Every aspect of our experience here was out-of-this world. The atmosphere/ambiance, the Sake, the FOOD!!! oh, the food. I still dream of it. The service! We had an amazing long dinner, we look forward to returning. I wish there was a way to rate this that falls above "excellent." Words truly elude me trying to do this place justice. Not... More

We had been told to visit this restaurant by a few folks and they were right. We had our own little room (just the table and benches to sit on) that felt very "Japanese." We ordered mostly from the menu (actually quite reasonable prices for the quality of food) and a couple off the specials (beware, ask for the prices)... More

My beau and I spent the weekend in Vegas and were looking for a nice, intimate place to dine that would challenge his palate, preferably a white-table cloth restaurant. When I searched for fine-dining in my search engine, Raku came up. I read the reviews on Trip Advisor, all of which were rated with 5 stars, and decided that this... More

We ate at Raku during CES week one of the busiest in the year and fell in love with it. The food is authentically Japanese and every dish comes with the polite explanation and suggestions of the very attentive staff. The tofu melts in your mouth and the days special, waguy beef was delicious. Prices are reasonable although some portions... More

it has redeemed Vegas for me! I would gladly visit Vegas again *just* to eat at this establishment. The food was decently priced and filling. The ingredients are simple but the execution and technique used to create each dish seemed exceptional. The best dishes would have to be the chicken wings...by far the best chicken I've ever tried. A must... More

This place totally lives up to the hype! Probably the best food we have had in Vegas. Hard to find in a small dimly lit strip mall in Chinatown but totally worth the effort to get there. Kobe beef and pork shoulder melted in our mouths. One bottle of cake read wine and many little samples of the food took... More

You can't really go wrong with anything you order at Raku, everything is so good. Try the housemade tofu, sashimis, grilled cherry tomatoes, bacon wrapped enoki mushrooms and whatever the specials are (they are ALWAYS amazing). Don't forget to save room for cheesecake :)

Not traditional japanese cuisine, but I bet the traditionalist will love this place too. We decided to sample items off the menu instead of omakase and were pleased with our exploration. Top choices: spinach sashimi salad with generous servings of ah tuna; juicy fried chicken that was really, really good; Kobe beef tendon on a skewer was melt in your... More

This is a busy little place. It takes a bit of an effort to make a reservation, but try calling in the late afternoon. It is worth the effort. They limit you to two hours, but the meal wasn't rushed, and the staff is friendly enough, while trying to accommodate as many guests as possible. Perhaps the best dish was... More

First, you need reservations for this restaurant. I highly recommend the spinach salad, I think it has to be the best salad ever! The crispy asparagus is simply amazing, so is the crispy chicken both must have! We were a little disappointed with the duck, it did not taste good. The apple lamb chop was good too, should try if...
