Restaurant review: It's almost impossible to find anything negative about Raku

In the middle of 2018, Raku exploded onto the Canberra dining scene in a town where high-end Japanese fare was under-represented. Canberrans clearly loved the snap of a tightly rolled maki, the crackle of a charcoal-fuelled robata grill and the pop of the delicate tobiko sprinkled on their nigiri. They love this place so much, that when I mentioned to a couple of friends that I was reviewing here tonight, I was sternly warned not to utter a negative haiku about the place.
