Fast service, very good soups and rolls, I keep coming back whenever I am in the neighborhood. The agadashi tofu is on the sweet side, but that is the only dish I would pass on.

The food is really tasty here. We used it as an Izakaya to try the rare Echigo beer of Niigata prefecture and some Atsukan hot sake plus various dishes ranging from sushi and rolls to fried kaki. The idea of Izakaya is to order several dishes to share over drinks. The bill was a reasonable 45 bucks pp which is way cheaper than Tokyo for the same quality. The service however was not as good, it was a bit slow and you one had to try hard to the attention of the servers. Overall, three and a half to four is a fair rating.

There is a kind of urine/ ammonia smell to this place, not very pleasant at all. Food is just so so.. I suppose it is acceptable. But since when do restaurants add a 20% gratuity automatically for a table of four??? Yes, I understand many places add them for groups, but for 4? And they did not even make it clear that they have added the gratuity. What, hoping for a double tip???

And on asking them about the bill, they um and ah, kind of pretend cannot speak English, and totally non forthcoming with what's going on. Despicable, that's what I think.

Stay away, people!

Weird strong ammonia smell (possibly from the detergent they use) permeating throughout the restaurant, doesn't seem to bother other guests and waiters. Smells like pee to me on first visit and had to relocate to the entrance where the smell is weaker.

However the food and value is very worth it so we went back almost everyday (we're there only for 4 days).

Food is good especially lunch combos. Sizing is consider large (for someone who live in asia).Try the Katsu (Fried pork cutlet). The sushi rolls are average, salmon teriyaki is also good.

Dojima-Ann was recommended to us by a local, and the promises of yummy food was upheld - went twice and the sushi was especially tasty. One of us had seafood allergy, and they were able to accommodate the request to use new slicing board and knife without any hassle. However, the staff felt a bit distant and reserved, so they could definitely benefit from adding some warmth to their approach. If you do you´ll get the 5 rating easily.
