“Great food with gluten free options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Roy's offers a variety of Asian fusion dishes which are uniformly tasty. We always go to Roy's when we're in Honolulu. Since three members of our group required gluten free foods, we requested help from the wait staff for options. The chef was able to do a gluten free misoyaki butterfish which was delicious. Another member of our group had the short ribs, also gluten free, and also very good. One of the reasons we keep returning to Roy's is their sensitivity to customers with food allergies. If you make a server aware of your needs, they will definitely do everything they can to insure that you have a good meal that meets your dietary requirements. I have never had a bad meal at Roy's.

“Excellent food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Food quality is excellent. We had the 3 course fixed price menu and this was excellent value for money. The food was interesting, well prepared and presented. The staff were attentive without being pushy.the ambience was so so considering the large area of the restaurant with plenty of noise.

“Delicious seafood, service not quite there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

The food really was delicious. We loved the crab cakes and all the seafood we ate. The service was not what you'd expect for a restaurant at this price point and with the reputation. Nothing wrong with the service, just not as knowledgeable and welcoming as they should be.

“A great, loud, Bang for your dining buck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Across the street from Orchids, but a world apart. This is loud, noisy, Orchids is quiet and romantic. However, Roy's food is fantastic. Far better that Orchids. Plating was beautiful, taste was really great. 7 friends, everyone loved it. Server knew what he was talking about and made good recommendations.

“Great service and great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Roy's doesn't have a view, but it makes up for everything with the amazing food and service. We did notice that it is completely full at 6pm, so make a reservation. We tried different fish, but our son loved the filet mignon. It is pricey, but worth it for a special dinner. Also, their pineapple cake was amazing. Kids meals include an appetizer and dessert for about $13. Entrees are in the $30 range.
