Sushi
Japango, set in a historic building just west of Broadway on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, CO, offers a dynamic combination of traditional and contemporary Japanese cuisine. Guests will enjoy a relaxed experience in an award winning space designed by nationally acclaimed architect, Scott Rodwin. In many ways this wildly popular restaurant feels like a direct extension of Boulder itself—sophisticated, casual and healthy. // It’s is the perfect place for a first date, a family gathering, or a night out with friends. In addition to an elegant—yet intimate and unpretentious—dining room, Japango features a large sushi bar, a Pearl Street patio, a back patio with fireplace, an enclosed patio that seats up to 10, and a lively bar and lounge area. // The full bar offers unique house cocktails, an extensive sake menu and the largest Japanese whisky selection in Colorado.

Loved the atmosphere of Japango! This is a great place to come for a special event or when a friend/family comes to town.

We were very surprised by how great the starters were - very creative. We will certainly be going back.

Love the food, waitress left us hanging too long. Needed water, drinks, extra food and she forgot the extra dressing for our salad.

No doubt in our minds, Japango is the best Sushi in Boulder Valley. Ok, its not cheap but great sushi seldom is. Wonderful flavors, beautifully presented, great service, and cool cocktails. Can't be beat (unless you drive to Uchi's in Denver)

Happy hour here is such a great deal, so delicious. The crispy Brussels sprouts and hamachi jalapeño are my favorites. I ordered a $16 drink called the honeydew u wanna with Japanese Whiskey, but while delicious , you could barely taste the whiskey . I followed it with a happy hour hot saké.

Everything was good, it had been a year since we were able to sit at the bar due to Covid.
It was a lot of fun and glad to have one of our favorite restaurants still here and going strong.

We were sat in a perfect corner two top with a high backed, cozy booth. The restaurant was mostly quiet & lit with the perfect dimness for a relaxing nice night out. We started with the gyoza and the shrimp dynamite, both of which were fantastic. We ordered way too much sushi, but it was all so good that we ate well beyond full. The hamachi was particularly delicious, buttery and rich & absolute perfection. The Utopia sashimi was excellent as well as the 2 rolls we choose. One was the Japango Roll and the other was a spicy roll wrapped in a pepper rather than rice.

The cocktail I had was called the Serrano Splash, made with basil, cucumber, lemon & infused vodka was so good I could’ve drank it out of a gallon jug.

Social distancing expectations were met & everyone was mask compliant. Hand sanitizer was located everywhere and it was the only kind I’ve ever used in a restaurant that didn’t stink and also made my hands feel moisturized. I really should’ve asked what kind they use!

All told, we spent over $200 on dinner, but we happily overate, took a good bit home, had drinks & appetizers... and for quality sushi, that was more than reasonable. I’m already craving Japango again.

Just amazing, cocktails fantastic, food fabulous and servive great.
Green tea creme brulee just first rate. If i had to pick one thing I would say skip the chocolate cake which was dry, edible but as my daughter said it's a sushi restaurant so eat sushi! Would definately go again...soon!

Server went for break or went off shift mid-meal. Unfortunately, we were not notified and never met the new server. Meal ultimately took longer and we had to wait over 29 minutes of dead time until they second server realized the first never put in part of our order. Food is always outstanding but service was very lack luster.

Ordered from the happy hour menu along with some additional rolls. We decided on the gyoza, agedashi tofu, shumai, and crispy Brussels and all were excellent!

Husband and my daughter and I were in town visiting our son at school and took him and one of his roommates here for dinner. Incredible all around. We are sushi lovers and have been to many different sushi places in many places. We ordered many different rolls to share and it would hard to pick a favorite. Flavor and freshness was excellent. We’ll be back!
