I love Dojos. Their Hajiki Tofu Dinner is the best thing that I have ever eaten. I'm surprised to see any negative reviews, as it is one of my favorite places to eat in the whole city.

For 8 dollars, plus tax and tips, the lamb curry stew dinner I had on my only visit here wasn't anywhere near fulfilling enough. The food was fairly decent and tasted halfway between Indian curry and Irish Stew. However, the bowl of curry is tiny and only half filled, and the lamb bits are small. They don't give you much rice either. For over 11 dollars total, this hardly qualifies as a cheap eat for college students. As a cash-strapped student myself, I am all too willing to sustain myself on 5 dollar footlongs at Subway on LaGuardia Place that at least fill my stomach.

Dojo's been around forever for a reason. It's free of gimmicks or attitude and serves a large, delicious assortment of food for more than reasonable prices. The Hijiki Tofu Dinner is still under $5. Vegans & vegetarians can take their non-v friends without guilt. Both food and service are unpretentious and inviting. It's clean & professional. We think it's even improved over the years.

Dojo is wonderful if you are a starving student (one whose money is being sucked away by NYU). Seriously, you have to be a dufus to go here expecting anything fancy. But, in comparison to the other restaurants around this area you are not going to find more bang for your buck.

I can't understand all of the negative reviews! I am not sure how "special" people want to be treated when they go out, or why they come to NYC if they don't like young people (especially since Dojo is so close to NYU), but it would be just fine if they stayed home. I have been going to Dojo for 13 years and it is consistently a great place to find healthful options at very low prices--for anywhere! If the prices have gone up at all it has been minimal, and yes all prices must go up, especially in NYC. I have never waited more than five minutes for my food, and the staff has never been less than professional (but they are usually friendly, especially if you sit at the bar). Maybe I have low expectations, but fast, good food for under ten dollars is good enough for me!

Surpised at negative reviews. I've been going for years. There are plenty of choices for vegetarians, vegans and carnivores--all yummy. The service is often indifferent, but the food and the price certainly make up for it. I wish I could eat there every day.
