I had a $50 gift card and Roy’s sent a $25 dining card in the mail, so I got two of my friends to go to Roy’s for a girls’ night out! This was my first time here. We were seated promptly and were given great service from the restaurant staff. The restaurant has booth seating even in the middle of the dining area, dim lighting, and a fancy atmosphere. For the 3 of us, we ordered one Pasadena restaurant week meal: shrimp and green papaya salad, Thai style lemongrass chicken, and pineapple upside-down cake, Roy’s Trio, and Roy’s Canoe Appetizer for Two.
The shrimp and green papaya salad comes with crispy garlic, herbs, and chili nam pla. The lemongrass chicken is served with creamy Jasmine rice, bok choy, and red curry. We substituted the chocolate souffle and bread pudding desserts in the restaurant week menu for the pineapple upside-down cake. The 3-course meal is $35. There are two other salads and entrees that you can choose from.
Roy’s Trio consists of Hibachi Salmon, Misoyaki Butterfish, and Macadamia Nut-Crusted Mahi for $32.95.
Roy’s Canoe Appetizer for Two for $26.95- This appetizer combo comes with two pieces each of Grilled Szechuan pork ribs, blackened island ahi, lobster potstickers, crispy spicy tuna roll, and shrimp sticks. You can increase the servings on the appetizer to feed however many are in your party, but it’s an additional $13 per person.
The food at Roy’s really is delicious, but the portions are small for the price. Everything is presented so beautifully. The restrooms are also nice with a couch for those waiting in line for a stall, and the paper towels are thick and customized with Roy’s logo.
