Having undergone a recent major interior refurbishment, Dojo has a contemporary design with cross-overs into a "Chinoiserie" style..

The food and service was great, especially the katsu curry, which was beautifully balanced and delicious. We also tried the ice cream, which was lovely. i really recommend the ginger and rhubarb one. The only downside was that the portions are a bit big and I got full so quickly, so I couldn't try the amazing sounding dumplings. Next time... More

If you like Asian and noodles you are in the right place. Big menu with dishes from different countries, quickly prepared and big size portions.

Simply, this is a must try when in Cambridge. Looking for some nice authentic food, the misses and myself trawled through websites trying to find somewhere to go when we finally decided on Dojo... and what a decision it was! From the second we arrived, the owner made us feel exceptionally welcome, moving wheelchair ramps, moving reserved tables and cracking... More

This is a tiny restaurant so be prepared to wait and squeeze in but it is packed because the food is so god. Not only is it tasty but it feels like a healthy option for a meal out because of the quality of the ingredients used. The portions are huge but it is an accepted practice here to take... More

When I lived in Cambridge 8 years ago this was one of my favourite restaurants: fast, wonderful food. It was my first choice when dining alone and I ate there dozens of times with my family and work colleagues. Today's trip with my now grown-up son and girlfriend was intended to impress his guest, but did anything but! Service was... More

Hi Joe S I am sorry that your experience at Dojo was not up to your expectations. Possibly, you may have caught the kitchen on an off day. In addition, part of our ktchen brigade have not been available for work. In any case, we do not settle on excuses. Had you asked us to exchange the dish, we would... More

Hi Drashtti Thank you kindly for taking the time to write about us. Not sure about the title tho :) Perhaps high quality, good value and generous portions - would be a tad more appropriate. If you like your food hot, you may wish to select from our Extreme Chilli Sauce menu, a favourite with our hot-headed customers! Thanks again... More

Quick visit during a week night, great food, maybe too big portions but very appetising. Meal for two with drinks under 30 pounds. Will be returning many times

We have been here many times and it has always been superb. Ate today (Sunday). The food is hot and delicious and very generous portions. Even though the restaurant is small it doesn't matter. Staff are always friendly. Can't recommend enough. Had prawns, dumplings and squid for starters. Absolutely gorgeous. Then a lovely mixed curry and seafood noodles. You must... More

Nestled next to the forlorn remains of Mahal, Dojo looks like a glimmering ray of hope for far-eastern food in Cambridge. It’s quirky, decorative interior is nothing like the soulless shared tables at Teriyaki by Magdalene, nor does it have the fast-food feel of Yo Sushi. It’s also far enough from the town centre to be free from annoying tourists.... More

Hi Morwenna Sorry to hear that our service was not up to your expectations. Normally, as can be seen from most other previous reviews, our service from out front of house staff is of a high standard. Possibly you may have caught our staff on an off day or a busy day where the service was possibly compromised. In any... More
