    There's a Roys (Hawaiian Fusion) and a Flemings next to eachother at Topanga and Victory. Roy's is very expensive. and sometimes not that great for the $$$. Go to Flemings. More for your buck and (consistantly) better food (Been to the one's in Palm Desert). Love Flemings-
    Make sure you call ahead and make reservations!!!!
    If you do go to Roy's, please share your experience and opinions. Have fun :) KQ

      We didn't care for Flemings. The sides weren't great, and we prefer the steaks at Ruth's Chris.

      We do eat at Roy's every once in a while. We were just there about a month ago. I love their kobe beef/crab sushi appetizer, and their sea scallops are always cooked perfectly.

      We enjoyed Roy's very much a few weeks ago. The tuna sashimi melted in our mouths, ahi poke, scallops, braised short ribs and butterfish were some of the favorites. See a few recent posts.

        I tried Roy's recently and thought it was OK, however my fish entree with macadamia nut was disappointingly overcooked. I did love their kobe beef sushi roll-type appetizer though, great contrast of steak flavors with the sushi roll.

          I second the kobe beef sushi roll =) It was delicious.

          Roy's in Topanga was excellent. We'd first encountered Roy's in Hawaii and the one in Topanga did not disappoint. Excellent service, excellent food. Sorry can only tell you about the vegetarian items: creatively put together, well presented and tasty. Worth it! Hope you enjoy.

            To clarify, the title of this post should say Roys on Topanga instead of in Topanga. Topanga and Victory in Woodland Hills is the true location. Right?
