    Sushi Damo is a lovely restaurant, whether you sit inside or out. The food is wonderful, with a nice variety of rolls, appetizers, cocktails, and several good options for the person who doesn’t like sushi. I’ve had the harabi shrimp and calamari salad at least 3 times each, and my friend ordered the sea bass entree twice, and we’ve enjoyed the dishes each time, with the kitchen demonstrating their consistency. They are also very accommodating. My server verified that the bartender could make my lychee martini “weaker” as I requested, or “not as strong,” as it was reported back, with the added information that he wanted to be sure it maintained it’s balance. It was perfection: deliciously delicate, subtly sweet, I wanted another one! When the Maryland-Cali roll came out with a mayo mixed into the crab that wasn’t described on the menu and that I couldn’t eat, she took it back to the kitchen without issue, then helped me find another new roll to try, minus any mayo. She was so pleasant and attentive, it was like being hosted by a friend — a friend with an amazing sushi chef and cook in the kitchen! Also on our table: field greens salad, sea bass entree, lobster tempura roll, and brown rice hot tea.

    I’ve been coming here for over a decade. It really holds up. Its been about 2 years since I came in after having a bad experience here during quarantine. Yesterday was my first time back. The staff are noticeably younger, and it seemed a few people were shadowing or training others. My service was good. The music however… when I come to an establishment such ad this I don’t expect to hear vulgar language and expletives during my dining experience. Unfortunately about 10 minutes after seating the music changed and it was not pleasant and I had to apologize to the person I was taking a call with for the raunchy music in the background. Other than this place continues to hold up after all this time.

    I understand that the aftermath of covid resulted in slower service. However, not once did our server stop at our table to see how our food was, if we needed anything else or if we were happy with our food. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is lovely. unfortunately the food is mediocre and the service is not great.

    they will nickle and dime you without telling you. Very disappointed after I got my bill. I was charged $1 every time my kids asked for a sauce (gosh, we have to start paying for ketchup like Europe lol and no, we didn't order ketchup but in a Japanese restaurant it was like ketchup). the waitress was a little dull too.

    The food wasn’t what it has been on the past. My sushi hardly had any fish in it and tasted like blow torch. It was mostly rice. My tomago just tasted like cold egg. I probably won’t be dining here again.

    We have been going to Sushi Damo for years. Lately their wait staff has proven to be very inexperienced (but very nice). We have had our main dishes delivered before our appetizers during both of our last two visits, the last time after our server forgot all about them. This is getting frustrating. While the food and ambiance are quite good, we are at the point of looking for a replacement restaurant that has better service.

    I can’t get enough of the specialty rolls at Sushi Damo! The recipes are unconventional and full of surprises. The Twilight Roll is my favorite go-to, but I’ve never had anything there I didn’t like. Also, I’m picky about miso soup flavors but love theirs.

    Excellent menu with some really creative, non-traditional roll options. I appreciated how they were able to mark the menu with items that were out of stock so I could order accordingly. Portions were a little small for the price but I suppose that’s another covid-era change that’s here to stay. Service was friendly and knowledgeable but they are visibly understaffed — like so many places these days, diners should bring patience and be reasonable with their expectations. The meal was worth the wait.

    We haven't been out a lot during the pandemic -- we came here for Valentine's Day 2022, and really enjoyed it - it wasn't overly crowded, our server was courteous and kind, the food was fresh and delicious, and less expensive that I was prepared to spend for the quality and experience. We ordered from the pre-fix menu, but saw other orders go out that looked really tasty too -- it had us wondering why we don't go here more -- maybe we will. The only minor thing about the place is no fault of the restaurant: the ceilings are almost too high, which makes a cozy feeling less likely -- don't get me wrong -- it's a nice space to be in, but despite all the right decorative choices to cozy it up with warm, dark colors, it's more comfortable than cozy.

    The rolls are too small for the price. There are a decent number of pieces but very small. I would expect larger rolls for the price of the specialty rolls. The soup and salad are decent value. Overall the place is good but make rolls larger!

    Our server did a very good job considering how understaffed they were, which is not unique to Sushi Damo. The food is good-to-very good... - The Tempura was a bit greasy - The rolls were quite good I lived in Japan for 5 years and regularly go to Japanese restaurants. It wasn't a lot of money ($1), but I asked for a little more ginger and was charged for it. I have probably been to hundreds of sushi restaurants around the world and have never been charged for extra ginger (and, they didn't even give that much more...3-4 slivers). That left a 'bad' taste in my mouth. I would recommend Sushi Damo with the following caveats: - There is better Tempura other places (or maybe they just had an off night) - Sushi was good, but a little on the expensive side. Yuraku has better and more fish for less money but the restaurant is definitely not as pretty

    Limited vegetarian options made it a poor experience for us. Sushi chef refused to leave out the fish and make a tofu only roll -- which is up to him. Some of the food was good, some only average. Noted in the reservations that it was my daughter's birthday and they didn't do anything special -- again, that's up to them but contributed to us not really diggin' the venue. It's a nice enough place but if you're a vegetarian, it's your birthday and you have a craving for some sushi, I'd avoid Sushi Damo, otherwise it's all good.

    resturant not crowded, but noise was quite loud even at a table in an alcove. Rolls and sashimi were OK, but freshness not up to what we have seen here before. Fish should not have fishy aroma-- this did. Not strong but definite. Appetizers - lamb chops and shrimp bites were excellent as were the drinks. Like everywhere now, not enough serves.

    They have amazing sushi which is why my family and I decided to come. We know they’re known for terrible service but tonight was extra slow. It took an HOUR to get our sushi. But people who didn’t order sushi got their food first so by the time sushi came they just watched us eat. It was a ridiculous amount of wait time and they should’ve disclosed that they only had one sushi chef so it would be slow. But still. How can you function as a restaurant in Rockville town center with an hour wait time for food lmaoooo....
