Attended dinner with 2 other associates from work. We all generally liked the sushi. One person sent back the ginger salad because they thought it didn't taste right. All the shishimi and sushi rolls were excellent. Miso soup was ok, not great. Menu selections were enormous. Overall, very good, but not excellent.

The dim sum was surprisingly good, considering that they were not made daily, but "steamed to order". They tasted quite fresh. We had the old favorites, including BBQ pork buns, spring roll, daikon cake, tofu skin roll, shrimp dumpling, sticky rice wrapped in lotus leave. The only thing that was sub-par was the braised duck feet, which for some reason, were dyed with red food coloring and overly sweet.

Want Japanese and Chinese dim sum? They've got them both here and they're both great! Love the Mexico Roll and the stuffed eggplant. This is a family business. Service is friendly and personal. Prices about par for Naperville. Lots of parking, all credit cards taken. Nice salt water aquarium in the entrance. Been coming here about five years and never been disappointed.

Raku Sushi looks almost promising pulling in to the parking lot and walking in the door. The atmosphere is pretty good, if a bit austere. My server was friendly, but she waited until there was literally one piece of sushi on my plate before asking, "is everything OK?"

I ordered a house salad, and two rolls, Futomaki and Unagi (eel). The salad is on the menu as "mixed greens", but sadly was 100% iceberg, with a dressing that had an unpleasant vinegar taste. The Futomaki is on the menu as 6 pieces, but i only received 5. It was OK, but not flavorful and skimpy on the fish. The Unagi featured rubbery eel. The sushi rice wasn't that fresh. The ginger is unfortunately artificially dyed pink instead of natural tan.

No wifi available, and the cell tower service is so bad that my broswer kept timing out. I cannot recommend this place.

It was my birthday weekend. We decided to have some dim sum for lunch and didn't want to drive all the way to Chinatown in Chicago. We had been to Raku Sushi before for sushi and wanted to try the dim sum, had read good reviews. When we were seated, our waiter brought the adults water and we had to specifically ask him to give water to our 3.5 year old son. The waiter refused and said our son would spill the water. This statement angered us since we had just sat down and our son was well-mannered. There were other families with small children in the restaurant. All the children seemed to be behaving well. We got some strange looks from the waiter and didn't feel welcome there. We decided to leave and go down the street to Joy Yee Noodle where the atmosphere was more acceptable of families with small children.

We'll NEVER go back to the restaurant!
