  • Review by BANU on May 1, 2007:

  • Far from exciting, as everyone else said, but it's cheap, and the carrot ginger dressing IS incredible. Stick with the simpler food, and you'll be happy. The waitstaff will be mean. Don't take it personally. They're the spawn of Satan. Literally.

  • Review by frank language on January 20, 2007:

  • It's a shame that the review of Dojo East has been taken down; [informed] word has it that although they've had a dispute with one of their two landlords (who didn't want to make crucial repairs--surprise, surprise--that would allow them to continue to operate) they are planning to come back as a Japanese restaurant that serves Dojo's traditional menu by day, and be an upscale Japanese restaurant by night.

    Tony, the owner, owns several restaurants in the area and is presently occupied with renovating a space on 7th street--in a building he owns--to become a no-name (speakeasy, anyone?) restaurant catering to Japanese businessmen.

    Shortly after Dojo West opened, I read a review of it that stated they really should import some kitchen staff from Dojo East to teach them to cook. I actually haven't been to this location in years; my impression was that Dojo East had it down a little better than Dojo West.

    Fortunately, they still sell their carrot/tahini vinaigrette for takeout by the pint; that dressing rocks.

  • Review by lizette on May 28, 2006:

  • I am not a fan of Dojo's. The food is definitely cheap, but I always feel rushed, the waitstaff isn't particularly helpful (or capable of answering food-related questions...), and everything tastes rather bland.

    If you're in the NYU area, there are so many other better places to go (walk over to VP2, Red Bamboo, Gobo, or get a dosa from the dosa cart, etc.).
