Considering the location of Doraku Sushi, the prices here are pretty good. They have a wide selection of sushi, noodles, rolls and other seafood dishes. All our dishes were pretty tasty. Service was good too.

Centrally located in central Waikiki. Seafood very fresh, and prices range depending on your budget. Definitely worth a visit!

Wonderful fresh maki sushi rolls in the Royal Hawaiian SHopping center. Always jammed with tourists. Nobu's and Roy's are way better and take reservations.

Stumbled upon Doraku while shopping at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Centre. We were seated promptly, and the server offered us suggestions about the menu. Our food arrived quickly and was delicious! Lots of options, lots of variations on sushi. Would definitely go again!

Probably the better of the sushi places we have tried. Menu was quite good and expansive. We were sat on the "community" table which was fine. Just a large table they stick randoms on. As seems to be a developing theme for Waikiki, the service was pretty ordinary. Impersonal and definitely felt like we were just number.

I booked this restaurant online based on its reviews. When we got there, there was no record of our reservation but they gave us a table anyway. They also told us that sometimes the online reservations don't always make it across to them so beware. Our family of 4 had several different dishes and weren't disappointed. All the dishes we...
