European techniques, Pacific Rim cuisine, warm, from-the-heart hospitality. Together, they create the remarkable dining experience unique to Roy’s Restaurant.

The first Roy’s was opened in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1988 by namesake founder Roy Yamaguchi, a James Beard Award winner. Since those early days, we’ve proudly spread our passion around the world — there are five Roy’s restaurants in the continental United States, six in Hawaii, one in Japan and one in Guam.
