Roy's was by far the best place I had dinner in Waikiki. I say that though I prefer not to eat at chain or celebrity restaurants. My dinner at Roy's was the only good dinner I had in a sea of otherwise average and overpriced restaurants in Waikiki.

I LOVE Roy's - all of them. We routinely go to the one in Bonita Springs, FL. We went to the one in Chicago a few months ago and now the one is Waikiki - all so great. It is weird to get meatloaf or short ribs at a asian/Hawaiian fusion restaurant but those are my favorites. Always an incredible... More

We have been to Roy's in Waikoloa on the Big Island and wanted to try it in Waikiki. I worry that Waikiki has so many people that the desire to be first class would diminish but not to be so. Roy's was as fabulous as I expected. We had 6 people and ordered family style, meaning we had a lot... More

We were lucky to be seated immediately without a reservation, but our table was tuck in the corner we assumed reserved for walk-ins. Our server Terry was very helpful and attentive. I had the blackened Ahi and my husband ordered the meatloaf with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The food was delicious but came in small portions that left us hungry... More

We found the restaurant to be so tightly packed the waiters had trouble reaching us and so loud we had trouble talking to each other. The food was excellent. The newer Roy's in Ko Olina is much nicer

Roy's was spectacular, my husband and I ( on our honeymoon) decided to go with all appetizers there. The Waikiki Deluxe Roll and Baby back Ribs were fantastic. Our server spoiled us and brought us 3 bowls of the complimentary edamame that was seasoned with a spicy rub and sesame. For desert we went with the chocolate soufflés which was... More

Although the meals are pricey, the food was very good and tasty. I had the crusted Mahi Mahi and my wife had the Praws. Both very delicious and appealing. We were celebrating our honeymoon / V-day all at once and they gave us a complimentary cake. Our Waiter, Johnerthon, was exceptional! He was very knowledgeable with the menu and gave... More

If you stay near the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Centre or Waikiki Beach Walk this is a great option for a special meal. There are inside tables, dining on the lanai or at the sushi counter. You choose from several tasting menus with or without wine selections plus à la carte. My sushi platter was fresh and well prepared. My companion... More

I ate there once. It is in a great location but extremely expensive and portions are so small! Nice place outdoors at the bar to meet a friend for a drink.

We went to Roy's on the last night of our stay in Waikiki because we wanted to have a special dinner before we left the next morning. And, special it was! EVERYTHING was top notch. We were celebrating my Husband's Birthday and somehow Roy's discovered my Birthday was the next month and served a special dessert for me too. What... More
