A good place to go when you don't have much money in your pocket. Service is quick. The place is crowded and noisy but it's never uncomfortable. The "Japanese Specialties" are terrible. Avoid them at all costs. The breakfast/brunch specials are the best and you can order them until 5pm. Also, the sandwiches and salads are decent. The best meal value is the soy burger dinner or the hijiki tofu dinner. Both under $6 including tax and tip. It's not the best food in the area but it is good enough and healthier than other options for the same money.

My SO and I had dinner at Dojo. She ordered a veggie burger with a side salad and requested the dressing/sauce on the side. I ordered the niso soba soup (in miso broth) with beef, as well as a cold beer (perfect on a hot, humid summer day). My girlfriend’s food arrived, but it was smothered in sauce, with additional dressing on the side (for which we were charged extra). Considering that we were seated right next to the bar, I expected my Heineken to arrive in a flash, but no such luck (although my beer turned out to be the only satisfactory part of my experience at Dojo). As for my main course, the niso soba in miso broth with beef was poor. The broth seemed to be an over-salted beef consommé rather than a miso base. The “beef” in the bowl in fact was 3 or 4 strips of flesh comprised primarily of sinew with merely a smidgen of stringy meat attached thereto. The soba noodles resembled no soba I had even encountered before -- the noodles seemed to be durum semolina linguini or thin spaghetti trying to act as soba, which is supposed to be made of buckwheat flour and wheat flour. The veggies in the soup were scant: a couple bits of squash and some carrot. The wonderful pieces of fish cake and the chunks of Asian veggies that one generally expects in a soup made with soba noodles? Totally absent. My final word about Dojo: Sayonara.

I dont know how many times ive been here... anyhow, the food is delicious and cheap, and the service is super fast. i go to the bathroom and the food is already there. i would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for good, vegetarian and... scrumptuous food and dessert!

Dojo's has definitely become a staple for over the past few years. The food is decent and it's a nice place to sit and eat lunch or brunch. Whenever I take my friends here they love it, especially the value. You definitely won't find food this cheap anywhere else. I agree with other reviewers in that the service can be so-so. That being said, I still keep going.

Decent food, depending on what you order. Most people I know either love it (because of the value and selections of food they order) or hate it (because the service isn't great and some of the food is below par). I'd recommend it as a quick, cheap lunch. No complaints about the food - it's pretty standard for the city. Not the cleanest place. I usually wouldn't choose to go here, but I won't protest if someone else wants to go.

Food is usually average or slightly above average. Service is almost always slow and unattentive. Prices are very very very good (cheapest place anywhere around NYU to sit-down-eat). You basically get what you pay for.

There are problems with the waiters and mgmt. giving diffferent information about whether the veggies are fried with the meat, and the ingredients in some of the food. If you're a veggie or vegan, don't go.. However, if you want to take your chances, the food is good and the prices are low.
