Domo Restaurant is voted Westword’s Best Japanese Readers Choice 2013!

Top of the Town — Patio Dining

Domo Japanese Country Foods Restaurant
Imagine yourself in an enchanted Japanese garden where wooden footbridges arc over trickling koi ponds, sculptural trees complement stone pathways, and standing lanterns cast a soft glow over your rustic wooden table. Now imagine this serenity plunked in an out-of-the-way alcove of central Denver, and you’ll find yourself at Domo—or rather, just outside the back door of this Japanese eatery on a patio enclosed by the restaurant and its cultural museum. Take your time with the extensive menu—the hefty entrées offer a taste of traditional Japanese countryside—and savor the ambience as much as you do your steaming donburi (rice bowl with sashimi and veggies) or simmering seafood nabemono (stew pot). Bring friends: The round tables are easily big enough for six.

Lego for Learning Campaign


Domo restaurant plays a role in AHAN, the international humanitarian branch of Nippon Kan. One of the ways that Domo supports AHAN is through our campaign “Dine at Domo and Feed the World”.

This video was shot at the Yadanapon temple orphanage in February of 2011 in Yangon, Myanmar. AHAN International has been supporting the Yadanapon temple by supplying rice, medical and educational supplies for the last four years. On this trip, we discovered that Lego make a wonderful toy as well as educational tool for the children under our watch. In the past AHAN has supplied crayons, pens, paints and paper for children in need all over Asia, Central and South America and the Middle East. Crayons and paper are effective in developing creativity and motor skills however these supplies are all consumable and eventually outlive their usefulness. The Lego however can be used over and over again for years to come.
