Chowhound Ruth Lafler updated her 2008 rundown of an office lunch at Roy’s, the Hawaiian fusion restaurant in San Francisco. Back then, she summed it up with a single word: “mediocre.” Has Roy’s improved on the sweet, goopy sauces Ruth hated?

Nope. “It’s a corporate chain catering to the masses,” she says. “Any of the original inspiration has been homogenized out of it.”
