Best fusion of ethnic foods that can be done while honoring all. The combination and preparation enhance without dominance. Never a bad dish but do not miss the molten chocolate!!

We went to Roy's recently and were very unhappy. We had been given a gift card as a Christmas present from a family member on the mainland. What is strange is that I've used the same gift card before at this location, but they declined it and wouldn't allow me to use it because they told me that they don't... More

Celebrated Christmas Eve family dinners here regularly years ago and recently dined (October 2016, February 2017) again. We had the misoyaki butterfish both times. We prefer the entrée over white rice to balance the salty flavor instead of the blackened rice so be sure to also ask for a bowl of rice to try it. The service is excellent, but... More

I love the downstairs bar at Roy's in Hawaii Kai. The food is as excellent as in the main restaurant upstairs, but it's more relaxed. The view over the water, watching the sun go down is an added touch of magic. The downstairs menu is excellent, offering a very reasonable prix fixe as well as a la carte. Delicious sampler... More

We took a group of 5 people to Roy's in Hawaii Kai to celebrate the sale of our business with the new owner. The food is always very good at Roy's, but the service is a bit lacking. We had to call the waiter numerous times for water and to order additional items. He was not very attentive! The prices... More

My partner and I ate here on his last night visiting Hawaii. We made an online reservation for 7:30pm on a Friday night, easy, no fuss. Arrived, shown to our table, provided with top service and hospitality from each member of staff who passed our table. We were feeling comfy, great start. We both ordered the fixed menu (3 course)...

I live on the mainland but this was the first Roy's that I ever visited, probably 15 or more years ago. I have eaten at Roy's on, Kawai, and in the San Fernando valley in California, and probably some others – but this is still my favorite. The service, the view, and of course – the food. We three chose... More

The staff was excellent, so friendly across the board. We had a late reservation and were the last to leave but they never rushed us out (we would have hurried ourselves if we had known but they were so considerate ). The ribeye and filet were perfectly cooked and generous in the portion. The ambiance was perfect with many people... More

Excellent guest recognition and great service by everyone (hostess, managers, waithelp and bushelp) from opening the door as you enter and as you leave. Have shellfish allergies and waithelp was knowledgeable on this type of allergy. Quality and quantity of food was great as well as their children's menu. Celebrated birthday and acknowledged our birthday guest.
