The food at Roy's is terrific. All in our party of 4 enjoyed the main meal and dessert. The service from Tyler was also first class. The decor and ambience is of a lower standard, however. The restaurant is large, noisy, and clearly aims to turn all the tables over probably 3 times a night, so not suitable for a... More

My wife and I went to this place for lunch and it was really good. The lunch menu was short, and we ordered several dishes to share, which were small and perfect for taking a few tastes of each thing. The service was excellent and the food presentation was also great. Would totally go again!

Roys is a classic. Started with pork belly salad, and hot rolls that are super. Then had butterfish on an avacado base with black rice, and ahi. Ended with hot chocalate cake and pineapple upside down cake. When we asked how food prepared, staff presented a cookbook with all the details.

My husband booked this restaurant for my birthday dinner after great reviews on trip advisor. The 3 course meal was amazing! ! The roy's chocolate pudding was to die for. Our waiter Dean was lovely and brought me out a birthday chocolate cake, inscribed in chocolate were the words "Happy Birthday from Roy's". We were so full that we couldn't... More

we go to Roy's where ever we are if they are there too. we enjoy and prefer the other Roy's that is out of Waikiki a ways. most of the Roy's we visit are quiet and comfortable. not this location! some of the food was not up to Roy's and my standards. however, two of our entrees were delicious.

We visited Roy's when we were in Waikiki in late November. We don't usually go to chain restaurants, but since Roy's originated in Honolulu, we made an exception. I'm so glad we did! We had a fabulous meal...fresh fish, prepared perfectly. Appetizers and dessert were also great. But the best part: our server, Dean. He could not do enough for... More

and good service but the food did not wow. Granted we went around 2 pm in a couple of occasions and maybe the main chef was gone. Bar seemed busy with people enjoying drinks.

This was suggested as "THE" place to go in Waikiki. I booked well ahead to celebrate a big b-day. The location on the beach is nice but the place is very noisy. Service was excellent but I couldn't help but feel that they were rushing us out. The fish was cooked beautifully but the prawns were over cooked. Desert of... More

Good pan Asian creative dishes. Went to this location twice and found the décor and environment disappointing. The place is one big room and décor similar to the Denny's across the street. The place is very loud and sound carries so it makes it a great place for spies to meet their handlers but less intimate for those not breaking... More

We stopped by Roy's and absolutely loved it. Definitely great food and great drinks. We sat on the patio which was awesome as well. Our server suggested perfect meals.... didn't push us into unneeded food or anything. Go!
