SImply the best sushi around

The best sushi we have ever eaten in the DC area (and out). A wonderfully run restaurant with simply the best sushi and sashimi. We have tried most of the menu and it is all fabulous!

We visit this restaurant pretty often, twice a month. whenever we get visitors, we always take them here for dinner. Compare with other Japanese restaurants in Germantown and nearby cities, Yuraku offers very fresh, tender, tasty and Huge slice... More

This is a small restaurant in a strip mall that does a booming business in sushi. I have visited several times now and have not been disappointed. There is an all-you-can-eat buffet except on Sundays but even with regular pricing a typical roll is below $10-12. The waitstaff is all Asian as is most of the clientele, the fish is... More

During lunch hours they have a wonderful buffet selection, good quality excellent value. Be aware around 12:30 some waiting takes place (around 10 minutes).

I've had various personal and professional lunches at Yuraku in Germantown MD and the Sushi is very good. The restaurant itself is quite small but very quaint. I highely recommend getting there by 11:30AM for lunch since the lunch time crowd fills up fast.

You'll find this deceptively plain on the outside Japanese restaurant located in a small strip mall along Frederick Road (a.k.a. Route 355). It is nicer in the dining room. For just $13.95, you can get all you can eat a lunch buffet including a wonderful selection--sushi rolls, sushi, tempura, as well as salad and other more mainstream "American" type selections....

I am not a big sushi eater, but was pleasantly surprised by the lunch buffet that had such a wide variety of sushi and other items including tempura, spring rolls, cellophane noodles, salmon and shrimp. Lunch is crowded and there is often a wait, but well worth the $14. I'll be back and bringing some friends too.

At the rate and volume this place sells its fish, I wouldn't be surprised that the next fish served on my plate was just literally netted out of the tank, fighting for its dear life, smashing its to tail to wallop the chef hand that is about to fillet it alive. That's not pure exaggeration to describe the freshness of... More
