“Raku An Asian Dining &Sushi”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Always very crowded, a reservation at dinner is a must. I go for their Bento Box - a lovely mixture of tastes and sights. The sushi is fresh and quite good as is everything that I've tried on the menu. They also do a very nice beef dish that comes with your choice if sauce.

“One of Bethesda's best”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

This place can get crowded so make a reservation! If you can get here during a restaurant week, don't miss out. Try the Korean rib appetizer with kimchee, Chilean sea bass dish is great, and their sushi is consistently good. In warmer weather try to get an outside table for good people watching.

“Lots more than sushi”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have been going to Raku for many years though mostly for weekend lunches - dinner reservations can be tough since it is very popular. We enjoy sitting at the bar and watching sushi preparation. Prefer non-sushi options especially after eating sushi in Hawaii.
