We had our own room which was nice. We tried a lot of the food on the menu. The Kobe beef was my favorite. Great for sampling. The dessert was great too. However, we had a party of 6 which they automatically added on gratuity and the waiter wasn't even that good to deserve that much tip. He was inattentive... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this restaurant. There are a variety of small dishes to try that the wait staff will give great seasoning suggestions for each that they have at the end of the table. We loved everything, but especially loved the steamed foie gras custard, crispy asparagus, and in house made tofu. We got a bottle of... More

My second visit to Raku and it equaled my first visit, in which I just didn't have the words to describe just how spectacular the food and service there was. You can order of the menu or allow the chef to prepare some 10-15 dishes to taste a wide variety from Freshly made Tofu to Pork, grilled on skewers. Wide... More

If you're looking for something other than the buffets and American food while in Vegas, try out Raku Japanese restaurant in W Spring Mountain Road (close to Chinatown). We came here on a whim after I saw it on...where else..trip advisor! Make sure you get a reservation as it gets full. We squeezed in and sat at the bar. Best... More

Let me start by saying my friend Eric and I have eaten at many well known restaurants and we are definitely foodies. We had high expectations for raku and it didn't disappoint. We ordered off both the regular menu and off the specials. We had snapper both grilled and fried, kanpachi, chicken with skin, Kobe beef with Wasabi, duck with... More

Food and service top notch. Could not have been better. Chairs were a bit uncomfortable hence the knockoff of a star. Did I mention this restaurant serves its menu as small sharing plates? The food ordered was for two people. In no particular order we enjoyed: Raku Tofu 1/2 order Yellowtail Carpaccio Iberico Pork Juicy Deep Fried Chicken Kurobuta Pork... More

The atmosphere inside is quite upscale, and with only around 30 seats, this is a tough reservation sometimes. Try coming after 10pm, which is a good time for drinking anyway. You want to come here for the food, and the delicate flavors and textures of this type of food. If you treat this as any type of izakaya, then you... More

Don't get misslead by the food- court they are located, once you enter the restaurant you can easely feel you're in Japan. This " japanese tapas" restaurants offers the real stuff through caring and well prepared service staff. Great sake selection. Really a pleasant surprise

I put this on my list of places to eat at because it was recommended by Anthony Bourdain. First night we arrived in Las Vegas, my wife and I went there for dinner. It was a small restaurant in a strip mall by Chinatown, but don’t let the location put you off. The food was great, ordered Poached Egg with... More
