Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a family dinner here on a busy Saturday night, the little restaurant was quite busy but we really enjoyed it. This is our second time here and the food was just out of world as always and we were told we might need wait for longer time than usual because the chef only cook everything as we order and they were busy, which is a absolutely fantastic thing for us customers, we like fresh food, aren’t we? The lady served us is super friendly and attentive. She was very willing to explain everything and gave us lots of useful advice even when she was extremely busy with hundreds of tasks! Me and my parents all told her she organized and controlled everything quite well, which made the place alive! We choose places when eating out based on the atmosphere more, though the food is important. Actually, my dad likes the food of a local Thai restaurant but we aren’t quite happy with the service and atmosphere there, so we leave it now. Anyway, we will come again and bring more friends here as I promised to the lady:) Recommend and Thank you! So nice food and so efficient friendly staff

We enjoyed a brilliant weekend in Harrogate just as lock down ended. A culinary highlight of our trip (we ate out a lot!) was the amazing lunch we had at Domo. What a perfect restaurant! It felt very Covid-safe with screens between tables and staff wearing masks. We had a cosy corner table and had a lunch consisting predominately of sushi which we ordered from the a la carte menu (there were also set lunches which seemed fantastic value - however on this occasion we were treating outselves). The fish was so fresh and the rice cooked perfectly and at just the right temperature (not fridge cold as it often is). We had some nice wine and took our time. Service was spot on- attentive but not in any way rushed. We only wish we lived closer and could make this one of our regular haunts. Thank you Domo for a really special experience

A cosy, authentic Japanese restaurant that provides excellent service, perfect food freshly prepared and excellent value ( even for Harrogate). Our party of 6 have varying tastes and this was our first but definitely not last visit to Domo. The menu to the uninitiated ( like me) can look daunting but the waitresses were superb in providing guidance and advice. Our rather extensive list of starters were brought on what must be most stunning presentation! Forget ornamental sliced carrots ( very '80s), we were given the Koi Pond Bridge ( see photo). A huge aubergine, tuna, eel, octopus, duck plus a host of others were delicious. The mains were the same and the Teriyaki sirloin simply melted in your mouth. Those who had tofu loved it. Surprisingly we we all stuffed and had no room for dessert which is a shame as they looked delicious as well. In terms of value it came to £190 for 6 including wine, beer, spirits and service charge. Unlike certain other cuisines we weren't hungry an hour later! If you're looking for an excellent meal then look no further; looking forward to going back. Thank You Domo

My partner and I had been wanting to book this place ever since it opened as we are very keen on sushi. We finally decided to book a table which was done via facebook messenger, and the page was very quick to respond. When we arrived, our drinks and food orders were taken promptly but we were then asked if we would like our food delivering at the same time. We said yes as we wanted to spend a good amount of money and have plenty of food at the table and we were willing to wait longer for this. Despite this, my partner's hot food arrived first, with my food taking another half an hour to arrive. My partner ordered a hot dish and some sushi, but his sushi never arrived though somehow ended up on the bill, and we had to ask for it to be removed. When ordering my food, there was one item I couldn't remember the name of, so I asked the waitress if it was possible to order later on when I remembered. When I then remembered, I asked the waitress if it was possible to order the extra food and she told me "as you can see the chef is very busy as the moment" which I completely understand, as the restaurant was clearly very busy. However, this is exactly why I asked if it would be okay to order my food when I remembered what it was I wanted to order. We ended up spending £15 (with the eat out to help out scheme included) however we were starving hungry and ended up going to another restaurant after for another meal. We were utterly disappointed in our experience at this restaurant. We really did understand that it was busy because of the government scheme and we are willing to try DOMO again because we have seen such great reviews. We are a VERY understanding couple as we have both worked in stressful and busy environments. However, when you are told specifically by the servers if the food will come altogether and it doesn't, and when the waitress goes back on her word, it is very difficult to enjoy the subsequent meal. Despite everything, chef was obviously working extremely hard and made some delicious food!

We came here early evening on New Year’s Eve having wanted to try it for a while but struggled to get a table previously. The service was a little chaotic at the start and the restaurant was a bit cold - we were there at the start of service but on a busy night such as NYE I would’ve thought they might have been more prepared The starters were served promptly and they were delicious- we had spicy tuna maki & the wasabi prawn appetiser. The mains took a little while to come but when they came they were equally tasty. We really enjoyed it & cant wait to come back to try more of the menu The restaurant itself is quite small but finished to an authentic Japanese style. I would recommend booking, of which the restaurant were very prompt in responding over email to my reservation enquiry

Went to Harrogate for the weekend and tried to get in here for dinner. I would love to be able to rate the food but unfortunately after phoning the restaurant numerous times throughout the day, we couldn’t get a booking because they never answered the phone or appeared to leave it off the hook a few times. So we thought we would chance our arm and go to the restaurant to check if they had any tables. My partner went in and asked if it was possible to get a table for two. He was told to try again later that night. So he asked could he book a table for later that night then they changed their mind, they were fully booked and basically escorted him out of the restaurant and shut the door behind us. We were left very confused wondering if we’d done something wrong but we hadn’t. Was a very rude experience and we were both left feeling annoyed.

