RAKU combines the precision and artfulness of Japanese culinary history, with the vibrant energy of modern Australian dining. Our sushi team crafts beautiful plates of sashimi, nigiri and maki rolls, whilst the robata grill produce meat, seafood and vegetables dish that sings with the flavours of the flames.

Executive chef Hao is a master with the sushi blade. His culinary creations span the taste spectrum, from subtle and delicate, to robust and exciting flavour profiles. He and his team will ensure you have a memorable meal and have you returning again.

From the second you step into the restaurant, you are treated by a friendly, loving and expertly trained group. Because of the training each staff member undergoes, they can guarantee your night will be described as not just a meal, but an experience, start to finish.
