Great sushi place

Authentic Japanese food, ordered sashimi, sushi, and tempura. Meal came with soup and salad. The food is delicious and fresh. It is affordable for the quality you received. Reminds me of the food you get in Japan. Very crowded but the wait is worth it.

My go-to takeout is here at least every other week. The best, freshest sushi in the area. Portions are large and prices are reasonable. Sometimes they throw in an extra sushi roll for free. Usually it's busy on peak nights, so be prepared to wait or get a reservation.

Good value especially if you go in a group. We usually go in a big group when we go to a sushi restaurant. We have been to many and for the price and selection this was my best restaurant. It's a small place so there's a wait but it's worth it. I recommend ordering the boat if you want a... More

This place has amazing sushi! The place needs renovating- but the sushi is the best I've ever had! And I'm a sushi person. My favorite is the strawberry roll and the spider hand roll. Definitely recommend!

I eat sushi about 5 times a week. This is by far the best sushi I have ever eaten. I'm a raw fish lover and this place has very fresh sushi. I've also tried the Buffett, which is great also. The Buffett is better for rolls. The Negri is very thin sliced. Which I don't like but the rolls are... More

Located in a shopping center, the first appearance can be deceiving. The interior could use an update, but don't let that dissuade you either. I've turned quite a few people on to Yaruku, and they keep coming back, some driving from an hour away to get there. This is my favorite place for sushi. The lunch buffet is a great... More

We went here for the lunch buffet.. yes, a sushi buffet that won't actually give you food poisoning. You have to know the lingo here! We thought the staff was a bit rude, but I guess they just assume everyone knows how to go about eating here (aka that you have to write your name down to at the front... More

I forgot how many times we have been going to this restaurant in the past 1 year. We never disappointed. The Sushi and Sahimi combo boat is definitely the best value in town. It also came with salad, miso soup, grilled salmon jaws ,snack size cucumber/carrots and steam egg. Sashimi is always fresh and we love the variety they put... More

This place is dark, dank and items are not labeled. I waited to eat here once, never again. If I can't see what I am eating, or know what I am eating the meal is not enjoyable.

Every time we go here I have to order the Cowboy special roll. It is DELICIOUS! It does take longer than anything else we usually order (they have to cook the meat) so I found ordering it before you decide on other items helps it come out closer to the rest of the food. Oh and I'm not actually a... More
