Rakuzen Restaurant Millenia Walk Singapore


There are many Japanese restaurants in town, but to find one that has good Japanese food at reasonable prices? That’s no mean feat. So imagine my happiness when I chanced upon Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant at Millenia Walk.

The restaurant has a comprehensive menu, with many choices in the sushi, sashimi, fried, and grilled section. Most of the items are priced below $20. For instance, you can get a yakiniku set (with rice and miso soup) for $16, and there is the option of adding sashimi to the set at $23. The prices here are almost comparable to everyone’s favourite Sushi Tei, and the best part is you don’t have to queue for a table.


Rakuzen offers a fanciful range of sashimi – from a nice platter of eight kinds of sashimi ($80) for 3-5 persons; to a chef’s special sashimi set ($40/pax) – but we opted for a simple salmon sashimi ($13 for 7 pcs).

The cranky salmon roll ($9) and California roll ($9) arrived shortly after. Both rolls were simple – the former, salmon in spicy mayonnaise roll topped with flakes and flying fish; and the latter, an avocado roll with omelette, and crabstick – nothing crazy in terms of flavour, but just done well enough to hit the spot.


Next, we had the sukiyaki-style beef set ($18), which was hearty and soulful.


If you like unagi, you should also try Razuken’s roasted eel set ($18).

California Roll

All in all, the food at Rakuzen is of a good standard, and coupled with the fact that it is wallet-friendly, I would certainly go back when I want Japanese food.
