Ok local restaurant

Nice little corner establishment. Nothing to write home about. That said, the food was ok. You can bring your own bottle of wine (looks like most people do). Again, it was fine - but nothing special.

We ordered two rolls (the Thai Peanut roll is highly recommended) which were fine. We ordered a sides of Shumai, which seemed a little doughy to me, and the Korean BBQ (Kalbi), which was on the tough side. My sister's piece had a little grizzle as well. Stick to the sushi here.

The food at Daruma is pretty good. Their sushi rolls are well made and the Korean BBQ is fantastic. The prices are reasonable, but a bit on the higher side. We enjoy visiting this location because it is very clean and rarely over-crowded.

It is so dark in there. The food is okay, but nothing special, and it's expensive. We had to use our phones for light t read the menu.
