Been there for dinner, nice typical japanese sushi restaurant with basic furniture (japanese style). Very friendly service and amazing food. Try the sushi volcano - never had better sushi (and I had a lot all over the world). Wakame sald - yummi. Reasonnable price. Excellent...More

After visiting many similar places around Washington DC and witnessed that over the years some of them started to decline in quality, but some of them gained new customers and Yuraku is one of them. First thing I thought when we entered: "it's packed!" It...More

I'd experienced the sushi and sashimi of this restaurant at a party, but it took me two years to get there after that. I wasn't disappointed. The quality of the sushi on the buffet greatly exceeds the quality at other buffets I've experienced.

This is my second visit to Yuraku. Honestly, had I remembered I had been there before, I wouldn't have gone again. I don't know what it is about it, really, but I don't like their rolls very much. I'm generally a fan of specialty Maki...More

The sushi was quite good pretty surprising considering the outside did not look good it was pretty crowded inside which is usually a good sign

Sushi was super fresh. The service was so nice and very quick turn around time. We ordered a chef's choice sushi/sashimi/roll platter for 6 in addition to 5 specialty rolls and waited not even 15mins for everything to be served! Even though the food came...More

Fish was incredibly fresh, food prepared quickly. Don't let its simple exterior deceive you!! This is a true gem and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a sushi restaurant in the area.
