    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!

    the best place to go when broke

    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.

    Low Quality at a Low Price

    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.

    Yummy and cheap

    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!

    The price is definitely right

    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.

    You either love it or you hate it.

    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.
