    From the moment I received the Japanese welcome on entering, I thought I was in for a treat. I read deeply about the owner’s CV and decided this was going to be something special for our group of 6 friends for a long awaited catch up. Oh my, we decided on the Chef’s Banquet and were completely blown away. Food was spectacular! Service and everything under difficult circumstances (Distancing etc) was spot on. Chef’s CV does him proud. This is not only a local gem, but a great experience restaurant I would happily come back to time and time again. Very highly recommended for the best Japanese you will eat!

    Great food and wonderful service. Fresh and sake was amazing with plenty of varieties. Surprised there was no eel on the menu for a Japanese restaurant

    The food served in RK San restaurant was fantastic. The sashimi was deliciously fresh and cut of the fish was outstanding. Each bite into the sashimi beings you closer to the ocean. Love the other dishes which we ordered because they are meticulously crafted by the chefs.

    A great Japanese restaurant that serves quality food. It’s classic Japanese dishes done really well. We liked that the dishes came out one at a time and enabled us to pace ourselves. There was so much on the menu that we couldn’t fit in our stomachs so will definitely back!

    Good sashimi and signature dishes, but eggplant quite greasy and burnt. Carpaccio was done well, and the snapper was nice. Service was good overall.

    Decor not so nice, however, the food was quite tasty and they restaurant used fresh ingredients. The washbi was very fresh. The serving sizes was a tad small, however, the taste made up for that. All the dishes we had were very nice.

    Great menu, quality seafood and house sake is exceptional. Very unassuming local gem, catering for couples, families with kids or just groups of friends. Will definitely be back again

    This is the most amazing Japanese in Sydney, everything we ate was delicious and the service was impeccable. Do yourself a favour and have a tuna cigar ???? it’s one of a kind! I’ve already booked to go back

    RK San is a quiet little restaurant with excellent and attentive staff. Some of the dishes were a bit of a hit and miss (eg. wagyu carpaccio could have bigger slices) but the sashimi platter was fresh and excellent!
