Dojo's used to be good- I used to go there all the time for their soy burger dinner, but they must have had some change in management b/c now they've raised the prices- which I don't mind, they were so low anyways- but now the portions are smaller and greasy. Too bad, they used to be pretty good. Now the only good thing there is the carrot-tahini dressing.

I hadn't been to DOJO's in years, and was excited to stop in for a bite and a glass of wine after a long day. My first impression was that in my early 30s (not necessarily that old, right?) I was about a decade too old for this place, as everyone looked about as mature as my four year old nephew, and not much older at that (20 yrs old at most!). But no matter, I averted to young punks staring me down, (I later heard on whisper to his friend, "she's hot" so I chalked it up to being too old to remember what a "scene" these young places can be--esp. for a reasonably attractive woman choosing to grab a bite alone). But----then the wait service happened--how depressing! I sat down and look at the menu then put it down. At least 10 minutes passed and not a person in sight. I called my husband to pass the time and chatted for exactly 1 minute--then waited again for an additional 5 minutes. No one in site. I finally caught a waitresses eye and gave her a friendly wave. She returned a confused deadpan stare---no joke. Then I asked (across the room--and I'm a painfully shy person too!) "Can someone please take my order." She came over looking very put out, so it occurred to me that maybe the problem was me--perhaps the restaurant was a serve yourself place--where I was supposed to tell the bartender or something. I asked her, and she said no, she was a waitress but that I had been talking on the phone the whole time. Not true, and I told her having waited tables myself she would do well to not blame the customer--but I tried to make the best of it and cheerily order a glass of wine and a salad. Well the salad is still delicious and fresh at Dojos--but the wine tasted like 409. I asked a different waitress to take it off the bill since it tasted terrible. Perhaps out of awkwardness I mentioned that original waitress and I hadn't got on too well and that I was a little concerned. I wince now thinking how bad tempered I was, and I take responsibility for my own grouchy behavior, however, this place certainly brought it out of me! I won't be back there it left a bad taste in my mouth!

Somethings gone wrong at Dojo. It used to have a fresh feeling with the food and polite, but slow service. The prices were and are very low, but now the food is greasy and dry and the service has gone from slow to rude. A waitress told me off yesterday when I asked her about my cappuccino that had been sitting on the bar for 5 minutes. And along with that, the bathroom was very unpleasant. Not going there anymore.

The food's ok and I thought that's ok, because you get what you pay for BUT a charge (75 cents) for getting food "to go" especially when I'm picking it up?? Outrageous and totally not worth it.

Yes it's enexpensive, but that doesn't mean it's a great deal. I have given this place a few chances and while I don't care about the service (the place has less to it than a Diner) my problem is the food is really bland and generic. Aside from the great carrot dressing everyone talks about, nothing is too good. To get a plate of Yakisoba is going to cost you at least ten bucks after tax and tip and it is no better than lo mein from any corner chinese spot. The fries are tasty but what shoe string fires aren't? The burger is a thin frozen patty cooked to death.

Ehh the service is pretty bad but the food is worth it. It's depressing there's no more dojo dip but the dip for the chicken fingers appetizer is really good. The tahini dressing is the best thing in this world.

I love the food at Dojo. Its healthy, cheap, and quick. However my favorite menu items are missing too on the new menu. Chicken Sukiyaki salad and Dojo dip sandwich? Please bring them back!
