After reading all the positive reviews, I have a high expectation of this restaurant. I went for lunch, and they offered a set lunch with about 6 to 7 items. I chose beef as my main, and my spouse selected lamb. The food is average, and forgettable. I would grade the food to be 7 out of 10. The service... More

Read about this place on some reviews so we decided to give it a try and we were so charmed by the venue, wonderful service, and tantalizing food that we returned the next weekend to order the same dishes again. We've been to several restaurants during our travels, including Gordon Ramsey's in London and we found Dozo on par, if... More

My partner and I dined here for lunch on Valentine's Day. I love the place for its quiet ambience. The restaurant is rather spacious, and its decors are tasteful and classy. I like how the way the dining tables were arranged so that the diners each have a considerable area of their own private space. We were presented with a... More

There is traditional Japanese fare on the menu but most of the menu isn't really Japanese-Japanese. Still the food is great. For a seven-course meal at dinner you would have to fork out about $60++. You can order from the a la carte menu which is exactly the same but it's not worth your while. Unless you have eaten a... More

I went to Dozo in a group of around 30 people. We all went for the 7 course menu. The choice was good but the only course I didn't enjoy was the beef tenderloin everything else was really nice. The service was great and the staff were friendly. This is the first Japanese restaurant I have been in Singapore but... More

This restaurant is rather different from others. (1) many rooms (2) friendly staff who tried to crack jokes on almost everything (3) interesting food choices.

You are presented with a large number of choices in a multi-course meal. Portions are reasonably sized so you can get through all the courses. Food beautifully displayed and served as tasty morsels. The escargots are prepared with butter and spices - very delicious! The drinks and teas are a lovely complement to the meal.

Good fusion balance at very resaonable price. I love the beef tenderloin main course as it is juicy with right texture. The lobster bisque cappuccino is also unique with fresh lobster taste. We went for 7 course lunch and the portion is also just right. This place also has private rooms and is definitely ideal for small gathering with friends.... More

Beautifully presented delicious dishes that reminded me of dinners at Michelin-starred restaurants in Spain and France. Service was warm and friendly but really felt sorry for the few staff who were overwhelmed through no fault of theirs because of cut back in foreign labour by government.
