We were on our way to a concert and thought we would pop in for a quick bite. Some of the tables were dirty from previous guests and the barman was seemingly very busy. We waited our turn to be told how busy they were...More

When in Byron we will always try to get to Federal (around 1/2 an hour or so from Byron Bay). Doma is always busy and the product is very good. Whether it be the sushi or the burgers the meals are great. Pricing is generally...More

We had a large group on a busy day, and opted for a mixed platter at $30, containing 7 very modest sized sushi. It was good quality, but nothing I can't get for much less at my local joint. The edmame was good though, and...More

There is one reason why there is often a queue at Doma cafe - terrific Japanese food set in the Byron Hinterland. Had the lunch box as well as some salmon. Seriously good and worth the scenic drive to get there

We arrived about an hour prior to Doma's closing time and in the middle of what can be said to be a torrential downpour. Informed that the electricity had failed (apparently not an uncommon event in Federal), the staff outlined from the menu what was...More
