    My favourite place to eat out. Not only is the food exceptional but the environment is enjoyable .. the noise level is minimal and pleasant. Well done RK San. Love you for that.

    Disappointed by their so-called omakase. It was not authentic Japanese omakase style. Food was very average and not our expectation at all. Service was below average. The waitress did not pay attention to us at all. If you want to enjoy the authentic Japanese omakase, must skip this one.

    Nice little Japanese restaurant offering very good value for money. Service nice but a bit slow. The signature Tuna Cigar had too much onion, unfortunately

    Love the new restaurant location Sitting out the back was a bit strange, as service was patchy, plus we were seated next to the only other table - in a very large space - and they were VERY noisy Food was great as always Please top up water glasses more often, or just leave a jug for us!

    The service can improve, the waitresses can be a little more friendly and explain what each dish contains

    We arrived on time. The staff didnt handle the previous reservations properly and asked all of us who had reservations around that time to either cancel the reservation or wait for 1 hour. Horrible to force us to cancel plans on Valentines Day!

    Nope. RK used to be great. A very special Japanese atmosphere. Not anymore. Feels like another Cleveland st Indian restaurant.

    RK San is a wonderful restaurant. The team in the kitchen, led by RK, is outstanding and the warmth and competence of the floor staff is exceptional. We look forward to many more enjoyable meals at RK San.
