Service was ok not great but ok
The food was AMAZING! I grew up here on Maui and to have Chow Fun and Fried Rice made with with such care was absolutely mind blowing. Our server, Desiree, was so kind and made us feel like ‘Ohana. The service was great! The malasadas were soo Ono and the 1/2 serving portions were surprisingly huge! Will definitely come here again.
Everything was lovely & delicious!! The service was gracious & efficient, dishes delicious, and wine well chilled. The view is fantastic!
I just want to say that my boyfriend really enjoyed his birthday here. It was our first time and it was so worth it. It was intimate, it was relaxed (did not feel rushed)c and the service was fantastic. My favorites dish was the blackened ahi sushi roll OMG!!!! I think I could eat like 5 dishes of it. I surprised my boyfriend with this and he had a smile on the whole time. Every food bite we both rolled our eyes back! Omg! Wow! Our busses Jerry was so awesome! Our sever, local guy, didn’t rush us and made us feel comfortable. Please go here and enjoy the scenery and food. Definitely going there again! Thank you!
We have always loved this restaurant for its beautiful view and serenity; we have been staying at the Hyatt for years. Although it was not entirely the staff's fault because the number of available tables was limited due to high winds and the possibility of rain, we were seated in a room with several large parties, and the noise level was unbearable! It entirely ruined our dining experience and truly ruined our memories of this very special place. We made a reservation well in advance and, as we were leaving, saw that they had seated other couples outside. Unfortunately, despite the fact that we were a middle aged couple of two, the hostess chose to seat us in a room with several large groups in their 20s who were drinking and speaking very loudly! When the weather is nice and you are seated outside, I would still recommend but I would never go back if the wind covers are down. If you do, ask to be reseated immediately if you are not happy. I wish that we had done so!
All the food is incredible! Service is excellent!
And the views are breathtaking!
If you have never tried ..... it’s a MUST!!!
Great place for sushi
Great sushi, but very expensive. Slow and inattentive service despite the meal costing over $500.
Great food, felt a little rushed by server but he was very friendly.
This was our second trip to Maui where we ate at Japengo. This last trip we actually ate there twice. I got the Honolulu Roll and fried rice. Both were really good. The ambiance is very nice as well. Try to make a reservation for sunset and outside if you can.
We loved the curry calamari . Black cod was tasty. Would recommend. Spicy edamame was delish
Freshest sashimi on Maui, served by the nicest chefs! Japengo never disappoints. Just ask the African penguins.
Had a delightful dinner for 4 at Japengo. Food was top notch and presentation when served was great. Service a little slow, but we came for the evening and were in no rush once we had our wine and cocktails. The hamachi with watermelon appetizer was exquisite and a must try. Enjoy if you are near the Hyatt.
This a the Best sushi on Maui and the main entrees are amazing as well. Service was great Sherry you Rock!
We had a lovely tropical evening, sheltered from a light rain~ Food was Yummy & service attentive.
Freshest sushi/sashimi on Maui. The cooked entrees and apps were great too (especially the duck meatballs!!). We go multiple times whenever we visit Maui, because the fish is so outstanding! Service is excellent, too. This place is consistently excellent and worth the trip. Yum.
Our favorite Maui restaurant!
This is our third dining experience at Japengo. They never disappoint. Food is consistently creative and consistent. Sometimes we go with their sushi and or rolls. This time my husband and I ordered the Japengo salad and their Mahi Mahi. Generous portions. Highly recommend. We went there for dinner.
Food was excellent and so was service. A bit pricey but it really is worth it for a special occasion!
Great food and even better service!!! Made for a wonderful vacation
Hostess mentioned that they knew it was my birthday. Nothing happened after that. Was sat on the the patio, beautiful view. Lightning and thunder started , saw the rain coming. Had to flag down the manager and ask where we were going to sit if it started raining. They took about 10 minutes to figure out where they were going to move us. Started to drizzle, kids were getting wet- did'nt hear back from the manager, so we got up and started walking back to main covered section of the restaurant. Kids started crying because they were wet and cold. Staff was very kind and considerate to our little kids, brought a blanket and smoothie to sooth them from getting wet. Service was rushed, had to flag down the server because she walked away while we were placing the order and did'nt finish. Food took a long time. Reservation was at 6:30, did'nt eat dinner until 7:20-7:30. Experience was mediocre for price point.
Delicious food. The view fantastic! Good s little rich.
When we visit Maui we always go to Japengo! Their sushi is excellent - fresh & beautifully presented - always delicious! We tried their ribs as an appetizer & found them a little disappointing. The cocktails were. perfect as was the ambiance - we sat in a covered area but open to the outdoors. Great service! We will return for sure!
Fantastic experience. Great food, great atmosphere!
Not accommodating at all. I asked for different seat - I made my reservation early and they sat me in the corner
Went here years ago and had a great time. Returned this time and now I am gluten free. They had a menu to accommodate which was wonderful but everything we ordered of it was exceptionally bland tasting and quite boring. Waiter was nice but was overworked and was not able to attend to our needs. Refills were never offered in the 1.5 hours we were there and glasses were all empty. Really expensive for such disappointing experience.
Great time with great food
Excellent service and food! Great environment for a sunset family dinner.
Food was excellent..second trip here in past couple months...service was attentive and pleasant..left us alone yet always available to refill water or bring more sauces
The ahi roll was amazing. Great live music before sitting down at our table.
A great place with a romantic view, and the seafood in particular was awesome
Excellent food, service and atmosphere! ***Had a drink in bar area (premium liquor on rocks $14) and was charged $20 for same drink while dining! Manager came over and said they probably under charged us at bar. Went to a similar fine dining establishment in area and asked the bartender about this practice and he was amazed and said they would never do that!
Server and abratender provided exceptional service. Host stand crew was very unfriendly
Great location right above pool and overlooking ocean.
Most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen
We chose to dine at Japengo at sunset, and even though it was somewhat overcast, the view and the ambiance was wonderful. At the servers recommendation, we tried several different dishes. Japengo offers half orders of some dishes, plus we shared the entree. We loved the scallops, which were a special on the evening we were there. We also thought the Lahaina Roll was excellent. We were less excited about the fried rice we ordered, but it was still good. I don't know if the server had too many tables or whether he just forgot us from time to time, but the service could have been better. The server was very knowledgeable about the various dishes, however, and gave us good recommendations.
Love Japengo!! If we’re goin to Maui, we’re goin to Japengo!!
I ordered the evening special, mahi-mahi and lobster with a white wine sauce. My meal was cold. Flavour would have been awesome if the meal would have been hot.
Won’t be returning, very expensive and not worth it.
Excellent Food. Great ocean view! Fun evening.
