With a menu of signature favorites, sushi, and Chef Jason Peel’s own creations, Roy’s Waikiki pulls 400 to 500 covers a night, feeding (and satisfying) a hungry Honolulu crowd. By Peel’s own admission, the restaurant (unlike some of its 33 Asian fusion cousins) doesn’t aim for fine dining chic. Instead, the chef and his team take on comfort favorites, while dabbling in fused flavors of the Mediterranean, China, and Japan. But even with a larger format, Roy’s doesn’t just crank out dishes. The restaurant makes serious attempts to be as healthful and sustainable as possible, with well thought-out vegan options and menus that occasionally highlight a single farm’s produce.
