Best local sushi

This is a great place to get very tasty sushi. The selection was pretty broad, fish was fresh and tasty. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The wine selection is not good. The place was packed when we visited so reservations may be in order. My only criticism is portion size... read more

Sushi buffet with people sneezing and coughing on your food. The selection is ok but the place is crowded and the servers rush to pay and go. Sushi is not high quality but that's expected for a buffet. The food options are ok but again it's buffet food people.

We wanted to find a place near our hotel and Yuraku was it! The place isn't too big, perhaps about 15 or so tables. For our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) we ordered the Sashimi Regular (boat), Chicken Teriyaki, Chirashi, 2 Toro Rolls and Calamari Tempura Roll. We were so full, we couldn't finish our meals. The wait... More

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!

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

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.
