I was in the mood for a little Thai food while on a trip to Evanston for a medical conference. Dozika was within walking distance from my hotel, and the reviews looked good, so figured I'd give it a try. The restaurant itself is very cozy with comfortable tables. Service was relatively quick. I ordered tom yum soup and pad... More

At here before an event at Space. Staff was friendly, food was very good and had a varied menu. We mostly had appetizers and they were lovely (satay, spring rolls, chive dumplings, etc.). Nice sized restaurant.

We're here about once a month, mostly for happy hour meal specials, which are quite good. Mostly we get sushi, sashimi, and rolls. Shrimp tempura rolls are to die for! Have also tried bento box for lunch and thai entries...all good. Service is always fast and attentive, too.

Sushi is good, but I'd say a bit pricy for what you get. The selection is standard. They do have a Korean beer that's not too common. But other then that, it's a pretty standard place.

As residents of Evanston, IL we have dined here more than 50 times in the last fifteen years! It is reasonably priced,fresh and great Thai and Japanese cuisine, including very good Sushi. The staff is friendly and the fish is fresh. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes quality Asian food. It is family friendly as well.

The sushi and the ramen are great here, and the atmosphere is nice. And reasonable prices! Dozika is a favorite for my family.

This is a staple in our household. Good thai food + sushi, and very quick delivery. This is where we order from when we can't agree on either Sushi or Thai food.
