    I made a reservation to bring an out of town friend in before a concert. I had been to Dokyo dozens of times and always had a good experience prior. Dokyo was too busy for the staff to keep up which led to slow service and food being delivered that was basically cold. The sushi chefs were backed up for 45+ minutes so that killed getting what we came for. We were there over an hour and managed a round of drinks and appetizers. The server was pretty rude at the end of it all explaining that the slow service is regular and should be expected. Very disappointing!!!

    Our waiter was on a roll with his attentiveness and suggestions. Our appetizers and drinks were excellent. Then came the main course. We were a party of 10 and this was an office party. When the Barbeque beef don was delivered to the 5 who ordered it the dish was barely warm . I was disappointed for I had had it on several occasions and it was scalding hot in the ceramic bowels. How the wait staff could not notice is beyond me. Once I complained the manager discounted them and had new meals served. This should never have happened .

    Server was attentive and on top of everything. Only the kitchen must’ve been busy or working slow because our food took about 45 minutes to be served. Server did compensate with free saki and miso soup. I would definitely go back because the food was very good and the drinks were very different from the normal restaurants.

    Best Japanese restaurant South of San Antonio, great drinks, great atmosphere. The atmosphere matched the prices, so if you’re looking for cheap, this is not your place. It keeps the riff-raff out.

    The sushi and drinks were amazing. We had three sushi rolls and all were flavorful and fresh. We recommend the specialty drinks. I typically don’t order drinks with strange names, but I am glad we did. The service was excellent as well. We recommend a seat at the cocktail bar. The bartenders put on a good show!

    Sadly, the quality of their specialty rolls and sashimi has dramatically dropped over the last few months while prices have increased. The service is great though and overall vibe of the place remains consistent.

    Food, drinks, and service were amazing. If you are looking for a quiet place to dine, this may not be the vibe you are looking for. But, I must add that we were sat near a very loud and obnoxious table and when we asked to be moved the hostess and waitress were very accommodating. Overall, we had a very nice birthday dinner.

    Dokyo DauntaunResponded on September 24, 2022Yes, we have very good acoustics, LOL. So glad the hostess was able to accommodate your table for a more enjoyable experience! Come back soon!

    Wonderful evening celebrating my GFs birthday. Our server Roy was lovely never rushed us to order and didn’t keep bothering us but was attentive enough for us to never be without water- spirits or food. The young lady that kept coming to ensure we did not have an empty used plate on the table was super polite like a ninja- great food!

    Our waiter Brendan was excellent! He made excellent recommendations on drinks and food. He has excellent knowledge of the menu and what goes in to each dish. And drink! Very impressed with this young man’s knowledge of the food and drinks. We even inquired about a drink from a different restaurant and he went the extra mile to speak to the owner and the owner sister to pin down what was in it! That was really sweet! Definitely coming back.

    We waited hours for our food while the waiter waited everyone else. She forgot our food and was being so ugly telling us horrible remarks. I could understand if we were being ugly to her, but we weren’t I was in shock of the service.

    Dokyo DauntaunResponded on September 5, 2022We are sorry again this happened. The server has been spoken to and we hope you give us another chance to make this right. Just mention my name, Liz, and we will get you one of our pancake appetizers on the house at your next visit! They're part of our Korean menu and so good, my favorite is the seafood with the sauce and a little sambal for dipping.

    Went with a party of 4. Were greater and seated immediately. Brayden was our server. He was very nice and got the vibe of the night. The FOH was on it. BOH what’s up? Food came out staggered to an unorganized point. I know kitchen staff is hard to find but this was not planned or organized. If you have one guy back there with a pan, don’t have such an extensive menu. I got my sushi in a good timeframe. One of our party got their kitchen dish at the same time. 10 minutes later another came out and 20 minutes after that the last came out. So almost 30 minutes between individual dinners coming out. Brayden checked in on us and stayed on top of it without us having to say anything to him. So if you want to go for a quick dinner not the place. If you were planning on hanging out and picking and drinking. Good spot.

    Dokyo DauntaunResponded on September 5, 2022So glad Braedon was such a help for you guys during dinner and very sorry to hear about the food situation, We are working on it. Thank you for your visit and review!!

    This was our second time eating here and it was not as good as the first time. I was disappointed in the size of the fish on yellowtail sushi. I ordered salmon sushi and got smoked salmon sushi. When I mentioned it to our server, she said “ Oh you wanted the other salmon?’ The sushi nachos were really good. I liked the Hokkaido roll also. I will go there again but at this price pint, I really expect a 5 star experience.

    Dokyo DauntaunResponded on September 5, 2022Thank you for your review we will work on these issues!
