Doraku, located on 1579 Dresden Row, is the epitome of delicious simplicity. This tiny hole in the wall serves up some of the freshest fish that Halifax has to offer. It is especially reassuring to know that Doraku is closed on Mondays since fish deliveries are made on Tuesday mornings. So you can be sure that when you order a meal at this restaurant, you’re not being served the dregs. What’s more is the amazing value that Doraku has to offer. Even if you’re low on cash, you can still enjoy Doraku’s weekday lunch specials. Their combos range from $7.00 to $9.95, which beats much of its competition.
In terms of its ambiance, Doraku is a cozy, warm, and inviting place to eat. You can even get some peace and quiet by requesting a private booth. So when exams are wearing you down and you just can’t put up with another meal at residence, think about trying out Doraku. The friendly servers will make you feel right at home while nursing your academic woes with tasty spicy tuna rolls and piping hot miso soup.
