Outstanding as usual. The service was great and their food offerings are incredible. I recommend the Manila Clams, fried rice, Lahaina Roll and Otorro. Love this place.
We were told this was the best Sushi on the island, it was fair at best. Great sushi should be a culinary experience that makes you not think of the bait you put on your hook. I guess we received that one in a thousand experience. Sorry my opinion....
The food was amazing, but the ambience was superb. Tables are all outdoors with beautiful sunset views. Sushi was really good. And try the Japengo fried rice - it will feed 4! Highly recommend for a night out in Kaanapali.
One of the greatest treats when in Maui is to go to Japengo for sushi and drinks. Beautiful view, great food and service. We will be back.
The only reason to come to this restaurant is for the sushi. The other food was over priced and underwhelming.
I applaud the fact that they had gluten free sushi options as well as tamari. The sushi was very fresh and good. It was however very expensive.
The main meal was awful. We ordered the ribeye steak, it was mostly fat and it was poorly seasoned. The sauce was bland. The mashed potatoes were good.
I will not return to the main restaurant.
Flavors so fresh, refreshing and just simple yet so delish. Went with a group of sushi connoisseurs and we all were raving about the experience.
Beautiful spot and great food/service. Pricey but worth it for a special occasion.
Terrific time sitting outside enjoying appetizers and sashimi. Excellent service as always.
While this restaurant has received many recommendations it didn’t quite meet our expectations.
I would still recommend Japengo just not to the level that it makes itself out to be.
Excellent food, service was exemplary, drinks were light and tasty.
We have gone to Japengo every year we come to Maui and have always loved it. However, we will never be going back. The food was average, especially for the high prices but more so, the wait service was truly terrible. As in, probably the worst service we have ever had.
Great view at The Hyatt on Ka'anipali Beach. However the restaurant interior was quite stark and almost cafeteria like. Our server Kathleen was very good and the food was pretty good. Nothing was "fantastic", but then again nothing was bad. The best thing is the menus offers a good variety of food choices. Basically something for everyone.
For the Canadian dollar exchange, the prices are high.
Server Eddie was not attentive at all. Never asked how our food was,people arriving after us got their meals ahead of us and our dish, chow fun isn't along dish to prepare. Had to flag him down for a drink. For a place that expensive waiters should be spot on. Food was great, nice atmosphere.
We love eating at Japengo. It is one of our favourites. On this visit the food was fair. The ribs awful all bone little meet. The fried rice dry. Maybe a one off.
Going again tonight March 4. Hopefully better.
Sushi and sashimi was fantastic. Dining is open to the elements and wind blew & broke wine glasses, people got wet from spray. Waiter & hostess forgot to validate out parking, waiter forgot some of our dishes and had to return to get them, but the food was outstanding so can overlook these things. The new chef is great!
We really enjoyed our dinner and our waitress Sheri was fantastic! We shared a steak and rice and everything was delicious! We were pleasantly surprised by the free dessert of malasadas with salted caramel dipping sauce.
The food is amazing but the malasadas for dessert are my favourite
Customer service is not dead and those at Japengo are proving that to each person that dines in their restaurant. The sushi chefs and head sushi chef were amazing. We look forward to our time at Japengo each time we come to Maui. Mahalo.
Highly recommend Japengo”s menu and service. Delicious and excellent. Consistently fine dining!
Great food and service!
Japengo was fabulous! All tables have an ocean view. The service was excellent. We had the sashimi, sushi roll, Mahi Mahi and the chow fun. All were excellent. Very nice ambience for a romantic dinner.
Curry dusted calamari and the seared Ahi main dish were both pure ecstasy!
Food and service was excellent. Menu had half portions so we were able to try multiple dishes. Ok
Unbelievable ambiance! Every dish prepared to perfection.
Definitely did not live up to its reviews. Sushi was not good.
Waiter did not engage with us at all - very mechanical. Did not remember who ordered what. Felt like he just wanted to turn table over. Note: He was not rude in any way. No moist toilettes or warm cloth provided for member of our party that ordered ribs as appetizer. Had to go to bath room to wash hands.Given the price and quality of food - expect better service.
Generous portions. Delicious rolls. Went for dinner twice in 6 days.
Cannot say enough good about the quality of everything! Food, service and ambiance all a perfect ten. After six months of living on island this is Our favorite restaurant on Maui.
We go there every year. Table 503 is the best
The new lead sushi chef, Masa, is fantastic. He has big shoes to fill, as Jin is also awesome. I guess the bottom line is that Japengo has done it again and hired another world-class sushi chef.
The food was ‘ok.’ When I pay a pretty penny for food, I expect flavor. Was disappointing-
Oh my God! This is a fabulous dining experience. The food quality was superb. Memorable!!! We sat outside on a cliff and dined through the sunset. Whales were breaching within view. Service is top- notch. Don’t miss this! Again, food was a 10+.
Great place for sushi on Maui. Wait staff was wonderful and the food was excellent. Large portions. Would definitely dine here again.
Meeting up with old friends
Amazing, wonderful service and food.
Delicious ocean side Japanese fusion meal, with great ambience and service.
