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...

My second fantastic meal here. This time, got the Udon Noodle with Foie Gras Egg Custard Soup and the Enoki Mushroom Wrapped with Bacon from the robata grill. Plus some sake from their extensive sake menu. It was absolutely perfect. Can't wait to return.

When you're in Vegas, Raku is a place not to be missed! This is Japanese style tapas and grill. We ordered about 15 different dishes and not a single one was bad. Every dish that comes out and served on your table, is well worth the wait. Well deserved reputation for being the best Japanese restaurant in Vegas!

I'm surprised Raku is not ranked higher, it's a very good Japanese restaurant, my first stop in Vegas every visit. Granted it's quite a way off-strip, but well worth the trek. Frankly I'm tired of celebrity chefs opening restaurants in Vegas and nowhere close to living up to the hype and standard. These genuine, authentic restaurants are what I prefer... More

Great Japanese food, very fresh sashimi. Every bit is worth the price. Service is good but could be better. Worth trying.

This is simply the best authentic Japanese restaurant I have ever been too. Small, quiet and off the strip. We had a variety of dishes including poached egg with sea urchin, foie gras egg custard, Kobe beef skirt steak and waygu beef sukiyaki. Everything was amazing! Highly recommend Raku.

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
