Excellent way to spend a birthday!

A group of 8 of us were at Roy's for the birthday of a colleague. The staff did everything to impress and make the B boy feel special (as well as the rest of us). Almost too many items on the menu and from what we had I dare say they are all good! The have a price fixed plate... read more

Food was fine...but service incredibly slow. Went for work dinner and everyone just wanted to walk out after three hours. Expect much more from this place.

I usually look for the best in all establishments but I would have to say my visit with a group of seven other guest was average. The service was fairly good. Drink orders were spot on. The potsticker appetizer is very salty and was tough. I had sushi and it was good. The roll was enormous I couldn't finish it... More

Great service as we spent an entire evening catching up with family. Waiter was amazing. We had sushi platter to start which was prepared perfectly. Cesar salad with Japanese spice was tasty. Beef short ribs were well marbled and delicious. Roy's trio of fish was very good except one cut was a little overdone. Two of our group had the... More

Very friendly and distinguished entree followed by a professional advice and wine choice. I was impressed they could offer a red wine which went well with the fish dish. Very nice plate make-up and stylish draping of the food. The waiter acted if was not there giving us the feeling of a private business meeting. Very good.

I had fish sampler - 3 types of fish for $38. It came in a long dish with 3 - 3"X1" size fish. One small rice ball on separate plate. No salad nor bread. Fish was not anything special. I am Japanese and I can cook better than this. My husband dish wasn't anything special and it was $39. He... More

This is a spectacular restaurant with amazing food and even better service. Every one working there makes you feel like a welcome guest from Don, the fantastic manager, to the bartenders and wait staff. I highly recommend the Leechee Kai Parina (not sure how it is spelled) for a great drink - I don't think it's on the menu anymore... More

Walked here from the Anaheim Hilton and sat in the lounge for a drink and appetizer. Aloha "Happy Hour" going on. Ordered a Mai Tai from the specially priced AH menu. $7.00. They also have a couple of offerings from Maui or Kona Brewing company, forget which. Surfboard lager for $3.00. Great deal. The appetizers were great. Barbecue Ribs were... More
