Amazing traditional Japanese restaurant. Back in Japan in Schaumburg. I found this place before coming to Schaumburg and mentioned to Hubby that this is a must-dine place while we're here. We made it happen. It's very traditional and most clientele are Japanese, so we know we hit the jackpot. The restaurant is quite big, there's a sushi bar, first dining... More

2nd visit here, have to say this is the best Japanese food in the area. Fresh fish, amazing homemade ramen and gyoza! Everything comes out piping hot and delicious! Service is great too! Will return everytime we're craving some ramen or sushi!

I cannot say enough how much I love this place. I have never been to Daruma before and I was expecting some standard Japanese food that you can normally get anywhere. As soon as I walked into the restaurant, I felt that I am an outcast and do not fit in. That's when I said "JACKPOT"!!!!! Pretty much everyone in... More

After surviving so much mediocrity here in Schaumburg, Daruma was a treat. Japanese run by Japanese, to start with, and a reasonably authentic menu as well. The goma-ae was as good as any I've had and the duck appetizer was superb. The sushi was good quality, very flavorful and reasonable portions. Expensive, but a very satisfying dinner!

I have been a patron of Daruma since they opened in 1986. It is one of the better Japanese restaurants I have visited in the US. This is saying something, given the fact that there is not an ocean nearby. The sushi is always exceptionally fresh and of the highest grade and quality. The Japanese sushi chef/owner/operator is very particular... More

They have rooms to provide more privacy for a small party. Menu is primarily in Japanese (there is an English version, but seems to have less items). They have small appetizer or tapa like dishes and are good for trying things out. You can order lots of them without filing up. Seafood are fresh and the varieties of preparation are... More

I ordered the Sushi assortment. It was very good. The selections were very fresh and high quality, the presentation was beautiful. Very interesting menu with many traditional Japanese offerings. I will be back to try some.

While I have generally stated that, "Idon't like Japanese food." Daruma Restaurant has made me change my mind. Eating there last night on my wife's birthday was a most enjoyable way to celebrate it. I had a noodle dish that was better than anything I had ever had at a Japanese Restaurant. I would highly recommend this establishment for anyone... More

I love Daruma. IMHO, one of the best Japanese restaurant in Chicagoland. The food is very fresh, authentic, and tasty, especially if you go for izakaya/tapas style menu. The restaurant can get very busy, so reservations highly recommended.
