Rakuya was founded back in 2018 with a simple desire to share our love of Japanese food with the world. We pride ourselves on offering an affordable omakase experience that is accessible to all. And with time, we’ve grown and evolved, but we’ve never lost sight of what makes us special.

Our menu is filled with the freshest, highest quality ingredients, and every dish is created with the utmost care and attention to detail. We take pride in our commitment to excellence and our passion for creativity. Each meal at our restaurant is a journey of flavors and textures, carefully crafted to bring one’s palate on an adventure across Asia.

We’re always exploring new techniques and ingredients, pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the culinary world. Our omakase, or “chef’s choice,” menu allows diners to trust in the expertise of our chef and enjoy a surprise selection of delicious and beautifully presented dishes.

Award Winning Kobe Beef

We are delighted to announce that we are one out of three licensed restaurants in Singapore to serve Japan imported Kobe beef.

Award-winning Kobe beef is a highly prized and sought-after delicacy that is known for its incredible flavor, tenderness, and marbling. Kobe beef comes from a specific breed of Wagyu cattle raised in the Hyogo prefecture of Japan, where they are fed a special diet and raised in a stress-free environment to produce the unique qualities that set Kobe beef apart from other types of beef.

We offers our guests the rare opportunity to taste this tender and flavorful meat, known for its high levels of fat marbling.
