All the food looks great, one of the best looking buffets i have seen. Large selection of food, very clean place. Now about the taste - not bad but not great. Nothing to really complain about but somewhat generic taste. Looks much better than it tastes. Looked so great o. I was a little disappointed when. I didn't get great... More

My hubby and son love sushi. When we moved here we tried them and they are hooked! I enjoy all the non-sushi food! Serves is good too! Been here twice and so far we are happy with this place.

This isn't your typical Asian buffet. The sushi is all-you-can eat and included in the price. Sushi chefs are constantly rolling, so the sushi and sashimi is fresh, varied, and attractive. If you request it, they will make hand rolls for you. In addition to the sushi bar, they also have a Mongolian grill, fresh seafood, and a decent hot... More

My family and I have been going to Dao since they've opened. The quality has been consistently good. For the price this is the best sushi anywhere. The food is fresh, restaurant is clean and the sushi and habachi chefs are always happy to take an order.

This is the place to go if you want to eat and eat and eat again Japanese food. Good food. Good service. Prices are affordable. They have a lot of variety, drinks and beer. Parking and big dinning area.

My husband and I went to dinner at 5 PM on the night before New Year's Eve. The food here was OK but my concern was that the hot food wasn't hot enough and didn't look fresh. If the management doesn't want to replenish between lunch and dinner then they should close in between. I don't think we will return.

Great price to go sample different sushi and rolls. They will fix any sushi rolls you ask them to! Service is good & people are friendly.

We celebrated my wife's birthday here. All of the various choices were very good. Even the sushi was great. The value for the dollar is very good and does not break the bank. We'll probably back when on the area again.

I loved it. First of all, I loved the price. Secondly, bearing in mind the price, I'd say that this is great option for anybody loving Sushi (and a few hot Asian dishes too), provided you are not seeking high-end Sushi. The best in the area for sure. I went for lunch so they did not have the lobster but... More
