I recently wrote a review about the sushi boats. I thought I might mention their soups too. It is getting colder. Nothing like hand made Asian noodle soup. I like the sea food they have others. I have ordered them many times one soup is a lot for one person and can possibly be for two. Always a consistent product... More

I started buying their sushi at a local Asian market and that and recommendations of friends led me to their main restaurant. Now is is my preferred takeout sushi place. The fish is always fresh, the portions are on the large side, and the prices are reasonable.

I'd rate sushi for 3.5 star and thai for 2.5 star. First of all, this is a neighborhood eatery, nothing fancy or romantic. The sushi is fresh and I think take-out for lunch has the best value. Compared with other sushi places nearby, such as Yoyogi sushi at Kentland, Rainbow has similar quality, better sushi rice, and fewer varieties. Thai... More

We ordered two boats (about 34 pieces per boat). You can specify which pieces you want. I recommend the eel along with octopus, shrimp, crab, tuna, white tuna, red clams, etc. They make the sushi right in front of you so its always fresh. We have been coming here for over 15 years and they have never disappointed us. They... More

Nothing fancy or flashy here. Good sushi and terriyakki for carry out or for a very casual eat in meal (I think more geared for carry out)

I have often walked by this restaurant. My husband suggested we try it and I am glad we did. The sushi is sooo fresh and tasty and is made right in front of you. For only 50 cents more, you can request brown rice, which is my preference. At my request, the Pad Thai was made just the way I... More

They serve such a tiny bit of food! Just ridiculous. Staff members are racist and low class. Seriously not worth it, they just happen to be one of the few Germantown restaurants.

Too greedy and just rude. I wouldn't want to loose a customer but keep and gain more, there just money hungry and cheapskates!

I have walked by Rainbow Shushi countless times over the years and never gave it a thought. But we decided to try something new and we are glad we did. Walking in the place is clean and bright. Small but comfortable and the staff smiling and warm. We ordered our food which was a varied lot. Tuna Shashimi, Tempura Vegitibles,... More

Had lunch here. No crowd - got me wondering if food turnover (freshness) was a problem. Simple decor, no fancy frills but food quality was very good. Sushi an sashimi selections were excellent. Also have hot foods - my kids love the salmon teriyaki. Excellent service too.

Thank CCBK
