I have recently moved into the area and came across Domo Sushi, however I have become quite fond of their restaurant. While I realize they are still quite a new business, I have seen quite a few "regulars" who don't have a criticizing word to say about Domo. Because it is only 2 years old, I find it understandable that the restaurant is "empty" at times. It would appear that the business they do have is based on good food and experience as I am sure they do not advertize the restaurant. I feel that the specialty rolls are huge and quite tasty. I also believe that the fish they use is of the highest quality available. The Miso soup is absolutely wonderful and the home-made ginger is an attraction itself.
In regard to the comment about “pounded” beef, I do believe that it is the proper process for Japanese meat, especially Katsu dishes. I am no expert, but I just don’t believe that the fact that the meat was “pounded” signifies it as “poor-quality”. I’ve found that their non-sushi, hot dishes to be quite delectable, the Yaki-Soba most of all.
As for the "non-functioning" sushi belt, I also find it understandable that it is not practical to produce a constant supply of fresh fish when they do not have a steady flow of customers. Simple supply and demand I’m afraid. I could not imagine how much money would be wasted on all of the fish they'd have to toss. Nearly any business associated with fish is quite likely to be expensive, as the product they offer is expensive itself.
I find it so sad that such a wonderful small business has been discredited in such a way. What a success it is that they have survived this long based on merit alone. I deeply commend the owners. I love the food and would recommend the restaurant to anyone.
