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!

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

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

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.

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

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!

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.
