Rakuichi is always a must do with visiting children back for the holidays. Lunch is our preferred time, and there are favourite sets to look forward to. The sets come with salad, dessert and a couple of dishes, either dumplings, sushi or miso soup with the main meal. Service is quick and personable.

This is one of those rare places where you can't take pictures of the dishes, because as soon as they touch the table, people are immediately reaching in to try the latest offering. We ordered a lot of food and everything was fresh and delicious. It more than satisfied our sushi craving, and it's definitely on my short list of... More

I love coming here because it's so convenient. You can always find parking right outside in the Dempsey Hill area. The place is decent though uninspiring. And the air-conditioning is sometimes a bit warm, but overall it's just... Decent. It's affordable, service is pleasant and the cooking very reliable. It's not mind blowing which is why it gets only 4/5... More

Heard so much about Rakuichi from the media and friends. Went with my boyfriend today and we ordered a mini course and Rakuichi Bentou set. The chawamushi was too bland. Sushi was average. Only after we paid then realized that the 'free' appetizer was also part of the total bill. Overall experience was a pretty disappointing one.Though service was good,... More

After reading a few reviews here, we went to Rakuichi expecting yummy japanese food. It was I think my most disappointing culinary experience in Singapore! I called earlier in the day to make a reservation and was told that they were fully booked. We decided to try a walk in. We got there and they seated us immediately. I expected... More

I never come out of Rakuichi disappointed. The food looks good and tastes good - those sushi pieces seared were my favorite anytime. The dining room is small but the table is comfortably big for a family of 4. Located at Dempsey, I love it for its bucolic feel and ample parking place that is also free ( rare near... More

It is hard to find bad food in Singapore, and even harder to find bad Japanese food. But if you want to find it, come here. Desultory waitstaff. A starter made from tinned tuna. Unagi cooked to mush. We were happy to have only ordered a few things to start and even happier to be out of here.

Their menu is not cheap, not when you can find food for more than one third the price in Singapore. But for a Japanese restaurant in Dempsey, it's reasonable. My family likes this place, and we visit every so often because, like the title implies, the food is good. There is a lot of competition among Japanese restaurants in Singapore,... More
