Raku Asian Dining is all about Asian style dining, sushi and sake, and is therefore a true treat for Eastern cuisine enthusiasts. The bento boxes deliver the best value for money, offering a selection of teriyaki-marinated meats with rice or noodles. Nonetheless, the menu proposes a wide variety of choices, with a la carte fresh sushi as the main attraction, and both warm and cool sake options.
