“Eat here!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Stopped in for a few appetizers tonight. The restaurant is nicely decorated, great lighting, comfortable furniture thats in good condition. Sat at the sushi bar so we got to see them prepare everything. The food is fresh, their prep area is clean. They were extremely busy but we were able to sit quick and were greeted quickly and served very promptly. Our server was very attentive even though she was doing a million other things. Would recommend highly what we had: goyza, spicy salmon roll & tempura mussels! We will definitely be back for dinner!

“Top Teppan”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Very attractive restaurant, many cooking tables nicely arranged, maybe 15 or so, great bar with happy hour, lounge for dining and live music , we came for the Teppan cooking. Usual fun with great chef and attentive server. Quality cuts of meat, chicken and shrimp, early bird specials and summer coupons. Very busy for Thursday in the off season. This isn't fine dining but fun dining with a flair. It will be one of the most attractive Teppan restaurants you'll visit. Yes, sushi too.

“Great food but service was slow at times and rushed at others”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We tried DaRuMa for the first time this past weekend. Another couple had been there previously and liked it, so we went with them. Once there we were greeted and seated promptly by a very pleasant hostess. Since there were only four of us we were seated in one of the main rooms at a table capable of handling ten people. Our drink orders were taken immediately but then things came to a halt. After a while it became obvious that nothing more was going to happen until all, or at least the majority, of the seats at our table were filled. Once that happened we ordered appetizers and our meal. As soon as the chef started preparations there was no stopping things. Appetizers and salads were served almost at the same time. Then the meal was completed and served before we had time to finish the salads. The show was good, but everything was too rushed at this point. And as soon as it looked like you were done with your meal the dishes were taken away. Without a doubt they wanted to get another group seated as soon as possible. Everything served was excellent, I would certainly go there again. And I must note that the manager visited the table twice to see how we were enjoying ourselves. It was probably my fault for not asking him to slow things down. On on next visit I will certainly make it a point to do so so the entire meal and chef's performance can be enjoyed completely.

“Great Sushi Bar”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Nice for an quiet evening out at the Sushi bar. The sushi chefs are great about letting you know what is super fresh. The atmosphere is hip but not pretentious.
