You don't come here to see or be seen, just to have some decent food for a decent price. We arrived as a party of 8 at around 21:00. The place was half empty, occupied mainly by students from a nearby university. The orders were taken quickly and so did the food arrive. We enjoyed a simple and tasty dinner.... More

Me and my friends enjoyed the food but the staff was horrible! Our waitress burned my friends hand with a plate and then took forever to bring us the check once we are done with the food. We still tipped but not long after we gave in our payment she came back to us complaining that we didn't tip enough.... More

This restaurant has nothing to do with Japanese food. The teriyaki beef was cut as big as a stake. It came on a hot plate,by the time it cooled off all the sauce was gone. Not that it mattered it was tasteless anyway. The rice was dry so I didn't even bother to eat it. The soup was full of... More

If you are looking for some interesting options for cheap eats in the NYU vicinity, here you go. I personally enjoyed the old decor and layout, so I think it has lost some of it's charm. Also back when I was a drinker the prices were one of a kind, so again lost some of it's charm. But I still... More

Fantastic noodles with authentic flavors. We highly recommend the Tonkotsu Ramen and the Miso Ramen. The Tomato Ume Tonkotsu Ramen is good for the adventurous minded. TIP: For a little bit more, you could get an extra serving of noodle for those with bigger appetite "Oomori". The 4 of us ordered 4 ramen and super-sized 2 of them.

We wanted something quick and light to eat after the movie so we chose Dojo. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly.

Dojo's is nice. I've been a few times and compared to my sisters adoration of the place, I'm generally underwhelmed. It's Asian, mostly vegetarian and has a small enough menu. I ordered chicken tenders stuffed with cheddar cheese and they were tasty. My niece who was with us is coeliac and my sister is vegetarian so they were both more... More

Ate at this vital NYU establishment for years. Dojo changed management--and menus a few years ago. As a quintessential carnivore--enjoyed an occasional healthful veggie dish. I ordered the curry, rice and vegetable dish. The dish was awful--curry was pasty and thick, and veggies were virtually non existent. And it was pricey! Miss the old Dojo.

Dojo is a Japanese-ish kind of place, with reasonable pricing one would think, until the food met the mouth. Individual dishes bear low prices, but are generally filled with little food, so their number and cost is likely to escalate, unless one is on a diet. Further, one cannot rely on advice, for a pork belly serving said to have... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
