We visited Dashi for the special omakase dinner. The food was good, but not spectacular. It was good, simple, Japanese food. The Wagyu suriyaki was the best dish of the five courses. The service staff were friendly. The rating is 3 stars because it was good food, but it was not great value for the price— $90 meal per person and only 1/5 dishes was exciting.

This is a hidden delight of Durham. It's had to find a great place to enjoy noodles, not everyone knows how to get it right. I can say that this place is a top 5 of all the places I've tried in California and N.C., very good choices that complement your order. I ruined my favorite shirt, definitely worth it. 👌

First time having Japanese Ramen and I will say it was a great experience and I'll do it again. Service was friendly, seating is close so you get to talk to your neighbors if you want. The Buns were amazing

This restaurant provides an amazing dining experience. We have been many times for over a year now and it never disappoints. Paul is aways there and is by far above and beyond with his passion and dedication to the job and his knowledge. He took the time to even explain in detail different products and his own Knowledge We will remain loyal customers as long as there is a Dashi !

This review is for the Izakaya portion of the restaurant. Wow...just wow. Such a completely delightful experience is so rare lately that I was utterly blown away. The food, drinks, service, and ambiance were so completely on point that there was literally nothing to complain about. There was a comfortable rhythm to the placement and removal of dishes that I felt like it was a performance of some kind. Clearly every detail of the dining experience was being looked at with a discerning eye by whoever runs this establishment. From the moment we walked in and had our vaccine status checked (which made us feel safe) from the time we left it felt purposeful and perfect. Thank you Dashi for a wonderful experience!

The best thing about this place is the atmosphere/location. I've been disappointed multiple times by the vegetarian ramen (consistently burnt sweet potatoes, not many veggies or protein at all, and not the best broth I've had). Overall average food but a fun place to eat!

This place is very cool inside and has some great vibes! I had the Miso Ramen and it was delicious. I didn’t have to wait for a seat when I went around 9pm on a Saturday night. Sat upstairs at the bar (they have a full liquor bar). They’re requiring vaccination proof to sit, which I appreciate!

Pretty good. Got the steamed buns which were great, however with the ramen my protein portion was extremely small… as in one bite. Very high quality food however just wanted to give a heads up about portions. Very good appetizers!

Mouth watering food! I could definitely eat here once a week, great customer service. Not a huge food menu but delicious.. a nice size list of Japanese Spirits and other alcohol
