Description
In Hawaii, there are two things of equal importance—food and the "aloha" spirit. The blending of these two dynamic principles is how Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine was born. European techniques and ... Read more
Asian cuisine meet Hawaiian hospitality to create a fine dining experience unlike any other. Where the "aloha" style of service comes straight from the heart, and where any occasion becomes an unforgettable evening. In 1988, James Beard Award-winner Roy Yamaguchi opened the first Roy's in Honolulu, Hawaii. Today there are 31 Roy's locations around the world—23 in the continental U.S., six in Hawaii, one in Japan and one in Guam. The restaurant was designed around a unique experience through spacious dining rooms, an expansive lounge and Roy’s signature exhibition kitchen in full view.

This is the original Roy's. Roy's has spread all over the globe, and for good reason. Pacific Rim Cuisine, done to perfection. If you like to converse over dinner without shouting, stay downstairs. The main dining room upstairs is very noisy.

I like eating at Roy's, despite the fact that it is a chain. This location was the original, and this is a great date spot, or place to enjoy fine dining. The food and cocktails are amazing.

The original Roy's. The food here is excellent. The service spectacular. Ask for a sunset reservation and a view of the ocean. The many choices that I've tried were all good. The molten lava cake is a must. The best deal was the fixed price meal with appetizer, entree and dessert.

Definitely the best of the Roy's chain. They now do happy hour as well as sushi. Forget the rest of Roy's and visit the original! Reservations recommended. Free parking.

Of all the Roy's on Oahu this is by far the best of them...

I have only praise for Roy's in Hawaii Kai...I wish I could come here a few times a week but I can only afford it a few times a month and I'm ok with that...well maybe not...lol. Wish I could afford it every week...

Food and Chefs are Top Notch here...when I say CHEFS I feel that all the cooks are Chefs who work here. There may be one Executive Chef but as a team they are firing on all cylinders together fo sure!

I know good food, passion and desire when making artful cuisine, I did it for 20 years myself and the Roy's team has PASSION!

What do I like on the Menu? EVERYTHING! I always try something new and the new item I try NEVER disappoints...EVER!

The Wait staff is TOP NOTCH as well and work in perfect harmony with each other...PERFECT SERVICE every time...

Amazing Food, Amazing Chefs, but putting Amazing front Staff together as well? It's never easy to have a perfect oiled machine working perfectly every single day but Roy's pulls it off every time!

I say CONGRADULATIONS to ROY, himself, for putting in a Management team that works with their Kitchen, Wait Staff, Bartenders and Hosting Staff with passion.

Passion brings you closer to Perfection...they are close and for the service and food quality it's worth every bit of your hard earned money you spend here. I have never said that the check was too much...

When you get service like this and relish each mouthful of your dining experience you just don't care about money...I know that's hard to say these days with such burdens we all have with the economy but it's just the truth when I say it.

When I come here I fully enjoy every single moment, every bite, every smell, every drink, every toast, every laugh, every conversation, every kiss...just everything when I come here....no money to me can replace those feelings.

I can not recommend this place enough...dining outside or up on the second floor of Roy's. In my 20 or so times here...PERFECT FOOD, PERFECT SERVICE, PERFECT MEMORIES...every time.
