On the recommendation of a neighbor we visited Raku for dinner. Four of us dined together. The other couple was a big less adventuresome than we, so we made choices based on foods we thought would appeal to everyone at the table. Since it was our first visit we were a little uncertain how to order. Fortunately everything we chose... More

Foie gras egg custard, garlic kobe beef and wasabi kobe beef are heavenly!!!!! Also don't forget to try their sister desert restaurant next door Raku Sweets!!! Every dish is like a piece of art--let alone they have an edible menu!!!!! And it is HARD to get a reservation at Raku for a regular dinner time slot. People were coming in... More

It was a nice place with very good sushi, but terrible octopus. We took tuna sashimi and omlet sashimi, both was great! I can recomend this place for a lunch!

This tiny little restaurant was a highlight of our trip. It is a tiny place so I would recommend making a reservation. Restaurant is located off the main strip so prices are very reasonable compared to other restaurants in Vegas serving this quality food. We went all out and only spend a fraction of what we would have on that... More

Wow! Sometimes you need to get out of your comfort level in order to discover eye opening experiences and Raku is a great place to do just that. Everything was delicious (and we did order over 15 dishes)! Tried some "hairy crab", raw kobe beef liver, pig ears....Amazing!! Wished I could have eaten more cause I did not want to... More

We found Raku at the Vegas Eater website and it was really great! They are not the typical sushi Japanese restaurant. Their specialty is "robata", a traditional grill, so this is a good option for those who are not into eating raw fish. The restaurant is small and you should make reservations (only by phone). The service is very good... More

This tiny place is a MUST if you like good food. The space is reduced, but everything else is awesome. One of the best non-traditional japanese I´ve ever tried. Go with an open mind. ONLY SUGGESTION: Make an effort on your wine list, the same way they do with the sake offering. Go go go

We made reservations(recommended) for the restaurant and were instructed that our meal would be 2 hours long. We ordered our food and relieved each dish one at a time. We were very hungry so at first we wanted them to bring out all the dishes at once. There was some time between some of the dishes. But as we ate... More
