Good Bulgogi, Great Service.

This is a pretty classic family run little sushi bar with some Korean food on the side. The staff was very attentive and friendly and eating sushi while Johnny Cash played in the background was weirdly endearing. I would give it 5 stars but the Spider Roll was sub par. The sashimi was excellent... read more

We used to love DK Sushi. Unfortunately, the restaurant's quality of service can no longer match the quality of its sushi. In our last two visits, our waitress has forgotten our order. In our most recent visit, a group of extremely obnoxious, screaming, drunk patrons were allowed to carry on while half the restaurant was forced to move. Everyone stared... More

I love strip mall restaurants and this place is exactly why. It was clean, very modest and had K & J-Pop playing in the background. Our server was fantastic, taking plenty of time to explain the dishes and making suggestions on using the various condiments. The dishes were very good and perfectly sized. It isn't glamorous, but well worth the... More

I love this little whole in a wall place. I have never had to wait to be seated and I love sitting in the tea house area, where you must take off your shoes and sit at a table where your legs sit sort of underground. The sushi is absolutely amazing, I always get the Cali roll or Mexican roll.... More

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 easy to get excited.... 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
