“Japanese food with panache”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by several friends who had eaten here and loved it. Although a little difficult to find, it is well worth the effort to dine here. Like most restaurants here you have to wait for a table but it is well worth while. The subdued atmosphere and low lighting and decor sets the mood for high expectations.
With a choice of community tables or private ones it doesnt take too long to get your seat.
The variety and quality of food is fabulous. Their special rolls included the Double Happines and Emperor which were super as was the tempura lobster. Our bottle of Italian wine $35 and pot of saki bought our bill to $130, worth every cent. We will go back again before the week is over.

“Delicious sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We choose Doraku sushi just by coincidence, during obr evening walk along waikiki beach. We have arrived at 6 pm. We choose place near bar because we had to wait only 5 minutes in comparision with 45 mins waiting time for table. We have ordered sushi and several kind of rolls. sushi and rolls was delicious especiall local " Lava ... Rolls" . So I can recommend this restaurant to all sushi eaters. We were 4 persons and whole dinner including beer was cost about 180$.

“Best sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We loved this restaurant. Great decor and atmosphere. The specialty sushi rolls were superb especially the red dragon roll. The restaurant was reasonably priced and service was great. Highly recommend this little gem.
