Our fourth trip here in three years. Glad to see the food remains consistently good. We booked on a Tue for a Thu night table and could only get either a 630 or 9pm reservation! Restaurant is small so unless you're a party of two or even a single diner, and are willing to eat at odd times, you may... More

Some of the best Japanese we have ever had! Managed to snag a reservation here during a recent trip to Vegas prompted by the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. Arrived and took our seat at the wrong Raku. We had ended up at the dessert outlet but fortunately the restaurant was a hop and a skip away. We opted for the... More

A small restaurant in a mall 5 minutes drive from the Venetian/Wynn intersection with an incredible concentration of amazing Japanese spots that do not compete with each other since they serve different kinds of food (Raku, Sweet Raku, Kabuto, Monta Ramen) We were lucky enough to get a seat at the bar at Raku despite non having a reservation (and...

We love coming here because the food is healthy and good for you. We travel a lot and most food choices are unhealthy and not cooked fresh. Here we know we are able to eat clean and stay on track with our diets.

Family of three with a reservation. As mentioned, located in a strip mall it is a bit hidden away. Unassuming but warm interior, we received a very warm welcome. Were promptly seated near the door which because it was particularly cold, was a bit unfortunate at times (large parties coming and going). They have an expansive Sake list and our... More

My best man saw this restaurant in Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown Vegas episode and since he was planning my bachelor's party, we agreed to make this one of the dinner stops. From beginning to the end of the omakase menu, we were delighted by the various tastes and dishes being brought to us. The fish were fresh and melted in... More

On my last trip to Vegas I knew I had to come to Raku based on everything I had heard and it did not disappoint. It was as if I was spending an evening in Japan (without the long plane ride). I was tempted to go for the omakase but just to walk my through the menu on my own.... More

I stopped by here around midnight on a Saturday evening. Service was great, and food was even better! I ordered the enoki bacon-wrapped mushrooms, duck with balsamic soy, the chicken wrapped in chicken, and the green tea crème brulee. All of it was excellent. The pickled salad they give you was really good as well.
