Comprehensive menu with almost too many options to choose from! The handmade nori was delicious and i wish we’d ordered more. The seafood cooked on the grill was also fresh and cooked well. Will definitely come back!

Excellent food and service, would highly recommend the Tasting Menu, the wagyu gyoza are extra tasty. Restaurant can be a little noisy and some of the tables are shared but going later at night means less people.

I took the royal menu. Food are not bad and creative, and it’s definitely not related to traditional Japanese food. I can have some new taste I never had, but it’s not that tasty and worth the price.

Nothing can be faulted at Raku. It’s expensive but so worth the treat. Stunning presentation and divine food. A true Japanese delight!

Brilliant service, lovely staff and terrific food. We had a fantastic meal and the staff were more than obliging. We ordered a bottle of Gallagher’s sparkling, but unfortunately they’d sold the last unopened bottle at lunchtime. The staff found us another bottle of wine, but also gave us a complimentary glass of what was left of the Gallagher’s sparkling. A big thank you!

The Maki rolls and desserts are fabulous! Sit at the bar to see the action!
