I've been to a lot of Sushi restaurants so I was really looked forward to the #3 rated restaurant in Germantown. It was definitely busy so had a certain buzz but sadly from there it failed to impress. The Sushi rolls just didn't inspire and were far too large. I was disappointed in the general upkeep and cleanliness: dust on... More

My husband and I come here often for their freshly prepared sushi and house hand rolls. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is lively. You may have to wait a while on Fridays and Saturdays but it's well worth it.

Yuraku NEVER disappoints us! Their food is amazing. I just wished they took reservation because the waiting in line to get in is no fun.

This is our favorite sushi restaurant in the Germantown Gaithersburg Kent lands area. The sushi is always great. They are usually busy so you might have to wait at peak hours but I've never had to wait very long. And it's worth it. I've been there many times and always had a great meal.

We went there a few weeks ago and found it was very crowded for a Sunday night. Afte we sat down and ordered our drinks,we were given small bowls of edamame, carrots and pickles. We ordered entrees that included miso soup and a salad on the side but we only got our entrees and were still charged for the sides.... More

I've frequented the restaurant for lunch for about 5 years. The sushi is always fresh. It is a great value for the price (about $15 for the buffet).

Yuraku was a 'TripAdvisor' pick as I heard there were fantastic lunch spots in Germantown. The lunch rush was busy and overwhelmingly non-English speakers so I thought that a good sign. Seated solo at the sushi bar, it was fascinating to see all the creations heading out to the tables. The buffet is crowded, sushi unidentified by signs, and I... More

I been frequenting this establishment for the last 17 plus years and it never disappoints! Sonny Lee is a hidden gem in the sushi bar world. While it's ALWAYS crowded it's worth the wait! Triple Salmon, double Spicy Tuna and tuna trio top my list. For a once and a lifetime meal sit at the bar and ask sonny to... More

Combo sushi tray off the menu on a Sunday was decent, so went back for buffet on Friday. Quantity, sure, but quality poor with cheap ingedients. Sides tasteless, salty, crowed, marginal cleanliness. Three prices...inaccurate on menu and advertised, actual price, and cash price. I would have rated lower, but the dinner experience decent. Will not be going back, but may... More

Yuraku is the best sushi restaurant in the area. There is a reason that there is always a line of people waiting outside and inside the restaurant. The sushi is creative, fresh and huge. The rolls are reasonably priced for the value you get. The sushi buffet is an excellent value and you get a huge selection of rolls and... More
