If you go to the North Shore of Oahu, you have to try a shrimp stand! We got the garlic shrimp, fried shrimp, and steamed shrimp and took it back to the house to eat. Very tasty, as were the sauces. Shrimp are farmed in an area between their location and the shore, so they are very fresh. A few... More

We waited 1hr to the window and then another hour for the order to be ready. Granted we were there on a Sunday afternoon. We've always been a fan of Giovanni's shrimps just 10m down the road but decided to give Romy's a try as it seemed more popular. After this, we going back to Giovanni's for all our shrimp... More

Stopped by during a drive along Oahu's east and north shores. There are lots of shrimp places to choose from in the northeast and Romy's is a great pick. The food was delicious and there was not a long wait but we arrived on a non peak time and day. The food was fresh and tasteful but the facilities could... More

On our trip to Oahu last month, we went to Romy's for lunch. We were on a private tour of the island and our tour guide suggested that if we liked shrimp and fish and wanted to experience the best local place to have lunch we needed to go to Romy's......he certainly did not lead us astray! He phoned in... More

My nephew brought us to this eatery along Kamehameha Highway in North Shore. There are several eating places of this kind in the area but Romy's is his favorite. We ordered the Butter and Garlic Sautéed Shrimps and it was really good, no need for additional sauce. The two scoops of rice was divine because of the butter-garlic drippings from... More

Garlic prawns were delicious but you have to wait 40 minutes for them. Was a bit surprised that they are farmed when the restaurant is 400 m from the ocean!

Another great Oahu Revealed recommendation. This was our favorite shrimp truck. On our first visit we had about a 25 minute wait once we ordered but the second visit was quicker. Both times the garlic butter shrimp was soooo good! The shrimp were fresh, large and so tender. The garlic sauce on the rice was very good. Even the rain... More

only one cook, took an hour for meal, which was 4 shimp on rice with garlic butter sauce! Very messy to eat, had to pull off shimp heads and legs and eat. The taste not mind blowing for all the wait and work to eat.

Food was soooo good. While waiting we ate the LiHing pineapple which was refreshing. Its a must experience to eat shrimp while going around the island. We always eat here, the food and ambience doesn"t disappoint.
