Food has attention to detail. I don't eat sushi but I've heard this is some of the best, made any way you like it. I normally order a beef dish and have never been disappointed with food quality. Very tasty and served hot and fresh. Not a fast experience so a great place for a relaxed dinner with friends.

We have visited this establishment many times. While it is advertised as a Japanese restaurant, the Korean food is what we would recommend. The Japanese and Thai dishes are average at best but the Korean dishes are some of the best in northwest Ohio (ok, NW ohio is not known for great Korean food but having moving here from an area with great Korean restaurants this place isn't bad). Try the bibimbap with teriyaki chicken, quite good.

This restaurant came recommended to us, and it was definitely a winner. The fish on our sushi was very fresh. The sushi was tasty and attractive looking made by Dai, the owner. Sushi for two of us was $35. I highly recommend Uraku. We plan on going back for Thai soon.

We have visited this restaurant about once every two weeks for several months. Obviously we and friends find it most satisfying. I am bewildered by the negative reviews about the service and the owner. It is as if we were all dining at different restaurants. The prices are lower than found in similar Toledo restaurants; the owner is cordial and he will advise you on which sushi on hand he regards as best and those he sees as of lesser quality. The service is slow at crowded times, however. The Thai food is good according to one in our party, but the other four of us prefer the Japanese. The place is small and the ambiance is cozy--one can sit at the sushi bar or a table. One drawback for some might be the absence of alcohol, but you can BYOB and be stashed away in a section that is closed off from the main dining area and drink legally. If you have a yen for Asian food Uraku is worth a try.
