“The best and freshest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I visited the island of Oahu for a little over two months. We had lots of time to explore and try new things and one of our favorite things was Romys. I don't even like shrimp and I was asking to go back! Their garlic shrimp and rice was out of this world delicious! They are one of the only places on the island that has shrimp fresh out of the ponds most places in port from Thailand. This place is a must try for your trip to Oahu.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

My kids were really excited to try the shrimp here after hearing some great reviews, but our experience was not so great. The shrimp were of a smaller size and a bit bland. Not the best.

“Delicious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

The whole idea of shrimp in butter and garlic is classic, but romys takes it to a whole different level. Large portions, with extra garlic and butter, and spicy shrimp sauce. Everything was so good, and though its a little way off (maybe a 30 minute drive), it was all so very much worth it.

“day trip around the North Shore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We stopped at Romys after seeing a good review on it and we passed it up but came back. The offer shrimp and Prawns cooked different ways. We had the butter and garlic shrimp and the spicy sprimp and both were very good. They are served with white rice but you can opt for brown rice if you want. You have to peel the shrimp which can get quite messy but they have a sink and soap to wash up afterwards. All eating is outside at picnic tables that are covered. It was a nice stop.

“My favorite shrimp truck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Huge portions. Delicious food. Very crowded but worth the wait. One negative was that it was very muddy (unavoidable I think). I liked it a little better than Giovanni's, but both wonderful.
