I had the butterfish and ribs, my partner had the chicken. Overall we were impressed with the service and the food and was definitely one of our highlight meals dining in Honolulu. Would recommend.

Finally, a good restaurant with amazing food & fantastic service! After being at several other local restaurants that left us disappointed, Roy’s was fantastic. The service is unmatched. They were busy tonight (~8:30pm), but they brought out all of our appetizers & dishes incredibly fast,...More

We had a delicious and generous meal here. The staff were just the right level of “attentive” and the service was prompt and efficient. Roy’s is a tight ship and well deserving of its reputation.

Perhaps I set my expectations too high, but the service we received here would have been bad if we'd been eating at Red Lobster, I certainly wasn't expecting it when paying $200+ for two people. Perhaps it was because we visited yesterday, during the tropical...More

Hi. We dined there at 7pm on June 29th and sat at one of the outdoor tables. Hope this helps. The food was still good, we just missed the total experience enjoyed earlier in our holiday.

I didn't find the restaurant overly cold at all, but as mentioned above there is plenty of outdoor seating you could try. I'd agree with an earlier reply to give them a quick call too. Hope you enjoy it!
