We ordered several types of sushi, sashimi and negril then had hot pineapple upside down cake for dessert. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Pricey but worth it.

Definitely different from the first time. Photocopied paper menus set the scene as our party of 4 were seated at a large table in the noisy restaurant. Waiters / food servers had to ask who ordered what.

Friendly efficient service and such great food. Ordered the Kaukau 3 course menu for $35. Exceptional value for the price. Was able to give a supersizes tip to help hourly workers in this challenging time. I encourage other Kamaaina to take advantage of these special prices but then give a bigger tip!

We were in Hawaii for my 50th birthday and a friend had bought me $100 gift card in California where we’re from. We were disappointed to learn when we sat down that they were no longer accepting out of state gift cards.

Close friends encouraged us to eat at Roy’s during our Waikiki vacation. What a great tip! Everything was top-notch in a relaxed environment. My mahi-mahi was done to perfection and delicious. My husband had the beachwalk trio, which far exceeded his expectation. And the service was impeccable!

Food quality was bad. Food was bland, no quality, could not eat snapper over cooked, no juice, rice poor. Food took a while to be served. They brought spring rolls to keep us going.

We went for our tenth anniversary dinner. The food, drinks, and service were amazing! My only complaint is the outdoor seating was next to the bar. There were a few obnoxious people there. Not the fault of Roy’s, but it was a bit noisy out there. Highlights included the vegan tacos (my wife is still talking about them), the appetizer sampler, and of course, the molten lava cake! Highly recommended for all, just eat inside for conversation.

Was hoping for a much better experience. This is pretty much a tourist trap catering more to getting the rubes in and out than to providing a high quality dining experience worthy of the prices they charge. Nothing was "bad" about our meal (except for being VERY loud), but nothing was "good", either. The food was so-so, the service lacking, and the general ambience uninspiring. Dropping $400 for two people should result in a memorable dinner, not an experience on par with The Olive Garden.

We always enjoy going to Roy's for our anniversary, but our last visit on Feb 28 was a little disappointing. The fish was awesome as usual, but we found the appetizers were not prepared with the care we have come to expect. The ribs on the appetizer sampler were cold and had congealed fat on the underside. The beef short ribs also seemed to suffer the same fate, although tender and tasty, they were not served warm enough. The Mahi Mahi and chocolate souffle were perfect and we left feeling the evening had been OK. We got the feeling they were taking some short cuts to rush you out so they could turn the table over faster. It was a mixed experience for us this year but based on the past we hope it was just an off night.
