Busy lunch crowd, but worth the variety and generous selections including soup. A sushi smorgasbord..

It's a rare opportunity to relish Japanese food in India. Thus this small place remains my favorite during my visits to U.S.A. That it was crowded even after 9 p.m. on a weekday, speaks for the quality of its food and services. The shrimp tempura and the fish sushi rolls we ordered were superb. They even served a complimentary house... More

Do yourself a favor and check this place out. It is on the corner of a strip center so the location doesn't look too appealing but don't let that discourage you. This is hands down the best sushi in the area. We used to travel an hour just to eat here and consider ourselves fortunate to only have to travel... More

This is my sushi spot in Germantown. They got a very nice lunch buffet for great food items on top of the served sushi. The dinner option sushi are better than the buffet obviously. I enjoy to go here for a good buffet price with what is served.

The place is old and may not look the cleanest, but it has a huge selection of all you can eat fresh sushi and other Korean / Chinese / Japanese dishes to choose from. Absolutely the best buffet in the area! Always a very busy place yet well worth the wait!

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.

Thank Erin C
