    Very busy and crowded. Staff was running into one another. We waited over 10 minutes for a server. Then another 20 for one cocktail. We ordered 4 items and each was brought out individually the last one fried rice 10 minutes after the others.

    I have visited Dokyo several times. The food was excellent. Our server was very kind, helpful, and was around at the right times to make sure we were having a good meal. Prices were a smidge high for the area.

    This was our first time visiting the restaurant. A table wasn’t ready for our reservation. Reservation marked as “Anniversary” but there was no acknowledgement of that whatsoever from the hostess. We were sat next to a loud table of four. Waited 10 minutes to order. Table beside us got their food 15 min before us after we ordered at the same time. Were Asked for a bowl of miso soup 25 min after sitting (we were asked when the two tables beside us were asked). Food came in 40 minutes after sitting. The soft shell crab was lukewarm at best. The Korean soup was okay. The kimchi lacked flavor. The steamed white rice was probably the only good item we ate. We ate half the food. We told the waiter about the food but we still offered to pay for it. It was a horrible experience especially for our anniversary dinner. Also, the aesthetic of the website doesn’t reflect the bar/club atmosphere at the location. We didn’t expect it to be loud. Not recommend for an anniversary date or similar dates.

    Air conditioning was not sufficient! Actually hot inside! Quite uncomfortable indeed!

    Dokyo DauntaunResponded on June 6, 2022Im sorry for your experience, normally our AC is working sufficiently. Unfortunately, one of our AC units went out this weekend and we were waiting on repairs. We will see you next time, while its running effectively.

    The food and drinks were really good, but it so was damn hot inside the building! Every table I looked at had guest using the cocktail menus as fans! We asked our waiter why it was so hot in there and he told us because the owner leaves the AC off all day and turns it on at 5pm. That’s not nearly enough time to cool to comfort during a Texas summer. I asked for my ticket while chewing my last piece of sushi to get up out of there, lol! It was honestly cooler and less humid outside than it was inside.

    Dokyo DauntaunResponded on June 5, 2022We apologize for the temperature; it was hot inside the restaurant today. However, the information the waiter told you was incorrect. We do keep our AC on all day so it stays at a good temperature. The issue was that one of our AC units froze and had to be shut down for repairs. When all the ACs are functioning the restaurant stays at a comfortable temperature. I'm glad to hear you guys enjoyed the food and drinks though! We will see you next time when our AC is back up and running!

    I’m very disappointed that I was charged $250 for an experience that was not complete and could not accommodate my needs at the last minute. There was room For my party of 14 plus 2 small kids. But that didn’t happen. I was under the impression theater the $250 was to reserve and that would be credited to my over all bill. The room was hot and the sun was unbearable.

    Dokyo DauntaunResponded on June 4, 2022I'm sorry that you had an unsatisfactory experience dining with us. We can only hold up to 14 people in the Private Dining Room due to the mural art not being damaged and limited space, which is stated when booking the room on open table, and also explained in the private messages. When booking the reservation, it also states that the deposit is non-refundable.

    Horrible experience, planned to go for a day and it ended up being closed. Google maps says they are open on Sundays however, once I arrived it was closed. It turns out that in their website it says they are closed on Sundays. FIX IT!!!!

    Dokyo DauntaunResponded on June 2, 2022Hi Ivan, we apologize for the inconvenience. We are currently changing our hours so that we can be open on Sundays - starting this upcoming Sunday. Google had said that it would take three days to process the change in our hours, however it posted a lot sooner than expected.

    We ordered two appetizers that took 25 min to receive. The edomame was cold. So while eating our appetizers we ordered 3 sushi Rolls and some drinks. 15 min later I asked our waiter about our drinks and he tells me he forgot to order them. Eventually the drinks show up. It took over an hr after ordering the sushi before we decided we were done waiting on the sushi. We closed our tab and left. In my conversation with my wife we concluded that the place also looked dirty. It is definitely not the place we once liked. That was our visit. They lost a customer

    When charging tip on big party, make sure service is excellent, asking for 1 drink 3x, and not splitting sushi rolls assuming couples are sharing a dish, need to ask more often if anything needed
