We had dinner there last Sunday 8.1. Food was excellent, so was service. That's why we went there again tonight (Saturday). Place was very busy, and so was the staff. Food kept going to wrong tables. No apologies, just "I don't know why this is here". Apetizers didn't come at the same time and main course came before apetizer. Nothing... More

Flew into Honolulu for the Christmas holidays, staying at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel with the family. Looking for someplace close after we checked in and came across this fabulous sushi place. Everything in Hawaii is crowded during the holidays and Doraku was no exception. We waited 30 minutes for a table but it was well worth it. Great service and... More

This was the first place i ate and I happened to show up during happy hour. Deals are good for happy hour and the basic California roll was delicious. I went back a second time during my stay and was less impressed with the food. I recommend the Chicken Teriyaki dish; it comes with fresh pineapple!

Food was fantastic. Wicked presentation. Great atmosphere. Sadly the bartender was more interested in her cell phone than engaging with her customers. Took the order and that was it. Too bad as the bar really has potential to be rockin with the right personality behind it.

Fresh generic sushi. A little expensive but was good. They don't have very many basic rolls. All the rolls were specialty rolls about 15+ per roll. didn't wait long to get seated.

Great Atmosphere with great views! Service was average and that is being nice! We didn't have to wait and got sitted right away but felt ignored when we got our food. Good deals but felt the steak steaks were small even for the Happy Hour Price.

Five stars for the vibe and locale if you sit outside, four stars for the food. I'd go again. Went on the busy holiday week and we had to wait about 30 minutes for a table (they were not doing reservations during the holiday week). I always feel good going to a Japanese restaurant and seeing that the majority of... More
