Really different, like a Japanese fusion tapias restaurant. Dishes are all made to order and top quality and presentation. Reservations suggested and this is not a place to go if you don't have time for a leisurely meal experience. Your patience will be rewarded

The food is of good quality and tasty. The portion is small but the price is hefty! We wonder if our portion of food is smaller because we bring in Groupon. The size of the black ling cod is tiny. The two of us spent $53 just for the food, drinks not included. Of course, the $40 coupon helped!

The food at Raku Plus Restaurant is great. Understandably, the place gets crowded due to loyal customers or new ones. However, it would be great to have somebody show the guests to a table or the bar instead of letting them stand by the door. Don't let the guest wait for more than 20 mins before offering them something to drink. As my friend have said when we went there, we are slow eaters and big tippers. We loved the experience eating there but service could have been better by paying a little bit more attention to other guests as opposed to bigger parties (yes there was a big party at that time we went). Also, if it is possible, make the wait time shorter. It turns people away when they have to wait for more than 2hrs with a kid in tow.

The wait was 2 hours in the cold...the service inside was another 2 hrs to get our orders filled, but everything was so delicious we would come back again midweek and not a weekend! I know it was the last day for the groupon, but maybe the restaurant could've been more prepared by adding an extra waitress or hiring a busboy to help clear the tables.

Allot of on the menu but strange items. Service was terrible. The front part of the restaurant was nice but the kitchen area look run down, should be blocked.

Everything I tried was delicious...esp the eggplant w miso. Hours of operation are difficult...open at 6 p.m.until late/closed Tues. Getting to downtown LA is challenge.
