The food was delicious, especially the Brussels sprouts. We all have a better appreciation of sake as well. The wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. The only thing I would suggest are cusions on the seats! We will return.

Please don't believe the bad reviews-- we don't know what they're talking about. We hope this place is in business serving exactly what it's serving now for 1000 years.

Everyone at my table was extremely happy with the food. Spicy miso ramen was tasty, but I've had better. However it did hit the spot. Brussels sprouts and spicy edamame were a real hit. Fried cucumber was interesting and my friend said he liked better than fried pickles.Chicken kara-ge' was not my favorite. Friend loved his ribeye. Service on drinks was very slow.

From Our Editors

It's not uncommon to see diners lingering at The Dojo’s simple wooden tables after they're finished eating. In fact, the staff encourages them to take their time while enjoying their food and company. This casual, low-key ambiance, along with the communal bench-style seating and hanging paper lanterns, draws inspiration from the izakayas—pub-like eateries and sake bars—that line the streets of Japan. Remaining open late into the evening six nights a week, The Dojo keeps spirits high with drinks and a menu of classic Japanese comfort foods. Just shortly after opening, Eater Austin already honored the fledgling eatery by placing it on the September 2013 Heat Map of the city’s most buzz-worthy restaurants.

Executive Chef Moto Seto oversees the majority of the menu, staying true to the izakaya cuisine he remembered from growing up in Nagoya, Japan and working in Oaska eateries. Although Chef Moto eventually immigrated to the United States, he continued to cook in Japanese restaurants. He grew tired of the surplus of sushi and Japanese steak-house fare, however, and began longing for the authentic street foods of his home. At The Dojo, he recreates this classic comfort cuisine, filling the menu with dishes such as tempura-fried shrimp, grilled pork cheeks, and spicy edamame. The Dojo also remains true to its izakaya roots by featuring a broad selection of Japanese beers, sakes, shochus, and even Yamazaki Japanese whiskey.
