The favorite was definitely the pork cheek, mushroom wrapped with bacon and the fried chicken. The rest, Kobe with garlic, duck, chicken thigh, iberico pork, and the tofu were good but it wasn’t mind blowing delicious. Service was good.

Raku is a must eat on my list when I am in town. Reservation ahead of time is highly recommended. Parking lot is always full. Poached egg with uni, pork cheek, tofu, Foie gras over rice were great.

Hidden off the beaten track in what is really a strip mall is a true gem. The staff is amazing. So nice and helpful. The menu focuses on small plates and it is NOT a sushi restaurant. The tofu is as fresh as any I’ve...More

Raku is not the typical "Japanese sushi" restaurant you find almost anywhere, it is a more restaurant serving more traditional japanese fare in a quiet atmosphere. Their specialty starter is Raku tofu served in huge portions, a bit too bland for my taste though the...More
