Nicely located at quaint St. Katharine Docks; the location next to the water is perfect. We had a nice breeze the whole time. The table arrangements tend to emphasize large communal tables vs few individual tables. So, space is limited. Drinks were slow but generally good.
The menu online did not match the menu in the restaurant. The food was sharing style which seems to be in vogue when many small but pricey plates are offered. Prices varied quite a bit for each plate but would be generally considered high. In order to meet the waiter recommended standard of 4 plates per person, we would have had to order nearly the whole menu. In the end, we ordered four total and that was enough for the two of us. The menu is small and changing frequently from what we understand thus maybe the mismatch between online and in-store menu.
We ordered four dishes. The only dish that we would get again was the sashimi plate. The fish was fresh and tender.
All the other plates tasted rather bland and could have come from any deep fryer. The crab was fighting us with each bite, the single chicken leg for close to £20 was hard to approach, etc.
Overall, we believe Dokke is more targeted for people looking for dining-experience, all the things besides the food, rather than being concerned with the underlying food and value.
We would not recommend it for dining but for drinks and ambience. There is simply too large a disconnect between food, taste, and price.

Amazing! The food was out of this world, this small restaurant is in a lovely setting looking over the marina. Everything about the evening was perfect, the staff were so helpful and friendly. The dishes were explained to us and the standard of presentation and above all taste was exceptional I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back again in the future.

Brunch was incredibly disappointing. The food looks wonderful but the taste was very average. The noodles were really over cooked and the broth didn’t have any taste. The salmon hash was also not very tasty at all. The best was the charcoal sharing bread.

Tasteless food, bad service (people always walking around you never feel like properly relaxing). Volcano egg was too spicy.
Presentation is very nice, plates look amazing but no flavor

Really disappointed. A friend visited this restaurant one of my friends was poorly and asked for a hot water with lemon, while the rest of us ordered coffees...second eye roll, the waiter was clearly not impressed with her request. The waiter then took our food order, without writing a single thing down. When my friend questioned whether there was avocado in a dish (she doesn't like it), he had no idea & made my friend feel like she's was causing him a huge inconvenience by asking..along with a myriad of eye-rolling at her. Our drinks arrived all fine. We ordered to begin with a sharing dish to come before our mains. After waiting for 40minutes, I enquired if our food would be along any time soon to which I got the most sarcastic fake smile, followed by eye-roll response, that the food would be along soon. 10 minute after that, a disappointing array of meals arrived, all at once, despite us ordering the sharer first. The meal described to come with smoked salmon, contained none. The flamboyant looking cloud eggs, completely tasteless. I must admit, the sharer bread was lovely, as was my personal meal of waffle and buttermilk chicken, but my friends left still hungry (as did I) and thoroughly dissatisfied, and with a really bad taste in my mouth about the entire experience. The food is a personal preference thing however I found the service at this establishment to be absolutely abysmal, really quite rude, and really lets the place down.

Lovely setting by the docks. The front window is wonderfully sunny in the morning, and there's also a terrace to the side, beside the water, where they have tables under umbrellas - there are blankets and heaters too so it's a nice place to sit all year round. The food is incredibly scrumptious and inventive. Try the eggs benedict, which is like nothing I've had before and DELICIOUS. And the coffee is off the charts, the best coffee in London, strong and balanced.

All the food are artworks! They all look very carefully decorated and their flavor actually tasted interesting. The ambience is really nice with bright sunshine in. If you expect good environment and good looking food, here is the choice. But don't expect too much on the taste of the food.

Really enjoyable 'bottomless brunch' experience at this lovely spot on St Katharine Docks. The food was delicious & the prose could flowed. Slight disadvantage is the trek to the public toilets but didn't detract too much from our enjoyment

I was very impressed with the food at Dokke. It's not often that I leave a restaurant thinking the food over-delivered to my expectations going in. This place certainly did. A very relaxed, laid back vibe, great location at the dock with views of the water many a landmark. The open plan kitchen is a really fun feature and diners do get to see the masters at work.
I will be going back to Dokke again and I have happily recommended it to my friends.

Myself and a group of friend's visited Dokke for the first time for the bottomless brunch and it was lovely! The service was attentive and we never had an empty glass! The food was amazing and the added surprises were a great treat! I'd definitely recommend - particularly on a sunny day so you can sit outside!

This is the second visit and we was for sure not disepointed.
The food was fantastic to look at and tasted so gooood with so much variasions in taste.
It is a mix of asian and western style with use of local ingidienses.
It also have engaged people working and presenting the food with enthusiasme, speaking with owner and head cheef about the food and how he was thinking when planning the menu was indeed of big interrest.
Thanks for an fantastic evening

Beautiful location in St Katherine's Dock, favourite spot on a sunny day. Went with a friend who's vegetarian and found plenty of delicious options on the menu. Food is exquisite aesthetically and doesn't disappoint for the flavours.
The cheesecake was the best I've ever tasted, absolutely out-of-this-world. (The more polite version of how my friend described it!)
Service is superb, attentive without being intrusive, perfect for a long chat. Love it.
