Most of the dishes were so-so highly Americanized pan-Asian cuisine. The nigiri was nicely prepared and tasty as the exception. They were out of soju, the Korean saki-like drink that was listed on the menu. My seafood rice dish was badly overcooked and dried out as if it had been sitting out for some time under a heat lamp. The seafood consisted of large chunks of salmon, scallop, and shrimp that appeared to be thrown on top of the the rice. I did not finish the dish because it was unappetizing. My wife's mushu pork was O.K., but the crepes served with it were served on an open plate rather than coming wrapped or in a closed container as they have been at other establishments. Consequently they were dried out and stiff. Our server was attentive, but was not particularly knowledgeable about several of the dishes we asked about. Our hope is that Dao will improve with effort, but for now we really cannot recommend it.
Server was great. Food tasted very good.
Great food, great prices, great service
Amazing brunch special. Great food for a great price.
Always a pleasure! Wonderful food. Great atmosphere & nice staff.
The waiter was not very good. Didn’t really item to us brought incorrect soup. Had to keep asking for water salt pepper. He was kind just not with it.
Sunday buffet brunch had something for everyone, celebrating a graduation, an anniversary and get together with friends ranging from 8 to 82 ! Kelly provided us with expert
directions , as well as taking care of the ten of us . Thank you Kelly !
Host was very unfriendly. Waitress was really in a hurry to take our order but did not know the menu well. Unfortunately our table was very close to one with loud toddlers. Food was good but waitress was inattentive after taking our order. Restaurant was loud. I doubt we’ll be back.
The food at Dao is great and the service was wonderful! Highly recommend!!
Great gluten free options
We got reservations and had a nice booth. The service was excellent,the portions were generous, and the prices were good, the food was excellent as well. Overall a great date night site.
The food was good as always but the service was horrible. The waitress was very slow from the start and we seemed to have trouble getting her attention. Then she actually lost our order and had to retake it as people around us who ordered after us were already eating. It subsequently took over an hour and a half to get dinner. The manager did give us a discount but didn’t seem to realize just how bad the service was. It’ll be a long time before I return
Their Sunday buffet is always exquisite! Whenever we are in town we make sure to visit.
They have the cleanest, nicest restaurant. The buffet is full of wonderful dishes made with love and care. I would say this is the nicest run Chinese restaurant I have been in. All ages love the food.
Great place, we love Azu and when we found out that they opened another restaurant, we had to try it. We were not disappointed, great food, staff were
amazing and great venue. Vallett parking is a plus.
We enjoyed excellent service from the front door until we said good night! Maria was amazing! Our foods were generous and delicious. The shrimp and lettuce cups were great! We will definitely return to try more dishes!
Great food, and excellent service!
Date night with baby in tow at the last minute. Waitress wasn’t Food was fast and delicious.
The food is great, but our last 4 sittings, the service has been truly slow. I believe it is either the section we are sitting in, the layout of the restaurant or under staffing of wait staff.
Exceptional Sunday buffet
Sushi is amazing!
We had a reservation but arrived early and had no problem getting seated. There was a festival going on outside so the street was closed off and we had to park a ways away. The restaurant is large and not too crowded yet. Our server was awesome! Super friendly and attentive. Sushi was very good and there were some unique choices. The entrees were very tasty as well. We ordered the coconut curry chicken , a pork dish and the fried beef which was my fav!! The atmosphere is casual and nice but not very theemie which I like. I would recommend it and go back again!
Another fantastic experience at Dao!! We had a table of 10 outside and it was perfect. Our server Summer was awesome, very attentive and speedy. We always enjoy our experience here.
Our waitress Jessica was amazing. Prompt and professional. The sushi chef Hugh made us amazing rolls and came out and described the food to us. The manager Masa always comes by. It’s one of the best restaurants in the area hands down.
Warm inside. Small cramped booth for 4. Sushi and dinner order taken at same time. Dinner arrived before sushi so we had to cancel the sushi. Very noisy. There was a "comfort dog" at the table beside us... REALLY?? They fed the dog under the table on restaurant plates!!!! Food was just so so....
I dined here with my son to celebrate his birthday. He loves their honey chicken and I enjoy the sushi. Service was prompt and polite and the waitress delivered his cake after the meal. The portions are ample and the cocktails were well made.
We have eaten here many times and have had great food and service, but it did not happen this night. The service was below average and the food quality was not as it has been. We had to wait a significant amount of time to get drinks and 2 sushi rolls. The rolls looked as though they were not fresh and had to be remade. This is not the quality of food or service I have experienced from Dao and I hope it is not becoming the norm.
The food was excellent, but it was so loud that it was difficult to have a conversation with anyone,
Always a great experience and great food. We love the sushi but this time also went to other parts of the menu. Everything was great.
We have eaten there many times and will continue to do so. As an aside, we almost always follow it it by a cup of frozen yogurt at Newberri. :)
We like Dao and the “private “ area for a larger group of 8. The reason I gave a bit lower on the service was the server seemed a bit off- not bringing small plates for the share appetizer until we asked, then the plates came when we had pretty much finished that course. After that things were fine. I am critical of servers as I was one once 😀
Great food, very reasonably priced. Highly recommend.
Food was excellent. We just seemed to be there for a long time before our order was taken and then it took longer than it should have to get the check. I’ve eaten there twice and it was the same way the first time. Took to long to order and get the check to leave but the food is always phenomenal.
Food was interesting but good. Lots of layered flavors. Not enough rice, desserts were very so, so and quite expensive.
We ordered from the Specialty Entrees. We got the Shrimp Lettuce Wraps and the Peppered Beef dishes.
Unfortunately the sirloin was grisly and tough but the flavor was good. Not peppery at all so not sure if it was seasoned per the menu description. The Shrimp wraps had a very good flavor also but were loaded with bread stuffing. Small shrimp, chopped water chestnuts and lots of bread stuffing. Again not as expected based on the menu. Atmosphere was fun and lively and our cocktails were good. May try again but will order something different and will inquire about MSG.
We had a large group and they accommodated us very well. Our server was fantastic and the food was great. We will definitely be back.
Service was slow, slowest ever in all the visits to the restaurant. Rarely saw our waitress. Salads came out before appetizers. My rice side dish was never delivered. My sauce for the entree was delivered with another's entree. Tempura entree was more like a thick batter than the normal light batter. Pork tonkatsu was dry...but all food had good flavor.
Food is good but quality has gone down. Food had cold spots in the middle drinks took over 20 minutes to arrive. During that time we could see the bartender was behind the bar just chatting away with other workers. I mentioned that and 2 minutes later had my drink. Waiter was great.
Wonderful food, good sushi, great service. M.y first time there but I will be back again
Our first trip there and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity of the food. We ate all we could and then brought home enough food to eat for the next two days!! The sushi was terrific. Our server was phenomenal as was the young lady behind the counter that made our rolls. She even listened (and laughed at) my corny jokes!!
