Japengo - Maui
Great food. Exceptional service. Cozy atmosphere, perfect for a date night.
The views here are amazing. Although at a point everyone got up and starting taking pics of the sunset and all we saw were people standing up in our views..that's a bit annoying. Otherwise the service was on point...but food is hit or miss. The coconut curry was real tasty, the stirfry was tasty but didnt blow my mind and same with the sushi. It tasted extremely fresh but it was missing some components like texture crunch and I just couldnt put my finger on it. Also the soy sauce has wine in it..so that also is a distinct taste. Overall it was fun but I wasnt blown away!
All was very good. Just expect to pay resort prices for B+ food. Servers were very friendly.
My daughter enjoyed the California Roll and my son loved the shrimp tempura roll. Appetizer ribs were good but the sauce was very sweet for my taste. Chicken satay was just ok. Also very sweet. Beautiful location and service was good. Very pricy. $17 for appetizers
Our service was amazing and we sat right by the ocean which was a huge plus as well!
Excellent service, delicious food, and beautiful view. Will definitely be back.
Amazing sunset, staff and food. Not something to skip if you’re staying at the Hyatt
We’ve been eating at Japengo for many years but this last time was disappointing. All the food was VERY salty and VERY greasy. We will be taking this one off the list of places to visit in future. My mom had Hyatt points to redeem and it took 45 minutes for the manager to put them through. Ridiculous.
This was our 3rd evening dining at Japengo and while the food was as excellent ax the first two nights, the service was not. Our server, Kathleen, was not particularly warm or welcoming and after ordering it took 40 minutes for our food to finally arrive without being checked in on once.
Celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary on Aug. 9th. Everything was perfect - greeting, service, food, cocktails, wine and beautiful sunset!!!!
The previous week we were there with our kids and grandkids. All of us agree, it’s our favorite place to eat on Kaanapali beach. Thank you
Great food and Dave was serving us and he did an amazing job. Food was priced right
Japengo is our must stop for sushi on Maui. Amazing sushi bar. Top notch, VERY fresh sushi.
Server a bit aloof, but everything else was as good as always!
Delicious California roll and beautiful setting. We took kids and they liked the chicken fingers. Quite $$$ but worth it!
We have been coming here fir the last 5+ years. The food is always stellar. Amazing views at sunset!
The Best beautiful exquisite experience in Maui!!! Thank you!!!
The last two dinner have been much better than the one previous dinner where there was a huge
problem with our reservation, seating, and proper staffing levels in the patio area.
Food has always been great.
Outstanding as always. The filet is the best! Our fav restaurant in Maui!
I’ve been here before but this time it’s not worth it. quality gone down. Will never go back and would not recommend
One of our favorite places to eat on the entire island of Maui. All the wait staff and personnel are amazing, but we have had exceptional service time and again from Sheri. They make wonderful passionfruit martinis, unbelievable yellowtail with watermelon (simply melts in your mouth), and fantastic mixed shellfish dishes. But, the restaurant is made even more wonderful by the ambience. It is built outdoors in a large tree overlooking the Pacific. Simply paradise.
Chef special roll was excellent , recommended fried calamari was small pieces and wasn’t too good. Seafood udon was delicious and seafood was fresh & delicious. Recommended Manila clams were fresh & tasty . Service was okay. Had to ask & waited for soy sauce after sushi roll was served.
I was referred by a friend and he said your sushi was 100 times batter than Sensei kapalua. The mahi mahi plate was good but the sushi was just okay. Sensei is way better, jepengo is over priced. Service was good but didn't exceed expectations.
As a local I won't refer or return my self.
Hopefully this helps
Best sushi!!!! recommend by our friends and it did not disappoint. Will be back for sure.
Still one of our favorite sushi places in Maui!
Supef expensive but good quality and large portions. Skip a full meal and insteadhang at the bar for coctails, view and appetizers!
Honeymoon dinner. All the food was top notch-especially ribs and meatball appetizers. Comped us a delicious dessert as well because of the special occasion. Truly delicious meal!
They call a sushi, bit they don’t know how to prepare a nigiri.
Service was really slow
The ambiance is great
Great setting, service, food. Would recommend to everyone.
Japengo never fails. Great ambiance, great food and service was awesome. Our server Desiree was super nice, knowledgeable and very friendly. She made every effort to make sure our birthday dinner celebration was memorable.
Too much potatoes and not enough seafood on plates. Good quality seafood
My sister and I shared 3 rolls for dinner and it was more than enough food for us because the rolls were so big (nearly impossible to eat in one bite), which justified the prices. The fish was fresh and the rolls were delicious. We sat overlooking the pool and ocean and it was beautiful!
This place was absolutely great. Food was terrific. Service was excellent
Our favorite place for sushi on the island - all ingredients are incredibly fresh and sushi roll portion sizes are great!
Great food and scenic seating at sunset. Service was great.
We went to Japengo for sushi and were not disappointed! We had 4 delicious rolls and great drinks.
Excellent Asian dinner. The Blackened and Grilled Ahi were both outstanding. Several items on the menu can be ordered as half size/half price, a welcome option if you are eating lite. Restaurant overlooks the pool and the ocean. Make reservations. Not overpriced considering your on Maui and at the Hyatt.
Good sushi. Beautiful setting. My co workers ordered a half portion. Some main dishes are available in half portions which is really neat. Goat cheese, cheese cake was amazing.
Excellent food and service! The views are great as well!
Loved the food and the ambiance.
Excellent very fresh food, service was slow and to be desired but the server was kind. Bartender was very nice, we got a couple drinks while waiting for our table
