    It's all about the sauce

    I patronized the original St. Marks' Dojo's weekly throughout the 1980s and always savored the soyburger dinner. The West 4th St. location is a new one near the old Bottom Line. Although nostalgia and years have likely dampened the taste buds, to the best of my memory, the dinner fare here is much the same as 20 years ago on St. Marks. I was lucky to eat at the West 4th St location at least 3 times over the course of a summer 2007 NYC visit. The ambience was not remarkably different from the St. Marks unit, and the soyburger dinner, with its luscious carrot-tahini sauce, likely remains the tastiest, cheapest, healthiest dinner in Manhattan.

    Pretty good

    I went here today and had their hummus sandwich, which contained a spread unlike any other hummus I've ever had; it was almost soupy. Regardless, there was a strangely addictive quality to the sandwich, and for such a low price, how could I complain?

    Love the food, esp. the dressing!

    I've never had a bad meal here. For breakfast, I've had the homeade granola with soy milk and it is delish! My favorite, though, is the soy burger dinner. By far, the best soy burger I've ever had and the most inexpensive but filling meal ever. The tahini dressing is awesome! Ask for extra!

    The soy burger dinner rocks!

    By far the best thing on the menu is the soy burger dinner! It's very filling...and cheap! It comes with a dense soy burger drizzled with carrot dressing, a huge pile of rice (or potatoes) and a small salad. Other goodies include steamed veggies and tofu over brown rice and the tofu salad. Of course, all these things come covered in the carrot dressing...so that's really the best thing here, I guess! As for the complaints about the service...what do you want for a $5 sit down meal???? Besides, they're not THAT slow. Once they come to your table, the food is there in like 30 seconds. Seriously, people, where you gotta go in such a hurry? This place rocks.

    Dressing. It's all about the dressing.

    Say what you want about Dojo. Yes, the service is frustratingly slow. And I can't really comment on most of the food--because all I ever have here is anything I can smother in the glorious, glorious Dojo carrot tahini dressing. The Dojo salad is my favorite vehicle for it, with a generous amount of cheese, fresh avocado, and sprouts. I usually get a large side of extra dressing and home fries to dunk in it. Honestly, the dressing is that good. I live in London now, and it's one of the few foods I truly long for over here. If you can't stand the service, just pick up a pint for your salad at home. Nothing beats it.

    Not worth the service

    The food here is inexpensive, yes, and often soggy, but with the tahini sauce your salad or burger can actually taste good sometimes. However, the service can be so bad that I'd rather pay a few bucks more elsewhere not to put up with it. For fear of my review not being published, I'll refrain from using the kind of words I'd like to use to describe some of the waitresses here. They are so rude -- and consistently so. Not only do they slam your plates on the table in front of you, they groan if you ask them for water, salt/pepper, ketchup, or anything else that should be at the table and part of the service. They are also quite obnoxious while taking your order. My bill was $8 one day, and when I put down a $20, the obnoxious waitress said thank you and walked off with it saying goodbye. When I told her I needed change, she threw the bill back at me and told me to go to the cashier. Was she *really* expecting a $12 tip for her obnoxiousness? Sorry, I'd rather make my own sandwiches to save money than go to this place.

    Challah French Toast

    The best reason to go : Challah French Toast. DELICIOUS! That's why I go at least once a week - Fabulous!
