Top-Quality Seafood at Medium-Dollar Prices
Ten bucks for three-piece nigiri sushi sampler?
That’s not a great deal at a chain sushi spot. But for the quality of the fish at Roy’s, it’s a steal.
Roy’s gets some of the best seafood on the islands. They’ve been one of the island’s top restaurants for years, and have their pick of suppliers. They don’t skimp, and serve only the best, freshest cuts.
If you’ve never tried nigiri — that’s a small piece of raw fish over rice — Roy’s is the place to start. The creaminess of their ahi has to be tasted to be believed.
If you’re more of a sushi roll fan, enjoy the same high-quality fish in the Crispy Island Ahi Maki, served with spicy aioli ($9).
Roy’s Takes on Bar Food Classics
Seafood isn’t everyone’s jam. If you prefer bar food classics, try Roy’s island-style renditions.
The must-try is the Mongolian Spiced Baby Back Ribs, served with scallion oil ($9): This is one of Roy’s all-time classic dishes.
Fusing Asian flavors with classics like ribs is common now, but Roy was one of the first to do it and is still one of the best.
Or try Roy’s wings (pictured above). They’re typically seasoned with Japanese-style spices and have that perfect crispness you only get from wings cooked to order.
The Roy’s Ko Olina happy hour is held on their Bridge Bar, which overlooks the 18th hole and practice area of the Ko Olina golf course. It’s such a good view, that’s where the Golf Channel sets up their studio during the LPGA Lotte Championship.
This is one of the best outdoor bars on the west side. Wildlife is a draw, too. The course’s iconic black swans swim in the pond separating the bar from the 18th green.
Ko Olina being a resort area, plenty of your fellow bar patrons will be from out-of-town. Some travel on business, some on pleasure, but if you enjoy conversation you’ll likely learn about a new part of the world. The conversation may flow more smoothly if you’re a golfer — folks often stop in for a refresher after they finish their 18.
Roy’s Ko Olina, at the Ko Olina Golf Club, holds “Aloha Hourz” from 2pm-5pm daily.
