Right by the centre of Helsinki is Japanese restaurant called Domo. Small, cosy, very Japanese place with friendly staff. They seemed to speak English only. We have four different starters and two Miso soups with pork and mushrooms. Great dishes all of them and served in very classy form. Will come here again.

Two of us had a plate of sushi & sashimi (30 pieces) and it was different from your average sushi&sashimi set. Sashimi portions were very small, but very tasty at the same time. Sushi part of the plate had some new flavours and new unrecognised vegetables in the mix. It was definitely not bad, but different. The place is nice... More

If you are looking for fine dining , this is not it. A neighbourhood casual Japanese style dining run by some extremely friendly Chinese. The soya source has a fantastic smell. You should ask about their soya source and you will break a lot of ice. Go for simple dishes and you would go away happy.

Living in the neighborhood, Domo is the place to go when looking for good quality Japanese food and value for money. Maybe not the most romantic choice, but clean and tidy with pleasant atmosphere and friendly service. Recommended for casual lunch or dinner and sushi.

I took one of their best set of sashimi (30 pieces) and miso soup. I didn't like it a lot but it had tuna in it which is rare in Helsinki. Service was quite nice.

One of the best japenese we went to. Prime quality products and very rich menu. Good service and value for money. Do not expect a great decoration though. Anyway who needs that when you eat so well?

Orders taken and served fast with polite manners. Tasty food but perhaps a bit too small portions and rice bowls could also be more generous. Sashimi sliced pretty thick but still being delicious. Definitely would go again😊

At least so far. Good menu with plenty of other things than just sushi (which I did not try this time). And very reasonable prices. Re-visit needed.
