Pleasantly surprised with excellent sushi in nice atmosphere at a table. Looked like a friendly bar. Will return.
We love this restaurant. We're here almost every week. I tried the beef tataki for the second time and loved it again. The first time it was just a little too peppery for me, so this time they made it a little less peppery. They are always very accommodating.
I tried the beef negamaki tonight for the first time and it was delicious. The meat was so tender and flavorful and the sauce was delicious!
I had the sushi, which was excellent.
The prices and value can't be beat.
Many different choices and the wait staff was attentive and friendly.
We come here often because the sushi is THAT GOOD and the prices are reasonable. This time we had the specials. One was tempura shrimp with mango and the other was a spicy roll made with white tuna. Great combination. Our server was very attentive. Great end to a long day.
The restaurant had just opened so I can understand the service being a little off, however the food was very average. When my first meal is not fantastic, I tend not to visit again unless I hear from someone else that their experience was good. The competition in RI is fierce. Only the best really make it.
The sushi never disappoints. All the rolls are yummy! The pricing is very reasonable making this a place we can enjoy frequently. Service is also very attentive. Try it!
This was our second visit and it was wonderful! We ordered the Valentine Roll, Raku Sakura Roll, Dragon Roll and 2 special rolls. . Titanic and Perfect. They were all delicious, but the Perfect Roll with the jalapeños was a little too hot for me. What makes Raku sushi better than most others is that each roll tastes distinctly different without being drowned in sauce. We also orders the sushi pizza for an appetizer. It was good, but I've had better. But don't let that stop you from ordering everything else! Can't wait to go back and try more!
Food and drinks were amazing and Angel our server was so much fun. The decor was tastefully done and I will definitely go back.
We didn't wait long enough for Raku Sakura to be ready for prime time. We were so excited they opened on Main St in East Greenwich - we ADORE sushi. Without going into too many negative details, the service was upside down on that Saturday night. Really bad. The food was pretty good - no complaints about the food except that the portions were very small compared to the local competitors of Raku Sakura (ie, Yokahoma and Kon Asian Bistro). We will wait a few months and give it another try. As to noise level, we were seated in a booth closest to the bar. The bar area was really noisy. Which a bar should be. However, we think we should have been seated in the back of the restaurant, which had lots of empty booths. Next time we'll ask.