As a lover of Japanese cuisine I’ve wanted to try Domo for a while now. We were planning on going to Wagamama but we decided to try Domo and so glad we did. The food was fresh, delicious and authentic, and we thought very good value. The waitress (who I think was the owner) was so friendly and knowledgeable, she made us feel really welcome and was interested in getting feedback. We will certainly be back soon, we would much rather support a small business than a chain such as Yo Sushi or Wagamama that is no where near as authentic.

We had an 8:45 reservation. Arriving on time we found there were six unhappy looking people at our table who'd only just been brought the bill and were being hurried out. The restaurant was slammed. Our waitress was initially friendly and explained that there was such a backlog of orders that our shared sushi starters could take 30 minutes. She asked if we'd be ok if she brought the mains and sides when they were ready with the sushi to follow. We reluctantly agreed. 50 minutes later the first of the mains arrived. We started complaining at this stage and were basically told that's how it is tonight. The rest followed in dribs and drabs with the last of the mains appearing more than an hour after ordering. One order of sushi tipped up ten minutes later. When we were told that the final sushi dish was imminent 80 minutes in we refused it. We managed to haggle a reluctant reduction in the bill but still left extremely unhappy. We won't be revisiting.

We popped in about 5 to make a dinner reservation. There was one opening for 7:30 that we snatched up. The govt Eat Out to Help Out scheme has made this place very popular- with good reason! The hostess was forever answering the phone during our meal for people wanting future reservations. This is not a complaint; it’s great to see people returning to normal. That being said, staff wore masks and there was plastic screens separating each table. We felt very safe. The food was excellent!! We are novices with sushi and were offered some advice. We had the straight forward salmon nigiri (see pic). It was fresh and well presented. We asked for it to be served as a starter, which was not a problem. We also had the veg gyoza, which was very nice indeed. For mains (see pics) we had pork bone ramen and chicken teriyaki with steamed rice. I could’ve had the main again straight after- it was so good. Filling but not heavy. All in all, a brilliant meal and with £20 off, even better! Would definitely recommend!

Our first experience of Japanese food, other than on the go sushi. the staff were excellent and very knowledgable, helping us choose the right dishes. Food arrived quickly and tasted amazing, would recommend the grilled aubergine in miso sauce and the soft shelled crab

Great to get out to some of our favourites now some sanity is returning. Booking was straight forward, table spacing was good and all staff were masked etc. No silly extra restrictions which made the visit so normal. Drinks arrived, chose the Japanese gin which was most excellent. The ladies stuck to Pinot which was good as we joined in later. Ordered a sushi boat to start and then just ordered from the hot starters with a couple of rices on the side. Soft shell crab was exquisite, as were the tempura prawns. If you are tempted - just go, they will guide you through the menu and it is all so super fresh and tasty.

Came here for our anniversary and the food was absolutely incredible, some of the best sushi I've had in a while. We had a starter of spring rolls and then had chicken teriyaki, both beautifully cooked and delicious. Then the sushi came (a little later than wanted, but completely understandable as they have one sushi chef and plenty of customers), it was so wonderfully presented and the food itself had me dancing in my chair. If you find yourself in Harrogate and you're a sushi enthusiast I recommend coming here!

A lunchtime meal for 2 as a break from shopping in the town. The restaurant was far from busy: only 2 parties, one of whom was waiting for take away and left fairly soon after we arrived. We had to wait over 40 minutes for our food and when it did arrive it was in a piecemeal fashion. First came a container of miso soup to go with my bantu box, followed about 5 minutes later by my companion's dish. I watched her eat it. She finished then most of the rest of mine arrived, by which time the soup was cold. Later, the last part of mine arrived. Later arrivals to us had their food before we did,. We had green tea: one tea bag in a large pot for 2 people. £2.65 each to share a teabag. We did ask for another tea bag. The food, when it did arrive was distinctly average although the sushi was nice.

Hi, Thanks for your feedback. I am so sorry to see you haven’t had a great experience with us on that day. But I really wanna explain a bit here, by which we may have your understanding then. Firstly, as a Japanese restaurant (I am not sure how others work), we serve the food in a first-ready-first-serve way, in which we can keep the most freshness of all our dishes to the most extent, especially the sushi food. I understand you ordered a bento and a sushi boat, and the sushi always takes longer waiting, so we served your companion the bento first. In regards to the miso soup, we will always serve the miso soup as a starter if the customer order the special lunch meal. So it is meant to have it as soon as you get it. Anyways, I do apologise for everything you mentioned here, and we hope see you next time. Cheers!

So we’re massive foodies, and have eaten in tons of upmarket establishments. And I honestly have to say this up there with one of the best Japanese restaurants I’ve even eaten in!! We arrived, super cute exterior, inside it’s very traditional and when quiet it doesn’t give you that instant wow factor, in fact almost the opposite. But don’t be put off your seat and enjoy! I highly recommend the Shashimi set sushi which comes beautifully presented on a boat or the chicken gyoza. All the food was amazing, the drinks were amazing and the staff were so attentive and second to none! Such a great find and worth a visit, can’t wait to return x
