We love Japanese food, and having lived in Japan for some time, we are especially impressed when ALL of the flavors during a meal bring back our fond memories. The chefs at Yuraku had us reminiscing with every bite. Not only were our taste buds excited, but so was our wallet. The sashimi was generous in size, and we could... More

My husband and drove to Germantown to try this Japanese restaurant. It was about a 45 minutes drive, but definitely worth it. We ordered to share: Vegetable tempura - light and crisp; pieces of sweet potatoes, broccoli, eggplant, onion, pumpkin Seaweed Salad - it came like a little mountain, but as we dug in, we realized it was elevated in...

We go here once a week and sit at the bar. Sonny Lee is the man. And every one there is incredible. The waitresses, the chefs. All of em! Seaweed salad, salad with ginger dressing and an array of sushi is what we get every time we go. I can recommend a ton of sushi but I am not kidding... More

We used to eat here quite often, but the place has really gone down hill. The sidewalk outside the entrance is black from dirt and the glass entry doors are filthy and have not been cleaned in quite some time. Don't take a good look at the floor, kitchen, walls, tables etc. or you might be worried for your health.... More

We love the food here. It is always a bit crowded due to the buffet crowd. We don't go for the buffet. We choose instead to order off the menu and are never disappointed. Food is authentic and tasty.

By far, my favorite Sushi Bar! If you want a quiet evening with your date, don't come here! This place is packed! Every night, year after year... always crowded! But that means you'll have great food.... always! Enjoy!

There really isn't any other place to get sushi anywhere else in the area. If not here you will have to drive 20+ minutes. Their lunch buffet is crazy busy and u normally see lines out the door. The sushi is good. We never had anything else besides sushi.

If you like Sushi this is the place to get it. The fish is fresh and they have a hugh variety of Sushi. It's just a little restaurant and it is always busy. If you go,try the weekdays and you shouldn't have to wait. Best seat in the house is the bar. Go and Enjoy!

We have been to this place a few times. First of all, get a reservation or get there early. The place gets fill up really quick and a line waiting outside the door. Ingredients are fresh, which is important for Japanese cuisine. We had sashimi, sushi, and things from the kitchen like noodles and others. They tasted good, but more... More
