This was our second time at Zushi Dozo BYOB and it was just as good, if not better than the first time. As soon as walked in, the server remembered us from our first visit on Valentine's Day (we ordered a lot of food!). We came back specifically for the spicy ramen which we ordered again along with the udon noodles. Both were delicious! I actually said to my bf I'm glad we came because the public is concerned about the Coronavirus - which they should be- but this doesn't mean you have to avoid Asian cuisine. And people kept trickling in as we were dining, so I'm glad others had similar thoughts. Please don't skip out on excellent restaurants like these because they have nothing to do with the ongoing pandemic - the food is cooked here and handled well and you can tell that simply by tasting it. I normally wouldn't add this into a review of a restaurant but it's important that people understand this and I'm going to tell everyone I know to come here!

My boyfriend and I went there for Valentine’s Day and it was the perfect choice! We got two speciality rolls, the shrimp shumai, and the spicy ramen. Everything was delicious. We’ll be back and bring friends!

Five of us decided to try Zushi Dozo around dinner time on a Sunday. The place was pretty empty. The Wait Staff couldn't have been nicer. My husband order a bowl of shrimp ramen and when it arrived it was too hot for his palate. They happily remade an order without the "hot" spices and it was very good. The selection is amazing...especially the sushi menu. We'll go back.

Gave them an open table gift card with a balance on it and a card for the payment. They made us call the number on the card to get the balance of our gift card and told us they could only process it more than once. We asked if they could but the gentleman behind the counter just said we needed to get the balance. Our waitress was very nice, but the experience with that gentleman made us not want to go back there anymore.

Sorry. Many people don't understand "gift card" process at the restaurant. Gift cards at the restaurant don't work like any other retail stores because of tip. Also i mention we can't check balance our system isn't set up that way to check. also it is your responsibility to know what you have on your stuff. YOU IDIOT>.. Stop being lazy and know our fact before you say dumb stuff. We do not want customers like you to begin with please don't be an IDIOT!!!

Disappointed. Food was not as expected. They do not serve regular soy sauce, and the sweetness of the low sodium soy sauce ruined the flavor sushi and sashimi. Server was not accommodating. We wanted to try this restaurant due to the recommendations of Open Table, but with so many excellent Japanese in this area, we will not return.

we've been going there as our "go to" sushi bar for a few months. it's very small so make a reservation and don't think this a full blown restaurant, it's not. if you know sushi then you will be highly impressed, the owners work there and will come out and chat if it's not too busy. the chef was trained in Japan and it shows. everything is ultra fresh and made to order. between the high quality of food and the friendly owners Dozo is a hit with us.

We had all of favorites tonight: Salmon Tataki, tuna poke, roll of grace, ocean breeze salad, and chef’s pick sashimi deluxe - all absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Hands down our favorite sushi restaurant anywhere, and we’ve eaten at so many over the years we’ve lost count. Zushi Dozo never, ever disappoints.

this is a well rounded Sushi joint. it's very small and has the typical strip mall layout but who cares? the food is made to order so you have to wait but well worth it. almost all the workers are owners as well so they really care. you can definitely taste the quality of food and it's very obvious the chef is talented.
It's good to see there are still sushi joints who believe in quality over jamming people into their seats.

It was my time there, the place is small, cozy & clean. The service was fast & friendly. I ordered the philly roll but they put cucumbers instead of avocado so they changed it for me & I had 2 orders. My friend enjoyed the dragon roll & fried chicken. He said it was great. The price is affordable. My friend & I talked for a while after eating & we were not rushed out. I would recommend zushi dozo to my family & friends.

Zushi Dozo has very good fish and the nigiri is extremely well proportioned with a great ratio of fish to rice. For South Jersey this seems to be uncommon with a lot of sushi places giving you huge globs of rice. They don't have a ton of specialty rolls, but the ones they do have are fantastic. We enjoy coming here, it's one of our favorite sushi places.

We always order from Zushi Dozo! Decided to dine-in and loved it: Family own, cozy, fresh and friendly! Joe and Grace are the best and their sushi is the best we had ever!!! Our autistic son only eats their sushi and they are so great: will accomodate you and make you fell part of the family. BYOB and try Zushi Dozo, you will come back again, promise! It is one of those restaurants where you can eat, relax, and enjoy your meal with people that care.

This place is an excellent find. The best Ramen I've ever had and fresh delicious sushi as well. Note: if you like very spicy go for #5 level spice. They will try and talk you out of it but if you are a hot enthusiast insist on it : )

We enjoyed our Saturday night meal at Zushi Dozo. It was our first visit to this restaurant, located in one of any Rte 70 Strip Malls in Cherry Hill. My wife and I were craving Sashimi and the good reviews for this place inspired us to check it out. It is BYO, which is always as plus...
We started our meal with an Ocean Breeze Salad, which was comprised of seaweed, Spring Mix, crunchy salmon skin and a nice Ponzu dressing--quite delicious! We also got a Salmon Tataki, which featured lightly seared salmon, wrapped around some mango and crabmeat (not crab stick!), which was also very good.
The Sashimi should have been the star of the show, and, while the fish was okay, the overall presentation was slightly underwhelming--no Shiso leaves or anything else to make it more than a plate of raw fish. Some of the pcs, still a tad frozen, and overall, in my opinion, not worth the $36 they were asking for it.
The service was very efficient despite every table being full, and overall an enjoyable experience.
