I was surpised to wait 30+ minutes at 2 o'clock on a Saturday but took it as a good sign. It's a small restaurant and tightly packed but the food was worth the wait. Service was very fast and efficient. We all got the buffet- a steal at $13.99. There was a wide variety of delicious sushi and they kept... More

Lived in Montgomery County for 15+ years and have been everywhere from Germantown to Bethesda. This is the best sushi out there. They're known for their lunch buffet (which is great) but I really recommend ordering carry out. The atmosphere is for mass-eating, while the food is fabulous and maybe best spent in your own place. The custom rolls are... More

Awesome food, great price (only 13$ per person). Good sushi buffet and also great complements like pork, tofu and vegetables.

They have buffet for lunch. The Sushi is really good. For a fair price, you can eat as many delicious sushi as possible. They also have other dishes sells separately, the boat-ship one looks very nice. But it is a little bit huge, so bring your friends together to enjoy it. We went there several times for good sushi, but... More

And that's the problem. The sushi and other Japanese dishes are all of excellent quality, and the prices are quite reasonable. Presentation, of course, is spectacular. Put it all together and it spells w-a-i-t. Even at lunch, you can expect a 15 - 20 minute wait unless you get there early. But is it worth it? Oh, yeah.

We go for the buffet but have really enjoyed the regular sushi a lot. Good prices too. Gets very busy at lunchtime.

The decor is not why you come to Yuraku, it's the excellent sushi/sashimi and other dishes. The portions are quite large and quality of the fish is first rate. The seared salmon belly appetizer is a great way to start the meal. I usually go with the sashimi regular or if I'm really hungry the sashimi deluxe. Fabulous!

I was never a sushi fan until my friend brought me here. Now I crave it. Love their loaded menu with so many options. I typically get carry out but its a great place to dine during off peak hours.
