I come to Raku every time I visit Vegas, which is about once per year. This place is the bees knees. The small plates are just excellent. Homemade tofu is outstanding. The salmon belly was fantastic. The cold udon was first rate. This beats Sakagura in New York City, and many of the places I regularly attend in Boston for... More

Get off the Strip again and enjoy great Japanese food ( not just sushi) without typical Vegas glitz. Second time in a couple of years. The tasting menu was superb and the sake list was excellent. The cab ride out was only 12 dollars. Will always make this a stop when in Vegas. Make reservations prior to arriving in Vegas... More

This is one of the best meals we have ever had. We had the omakase menu, and it was just one wonderful dish after another, and I have lived in Japan. The service was excellent, the vibe was chill, and the food was just soooo darn good. It is a totally un-Vegas experience, which works for me, because I hate... More

The check might have been a little lighter if the kobe beef and the foie gras and the sake weren't all so good, but every once in awhile it is a pleasure to treat fellow colleagues with an absolute superb dining experience. Four of us each started ordering two dishes each in turn, trying to share as many possible dishes... More

This was my first time dine in Raku and unfortunately will be my last, first of all, we got in and was hoping to sit in the bar, so we don't have to wait too long, since the bar were full at that time, we were told to wait at the waiting area, ok that's cool with me. What I... More

An overall good experience, but none of the food wowed our group of four. We did like the small private room for our party of four and the server was quite nice.

If you're a foodie headed to Vegas, then you've probably heard about Raku. I honestly can't say more than: it was what I hoped it would be. More. The only complaint I have is that we were kept waiting quite a while for our (reserved) table. However, it's a small place and once I had the fish I knew why... More

I decided to take a chance and showed up shortly after opening time on a Tuesday without a reservation. Was seated at one of the 5 chairs at the bar within 10 minutes. A group of 3 were already seated there and another guy came in just after me, so that gives you an idea of how quick you have... More

I saw this place on Anthony Bourdain's television show. It really peaked my interest, so when my wife and I visited Vegas this month we had to (well, I had to) check it out. We didn't make a reservation (mistake) until we arrived, so we did not get in until 23:00, but who cares when in Vegas! It was a... More

We dine at Japanese sushi restaurants regularly. We selected Raku based on a TripAdvisor review and we were quite pleased. Upon entering we found a quiet (great atmosphere) and small (15 tables or so in the main room), room with lovely ambiance. The menu has many dishes of which we could recognize almost none. No nigiri type sushi is served;... More
