Doraku

The doraku roll was so delicious. The ahi poke was fresh and flavourful. Huge menu and centally located in the Royal Hawaiian shopping centre. The server was courteous. They looked busy during happy hours. Loved this place and hope to return soon.

The Doraku is on its own level of amazing. You must go as soon as possible. It's perfect for any time of the day. It's a hit.

Ate here twice during our visit to Waikiki -- the first time, great sushi (rolls), not bad prices, but didn't really drink. The second time, had two largish "house" sakes for two people - $50! Atmosphere is great, but won't go back.

Friendly service and probably the best sushi I've ever had. We ordered 6 rolls for the 2 of us. They're very generous with their portions, we were just that hungry. Everything we tried was 10/10. I can't speak for the rest of their menu as I haven't tried anything else but their sushi is ahhhmazing. Rolls are between 11 and... More

The seafood here was really fresh, prepared beautifully. We had excellent service, and their happy hour is every day. We went back again a few days later.

I've been craving for sushi rolls for the longest times; and Doraku didn't disappoint!! We ordered 5 different type of rolls; and all were excellent. My favourites were red dragon roll and south beach roll. They were soooo good! Another must try item is the ahi poke. The tuna is fresh and it is delicious! I would highly recommend this... More

Same sushi we had accross the street in a supermarket. Not worth the money. Nothing special. Just go to Foodland supermarket and be happy with food. Servers are also airheads !! Dont wanna take care of customer simple wishes. Stay away. Go to Sushi ii in ala moana center for real sushi restaurant.

Server Brittany was great.. Very attentive to my wife's dietary restrictions. Happy hour is 4-6pm everyday and has hot/cold dish selections available at fair prices. I felt the California and Dragon rolls were amazing. Also interesting to read the back of the menu, as its a letter from one of Rocky Aoki sons (name eludes me). Depending on seating, you... More

We got off to a poor start with a table adjacent to the toilets. The immediate area smelt of toilet cleaning fluid (at best...). We were reseated and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. Large range of sushi, sashimi and sake. Very fresh as evidenced by dragon rolls, edamame, ahi poke. Friendly server. Recommended.
