The food as well as the service was as we remembered. It had been several years but did not disappoint. We actually said it might have been the same table 😊

Japengo was not as expected. We were tucked way back under the overhang in a stark area with no ambiance. We could have been anywhere other than Hawaii. So disappointing that we are canceling our next reservation there.

Food was all good except shrimp tempura roll dry and not much flavor.
Scallops were excellent.
Expensive but beautiful setting for a special occasion.

Great location, sushi was good. Waitress forgot our appetizer. Wired water stain appeared on the table from our water glass. Maybe nice table linen would have added a nice touch.

Never disappoints, even after a year of Covid restrictions. We’ve been dining at the Hyatt’s Japengo for many, many years, and it is always a treat when vacationing in Kaanapali, Maui. This year we visited in June, just post-covid, and made sure we made dinner reservations 2 months in advance. If you don’t have advance reservations, chances are you won’t be seated, so make them early! At this time, Japengo still adheres to social distancing, so with 8 people, we were place at two tables spaced apart. No menus, as you can access their menu with a QR on your smart phone. Japengo offers fresh sushi, sashimi, and other Japanese-influenced cuisine. It offers full entrees of fish, steak, pork that start at about $30.00. However, we like to sip the Mai-Tai’s and order several small starter dishes for a variety. There is also a Kid’s Menu which was a relief for the younger children —who had a grilled cheese sandwich and chicken tenders, and “Shirley Temple” drinks. It’s all fresh and delicious. The desserts are outstanding, made with local tropical flavors with large slices that are easily shared. Finally, the ambience! Japengo’s seating is mostly outdoors surrounded by fountains and overlooking the Hyatt’s pools and the ocean. I can’t recommend it enough —just reserve dinner in advance.

Disappointed that the portion of seared ahi had changed (much smaller) and instead of serving with their small side of boy choy they instead served with a few radishes on the plate. Radishes? Come now!
Went from a great place to go to another disappointment🥴

I was facing looking at dirty dishes, stuck in a corner. We got all food but one dish at a reasonable time, but my main dish - we ate (appetizers, drink) and then a lot later my dish was brought out only to find out it was not what I ordered. I was over it and ready to go since the other person with me had received his food and ate already. so I asked it to be replaced, but I would take it to go. When we got the bill the replacement order was added, but they also left the wrong order (dish I didn’t order or was taking with me) on my bill! I think at that point I was so frustrated that I filled out the bill and didn’t realize it wasn’t the final receipt. Walked out. Got a call to return because apparently i hadn’t paid or they didn’t run my card. I went back and the manager didn’t ask how I was, how our experience was and/or anything that would maybe help her get some feedback. She was just like you didn’t do this right, I need you to pay. Not in those words but pretty short. I could see she just wanted me out of her hair. I’m living on the island this yr; from Los Angeles. I’m a foodie and love fine dining; I would say I do it often. This is probably the worst dinning experience I’ve had to endure in the last 10yrs. The sad part is that my boyfriend and I were there celebrating our 2yr anniversary, so really was hoping to have a better evening than what Japengo offered.

The view at Japengo is absolutely breathtaking. Every dish we tried was delicious & we tried appetizers, entrees, sides & desserts. The staff was very helpful & friendly & efficient. Our food arrived in a timely manner. We highly recommend eating here. We had a lovely dining experience & will most certainly be back.

I brought my family to Japengo for dinner. 5 of us. We had two bottles of wine, 4 glasses of beer a number of appetizers which were fantastic Rainbow Roll, curry calamari, pork buns and thai pancakes. all wonderful and all reasonably priced. We then split 3 dinners, fried rice, beef noodles and udon noodles which were more expensive and not very tasty. The total with tip was $480!!!

On top of the substantial price for dinner, almost $100 per person, they don't validate parking and the Hyatt charges $14 for valet parking. I felt the dinners were over priced for the quality. The appetizers were priced well and absolutely delicious. They also should validate parking if you are going to eat there.

Will think twice before coming here again. Only maybe for appetizers.

We dined in for dinner and enjoyed the DELICIOUS seafood pancake for an appetizer and the blackened ahi roll as an entree. The three star food rating is for the tofu vegetable “stir fry” which tasted more like sautéed vegetables in butter with very few pieces of tofu (maybe 5 small cubes?). If it had been described as sautéed vegetables it would be a different story, but the taste of butter was off putting in what was supposed to be an asian stir fry. The service, ambiance, and experience as a whole was lovely, but that veggie entree left something to be desired. I’d go back just for the pancake, though!! So tasty.

A number of people recommended this place for our visit to Maui and we love sushi so we booked several weeks in advance. The food was delicious and service excellent. The only thing I will say, though, is that we were seated inside and it was rather dark and full of the kitchen noises. For the prices, I would much rather have been outside with the beautiful views. I would say if you can't get a table outside, this restaurant isn't worth the money.
