The food was quite good, typical American style sushi with lots of sauces drowning the taste of any fresh fish. But that's OK you just do as the locals. Again while in Hawaii I am experiencing a grubby feel which again is felt when in the toilet maybe it's me but if you run a restaurant make sure the toilets... More

This place had excellent sushi dishes, quick service, and reasonable prices. I would definitely go there again--if I lived on the island.

We always look forward to coming to Doraku when we visit Hawaii !!! This our 4th visit and after we landed today (30 November 2016) we booked into the Outrigger and decided for a late lunch at Doraku. There weren't many people there, but a lot of staff, many of whom were putting up Christmas decorations. I ordered Sushi and... More

Took my two adult nephews here for dinner on their first visit to Hawaii. Doraku, as always, was top notch on service and food. Nephews enjoy their food and could not compliment Doraku's enough for their quality and variety of sushi. Atmosphere is great and the wait staff are awesome. Keep up the good work Doraku.

Doraku Sushi is located the 3rd floor of Royal Hawaiian Center and across the street from The Top of Waikiki. It is best location! The restaurant offers Lunch, Happy Hour and Dinner menus. I had some of Happy Hour menus which pricing is from $3 and all items under $10. I sat at the lanai table so that I was... More

This restaurant was a great surprise. Lured by good TA reviews, we ventured from our Waikiki condo for a Saturday night on the town. The food was very memorable. Great appie with the Tuna Takaki, White Dragon sushi roll was wonderful and the Torra Roll was mouth watering. The service was very attentive through the middle of the meal and... More

Restaurant upstairs in the Royal Hawaiian Centre. As it a bit quieter than street level there was no waiting. We requested a table of which there were many vacant, but were give high stools and a high table, much like you would find in a bar. We had sushi and tempura prawns. The food was good and reasonably priced, but... More

This was my second time to Doraku in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. My first experience a few years ago was great so I decided have a second take. As expected, the food was great! The freshness of the fish, the right seasonings to the dishes were on point and the ambiance perfect. What ruined the night was the service.... More

We came here twice with our four year old for dinner. Love the indoor/outdoor set up. We sat indoor but right next to the adjacent terrace. The evening breeze was refreshing. I loved their miso fish dish. Sushi was good too. Service was a bit slow the first time, but a lot faster the second time. There was just the... More
