    The Emperor Roll was awesome! Can't just order one! Love the 10% Foursquare discount. Can't beat that :D

    No one mentioned that to get the happy hour discount, you have to sit at the bar. It's all good, we still got a 10% discount with this application. We liked everything we ordered! Service was quick!

    The hamachi (pic) from cold plates sec was delicious, among other rolls and hot plates ordered. Try to grab seats along the open windows to enjoy the Hawaiian breeze

    Beef tataki and the lomi lomi roll on the happy hour menu are awesome. 1hr validated parking as well. The emperor roll everyone is raving about is a little rich for my taste.

    So delicious, go during happy hour for awesome deals. Try the emperor roll and geisha roll, they are delicious. Also the sweet & hot Edamame is fantastic

    1st tip ever but this place is deserving. Family party of 9 & not a single complaint. Top picks: either seabass, emperor & volcano roll, tataki, yellowtail cheek, doraku seafood salad. Strong drinks!

    This place is killer! Food is cheap and the happy was the best deal in town. Garlic edamame $3.50, Ahi Poke $5.00 (fking great), tuna tataki (yeah!!), etc, and the drinks! Out server Vuong was great.

    We were seated outside in the wonderful Hawaiian night breeze. Firecracker shrimp were tasty followed by White Dragon roll which was even better. Will visit Doraku again!

    Don't get the Cucumber Eel roll unless you know you like eel, has a very strong flavor. Red dragon roll and California roll are both delicious. I was freezing the whole time I was there. Staff was meh

    Wasn't impressed with their special rolls (Emperor and God of Fire) but the traditional sushi was great. Rolls could be rolled better but the ingredients were super fresh and delicious.

    Fish is fresh. Emperor roll is great. Brownie tempura reminds me of fried Oreos, of u have ever had them. It's not as good at the emperor roll.

    Edamame as an appetizer always! Emperor rolls and red dragon are the best ones! Green tea is the perfect match

    Happy hour is 4pm to 6pm. Pork belly soba and the tempura brownie were great. Emporer roll was disappointing, but worth a try.

    Of course you'll roll over their sushi rolls. Bad puns aside, the choices and combinations of their selection of sushi rolls are excitingly different yet accessible.

    I stop here for sushi at least once on trips to Honolulu/Waikiki and usually get any one of their spicy rolls.

    Fish was super fresh. Ordered the omakase and some extras. Super delicious. Banana flambé was the best.

    If you're an Irish whiskey lover, the Jameson ginger has a lemon & ginger root garnish. Absolutely fantastic.

    Be careful where you sit at the bar. The humidifier was dripping on us while we ate and the staff had to come twice to wipe it off quickly before it fell. We were dripped on at least once.

    You MUST order the Emperor Roll. Soooo delish!Come for Happy Hour (M-F 5-7) for great prices on basic rolls and Kirin beer. The tuna tataki is a win for $5!

    Use the foursquare "special offer" if it's still going on! Sushi is decent. You can order a martini with "sake" in it for a little more $, instead of vodka. Don't know why they don't have "saketinis".

    Their orders (e.g. ahi poke, chicken, etc.) come without rice. Be ready to pay $2.50 for a miniature bowl of rice.
