Asian Hawaiian Eats at Roy’s Place, SF

Dropped in for a lunch at Roy’s while visiting SF Moma, which is nearby. It is a nice place, large and airy with a  welcoming bar area. The art was rather predictable, nice but boring flower installations, nothing with a dynamic local feel to it. It would have been great to see some local Tiki art. The prices were high and the portions were small, done in the typical artsy minimalist style.

We decided to split dishes due to the prices, which meant our portions were pretty small. We had the Peppercorn Crusted Hamachi Caesar Salad (Baby Romaine, Croutons, Yuzu Caesar Dressing at 16.50). It was fresh, yummy and the dressing was nicely different. Not too much pepper either. Then we split the larger portion of the Roy’s Classic Roasted Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi (with Lobster Butter Sauce ,at 28.95) This too was delicious, especially the sauce and cooked perfectly. The only problem was the service. While nice enough, it took forever to get our ice teas refilled. Then when they did refill we had to ask for more ice as there was hardly any in them and it was a very hot day. On leaving we had to wait about 10 minutes just to get the bill returned. On the plus side, the bathrooms were very nice, clean and roomy, hard to find in the city…
