The sushi was phenomenal. I don't know what I was expecting, but I was very pleasantly surprised by the flavors of the rolls, and the freshness of fish that melted in my mouth.

Autumn was our server was provided incredible service. The place was fairly full and as the only waiter she was able to ensure we still got great service. Whether it’s my age, race, or clothing choice most waiters provide subpar or neutral service, this was honestly the first time me and my boyfriend received exceptional service which was greatly appreciated. She was sincere and attentive. Well definitely be back soon.

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.
