Don't let the location and building fool you.

I must say, I was dubious of this place until I opened the door. The building looks more like a warehouse, and there is nothing outside to make you expect you're in for good sushi. Hell, maybe that's their secret. Once you're inside, you realize it's going to be ok. Check out the menu, and it's... read more

The sushi and sashimi tastes amazing and fresh. Definitely coming back to this hidden heaven! The service was great and fast. I'm surprised this place isn't packed all day, probably because the outside view of the restaurant isn't pleasant.

Have been eating at DK's since it opened. Have pretty much eaten my way through menu. Like it all. When working in Austin have been known to eat both lunch and dinner there. Am appreciative of being treated like "family," although it is now difficult to make up my mind on what I want to eat...have tried so much and... More

We went there with friends who recommended this restaurant. I had seen it countless times driving by, but never thought to eat there. You know those places you just happen to see, but you really want a recommendation before dining there? We were pleasantly surprised. The sake was good and so were all the rolls that we tried. We tend... More

Korean & Sushi doesn't go together... This place was the closest one so I thought I will try... Yelp users said it is pretty good... But to me.... it was just average. Banchan was okay & food was okay. I mean if I am paying for $10 a dish, I would expect it least average. Would I go back? not... More

Very well priced, and very high quality sushi. Some of my favorite in Austin! I never knew there were so many choices of Sake, but our server suggested a great one for us...and now I'm a Sake-pro! The owner loves and appreciates Austin, and will certainly tell everyone. He even ordered a round of sake bombs for the ENTIRE restaurant...and... More

This is my favorite sushi place and all guests we've taken there, many of whom have been to a great number of sushi restaurants, have really enjoyed it as well. DK and his staff are very friendly. Monday nights are karoke nights, for better or worse. Don't let its location (a small run-down plaza) dissuade you. The food is fantastic!

Good food at a good price. I love Mom-n-Pop places.

I love this place because of half price sushi nights, and DK dressing up for Karaoke!
