Donburi (kanji: 丼; hiragana: どんぶり, literally "bowl", also frequently abbreviated as "don", thus less commonly spelled "domburi") is a Japanese "rice bowl dish" consisting of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients simmered together and served over rice. Donburi meals are served in oversized rice bowls also called donburi. Donburi are sometimes called sweetened or savory stews on rice.

The simmering sauce varies according to season, ingredient, region, and taste. A typical sauce might consist of dashi flavored with shoyu and mirin.

Donburi is generally known as a fast-food meal, simple and consistent that's easy to prepare. It represents a bowl of hot cooked rice topped with different meats and/or vegetables.

In many restaurants, the term "donburi" applies to almost any food, especially sliced raw fish, served on top of the rice.

Being considered a Japanese popular dish, Donburi can be easily found in Tokyo. This meal is also quite popular in countries outside Japan, including United States, Great Britain and Canada.
