My friend & I were in Vegas for a trade show & wanted to eat off the strip. So happy we found this place! Cozy atmosphere, super friendly staff, reasonably priced, but above all, great food! Chef sent us an amuse-bouche, and I wish I knew what it was, because it was SO!! delicious! So simple, but so fresh and... More

For anyone who loves authentic Japanese food this restaurant is not to be missed!!! Open late, always busy and there is a reason why. The food is unlike that which you have had before, unless you lived in Japan. I highly recommend their Tofu. We had the whole Agedashi Tofu and it was the best I have ever had (and... More

Loved every minute of eating dinner at Raku. They presented the specials on a chalkboard to us and we tried a few things - fantastic! Then we just ordered a bunch off the regular menu and everything was excellent. We finished with a bowl of soup with a rice ball. I wish i went back the next day .... great... More

Really nice to eat away from the strip. We were offered an interesting selection of Japanese food. Tofu particularly good. The order the food was served in was all over the place the night we went.

We found this place on a "best affordable eats" kind of Vegas guide. We were able to get a reservation for the same evening and loved our meal so much we returned the next night. Favorite dishes were the duck with balsamic and soy, and surprisingly, the Kobe beef liver sashimi (!), and the grilled pork intestines. Highly recommended!

We decided to go at 1:30am for our very first time and it was amazing. The Garlic and Wasabi Kobe beef was unreal. The sushi was as fresh as it gets. We got the sashimi salad, blue fin tuna special and kanpache special - all rediculous. The sushi ched and servec was top notch for a small place. Everything from... More

Living in Hawai`i, eating Japanese cuisine is very common for us. This restaurant in Las Vegas, however, stands out. It is not "fine" dining, it is better than that. It is enjoyable. From the welcome, the suggestion of sake, the quality of the food, the attentive service, the cleanliness of the restaurant (including the restroom), to the sayonara, terrific. Am... More

Although the Restaurant is not near the strip it's definitely worth the drive. The restaurant is pretty small and parking is somewhat difficult. Make reservations at least a week in advance for more options. When I called for a Thursday reservation, they had either 6:30pm or 9:00pm and it was 4 days away. I went with the 6:30pm reservation and... More

Took my husband to Vegas for his fiftieth and decided to go off the beaten path for dinner with friends. This place is tiny, so reserve early. They bring you a series of amazing Japanese tapas, basically. We truly enjoyed.

I took my husband here for his 40th birthday dinner. I had made a reservation a few weeks ahead of time before we came to town. The restaurant is fairly small and has a great atmosphere. We started with a sake flight, as we did not have much experience with it before(, well, compared to the many they had listed.)... More
