    We were impressed the first few times we came. The place started out strong. We sat and got told that they were running out of sushi... we waited 2 hours to receive subpar rolls & I only say this because we came here a lot when it first opened. Their menu didn't match what was available either (not just from running out of sushi). I asked about a few rolls, and it wasn't an option (she said the menu was outdated). It used to be outstanding and authentic. The edemame was severely undercooked, so I can't even find a positive. It was really overpriced overall. The staff was kind, so there's that.

    Overall, not a place to try again. Food was subpar even for Corpus Christi. The sushi took roughly an hour to get our table even with 4 different sushi stations. The fish inside didn’t taste fresh either. Wait staff were very helpful and the Korean food was delicious.

    I was so disappointed. My Pot Belly was under cook and didn't have the Kimchi Sides or sauce.When asked about what Broth use in the Shi Ramen Waiter says he didn't know because it was a package broth.Lacked The Flavors I Once Loved . Save your money and time.

    Need more lighting, couldn't see what I was eating, and couldn't enjoy myself or my family, because I couldn't see them. My dinner was under cooked, , if I had an option to how I wanted my steak cooked, that question was never asked. Nice bar, but I felt we were to close to the bar, and could here customers cursing, and trying to enjoy my dinner with kids present. Overall I wasn't impressed with what everybody's else's experience was. I will try once more, because my wife loves eating there. I'm sure it could be a better experience, Thanks

    We came here 1.5 years ago and had a extremely great experience. But not yesterday! Drinks are watered down. The sushi was quality of a gas station and we couldn’t eat it (for safety reasons). The Korean dish was nice, nothing great. Appetizer was covered in salt. Will never go back! The service was outstanding though. We were hungry after and went to Whataburger. Also not sure why they had to take my credit card for reservation for such experience. I was expecting elite dining when reservations are made with credit card number.

    We were very rudely greeted by the manager. We had originally made the reservation for 8 people. Three of those ended up not being able to come. I called twice that day leaving a message to let them know that we would be a party of five, not 8. This woman was extremely rude, rolling her eyes, and arguing with us that we would need to pay a $20 no-show fee since 3 of our guests did not come; while the five of us were standing right there.. we were not a no-show! Finally she said she would waive the fee only this once, still speaking very rudely. There were very few people in the restaurant. 95% of the tables were open. It was a Sunday night. Instead of seating us at the table that was already set for us for 8 people, she had us seated all the way in the back of a side room in the dark right outside the restroom. We ordered drinks from our very polite waiter and then asked for our check after finishing our one drink. We left and went elsewhere to have dinner. We will not be going back to Dokyo Dauntaun. Very unreasonable, unprofessional, unnecessary treatment by this lady who I believe was a manager.

    Good drink menu though odd to advertise Fall 2023 drinks and not serve them. Squid and gyoza appy top notch. Sushi just ok, nothing special. Service was not great, missed orders, slow kitchen, slow refills, slow clearings, etc. 4/5 star prices for 3 star experience.

    Our server Frank had the most welcoming smile. He was very accommodating and explained everything we needed explained from the menu. The suggested the restaurants version of the Ol’Fashion and it was amazing. The roll he suggested was equally as delicious- he made our experience that much better. Great service- great good- great prices and a fresh cup of coffee brewed for us to enjoy with dessert … my BFF was very happy.

    Our server, Katalina, was gracious enough to clarify some gluten free options for us - immediately the ambience feels underground and not another chain restaurant. The drinks transport us to what their name suggests. The Monsoon had a very melancholy feeling, like on an island coast on an overcast evening, awaiting imminent storms. The sushi was excellent, great textures and flavors. If you plan for dinner and drinks, it can get pricey, but for date night or special event it’s worth many recurring shots.
