“Wow...simply WOW! A hidden jem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

I was quiet skeptical because I have never heard of this Japanese place however after going I was wowed! Great service, warm friendly atmosphere and FABULOUS food! Not your standard Japanese/ Sushi place...no sushi sold here. What they do have is a great rice bowl and amazing seaweed salad! I will be a frequent visitor!

“Great rice bowl!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

My daughter took me to Don's last week and I was pleasantly surprised. The rice bowl is a good value if you come with a big appetite; you won't leave hungry. It's served in a piping hot stone bowl which sits on a wooden tray. Don't touch the bowl! The food is still cooking when they bring it to you so keep it stirred or the rice on the bottom will scorch. Both of our entrees were cooked perfectly and the available sauces complimented them nicely.

The service was good although the waitress did not go out of her way to make us feel welcome or valued.

I will go back to Don's. Recommended!

“Wonderful Homemade Noodles!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

This place is very unique and authentic! The owners are absolute sweethearts! They gave my younger brother cookies and delivered wonderful service. Seating can be limited but the hot bowls and noodles are incredible! I recommend any dish and love how they bring you Ice Cream at the end for dessert.

“LOVE THIS PLAVE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

I've been going to Don for years now and it is by far one of my favorite places in greensboro! They serve Korean/Japanese cuisine. The food here is delicious and its a great value, as most dishes are under $10. Plus, they give a little scoop of ice cream after the meal. The owners are super friendly and I would highly recommend this place whether you're a local or just visiting!

“Great rice bowl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Came into this place after hearing about it on Facebook and had a great experience. It was around 4:30 so it wasn't very busy. I ordered the teriyaki chicken rice bowl with extra vegetables as well as spring roll appetizer for the table. The sauce served with the spring rolls was boldly ketchup flavored but the rolls were crisp and yummy. The food is served in a hot earthenware bowl and be warned...do not dig in immediately no matter how good it looks! White sauce provided.
