Dozika is one of those rare restaurants that is consistently good and affordable. Pan-Asian menu has Thai and Japanese choices. Service is good. Conversation friendly and good place to take older children.

Had lunch here today. Never noticed the restaurant before. A friend invited me to join her. Food was delicious - well prepared, generous portion. Luncheon specials are interesting and very economical. Service was fine. I would gladly return.

I had a mediocre meal at Dozika the other night. I was missing Thai Sookdee and missing delicious Thai food. So, I tried Dozika. Unfortunately, the food had little flavor. I am still on the search for good Thai food on the North Shore.

At here before an event at Space. Staff was friendly, food was very good and had a varied menu. We mostly had appetizers and they were lovely (satay, spring rolls, chive dumplings, etc.). Nice sized restaurant.

We're here about once a month, mostly for happy hour meal specials, which are quite good. Mostly we get sushi, sashimi, and rolls. Shrimp tempura rolls are to die for! Have also tried bento box for lunch and thai entries...all good. Service is always fast...More

Sushi is good, but I'd say a bit pricy for what you get. The selection is standard. They do have a Korean beer that's not too common. But other then that, it's a pretty standard place.
