This Sushi restaurant was recommended by the Westin. We were able to get a table even though it was high season Christmas week, it was excellent for dinner. In fact we went back a few nights later to try more of the menu!

Yamaimo one of my most favorite foods ever ! In a 5* hamachi salad. Wow. Lobster tempura very good. Uni super fresh. Slow bar service and sushi chefs were colder than the sushi. But a great place !

When we had a taste for sushi while in Hawaii, we decided to look at TripAdvisor and when we came to the Doraku Sushi Waikiki, there were a lot of excellent Japanese reviews. And let's be honest, if you are from Japan, you should have a good idea of a good Japanese restaurant. We decided on the Doraku Sushi Waikiki... More

We were recommended to this place by someone at another restaurant. Having already eaten at another excellent sushi restaurant, we took a chance. And we were disappointed. Being only a party of 2, we were put in the bar area, which usually is a great place to experience a location. Unfortunately for this place, it meant that our server WAS... More

I chose to eat here because of the proximity to my hotel and the good trip advisor reviews. First off...... I found it difficult to find this place because it is in a mall. So for those of you that go here and have read this review. This place is in "The Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center" on the 3rd floor... More

First came here on our last trip to Hawaii 7 years ago and had to return to see if it was as good as we remembered! It is. This place is a standout Japanese restaurant in a city full of them. Make sure you track this place down

Great food, fantastic service and great atmosphere. Happy hour provides a number of delicious dishes and some great cocktails. Lychee Martini was my favorite with the Steak Yakatori. The eggplant miso is a must have. Finish off with the tempura brownie.

A buddy and I stopped in for dinner while on business in Honolulu. The fish and other fare was very good, especially when paired with some local beer. It's a little pricey, but then again the restaurant is in the midst of the tourist area in Waikiki. The service was average, but friendly. The front-end staff needs to smile more... More

One of the locals recommended this restaurant and the sushi was actually pretty good but we felt a little awkward on how they had at least 5 girls(hostess') out front that gave us a feeling that we were an inconvenience to them as they half huddled around trying to figure out what to do. We waited about 10-15mins which was... More
