Went here during lunch with workmates. The waitstaff was very accomodating as we wanted to sit outside and had a group of 8. They pushed some tables together outside and we all had a great time.

I had a tasty bento box and a beer. Was delicious lunch. Recommeded

It’s crowded and very noisy, but Raku has great sushi. They also have interesting fusion dishes, but honestly, we usually just get the sushi. The fish is very high quality and because of that I tend to order sashimi or the simple nigiri sushi, avoiding the fancier rolls. However, the hamachi/avocado/cucumber roll is delicious and I will order that one again. One great thing about Raku is that they have a gluten-free menu AND actually understand what it means to be really gluten-free. They specify exactly what changes there will be to which rolls (i.e. leave off the sauce, or no fish roe) so that you can decide whether you want that or not. In the summer, they’ve got a great outside area on the sidewalk where you can be part of the large Bethesda crowd in the evening.

We ordered sushi to go on a busy Friday night... we had to wait a little bit but the sushi was delicious! We will be back.

Get the wasabi dynamite roll every time. We also always get the tuna California and the Maguro nigiri. Awesome.
