6 of us had dinner here and nobody enjoyed the food, 3 of us didn't even eat what we were served. Were asked if we wanted frozen or fresh sushi; the seared beef was raw and basically consisted of the waitress applying a blowtorch to some beef slices at the table, unfortunately not cooking all of it, no seasoning, tasteless...

My family visited Rakuzen for lunch on 24 June 2016. We were ushered into a booth seat which is located on the left side of the restaurant once you enter through the main door. It is a great seating choice for some privacy and comfort, considering the right side of the restaurant consisted of tables in an open space. My... More

I have been to Rakuwen in KL several times, this was not as good. The food was ok, menu lacked choice i.e. very few sets. The food was ok but served very quick so assume premade. Overall ok but probably will not go back.

The location I visited is on Telok Ayer, but that one isn't in Trip Advisor and it is the same restaurant group. I enjoyed my meal here. The restaurant is fairly small, but there is counter seating for at least 10 people. So I ate there, with lots of help ordering from the attentive wait staff. I ate eel for... More

We arrived 1 hour before closing and ordered Udon and Teriyaki Beef. I was surprised that they ran out of Udon broth for the Udon - so we opted for miso soup because the whole point of coming here was my girlfriend wanted to have udon. Such a disappointment. The udon ended up not being very good. My beef teriyaki... More

The Marina area now has even more Japanese dining options than ever. Rakuzen has been there awhile and doesn't seem to have maintained its edge.

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
