We love Daruma Japanese Steakhouse! The chef's are all great and friendly. The soup and salad are wonderful and our 11 year old loves the vegetables. We have never had a bad meal here and visit often.

Friendly staff, clean facility and great food. My sangria was delicious and the sushi was awesome. There was quite a crowd by 515. So it must be a popular place!!

Well, she ain't much to look at...but the food was quite good. This is a very worn-out Japanese restaurant with several dining options in a darkened, tired environment. That said, if you can forget about your surroundings, it serves very, very good food...with outstanding service....More
