Raku Sushi - West End
Attentive and friendly serviceOur group of four had dinner there on Mother's Day and we sat in the tatami seating which is beautiful and creative but you don't have to sit cross-legged (there are wells under the table to tuck your legs). We have gone to the Raku in downtown Edina a few times before and always liked their food/service so we decided to try the new West End restaurant. It is very simple and elegant and I have yet to be disappointed in my selections of food at Raku. Lots of choices and very beautifully presented. Our server was attentive and friendly too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceGreat sushi and entrees. Would recommend for a small intimate group of no more than 4.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI want sushi, friend's don't.They have a lot of sushi choices and it's all well done. The staff is polite and service is quick (for hand-made sushi they are very efficient!) They have the popular roll choices as well as some very unique offerings. They have a good Japanese menu available for non-sushi lovers as well. My friends often get their teriyaki dishes or their noodle bowls. Their gyoza and shumai are super good as well as the salads.
They are pretty full on evenings, but lunches are pretty quiet.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRaku RocksThis was our first visit to Raku and it was a great experience the food was prepared very well.

Our waiter was very attentive and had a genuine pleasing personallity. Not cheap without a groupon but well worth it.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic Sushi in the West EndHad the sushi and sashimi lunch - excellent. Presentation - which is a significant part of the magic of sushi and sashimi to my mind - is outstanding. Look, balance, color, all of that, really well done. And then the actual pieces were excellent -- fresh, flavorful, well put together blendings of ingredients with the varous types of fish. This was a business lunch, by the way, and our guests were impressed as well with the overall ambience and quality.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat sushi rolls! I stillGreat sushi rolls!
