Raku Sweets - Unique with excellent service

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.

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

Wow, the great reviews are well deserved. Our favourites were: steamed foie gras egg custard (yum); agedashi tofu, grilled beef with wasabi; grilled yellowtail; miso soup; and butter sautéed scallop. Our least favourite was a special – a tuna hot pot which was over-cooked, under-flavoured and over-priced. I’d be inclined to stick to the menu next time.

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
