Doraku Waikiki, Honolulu

Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, Third Floor
2233 Kalakaua Avenue
Honolulu , Hawaii
Tel: 808 922 3323's insider take:

Waikiki is striving to become the new South Beach, so it's fitting that Kevin Aoki chose it as the location of his outpost of Lincoln Road sushi mainstay Doraku. Aoki, son of Benihana's Rocky Aoki, serves only mediocre food, but this large, comfortable restaurant and bar on the top floor of the refurbished Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center has found its niche as a place to see and be seen. It's often the first stop on the nightlife crawl, so order up a flight of sake (there are 20 options) or a classic cocktail, and see where the night leads. DJs spin on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays starting around 9 pm.

Sundays through Thursdays 11:30 am to 3 pm and 5 pm to midnight, Fridays and Saturdays 11:30 am to 3 pm and 5 pm to 2 am.
