A small Japanese restaurant that has sushi and traditional Japanese dishes. My wife typically has sushi and likes it, I have the chicken, seafood or steak dishes. Food is good, not great, but nothing has ever been bad. Service is average, but never rude or arrogant. I think they work with a small serving staff. But their miso, salad and... More

The restaurant sushi is good when it's good but can be inconsistent. We have had good meals here and below average meals. May depend upon whether or not the fish is fresh so I would avoid late into the weekend. The chef will make custom dishes for you and the staff has always been friendly. Wish they were more consistent... More

A place for good sushi. The service is only ok, but the sushi is fresh, generous, and tasty. The blue fin toro from Spain is our favorite. And the BSCR roll is also very good.

I've been going here for years and the fish is always fresh. The sushi chefs can create dishes for you, or you can order from their extensive menu of rolls and dinner entrees.

We've been here for lunch a couple of times and it was OK. We just went for dinner and it was horrible. Sushi was mediocre. Salmon skin roll was tough and funky tasting; it kept coming back to haunt us all night. The worst was a "miso black cod" dinner. Every miso black cod I've ever had has been buttery,... More

Have been a faithful restaurant customer for four years. Spent a ton of money and went all the time. Tonight, with several open tables, the manager, Jin, did not allow my wife (who is handicapped) and I to sit in one of the several empty booths. She expected us, after yelling at us, to squeeze into a tiny table which... More

The "best", I'd rate it place 2 or 3 of local sushi rest's to check out. If you like the E beans they comp you an appetizer right off. I ordered the14.00 sushi combo plate- huge, very fresh and & super value. The chicken & sirloin plate was just as good but sirloin as it tends to be more dense... More

Service was kind and inviting. Atmosphere is decent. Sushi rolls were average. I am glad I visited, though wouldn't likely return.

If you want a cozy place to bring a couple friends, then this might be the sushi place to go. We take a group of 4 here, whenever we have house guests visiting. The place keeps changing the help, so you may get an off day of service. The sushi is always good, and the prices are average for this... More

The service was so bad, they should've paid me for pain and suffering. Not just lazy... mean, sneaky, gross, etc etc. I live in the neigborhood so I keep trying Raku every year or so, hoping it will magicially get better. I had written it off as a wanna-be upscale, unaccomodating, unfriendly sushi joint before giving it one last try... More
