Looking for a menu to get some take out on the way home, I noticed the older, single terrible review of this place... and I beg to differ. I used to live right on the corner in one of those overly-expensive condo buildings from before and after Domo Sushi was established. Time and time again, I kept going back, even now that I live in Burnaby, read on to find out why.
First things first, Domo Sushi has the best Spicy Tuna Roll EVER: inexpensive, and you get 5 decently large pieces of huge, solid-cut Tuna in a light chili-oil-type sauce, unlike the minced tuna and/or over-drenched artificial red spicy sauce you see at most places (unless that's your thing). If you come here for one thing only, this is it.
The place is small, and seems family owned/operated. I've only ever noticed just two employees, probably husband and wife, chef/husband doesn't talk much, however both are friendly. They have a young 6 -8 year old girl filling in colouring books/doing homework in the afternoon/evening every now and then that sometimes helps them hand out food (daughter off of school maybe?). Food comes pretty quick depending on how busy they are, I've never had issues waiting a long time. Simple decor, and all glass looking out onto the street. Not much to look at.
The sushi is more simpler than most places, and personally, I prefer it that way. Although I still enjoy them and their portions, many popular, or cheap outings rely too much on a california-base for their selection of rolls (Sushi Town, Asakusa, Sushi Garden, California Sushi), and I find that Domo offers a good balance to them.
I'm also a big fan of their wild salmon and cream cheese roll, very nice balance and texture. I like my Toro (fatty tuna belly yum), and Domo's Toro is decent in terms of pricing/quality/value, although I notice that it's sometimes still a little too frozen on some pieces, maybe it doesn't get ordered enough. Negitoro Roll (minced Toro and julienned green onion) is a pretty small portion, although nice.
I've tried other rolls, tempura, miso, and items on the menu and I don't remember them standing out too much, good or bad. I usually aim for the wild salmon, bbq salmon skin, and avocado dish-based rolls.
That's pretty much it, give it a go if you're in the area, and check it out for yourself.
Cheers, and happy sushi hunting.
