Description: Dojo is a hugely popular restaurant serving street noodles from the Far East. From rich creamy Malaysian Laksas to ocean flavoured Japanese Seafood Soup Udon, Dojo centres on their uncompromising passion for serving quality noodles at fantastically reasonable prices.Dojo is renowned for Excellent Value for Money using the freshest ingredients and premium grade herbs and spices.No MSG additives are used in the restaurant's cooking reflecting the restaurant's dedication to serving healthier food as well. Having undergone a recent major interior refurbishment, Dojo has a contemporary design with cross-overs into a "Chinoiserie" style.. This cross-over is particularly exemplified with a 10 metre feature wall showing an enchanting hand-painted mural of lush summer faunas and vivid songbirds in an Oriental garden. From spring onwards, Dojo's access to Millers Court Yard, provides for fantastic al fresco dining.

This restaurant will soon close for relocation. It's a great pity, as it's current location is excellent, just a short distance from the river and close to an excellent pub. The food comprises a variety of Asian cuisines and is generally very tasty, with very good service. However, value for money is second to none, with huge portions at very... More

If you are craving Asian food, try Dojos. Their helpings are huge though so be prepared to share. Their mee goreng ( noodles) was really yummy.

Good things: (1) MASSIVE portion; I have never been able to finish the noodles I've ordered. It can be easily shared between two people. (2) Wide variety of dishes to choose from ranging from Japanese, Malaysian to Thai dishes; there are also many starters to choose from, and some good choices for vegetarians too. (3) Staff may not be the... More
