We went in Sunday early evening - they have $1 drafts and $1.50 sushi. We opted to sit in the Hibachi area even though we were not asked where or what we wanted - I had to redirect her as she was sitting us in normal dining area. Communication was a bit challenging for our waitress - but, she managed... More

Also the snapper was definitely tilapia. When... More

If you like sushi, you can have all-you-can-eat for weekday lunch at Daruma. If you prefer something else, they also have hibachi, teriyaki and tempura. You should be able to find something on the menu to satisfy your tastes. The sushi is excellent. The hibachi is very well prepared. It's a great way to spend lunch in Daphne.

They offer a two for twenty Monday thru Thursday it includes soup and salad and two rolls it's hard to beat. They prepare the food right in front of you if... More

As I say in the title, it's a good "American" Japanese restaurant, with crispy, creamy and cheesy rolls. It's a little bit bizarre but I like it.

Best on Eastern Shore by far. Short waits for take out. Seems to be some turnover in wait staff but service has always been good. Go for all you can eat sushi or $1 on Sundays.

We went there for a birthday dinner with about ten people. The service was excellent, the food was wonderful and cooked before your eyes. The portions are very large.
