All three of us in my party LOVED our food. Service was excellent. We dined in at the Booze Box downstairs. Spicy maki tuna rolls, salmon and albacore rolls and tuna truffle nigiri were excellent. Gluten free menu available.Dietary restrictions: Gluten free menu available. Amazingly, everything I wanted to try was on the gluten free menu. The tuna truffle nigiri bites were my favorite.

Not sure if it was an off night, but it just was not that good. The rice used for the sushi was mushy and bland, so the entire meal was just mediocre at best. Had higher expectations for price point.

I recently booked a reservation to try out Yokocho but had to cancel when arriving as my partner was looking for something more filling. Without hesitation, Susan jumped in to assist informing us she could get us into Sushi Doku. Not only did she walk us over, but we were then quickly seated and given such great service from both Susan and the team. Thank you so much for allowing us to still dine with you all. The food was incredible. Such great customer service.

What a gem! We came here for date night, food was absolutely delicious. We sat at the sushi bar and it was the best decision. Fish was super fresh and their sauces were super flavorful. Staff were all very attentive and accommodating, service was great and ambience was very date night vibes. Must try the matcha cheesecake.

Great spot for a casual sushi lunch or dinner. The best part is they typically have availability for walk-in which is rare in the west loop area. The sushi tastes fresh and they’re pretty quick to get your food to your table for when you’re feeling just a tad hangry

Honestly I was kind of disappointed with our experience. Don’t get me wrong, the food was good but I feel like there is so much hype around this restaurant and I just don’t get it. The overall atmosphere of the restaurant was lacking. I thought it would be a lot nicer on the inside, the photos online are deceiving. There really was no ambiance from what I saw so we opted to sit outside. It was nice weather so that was nice but it was nothing special. I told our server we were there celebrating a birthday and they didn’t acknowledge it at all. Overall would not seek out to dine here again as there’s many sushi restaurants just as good (food wise) with better ambience. Would pass next time

Met a friend on a lovely summer afternoon to sit on the patio at Sushi Dokku for cocktails and a few small bites. Always fresh and interesting! My personal favorite is the Tuna Truffle Nigiri, but you can’t go wrong with any selection…and their Sake selection is out of this world!

Went downstairs to the Booze Box Lounge. It was (as assumed) quite busy! We had to wait nearly 1hour for a table for 4, but had a fun time nonetheless. It was definitely loud, hampering any conversation and service was slow because of the quantity of people. But the drinks were great and the food was delicious!

The menu has so many good different options and please, takoyaki for appetizer is a must! The maki rolls were well served but I particularly loved the chef dressed nigiris. I am still dreaming about the Tuna Truffle. If you’re looking for “all you can eat on a budget” and don’t care about quality, maybe this is not the place for you.Just be aware that some plates might take longer but I guess that was ok considering it was a busy Friday night dinner. I will come back to taste the rest of the menu for sure!

If you’re a macha lover you will want to come here to try the macha cheese cake! The food was amazing and great neighbor spot.

They were fully booked on their reservations page, but we went there to get on the waitlist and turned out there were many tables available, so I would try even if the page is full.Great sushi and quality, the scallop nigiri bites is delicious! Our highlight. We also tried the spinach salad which turned out very tasty, and I highly recommend the takoyakis.The miso salmon roll and the dragon are also very good. Large portions, nice cocktails, fair price! Definitely coming back!

My husband and I had reservations for Booze Box, the speakeasy bar below Sushi Dokku. The chicken gyoza came out a bit cold, but everything else was incredible. We shared the Dragon and Hot Daisy rolls, which was the perfect amount of sushi. The DJ came on around 8:15 and the lowfi vibes were immaculate. The service was amazing and we look forward to coming back.

Upon my first time visiting the restaurant I immediately noticed that the seating accommodations were only suitable for average to smaller people. The tables are placed incredibly close to each other and the booths were very narrow. When I noticed the host was taking us to a booth I explained to them I knew it was not going to accommodate me and asked for other seating arrangements. At this point our party was taken to a downstairs dining area which had another booth that I had to squeeze myself into. While the food was mostly immaculate and the service was excellent, my dining experience was abysmal due to my seating arrangement squeezing my stomach during my entire dining experience. If you are a moderately large to large person, this is not the place for you to dine.
