Sushi Damo in Rockville, Maryland is proud to offer quality Japanese fare thanks to Executive Chef Takashi Okamura. You will find a wealth of tasty items on the menu, as well as a surprising range of wines and sake. Specialty drinks and cocktails are available, too.
Of course, most come to Sushi Damo for the great food. Some of the tasty appetizers on the main menu include the marinated chicken on skewers, tempura, mango crab towers and the fried oysters. Choose from various types of noodles, as well as entrées that feature chicken, beef, pork, seafood or vegetarian options. Sushi Damo has plenty of sushi options, as well including classic rolls, such as the tuna avocado roll and the California roll.
Had udon and husband had sushi box. Food was good but not great. Service was excellent. Ambiance was relaxing and nice.
We have been Sushi Damo several times and it is always a wonderful dinner and restaurant. The quality of the fish is very high, which is what you want from a sushi restaurant. The sushi & sashimi are served cold (not room temperature), another good sign. Many creative and unique rolls. Good selection of sake too, reasonably priced and higher end in 300 ml and 700 ml bottles. This last time, we went with our 6 & 8 year old children who liked the restaurant, the cushy oversized chairs, and . . .the seaweed salad of all things.
Great sushi! Was actually pretty dead on Wednesday night though I have been here on the weekend and it was a mad house.
Our favorite sushi place in the DC Metro Area - worth the drive. Very fresh fish, creative rolls, good atmosphere.
This was a "different" choice for my late mother's day brunch but perfect for us because we lived in Japan. The sushi is excellent, and we are very picky. I enjoyed the non-traditional rolls and the saki flight.
tasty and fresh sushi. Nice area and excellent service.
The sushi is always delicious and a great combination of flavors. I love the outdoor seating but it'd be better if there was less smoking-- not a good way to enjoy sushi. The prices are also a little crazy for the area, but overall a delicious meal!
The sushi at Sushi Damo is good but not great. You will not find better sushi in a small market like Rockville but there is nothing at Sushi Damo that will prevent real sushi lovers from traveling to a larger market like D.C. or Baltimore for better options. Don't think that getting slightly above average food means paying moderate prices either. With tip I spent $91 on a dinner for two (no alcohol, generous tip, two desserts). This would not give me pause in D.C. or Baltimore but it seemed a bit much for the Maryland suburbs. The locals in Rockville have the money to spend though, so I suppose the prices are understandable. The space is also nice and probably draws a high rental rate, which the owners of the restaurant have to recoup.
A modern styled Japanese restaurant, both tables, booth bench seating as well as lounge comfee chair seating. The house drinks where tastey and mixed well, the sushi tasted fresh and stood out from the frozen junk you see in super markets. Seating was fast, and the waiter was quick to take care of us and have a good conversation. the non-sushi food was fantastic, the calamari was flavorful, not too greasy and was actual tentacles instead of just wedge cuts from a larger organism. Even the soy sauce provided seemed to have a more refined flavor. Refined meaning they spent time on it, not factory made junk. The noise and layout of the restaurant was great, not too loud, not awkwardly quiet. Food & experience was worth the money.
Great sushi and excellent service.
Sushi was outstanding. We had family visiting from Milan and they loved it. This is our fourth time back
Very fresh sushi with a wide selection of interesting rolls. Service was very attentive (our water glasses were never empty, maybe never even half empty) though food can take a little while to come out. A great special occasion restaurant.
Again, way better than the previous fave I had - Sushi Ko, where the clientele is predominantly non-Asians.
3 visits later, I continue to like Sushi Damo, for its outstanding service and its food.
The restaurant fails to use very good ingredients effectively. The staff learns to use spices. The wine list is very limited. The staff, while young, is very responsive.
Lovely dinner in a warm, hospitable environment. Attentive, knowledgeable service without being pesky. The notable wine list refers to saki which was varied and somewhat pricy. Worth the money though. The sushi was expertly prepared and delicious.
As usual the food very good and consistent in quality. We ate outside this evening and the service was equal to eating inside. The sidewalks of Rockville are very noisy with traffic and pedestrians. Would definitely eat there again for the food.
Try to seat next to a lounge supposed to seat
4 people and a groupe of 12 occupy the place
Do not eat much but drink like crazy and swear
Non stop, when you with your wife for a nigth out
Payed $192 and was not able to talk to with each over
I do not think I will try again try restaurant should decide
Between being a restaurant or a bar
To bad the sushi where ok
Overpriced for quality. Nice atmosphere.
