Matthew is the best server! He is accommodating and helpful. We tried a ton of stuff, including pop rocks on the Rock star roll, oysters, dumplings, and a few other rolls. Everything was delicious and made to order. 10/10 would dine again!

About us

RAKITORI stands for a simple combination of Ramen and Yakitori which Owner Chef John wants to be specialized in Japanese Cuisine. Our Ramen stocks are simmering more than 8-10 hours individually and combined together, then simmering one more time.
One key point is we don't have a deep fryer. So, all of our food are boiled, steamed,grilled, baked and sauteed.
We are comitted to provide healthy and natural food and delightful dining experience to our customer.
