The dishes were tapas styled but amazingly delicious! Most impressive was the de boning of the Herron fish that was then deep fried and tasted like chips! Prices were most affordable for almost 10 dishes! Will be back!

A must when visiting Las Vegas, this place is truly worth every penny. The staff are amazing and kept the dishes coming, explaining along the way. We will certainly eat here again if visiting Las Vegas as it was everything a Japanese restaurant should be. Large parties didn't faze them guess they are well used to them given the quality...

every trip to Las Vegas by us includes a visit to Raku. Parameters of their reservation system are a little difficult because this is a small place but where else would I eat fresh tofu and want another order. Mostly small plates but more than adequate.

The food was amazing and was well balanced with different options to suit the experienced Japanese diner and the new to the experience. We had one party member who was unsure about most items but tried a range of things and loved everything. For those of us who love great Japanese we were just as happy.

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!
