THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Roy's Kahana Bar & Grill Restaurant Review: It's hard not to love the food at Roy's. Roy Yamaguchi, a pioneering chef of contemporary Hawaii cuisine, orchestrates bold European, Asian and Polynesian flavors into dishes bursting with layers of different tastes. The flair is echoed by Roy's Maui corporate chef, Joey Macadangdang, and his team of sous chefs. Nightly specials take up most of the menu, possibly including a butter-seared crab meat opakapaka with bok choy, steamed rice and tobiko caviar in a spicy garlic-sesame-butter sauce. The rest of the menu is what you'll find at other Roy's restaurants: first-rate, flavor-laden selections. Roy's original blackened island ahi with spicy soy-mustard-butter sauce is a must, and it's available in entrée and appetizer sizes. First-timers might find it hard to decide what to eat, but the servers make helpful suggestions; ditto for the wine list. Diners are seated close together in this high-ceilinged, energetic room, so it's easy to check out what everyone else is eating. If you hear oohs and aahs, someone probably took a bite out of Roy's dark chocolate soufflé.
