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. In many ways this wildly popular restaurant feels like a direct extension of Boulder itself--sophisticated, casual and healthy. Guests enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in an award winning space designed by nationally acclaimed architect Scott Rodwin. It’s a dynamic setting, the perfect place for a first date, a family gathering, or a night out with friends. The dining room is intimate and lively while unpretentiously elegant. Japango features a large central sushi bar, vibrant colors, and a rich material palette of wood, stone and metal, which always provides an upscale dining experience. In addition to offering one of the best happy hours in town, Japango is also home to Boulder's original all-you-can-eat sushi night. The restaurant's full bar hosts unique house cocktails and an extensive sake menu.

Everything was fabulous the only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because I left with my clothes and hair smelling like cooking oil and when you walk in the smell is funky.

The first time I dined here, all the meals were great, freshly made, beautiful presentation and hot. I was excited to bring new people to restaurant to try it out, I raved about how great it was before. Sadly the other day, it was a whole different experience! The Brussel sprout appetizers were cold, whole grilled squid tasted like it was reheated, not freshly made to order. 8 oz filet and teriyaki chicken were cold, presentation felt like food was literally pulled out of fridge, thrown on a plate, heated in microwave and drizzled with teriyaki sauce. Chicken teriyaki had wilted cabbage and other veggies that looked like leftovers, very disappointing since the first dining experience was so awesome. Waiter was friendly and nice, but meals were disappointing, with the exception of the two sushi rolls. If I venture back into this restaurant I will most likely stick with sushi and no appetizer or entree selections. A meal that ended costing over hundred dollars for 3 people, tasted like a $20 meal in the end.

We went to Japango this week for a B-day. We made a reservation for 4 in advance & noted the occasion on the reservation. We were arrived, we were told it would be a bit as the table was not ready. After waiting a bit longer, we were told the previous party is still using the table & offered a spot at the sushi bar.
We were seated in the worse place possible! We could not have conversation as we were seated at a strange angle. I counted 10 times that servers reached over, between, and around us to hand their sushi orders to the chefs. We spent a $180 w/ tip. I had to ask for a b-day desert & we were brought a scoop of ice cream which was shoved in front of the birthday boy. No happy B- day. We were very disappointed as this was a celebration. We made the reservation for a reason.

Hot towels a nice touch to start. Arrived at 5:30 so we were in time for some happy hour bargains. Attentive and helpful server. We enjoyed rounds of gyoza and very delicious hand rolls with excellent varieties of sushi. Also very tasty crispy Brussels sprouts. Very enjoyable evening. We recommend it!

My fiancé and I came for Valentine’s Day dinner ... got a seat at the sushi bar (as promised). Love watching the chefs create such beautiful plates and interacting with them, really fun friendly group! Service was easily five stars, food was better! We will be back again without a doubt. One of our favorite places. Thank you!

Our family of four went to dinner on Valentine's Day. Our table was ready at our reservation time. It took quite a while for our server to take our drink order. The manager dropped off a bowl of yukky brussel sprouts to snack on. Our meals were good. Restaurant is small and tight and very crowded. But it was a holiday. I have been there several times for lunch and it was a more enjoyable experience.

Good food, mediocre service and pleasant environment. Service here is inconsistent. On this occasion, we didn’t receive water, napkins or acknowledgement from our server for more than 10 minutes after being seated. The cocktails arrived after the appetizers. The water glasses were only refilled upon request, and the server was not attentive.
The food was fresh and had nice flavor. The Otoro Nigiri special was excellent, melt in your mouth; but also expensive @ $18 for two pieces.
Go here for the food, but expect relaxed service.

Japango is delicious, but a little overpriced, I guess with the lack of options, they get away with it. Service is usually slow, so don't try and go for a quick lunch.

Unfortunately, part of our order got lost, so we had to inquire about our food, and ended up canceling it altogether after waiting around 30-40 minutes. We come all the time, so this was definitely an anomaly. Regardless, it was handled well once pointed out. The food and service we did get was great, as per usual. I think some wires just got crossed this time! Don't miss the pork belly - I finally tried it for the first time, and it was great!

Our very expensive clothes smell terrible. Coats, scarves, sweaters, everything. We have been there before and enjoyed it. You guys need to do something with your ventilation.
We will now have to get all of the things that I am describing laundered. Hung my coat up when I got home and now our whole closet smells like fried fish. We have all our clothes in the garage now.
