I have had 2 experiences with Roy's in the last 6 months or so. The first was during restaurant week when we decided to try Roy's out with a couple we were taking out for a thank you. Our server was extremely rude, seemed frustrated when we asked to see a restaurant week menu, telling us that he didn't have... More

While the food was very good, the amount of food was incredibly small for the price. Also, don't order a glass of wine - you'll be lucky if you get 3 ounces. Might as well order a bottle - at least you know what you are getting.

Great experience at this beautiful restaurant. Great food, knowledgeable staff, wonderful presentation, food was exceptional. Our special celebration was acknowledged with a photo, complimentary dessert, a congratulation placed in the menu, & a special presentation of the menu wrapped with a ribbon. Make sure you mention your special event, as they will make it even more special for you. Reservations... More

Always a pleasure to dine at Roy’s and the only chain restaurant I consider a favorite. The servers have always been well versed with the menu and the kitchen has been very accommodating on substitutions if asked. Roy’s really is the best Pacific rim restaurant in the Phoenix area. At times the bar patrons can become a little loud and... More

First, Happy Hour is a great bargain at Roy's. $6 drink specials and apps. Dinner special is the Butter fish that is the best. My ribeye was cooked to perfection. A little pricey but the service and attention to detail makes the experience special. Will return again when in the Phoenix area.

We ate at Roy's on Valentine's Day 2015. To our surprise, they didn't have their regular menu, even though there was no mention of a special menu on the website or on Open Table. The starter that my wife and I both chose was the coconut shrimp. The flavor was delicious. My wife's was cooked perfectly. Mine was dark brown,... More

We went to Roy's for my daughter in laws birthday. We arrived early, 20 minutes. We could not be seated and the bar was full. Even though we were able to get a glass of wine we had to wait out on the entrance way. It had seating for three people. Luckily we were only three at that moment. The... More

This review has been prompted by a standard mailer I recently received from a promotional seminar to be held at Roy's Hawaiian Fusion in Chandler and receive a "Complimentary Free Meal." The mailer and mention of Roy's has reminded me of an experience my wife and I had 6-1/2 years ago, while celebrating our 20th anniversary (note: February 2014 was... More

We had the seafood trio and added one more to make it a quad. Each of the four was unique and delicious. The desserts were both outstanding, you have to give them extra time to make them. It was my birthday and they took a nice picture and gave it to me before we left.