This was my third time dining at Sushi Damo and I believe I can say that each experience was better than the previous. I had reservations for 9pm but got there a little early attempting to catch a movie around the same time. Needless to say that didn't workours as planned. I decided to try to get regular seating and the staff wasdap generous that they took my reservations. l tend to stick to items that I'm more familiar with but this time the waitress suggested that I try something new and personally recommended. I tried the sweet potato tempura roll....OMG, it was AMAZING!!! Outside of the fresh and wonderfully crafted sushi, I enjoy the live yet intimate atmosphere. I will continue to drive the hour trip to Sushi Damo, it's soo worth
The sushi is outstanding, the service excellent. Best California rolls I've ever had; amazing spicy tuna rolls. My husband's tempura was excellent as well. The ony downside is that we went Friday night and it was quite noisy -- hard to hear everyone at our table speak.
We really like this restaurant for sushi, although they offer a variety of Japanese cuisine, we find ourselves coming back for the rolls time and time again. The food is consistently delicious, and they offer a nice variety of specialty rolls. The ambiance has an Asian urban chic feel that we also find appealing. We recommend this restaurant!
Service extremely slow, though it didn't seem to be that busy. food terrific.
I highly recommend the Tuna Arugula - all I can say is classice, Twilight Roll - don't know why, but it tastes like you're eating meat, not to mention it's a round-robin of flavor in your mouth, and the standard Spider Roll - which came with a monster size crab. I've never seen such a large crab in a Spider Roll.
Made a reservation and was seated within about 5-10 min. Wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Food was really good and the flavors were wonderful. Definitely upscale sushi dining. There was one bad thing, and that is the wait for the food was long. It took a while to get our appetizers and then another long while to get our entrees. Aside from the wait for food, everything was great. Just like any other sushi place, it is not very filling so order plenty extras or you will still be hungry.
The food and service were great
Took a long time for appetizer to show up. Waitress was nice about it, but it was still an almost 30 minute wait on cooked veggies. Sushi was good (shiitake mushroom blossom roll) but I think overpriced.
Always have an awesome time at Sushi Damo and the food is amazing. Service is phenomenal and we love the ambiance.
If you like sushi, than this is definitely the place to go...
I am a serious sushi fun and seek out top sushi restaurants wherever I travel. Sushi Damo is excellent on a national scale and truly outstanding compared to the other choices in the greater Rockville area.
They have a number of interesting sushi appetizers or special rolls that are worth the (unusually high) price. The usual sushi choices are excellent.
The service tends to be very good, except on special occasions (Valentine's Day, etc) when they are 100% full. Hard to complain about that...
I sometimes bring my daughters for lunch here and the staff is very helpful with the kids - but my kids do eat sushi. I am not sure if they offer any non-sushi choices, and I would be a little disappointed if they did.
Great DC area Japanese restaurant. Food is consistently very good and sushi always fresh.
The food and atmosphere was wonderful; however, the service was horrible and it was so bad that I even left the waitress and note stating the reason why I was not leaving her any tip.
This restaurant is not what it used to be.
Good sushi. However, overpriced.
The sushi was amazing. Especially the Rising Sun and Mango Sensation rolls. Yum! But the drinks were expensive. If you plan on drinking a few drinks or more, plan on spending a lot. $200 for two people...yikes.
Good sushi but expensive. Service was lacking as it was so crowded.
Service was much much better this time around, most likely because we went on a week night rather than a weekend.
This visit was our first here. Although we had a reservation for two on a Friday evening, there was still a 20 minute wait. Loud & energetic so good for a group. Some of the speciality rolls did not seem so special, but the udon and the rest of the sushi was fresh and tasty. We plan to return on a different day of the week to see if it will be a different experience.
What a great evening we had. We had great food and great service. What else do you need.
The food was great, although i had 2 little kids with me (who love sushi, udon, and everything on the menu) and my waiter was obviously annoyed by them-- so NOT kid friendly on this occasion.
Better than expected. The freshest sushi I've had since moving up here. The service was on point. We had a fantastic waiter who was kind and very professional. I highly recommend this place. We plan on visiting again to try out the other special sushi dishes.
