Dozika Offers Pan Asian Fare at a Reasonable Price with Friendly Service

I ate here recently with a friend. We enjoyed the luncheon specials. I had Thai Spicy Basil with chicken. The meal was served with miso soup and a small salad. Each of us ate for about $10. The food was good and the waitress was attentive and friendly. A good place to sit on a cold winter day and... read more

Great place to pop in - and enjoy a Chirashi bowl, sushi - or other Japanese favorites- reliable and tasty - an unfound gem in a cool neighborhood of shops and restaurants.

We eat here almost every week. The food is pan Asian and they have sushi - which my kids love. I am vegetarian and avoid salt and oil. They are so accommodating to my dietary needs. My husband loves their basal and ginger chicken. We both love the hot saki. The owner and servers are very nice and the price... More

Wonderful neighborhood Pan Asian restaurant. Friendly, spotless and delicious food with an urban vibe through the big corner view window at Dempster and Chicago. Catch the early half price Sushi special midweek and then see a show at S.P.A.C.E. , a great music venue down the street.

The number of places where you can get Chinese food outnumber the places where you can get Japanese or Thai or Korean food about 20/1. Dozika seems to specialize in a nice blend of Sushi/Sashimi, Noodle dishes and Thai food. The value here is a 5. In my Sashimi sampler I had salmon that was of the quality one would... More

For the Chicago area this is a good but not outstanding pan-Asian place. I liked the seating arrangements and decor better when they first open - I find the new layout cold and not very "feng-shui." I like to sit by the windows best. The food is good, but sometimes a bit heavy for Asian (too oily), but is generally... More

We had been there for Valentine Day as it was just across my apartment. We tried Sushi for the first time and that wasn't a good experience but the hosting was quite good. We enjoyed other dishes and drinks to make the nite beautiful. The decor is very peaceful and the staffs are cooperative.

Their Tom Ka Kai soup is the BEST! Seems like they are under new management, as it seems lately everything has improved. Great lunch specials.

2 of us had sushi/maki and 1 had a noodle dish- all were great tasting and filling. It's a comfortable place with an abundant menu. Prices are on par with other Japanese restaurants. Will be back.
