What You'll Get


Raw fish, like snowballs, must be rolled with care before being thrown at a school superintendent for refusing to call a snow day. Enjoy well-crafted, conveniently projectile edibles with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and Japanese fusion fare at Raku in Edina.

Drawing from 16 years of culinary experience, Raku's master chef, Megu Lin, intermingles Japanese classics with French, Italian, and other Asian cuisines. Guests can indulge in a variety of dishes with small plates such as the hot, spicy kimchee squid ($10) or the revenge-cold seared pepper tuna ($10). Broiled eel, shrimp tempura, and avocado mine their way through a mango-and-seaweed cavern in the Sun Kiss sushi roll ($16), and filet mignon with toban-yaki sauce and sake ($25) nods to French-chef forefathers. End edible escapades with an order of green-tea, red-bean, chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla ice cream in a rice wrapper ($5).

Inside the upscale restaurant, geometric furniture and futuristic light schemes lend a hip, upscale vibe. Behind the sushi bar, a parallel series of thin, vertical light fixtures stripe the walls and ascend up and across the ceiling. The main dining room’s high-gloss hardwood floors play host to mod tables and booths where diners can nibble at Japanese fusion fare or meditate on the circular nature of sushi or rolled-up issues of Life.

About Raku Modern Japanese Cuisine


With more than 16 years of culinary experience, master chef Megu Lin can effortlessly craft authentic Japanese delicacies such as miso soup, gyoza, and edamame. Yet he's not afraid to put his own spin on Japanese tradition by incorporating influences from French, Italian, and other Asian cuisines. He creates tuna pizza with tortillas and spicy-mayo sauce, douses grilled lamb in a red-wine reduction, and combines lobster tail and Hibachi-style filet mignon into a Japanese surf 'n' turf.

Chef Lin continues blending tradition and innovation with his sushi, which ranges from classics such as salmon avocado to special rolls such as the Playboy, a shrimp and tuna combo held together by a flaming aluminum wrap. The chef's artistically arranged dishes complement Raku's upscale interior, where thin light fixtures striping the wall and ceiling illumine the dining room's geometric furniture and svelte figure.
