Dao Fu is in my neighborhood so I eat there often. You get a lovely complimentary salad and complimentary ice cream with fruit slices after dinner. Everything I have tried is really scrumptious; my favorites are the Japanese gyoza and the lemongrass chicken. The atmosphere...More

The best tofu ever!! Love the appetizer salad with fresh tofu. Great selection of entrees. Have tried the soup, noodle and shrimp dishes and found them all to be very flavorful and good quality. Love the quiet restaurant and good service.

I used a restaurant.com certificate, and maybe because of the forced 18% gratuity, the service was just not great. Slow and we had to ask for everything. The vegetarian menu is awesome though! They also give you free salad and free ice cream dessert. The...More
