I've been going to Yuraku for years, literally. I became very close with Mr. and Mrs. Lee and have always enjoyed dining here. The quality of fish is very difficult to find at any other sushi place in the Washington area and beyond. The lunch...More

I have not tasted anything better than this. So far the best. No wonder, this place is always packed with people waiting outside. Any order you place, waiting time is 20 min. And the front cash register space is always so crowded, you have to...More

I have been coming here for years but their lunch buffet is by far the best. The place is small and it's packed and a waitlist. It's worth the wait. Not only the sushi is fresh, other buffet items are also high quality dishes both...More

We came early at 11am. The place was almost full. The buffet spread was very good. A lot of different sushi to choose from. There were tempura, soba and cooked dishes.. A bowl of miso soup was provided. For USD 14.95. It was very good...More
