There is a creative process of freely blending European techniques and sauces with familiar ingredients of Asia and the Pacific, with the use of the freshest foodstuffs found locally or flown directly from the Hawaiian islands. Even though new menus are written daily to take advantage of the freshest ingredients but you will always find the popular signature tuna dish...Roy Y.'s Original Blackened Ahi in Spicy Hot Soy Mustard Butter Sauce. It is always a winner. Other favorites are: Wood Roasted Lemon Grass Shrimp & Black Rice Risotto in Truffled Lobster Sauce; Steamed Hawaiian Onaga prepared Chinese style with Sizzling Hot Peanut Oil; and Kahana Style Shutome (Hawaiian Swordfish) with Roy's Chutney & Roasted Peanut Red Thai Curry Sauce.
