About Raku Dining

Tantalise tastebuds with modern Japanese fare at Raku Dining on Bunda Street in Canberra. Combining the precision of Oriental cuisine with the vibrant energy of Mod Oz dining, Raku is all sleek lines, pale wood tables and stools, mixed with glossy tiles and floor-to-ceiling glass windows, to create a chic and trendy vibe. Best described as art on a plate, be prepared for starters like kingfish sashimi and truffle yuzu dressing, or Wagyu tartare, sansho pepper dressing, caramelised miso butter and a lotus cracker; followed by marinated duck breast, pickled Nashi pear, plum purée and sansho pepper salt. Be enticed by robata grill options of scallops, jalapeño, green apple and garlic mayo, or teriyaki glazed King salmon and pickled radish; finish sweetly with matcha mochi and beer ice cream.

service is varied, most food is good,
only the famous Scotch fillet is overcooked


Amazing food, quality and flavours
I enjoyed the food at Raku more than our recent Tetsuyas meal in August. Some dishes had the wow factor, notably the NZ snapper sashimi with wagyu bresaola and truffle ponzu. Perfect balance of flavours, high quality ingredients, best food I have had in ages and we travel and eat at hatted restaurants a lot.

This restaurant deserves a hat for sure.
I cannot wait to return to try the rest of the menu.
