Last November (2016), I attended a birthday dinner at Dozo, a fine dining sushi restaurant in sushi. I was surprised by Dozo and I think their marketing might be slightly misleading. They market themselves as a “fine dining” restaurant, therefore I expected high prices, amazing quality and taste, and outstanding presentation. What I received was just a tiny bit above average for a relatively average price. Despite the wrong first impression I wasn’t disappointed with the food and service for the price I paid at the end of the meal.
We ordered a main each along with a selection of different sushi to share. The portion sizes for the mains were pretty decent so we were all pretty full by the end the meal.
The meal and company of the evening were really enjoyable. We had a great laugh and the restaurant staff didn’t seem to might that we were a bit loud. I’m not in a hurry to go back to Dozo but I will eat there again in the future.
We ended our meal with a Chinese fresh fruit and cream birthday cake for the birthday boy. These are my favourite type of cakes.
If you’re ever bored of the cakes you buy from the supermarkets, give one of these cakes from the Chinese bakeries a try. They usually have a good selection every day so you won’t need to order in advance. If you go early enough, you might even be able to grab one of the slightly more interesting flavours like mango.
