“Great food but bad service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

The Dots is a great place to have Sushi as they have a big menu. The place is located in the center so it was easy to find. We reserved a table and were very glad we did so as the restaurant was very crowded. However, we were not all too lucky with our waitress as she was very slow and quite disinterested in us. It took her ages to get our Sushi and our bill- so we were quite happy to leave her. The barkeeper however was very nice, talkative and friendly. I guess it kinda depends on the waiter, but for us the experience was not too nice.

“First time eating sushi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

I went with my family for lunch. My daughter who loves sushi recommended this place. This was my first time eating sushi so I can't compare it to other sushi meals. The service was ok. The waitress could have been more helpful explaining the dishes to me. It was average service. The restaurant was very quiet for lunch. I was a bit annoyed by the smoke. I would image it gets loud at night. There was DJ equipment behind me.

“Mmmmmmwaaaah”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Nice place which we stumbled into by accident since it's hidden in a passage you normally wouldn't cast a second glance. Anyway, once inside Dots, a second glance is just a start since you'll need to look at least 4 or 5 times to capture the design of this place. It isn't a single restaurant, it's 4 or 5 different club like scenes bound together. But enough about appearances, we all know they can be deceiving. Let's talk food. Food that is also seems to be about appearances with red sushi for example. The daily lunch special (8,95) is very nice and tasty, but the sushi lovers plate is not what you would expect when you do indeed love sushi. Maybe they should rename it into 'sushi beginners plate' since it is ok but not something you will fall in love with.

Overall Dots is a nice place but not a restaurant you will frequently visit when you truly love Japanese food.

“Excellent service, romantic atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

A nice atmosphere for a romantic dinner. Very large place divided into sections and most interesting is the welcome bar and the welcoming staff. We went there for a relaxing evening and for some experimental sushi because we like to diversify and we were well surprised. The experimental sushi really tasted different and of course very tasty but the most fabulous was the decor - japanese style with a romanticism tendance for a couple dinner. I strongly recommend it for a dinner. I can only say: It really takes you to Japan! :)
