reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, this was a definite stop for us on our recent trip to Las Vegas that focused on dining and entertainment. The restaurant is located a short drive or cab ride from the strip. We made reservations a little more than a week prior and were able to get a table early in the evening. The... More

I ventured to Chinatown solo while in Las Vegas for business...and boy, am I glad I did. I did make a reservation, as has been suggested by many. Interestingly, I was advised when I called that I had to be out by 8 for a 6pm reservation. I was fine with the notion, but a little taken aback at the... More

We went late - around 10:30 pm and the place was packed. Make a reservation for sure. We ended up at the bar and it was a fine place to sit. The menu is mostly small plates - sushi, charcoal grilled meats and seafood, soups and small plates of tofu (homemade). The best things we had were the scallop in... More

Food here is excellent and it's very difficult to get a table here at normal eating hours. The decor is pretty plain and could use a refresh. She food is small tapas style plates with lots of grilled foods, including some innards, but they're all good. I don't know if I'd take it over one of the nicer places on... More

This was one of the best meals I've had in the United States... seriously, it was outstanding!! If you like real Asian food/authentic Japanese food then this is some of the best you'll get. And the funniest thing about it, is that it's in Las Vegas, haha. Personally I think the food & the restaurants in Vegas are "cheesy" and... More
