We go to Raku in Edina often because we always have a good experience and reasonably priced meals.

Despite the Valentine's Day crush our waiter did a great job with humor. Food was great.

Don't usually write reviews, but Raku is definitely a favorite of mine. Went there for Valentines day dinner, and had a wonderful time. Food is very good and comparable to fine dining in Japan.

Excellent sushi! Beautiful atmosphere. Quiet on a Thursday night. Great wine list and saki.

Service was horribly slow. They brought the two shrimp tempura that go with the udon soup more than five minutes after the soup (which we already had waited a long time for). The shrimp were overcooked and I've had better udon soup at less expensive restaurants.

Our family of five adults celebrated Christmas Eve at Raku. It was a great experience: friendly, attentive customer service, authentic Japanese cuisine, warm lighting and cozy booths. All of their sushi rolls are delicious, and we order several to share. I like Sassy Lady, Playboy and Captain Crunch, and we always order Lost Tuna Roll and Rock Shrimp Tempura as appetizers. I also like their scallops on eggplant with a light plum sauce. My husband orders their steak teppanyaki and it is always excellent. I highly recommend Raku.

We love raku! I think the restaurant has some of the best sushi in the city. We also enjoy their fried dumplings.

Our family of five adults regularly dines at Raku--at least once a month, often twice and usually for dinner, but lunch occasionally. We just ate there again last Saturday evening. We LOVE Raku. The only reason I haven't written a review earlier is that I don't want the place to get so popular it becomes over crowded!! My favorite appetizers are 1) scallops on eggplant-- it's four large scallops on a slice of eggplant with a slightly sweet sauce, 2) Rock Shrimp Tempura and 3) Lost Tuna. All are delicious. We also like all of their rolls including Sassy Lady, Playboy, and Captain Crunch. Very tasty and sharable. One person in our family doesn't like sushi, so he orders the beef teppanyaki--which comes flaming to the table or teriyaki with plain brown rice and it is very tasty. Grilled tilapia is with vegetables is also excellent. I've ordered as a starter the crab salad with avocado three times this summer and it's been delicious every time. The service is prompt, courteous and very helpful, always willing to explain how dishes are prepared and flavored. Ambiance enables conversation and lighting is warm and contributes to a relaxing venue.

We enjoyed this place a lot. Good food, good service. Was disappointed in how loud other couples were even tho the place was nearly empty. They made a nice place feel like a bar laughing so loud and talking over each other. We will certainly give it another shot to see if this was a one time problem.

My husband and I love Raku. The servers are kind and helpful. The sushi chefs know what they are doing. The menu is huge and although we love sushi, we have never been disppaointed when ordering a non sushi item off the menu. This is a chic, but low key restaurant. Dress: dress up if you want. It will be fine and you will fit in. But they welcome EVERYONEso don't stress out about it!

Raku was fabulous - the food was INCREDIBLE. Very unique and very authentic. We happened upon this restaurant when another restaurant we had intended to go to had a 2 hour wait. I would DEFINITELY come back

My food was spicier than I requested. One person had Chilean sea bass, and the fish portion was very small for the price. Otherwise we were happy - there were four of us dining.
