ROY’S HAWAIIAN FUSION RESTAURANT… “Hawaiian Fusion at Aloha Hour!”

ROY’S ALOHA HOUR MENU

What’s your idea of the perfect Savor Hour? An upscale, yet relaxed atmosphere where the staff remembers your name after just one visit? How about a cozy upscale and intimate environment where distinctive cocktails and lucious appetizers are just $5 each? Want to top that off with a little Hawaiian fusion and throw in a lot of value for the entire experience? Well, we have just the place for you…Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion Restaurant in Woodland Hills. After two additional trips to this surprising and all-around incredible establishment just to make sure we both agreed, Roy’s has made it onto the Savor Hour List with ease!

 

HAVE A SEAT AT ROY’S BAR

Walking past the wrought iron flame torches that guard the Hawaiian foliage in front of the restaurant, and entering the front door to Roy’s, you are instantly welcomed by smiling hostesses and a domain that beckons you to enter its warm-hued multi-roomed expanse. A cleverly-designed dividing wall separates the bar and lounge from the main dining area that creates an effortless flow. There are various seating options at high-top bar tables near a wall of windows, booth-like seating against the lounge wall, center-of-the-room high-top tables for two, and, of course, several seats at the bar where you can watch Roy’s mixologist dazzle you with his performance of drink-mixing capabilities. Ah, the sound of a martini being shaken…

INSIDER’S TIP: Try to snag one of the booth tables. They’re more comfortable, are larger than the other high-top tables for two and you can see everything going on in the lounge area from them!

ROY’S ORIGINAL HAWAIIAN MARTINI

Speaking of incredible libations, Roy’s mixes up some pretty interesting concoctions during their “Aloha Hour” in the lounge. Every night from 4:30 – 6:30PM, for only $5, you can enjoy any of their appetizers or cocktails. JUST FIVE DOLLARS EACH! Really! Starting with their tantalizing drink menu, Roy’s Original Hawaiian Martini was my first choice. Maui pineapples are immersed in SKYY Vodka, Stoli Vanil Vodka and Malibu Coconut Rum, then shaken and garnished with a fresh pineapple wedge on the rim of your martini glass. This one will show off its potency, because it’s not a light contender in the cocktail line-up at this restaurant. Nor are the other options such as the Roy’s Island Mai Tai, which is not only colorful, but refreshing and fruity. This Castillo White Rum and Cruzan Black Strap Rum mixture is sure to give you island fever!

ROY’S ISLAND MAI TAI

The Island Mai Tai was my husband’s first cocktail selection. We sipped from one another’s to taste the difference, and we found that both had their very own unique flavors and individual traits. Both scored high in our book on flavor, visual charm and were both packed with a punch. In fact, all the cocktails we tried at Roy’s are heavy on the liquor, so be prepared to be pampered for just $5 each!

 

THE 1988 MARTINI

The 1988 Martini was named for the opening year of the original Roy’s in Honolulu, Hawaii. This pink liquid experience is made with ABSOLUT Ruby Red Vodka, SOHO Lychee Liqueur, and Patron Cirtonge Liqueur, then topped off with a speared lychee nut. Such an intricately-designed martini for such a fantastic price! With the $5 price tag on this pale pink flavorsome libation, you won’t miss with this selection. Powerful, strong and able to stand on its own against the other unique and individualistic brews the bar at Roy’s concocts, this lightly fruity beverage is sure to score high marks on your “favorite martini of the evening” roster. Try one, and you’ll know why the restaurant uses it as their preferred start-up-date cocktail!

VERY BERRY LEMON DROP MARTINI

Another favorite I had was their Very Berry Lemondrop Martini. A classic Lemondrop Martini made “berry” special with muddled berries, a sugar rim then garnished with fresh speared raspberries and blackberries. Incredible! And fun to sip also.In addition, there are three “Skinny” cocktails on the menu that come in under 150 calories each. The Skinny Cosmo is made with SKYY Infusions Blood Orange Vodka, VeeV Acai Spirit, cranberry juice and fresh lime. The Pina “Fresca” is blended with Malibu Coconut Rum and ABSOLUT Mango Vodka with Orange, Pineapple and Coconut. The Ginger Pear Martini is mixed with Square One Organic Vodka and Kumosabe’ Double Barrel Nigori with Ginger Agave and Fresh Pear. All under 150 calories!

MANGO MOJITO AND MAI TAI

Three “island-inspired” Mojitos are included on Roy’s Aloha Hour list including the Mango Mojito prepared with mango puree, Bacardi Limon Rum and freshly-muddled mint. Another is the Pineapple Ginger Mojito, which brings flavors of fresh ginger and pineapple together with 10 Cane Rum and fresh mint. Finally, the Pomegranate Patron Mojito created with pomegranate puree, Patron silver Tequila and mint wraps up this great selection. We both love a great Mojito, and Roy’s really delivers with theirs.

