Time Out says
An Asian restaurant at St Katharine Docks Marina.
Eating at this Asian restaurant feels like you’ve left London. That’s partly because of the location: set on a secluded corner of St Katharine Docks Marina, look out of Dokke’s large glass windows and all you can see is water. It’s a seven-minute walk from the tube, but you get that romantic, holiday feeling that you’d never bump into anyone you know. It would be a good place to go if you were, say, having an affair.
The head chef here used to work on private islands – and you can tell. There were vegan options, dishes were complex and everything came sprinkled with tiny edible flowers. Sometimes that worked brilliantly: a plate of tender, beautifully gamey roe deer served with fresh blackberries and asparagus was exquisite. Also unexpectedly delicious were sticky chicken wings dipped in labneh. At points, though, things fell apart. A vegan curry was minuscule – there were more flowers on the plate than actual food – and Dokke’s very salty take on fish fingers made me long for Birds Eye.
But this place is by no means a straightforward case of style over substance. The space itself is refreshingly low key, with a relaxed open kitchen and charmingly haphazard service. And that view is nice. Not quite luxury-private-island nice, but as close as you’re going to get in the Docklands.

Visited here for the bottomless brunch. Been to very many bottomless brunches in London and I have to say for food quality and experience this one is very good. Whilst the bottomless brunch is only an hour at this restaurant the prosecco is a much better quality than some of the other brunches that just throw round cheap alcohol in the hopes to get everyone wrecked. This one is about taste and quality and the staff certainly make sure you have enough alcohol and get your full hours worth.
I visited Dokke on a late Saturday morning. Charming cosy interiors paired with lovely views of St Katherine's Docks. The food is very pretty (edible flowers everywhere) and super tasty - beautiful freshly squeezed juices, fabulous coffee and brunch with Asian/Scandinavian angle. The service was attentive and friendly - I will be coming back to while away the lazy weekend mornings in comfortable armchairs overlooking the quaint marina. I was almost tempted not sharing this rare find with anyone so as to keep it all for myself...If it becomes too busy, it will lose its charm. And plenty of charm it has...
