Since humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon. For $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and other Japanese fare at Sushi Raku in Midtown

Through the power of seaweed, sushi compartmentalizes your food into neat, bite-sized spare tires that rejuvenate deflated stomachs. Have sortabreakfast for dinner with a futomaki roll filled with egg, shittake, dried cod, and gourd ($6), or embrace the raw, unmitigated encounter between humankind and fishkind with a ko-haku roll of Texas blue crab, avocado, tuna, and jalapeño ($15). Or keep your seameat affair superficial with a decadent salmon-skin roll with radish sprouts, pickled burdock, and cucumber ($6). Sushi Raku also serves a variety of heat-applied cuisine, sporting with flair northern Japanese robata grill fare. Nab skewers loaded with weighty delectables such as Kobe beef and yuzu pepper ($13.50) or rib eye and wasabi ($7) and enjoy them blackened over a simmering hearth.

Decked out with Samurai gear for cutting enormous sushi rolls, stark red walls, and clean, mod furniture lines, Sushi Raku exudes elegance and grandeur. Lush red ropes drape from the high ceiling and cascade down the walls while sleek pendant lighting makes the grand proportions seem intimate, focusing diners' attention on each elegantly plated meal. Combining Japanese imports with local ingredients, each piece of edible art inhabits a sophisticated cosmopolitan realm of intricate presentation and simply delicious flavor.


On top of positive reviews from the Houston Chronicle and the Houston Press, Sushi Raku has 3.5 stars from Citysearchers and Yelpers. Seventy-four percent of Urbanspooners like it.

  • The visual feast extends to the Japanese and Pan-Asian cuisine from [chef Takayoshi] Sekiguchi, whose approach to food is to create modern art. One glimpse at Sekiguchi's presentations and diners will know they've met something special. – Greg Morago, Houston Chronicle
  • The tempura veggies were outstanding - the fried mushroom, potato, and pepper tempura was the highlight of our meal, and easily surpassed the ribeye skewers. – Greenway Barista, Houston Press
