Good sushi

Nothing fancy or flashy here. Good sushi and terriyakki for carry out or for a very casual eat in meal (I think more geared for carry out)

We ordered two boats (about 34 pieces per boat). You can specify which pieces you want. I recommend the eel along with octopus, shrimp, crab, tuna, white tuna, red clams, etc. They make the sushi right in front of you so its always fresh. We have been coming here for over 15 years and they have never disappointed us. They... More

I have often walked by this restaurant. My husband suggested we try it and I am glad we did. The sushi is sooo fresh and tasty and is made right in front of you. For only 50 cents more, you can request brown rice, which is my preference. At my request, the Pad Thai was made just the way I... More

They serve such a tiny bit of food! Just ridiculous. Staff members are racist and low class. Seriously not worth it, they just happen to be one of the few Germantown restaurants.

Too greedy and just rude. I wouldn't want to loose a customer but keep and gain more, there just money hungry and cheapskates!

I have walked by Rainbow Shushi countless times over the years and never gave it a thought. But we decided to try something new and we are glad we did. Walking in the place is clean and bright. Small but comfortable and the staff smiling and warm. We ordered our food which was a varied lot. Tuna Shashimi, Tempura Vegitibles,... More

Had lunch here. No crowd - got me wondering if food turnover (freshness) was a problem. Simple decor, no fancy frills but food quality was very good. Sushi an sashimi selections were excellent. Also have hot foods - my kids love the salmon teriyaki. Excellent service too.

Rainbow Sushi is delicious, with a variety of sushi / maki menu items and other items like teriyaki chicken, dumplings, etc. I am definitely not a food snob, but I like well-prepared food with a variety of flavors - and especially if in an unassuming and comfortable place like this. We especially like the crispy yellow tail maki, the arctic... More

This is our new favorite spot for salmon sashimi and spicy tuna or salmon rolls. The prices are reasonable, and we love that after you spend $25, you get a free roll when dining in. We've taken advantage of this a few times. We thoroughly enjoy the spicy rolls, and the california rolls are pretty average. The restaurant is a... More
