Restaurant of the Week: Dori Hand Roll Bar & Ramen

Located in Downtown Phoenix at the Camelback Colonnade is Dori Hand Roll Bar & Ramen—the Valley’s first-hand roll bar and ramen restaurant.

The concept for the space comes from the Los Angeles-based Ahi Mahi Group, along with the Arizona-based Wade Foster Hospitality group. The powerhouse companies have joined forces with local, award-winning ramen chef Jared Lupin to introduce this first-of-its-kind hand roll bar to the Valley.

Dori is built off of a street-style roll experience—think a hole-in-the-wall Asian fusion spot elevated by DIY sushi creations and incomparable hospitality.

Hand roll bars offer an experiential and intimate space for guests, as visitors are invited to sit at a bar in front of a personal hand roll chef. As the decadent dishes are prepared, diners can witness each step in the food curation process up-close—ultimately providing a new sense of appreciation for the art of hand roll cuisine.


Unlike the “maki” classic sushi roll style—which is a cylinder roll shape cut into six to eight pieces—Dori specializes in “temaki” rolls, cylinder-shaped rolls left in one piece and wrapped with nori, fish and rice.

Dori offers more than 10 ramen options, as well as focal sushi dishes made with salmon, yellow tail, ahi tuna, eel and scallops. Currently, the restaurant is now also offering $3 hand roll Tuesdays—available for dine-in only. 

Dori Hand Roll Bar & Ramen is open for dine in, take out or delivery, and the eatery is open everyday from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
