Absolutely love this kind of fresh, healthy food, served in generous portions. Lots of choices including salads, vegetable entrees with wonderful brown rice, pastas, burgers & sandwiches, Mexican food, "international" entrees, homemade soups & baked goods. And a smaller but no less tasty / nutritious breakfast menu. That said, we've been eating here off & on for years, & the... More

Cool atmosphere--quite a large place with extensive menu. I went in thinking it was an Indian restaurant but it had a little of everything. Got the mac & cheese. Pleasantly surprised it came with a salad. But for me the large shells were not my ideal pick for mac & cheese. Still, quite tasty cheese sauce. Counter person pleasant and... More

We went to Dharma with our Grand Daughter as it was recommended by someone. The food looked good and it appeared to be a popular place. Grand Daughter wanted miso soup and the cost was 14.00 for a large bowl. We asked the Owner/Manager if we could possibly purchase a small bowl for her and he rudely said " I... More

Great selection of dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The portions are generous and the salads are awesome. Each day THREE homemade soups are available which makes it tough to decide because they are usually all good. The food is UNDER seasoned, which is nice not to have to taste salt all the time from other dining establishments. This gives... More

Worth traveling some distance for a vegetarian looking for a wide variety of basic foods. Especially good for me is that they don't go crazy with spices and odd combinations: just a fantastic selection of familiar dishes and luscious treats

A local spot with an abundance of choices. The salads are awesome and the the majority of soups are tasty but sometimes require more seasoning. Walk up-service is curt, but prompt. No nonsense. A bit pricey. Portions can be shared. Options to sit in or outside. It can be a bit noisy inside when it fills up with patrons. Lots... More

One stop that satisfies everyone! My 15 year old is vegetarian as of 8 months ago so finding a restaurant for the whole Family can be a challenge. Domas is perfect. There's something for everyone and so far nothing on the menu has been a mess. My favorite is the temphe burger which is meaty and satisfying. My son likes... More

We've been eating there for seven years. You do stand online to order, but usually no more than a 10 minute wait. Prices are a little high but the portions are large and it's always fresh.

Was really looking forward to this visit as I've been vegetarian for many years but have just decided to go vegan. The portions were substantial but the taste, texture, and presentation of the food were not as good has I had hoped. Didn't expect the cafeteria style of ordering either. The locals really seemed to have liked this spot though... More
