We had one of the tables where food is cooked in front of you. My teen and preteen grandchildren loved this place, they enjoyed the chef's show and although they are picky eaters they scarfed down the vegetables, rice and chicken. I found the food ordinary, not bad but also not interesting: I thought it was blandly seasoned and my... More

This is the best place for sushi in Jacksonville. Besides sitting at the sushi bar, we regularly call in and pick up our order. They have high quality product... the kind that melts in your mouth. The hibachi tables are fun if you have a group but prepare to wait on weekends because its a very popular place on the... More

This place was delicious! The parking lot was so packed we had to park and walk a distance from elsewhere but it was worth it. Very clean, very tasty and very friendly. It's a shame the bar nearby takes up the whole parking lot! There's so much space inside you probably won't have a wait. It's everything you expect from... More

We originally intended to try out iPho in the same plaza, but since my husband said he took a co-worker there in the past and their pho wasn't good, we decided to try this place out instead, considering the time we dined was 8:30, and iPho closes at 9, I was concerned about being served leftovers. Hence, this was our... More

This place is exactly what you expect for Japanese food. Same meal as every other place. Same prices. My only complaint was they shoved 11 people into one table where 9 should have been. Would recommend if you are looking for Japanese food in this area. Didn't need a reservation, just walked in and was seated immediately.

Stopped here for dinner on a Monday night. Place was busy but not packed. We did not have to wait for a table. I ordered the spicy salmon roll and the scallop and teriyaki steak combo. The food and the show were good. The lobster sauce was good, but I was disappointed in the steak sauce. It was very salty... More

Unfortunately, this restaurant has dropped in almost all areas. Service is okay, room is quite dark (I wonder why) and the chef was just going through the motions. Not very engaging or entertaining. Food was okay but they use way to much butter and just tons of salt. Sad to see a fun place slip so much

In my opinion, this is the best Japanese Steak House In Jacksonville. I have special dietary issues and the staff and chef were able to produce a wonderful meal for me. My husband was happy too, as finally we have found an other restaurant we can go to that both of us can enjoy ourselves and have a great meal.

We love Daruma. This time like always we come here after the Florida and Georgia football game. The food was great. Our waitress was very nice. Sushi was good. Service was also good. I would've given this place 5 stars, but our chef was really lame. He did cook very well, but he did no tricks and seemed very shy.... More
