The frying dragon roll was to die for. The misoyaki butterfish was delicious, as was the Waikiki sashimi platter. We ate at the sushi bar, where we enjoyed conversation with fellow Georgians. The bartender was attentive and very helpful. Think I could eat here every day.

We went to Roy's on our last night in Hawaii and we definitely saved the best til last. Service and food were excellent! They always have the primary server on the floor with a bus person and food servers going back and forth from the kitchen so there's always someone observing the guests and tables and easy to get someone's...

Took a walk from our hotel to this restaurant and decided to drop in for some drinks. They have nice outdoor seating perfect for people watching. Service was prompt and friendly. Though we just wanted some drinks, we perused the menu and found the selection very nice. They had amice collection of draft beers, and their signature cocktail was delicious.

For our last night in Hawaii, I was seeking a special evening to wrap-up the week celebrating my wife's 50th birthday. A new friend we met on a snorkeling cruise recommended Roy's, and we gave it a shot. We were not disappointed in the least! Pleasant greeting, prompt seating, extremely friendly and attentive wait staff - De Andre was the... More

This is the second time I have been to a Roy's. The food was excellent. The service was a bit rushed compared to a number of years ago at Roy's on Maui.

This is a fantastic restaurant for seafood. I had some generous medallions of fresh, seared ahi tuna, along with rolls and seaweed, and my wife had lobster and shrimp. We shared a spectacular banana upside down cake dessert. Great service and excellent food.

My husband is here working & I tagged along. He made the reservation (recommended) based off a friends praises. Our head waiter & assistant were very busy but we felt totally taken care of! It was out first time & they explained everything. I'm a bourbon drinker & my Old Fashion was wonderful. Spring rolls, escargot & crab cakes started... More

We were looking forward to a couple of dinners at Roy's, having enjoyed dining at Roy's previously in Waikiki and Chicago. Food and service were good, but it seems the menu has changed. Perhaps more Asian influence than previous visits? Our dinners were OK but expensive for what we had. We much preferred Tommy Bahama's (a real surprise) for food... More

Hawaii's best? Yes, after 28 years Roy's remains supreme for fusion Hawaiian/modern American food at its best, great value too. Busy, cool, and remains "the scene" now in Waikiki but the original Hawaii Kai still tops all others and there are many in Waikiki.
