Service was poor. Food was good. They made a fuss about asking for a table closer to the water before we sat down and the service was downhill from there.

The food was wonderful. Host team and bar were off their game but the waitress & manager took care of the problem gracefully and helpfully and everyone left having had a nice evening. Mistakes happen so it’s good to know when a place will take great care of you on the occasion things don’t go perfectly.

Just another wonderful meal on Maui. We loved that the restaurant offered many half portions, which allowed us to try more foods.

Our first night at the Hyatt, and we were looking for chill and Hawaii!! Great menu and we sampled several appetizers (meatballs were the heat). The sushi offering a we’re amazing. And service was perfect. This is not like hotel service. You should go here.

We had a terrific meal at Japengo. Service was great, and the sushi was fresh. We ended our meal with their malasadas, an island favorite! Nothing like warm pillowy donuts with a hot pot of tea!

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
