We spent 9 days in Honolulu, and this was our favorite dinner. The gf-df butterfish was delicious, and we also had seared ahi w gf tamari. Delicious! Our server was very helpful and seemed experienced with gluten free requests. There’s ample outdoor seating, but you probably need to make reservations well in advance to sit outside.

They had a separate gluten free menu on their website but told us they did not have one when we got to the restaurant. Not very knowledgeable about gluten free items on their menu and it seemed difficult for them to modify items for us. That said, the food we got was good. Side note the restaurant is very loud and service was very slow.

Expensive-overpriced. There were a couple of GF items on the menu and the staff helped me sort through which ones. The sushi vinegar they use is GF, which is rare. They gave me tamari. If you are looking for a couple of safe items in a very upscale dining environment, this may suit your needs.

Went to Roy’s for sushi after reading a couple of reviews here - their menu doesn’t have much to offer that isn’t prepared with regular soy sauce. I almost left because I was disappointed but the wait staff went out of their way to make me sushi without any sauces incorporated. They also cleaned their work stations before preparing my food and it ended up being one of the best meals I had in Hawaii.

As a gluten free person I’m used to (and expect to) be treated as an annoyance at most restaurants, but this was *not* the case here. When asking if they’d be able to accommodate, the hostess ensured me the chefs would see it as a fun challenge and not a burden. Every staff member was informed of my allergy and was very aware of it, but also very into the idea of finding me modifications or ways of getting me a great meal.

It wasn’t a cheap restaurant, but was delicious and definitely worth it. Will definitely go again if I’m ever back in Waikiki.

great waiter who went out of his way to try to help us be gluten free safely. just wish the menu had more gluten-free options that didn't end up having to be stripped down to be gluten safe. we've been spoiled living in Boulder where most restaurants have several great Gourmet options already gluten free.

Went here for my birthday dinner. We were impressed from start to finish. The staff was outstanding and very knowledgeable about their gluten free options. I had the butter fish and the sweet potato soup. Both were delicious. They brought me ice cream and a fabulous flourless chocolate cake which my kids pre ordered to surprise me. I can't wait to come here again.

Enjoy Roy's a couple of times a year. The chef is always happy to make something special for you once they know of your allergy. They prepare food in a separate kitchen space to reduce CC risk. Consistent high quality and impeccable service cannot be beat.

Huge disappointment. 1st time I ate at Roys in Kauai it was amazing. The meal was a showpiece. Service was off the charts. We have eaten in CA many times. Dining in Waikiki was like I was in another place. Service was shaky at best. We had our reservations since the night before or I would have walked out. I told the server I was gluten free highly allergic to gluten. Her attitude was almost then why are you eating here? My family was looking forward to eating there otherwise I would have closed my menu and left. It wasn't until I pushed to see what the chef could do that she started helping. They did serve me a GF meal, I hope. The meal was ok. My family said the same about there's. I don't live here so they won't go under I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. If I was running this site I pull them off.

Although a nice restaurant with friendly staff I received different info from every person about what I could get gluten free. This location doesn't have a GF menu and when I asked the waitress what I could have without having to modifying it she directed me to the short ribs as the only ok option as is. Later the mgr came over and assured me they could do something I would like that would be perfectly safe and needless to say I was ill within a hour of my meal. When I called just to let them know about the Issue I had they tried to tell me how careful they were and they did not get gluten in my food. I told them I only get that ill from gluten they still continued on about how they know about cross contamination etc etc what do u want from me, and I said I only wanted to let you know so you would be more careful for someone else. I got off the unhappy feeling like they didn't feel like they did anything wrong, they never even said they were sorry.

Wonderful food. Waiter knew everything about gluten. Chef can modify any dish without problems. You just tell server which item you want in the regular menu. Definitely best food in Waikiki!!! Sit outside if you want quieter dinner. Flourless dessert!

I honestly unsure where the other great reviews are coming from. It’s like we are at a completely different restaurant? We sat down and asked about our gluten free options and there are close to none. No buns, no fries, a couple of fish dishes very modified. I would not recommend.

They did not have a gluten free menu but our server was very knowledgeable & our daughter had plenty of options. They brought out complimentary edamame when we sat down & she was so excited to be able to share that with us. She was easily able to find something on the children’s menu. In fact, the children get an appetizer with strawberries, oranges & carrots so that was another fun surprise. Finally, they had multiple dessert options for her as well. She got the strawberry sorbet with her kids meal but we also had the flour less chocolate cake so she could have a bite.

Staff is great. Super thorough and they go back and talk to the kitchen to confirm everything. We felt very safe here.

We have eaten here twice and it is amazing food. Never an issue and everything always tastes amazing.

Hands down, best place to eat in the area. We stayed at Aulani and took the shuttle over and walked back, very close. The food, atmosphere and servers were amazing. The hostess took our reservation by phone and I felt assured she knew they could handle the GF celiac guest just fine. Our server knew the menu like the back of his hand and went item by item with us. They can make almost anything GF and handle allergies really seriously. The manager came out to check on us and follow up. We had the Beef short ribs with veggies/sauce and Japanese specialty fish on a bed of Mash potatoes with crab meat. For dessert we had the flourless chocolate cake. Everything was HANDS DOWN the best we tried our entire trip to Oahu. It was amazing. We loved the food. It was a little pricey but nothing compared to the prices at Aulani resort. We loved the food so much and will totally go there again and again when we visit. Thank you ROY's!

Went on my anniversary and when I told the waiter I needed the chef to know I had a gluten “allergy” I was told there was a chocolate souflee - um, yes please. It was so good. For dinner I just had a wedge salad and Butterfish but the star of the show was definitely dessert.