There are several margaritas, wines, beer selections and other incredible libations as well as the above-mentioned choices, but this blog would be extremely long if I continue covering all of the great drinks at Roy’s. Try any or all of our selections, and we promise that you’ll be wanting to do the Limbo in no time!

Roy’s appetizer menu offers quality and variety for $5 each, as well. You can choose the Smoked Mahi Mahi Tacos with crispy Taro and a jalapeno puree garnighed with freshly-sliced jalapeno peppers. This one is a fresh burst of flavors and a scrumptious choice, but it also has a spicy kick, so have some ice water or a cold beverage handy after your first bite!

SMOKED MAHI MAHI TACOS

The Wagyu Beef Sliders were a hit with my husband. Served with caramalized onions, Chipotle Aioli and Garlic Sweet Potato Fries, this appetizer supplies two of the sliders that surround a pile of sweet potato fries ready to be devoured. Nicely-prepared beef, sweetness from the caramelized onions and soft mini buns complete the presentation of this savory snack.

The Big Island Ebi Roll consists of shrimp tempura, coconut, cream cheese, avocado, Habanero Aioli and Nitsume. This is one of my personal favorites! Creamy, colorful and delectable attributes. The perfect roll for the perfect Aloha Hour!

BIG ISLAND EBI ROLL

The Beef Short Rib Tacos were crunchy on the outside and juicy and tender inside. The Korean essence of this dish blended with the Kim Chee vegetables come together nicely when topped with the Ko Chu Jang sauce.

BEEF SHORT RIB TACOS

The Crunchy Golden Lobster Potstickers are a crispy delight that arrive resting in a puddle of Roy’s incredible miso butter sauce. An accompanyment of spicy Togarashi is applied to the dish before delivered to your table. If you’re a butter sauce fanatic, you have to try this one! It was so delicious, we got a little crazy and just started dipping everything in it.

CRUNCHY GOLDEN LOBSTER POTSTICKERS

Our experience at Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion Restaurant was exceptional. Jessica was our server and was attentive, professional, kind and genuinely pleasant. We asked for her suggestions and her recommendations were superb. We look forward to our next jaunt to Woodland Hills so we can stop in for Aloha Hour. We were quite impressed and very satisfied with the overall revelations we discovered, have been back twice since our first visit, and will certainly share our delight with others!

DECOR / ESTABLISHMENT: The decor at Roy’s is predominantly Hawaiian. Huge wrought-iron tiki torches stand crossed in front of the restaurant as they welcome patrons in just beyond their guard. Beautiful palms and colorful flowers also greet you as you approach the main entry. Inside, a modern upscale motif addresses you as smiling hostesses wait to assist you.

FOOD / DRINK: Outstanding Hawaiian Fusion dishes, revitalizing cocktails that are not light on the alcohol, and all-around incredible atmosphere in the lounge.

LOCATION: Roy’s is located at 6363 Topanga Canyon Boulevard, Woodland Hills, CA 91367 right next door to Fleming’s.

SERVICE / STAFF: Everyone working at Roy’s was noteworthy. Skilled servers, talented bartenders and observant hostesses aide in the seamless quality of this establishment. Our server in the lounge was Jessica. We respected her attentiveness and friendly demeanor, and look forward to seeing her on our next trip to the eatery.

PRICE / VALUE: For just $5 each for every drink and every appetizer, Aloha Hour at Roy’s lands on the Savor Hour list as one of the best cost-conscious connoisseur places to dine for $50 or under (including tax)!

CORKAGE FEE: $15 per bottle. Not awful, considering the array of unique and inventive cocktails being served and the extensive wine list in the restaurant (see menu via the link below)!

CONTACT INFO: Phone: (818) 888-4801, Website: http://www.roysrestaurant.com

PARKING: Get there early! Trust us on this one. We arrived once at 5:30PM on a weekday, and couldn’t get a seat in the lounge for more than a half hour! They’re packed … literally…from around 4:45 PM until after Aloha Hour ends! Unfortunately, we left that evening disappointed, but not unaware that Roy’s has one of the best Happy Hours in the area. Now we make sure we get there no later than 4:15PM to ensure grabbing a comfy spot before the crowds come in. Additionally, we would recommend arriving early to beat the “orange cone placement” by the valet company outside the front of the restaurant. If you can make it into the front parking lot before the valet puts the orange cones out, you won’t have to park behind the restaurant in the parking lot. If you do, that’s alright too because Roy’s employees will validate your parking ticket before you leave. If you would like to have the valet take your car, the charge is $5.

TOTAL BILL: $48.94 for one Mai Tai, one Hawaiian Martini, one 1988 Martini, two Mango Mojitos, one order of the Wagyu Beef Sliders, an order of the Short Rib Tacos, a Big Island Ebi Roll, and the Mahi Mahi Tacos.

Most times, you will get feedback from what you post. After a while, you’ll build up a collection of posts that you can be proud of. Congratulations on your new venture, and best of luck!
