    I'm from Brooklyn, nyc and this was hands down the best sushi I've ever had.. the waitresses gave us a bunch of free appetizers which was awesome too. can't wait to come back here!

    You can't go wrong with anything on the menu! They have a buffet for lunch & if you can sit at the sushi counter for dinner you have it made. Be ready for a wait because this place is so popular.

    There is a reason why there is so many pictures for this place. BEST place for sushi. Can't beat the price or the quality. I cannot go anywhere else. Rice to seafood ratio is like 1:2.

    Everything! So many creative rolls and fantastic traditional sushi. The prices are also some of the best and they even come around and give random snacks to nosh on while you wait

    Fun place, great service! The fish is average for sashimi grade. FAR from authentic Ginza style sushi, what do you expect for Germantown, MD? Overall 5/10 SPAM Slices. Lots of other great dishes.

    A great variety of some of the freshest sushi I have ever had. The weekday all you can eat buffet is a great bargain, but you need to get there early for a seat.

    The wait is absolutely worth it!! :D The BEST sushi indeed! And don't believe people who knows a better sushi place - they don't know what they're talking about until they try Yuraku :)

    Calamari roll and Three Amigo rolls were my absolute favorite! Depending on their mood, they'll go around and randomly give you free samples of some various sushi (about 2 pieces only).

    Best sushi in the area. Freshest fish, best prices. Try the tuna fiesta salad, the what a match roll, and the miso-glazed, broiled Chilean sea bass. Trust the chefs, they are excellent.

    Try the Lobster - Complimentary! I guess they saw me taking pics and they brought it out to us! Although I couldn't eat, I was told very tender, sweet, soft, and tasty.

    Try the Assorted Sushi And Sashimi Platter - My biggest dilemma is how to put it into a square shot! Otherwise, it's been always tasty!!! Love it!!

    The sunomono salad and nabe udon in ON POINT. Great taste for a great price. Many options - sushi, sashimi, salads, soups, grilled meats, etc.

    Wait is long but worth it. Salmon nachos are out of this world. So was the spicy honey white tuna. Sushi was so fresh. Stuffed ourselves to the gills.

    Better make reservations on weekends or expect to wait for more than an hour for a table. It's sooo worth the wait though. Yuraku (301) 515-7448

    Spicy rolls are actually spicy, which is nice. Fish was very fresh, but restaurant was filled with fruit flies. : /
