Japengo - Maui Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant was full of screaming kids. One table in particular with two kids was non-stop for over one hour. Wait staff are not allowed to offend the parents! Wow, pay that kind of money for a meal, and we are the ones who have to suffer!
WE DO NOT RECOMMEND EATING THERE. More of a McDonalds environment. Great place for screaming kids.
Everything was awesome except for one thing - our drinks were really awful. Ordered an exotic lychee rum drink and what they brought out was just pineapple juice. Other than that the food was amazing, service was excellent and the setting pretty spectacular.
We stayed at the Hyatt and ate at Japengo twice. Very convenient. Nice views. Ate in the Sushi Lounge both times. Server, Jun, was very good both times (he even remembered us the 2nd time!). Sushi is very good, nice presentation, but pretty pricey. We had sushi 5 times during our visit and this was by far the most expensive. Would recommend Japengo if you don't want to drive someplace else.
Great location, great meal, great waiter, worth every penny. We booked witb open door. Were served by Hawaiian native Wayne. Complimentary mai tais curteousy of hyatt booking started us off right. We had california roll, chefs special roll:CA cut roll with salmon and red snapper, edamame, spicy tuna roll and we received a free dessert. We love sushi and Japengo did not disapoint. Highly recommend this establishment as the ambiance wasnincredible. Got a fantastic seat BTW. Thanks Japrngo for helping us feel welcome and making our first night in Maui a blast.
Our meal was Fantastic! Service was great, friendly and observant. We had the Kambocha Squash appetizer, squash was cooked perfectly and had a nice smooth buttery texture. Sushi was fabulous, great selection. We ordered 2 desserts, the chocolate ice cream cake and the creme brulee pineapple upside down cake, both were delicious.
The waitress forgot to put in our appetizer so our dinner came out first. Would not have been a big deal except then the manager stopped by every table around us to ask how dinner was but never asked us. We felt like we were written off and no one cared to make things right. A simple I'm sorry would have made a difference. The food was good but nothing special. Will not be going back..,
When i explained I was vacationing and dining alone to the hostess she let me choose the table I wanted The view was beautiful the service was excellent. My server visited with me in between courses which made the time sitting by myself pass easily. Their menu offers 1/2 orders of several plates so that a diner can try more than one entree. My food was well plated and delicious. The dessert was made in house and was also delicious.
Third time. First two were excellent. This time not so much. Hostess had slight attitude. Not too bad but, noticeable. Not friendly. Server very pleasant and attentive until main course. We waited far too long until we were fed up (pun intended) and cancelled . Suddenly, main was ready. Left upset and unsatisfied.
My wife and I returned after a wonderful experience the previous year. This visit was the complete opposite. First, we were given a table at the further possible location in the restaurant. There was rain, and our waitress didn't even offer to move us. The runner is who offered to move us. After we moved tables, the runner continued to serve us and bring us new water. The waitress was nowhere to be seen. We do appreciate the waitresses offer to comp our appetizer but doesn't make up for a terrible visit. Last year's visit was celebrating our marriage. This year's visit was to celebrate our 1st anniversary, which was a terrible experience. We do not plan to go back to this restaurant. Food tasted good but the terrible service we received will never be forgotten.
Japengo has a great ocean view which is especially appealing at sunset. However, the restaurant doesn’t shine nearly as brightly as the setting sun.
The food quality and presentation is geared to the tourists at the adjacent Hyatt Hotel rather than people seeking a memorable dining experience. The quality of the sashimi is sub par. Even a sushi dish as simple as a California roll is demeaned by their using imitation crab.
If you seek a memorable Japanese dining experience, there are other restaurants in Lahaina that are far superior.
There really isn't a better table to sit at on Kaanapali than outside overlooking the ocean and Lanai with sun setting. The food is perfect, sushi is some of the best around, I had the lamb chops and lobster tails and were cooked perfect. There is a donut dessert with 3 sauces that will blow your mind. Go back again and again!!!
