    We had a great time! The setting was beautiful and we couldn’t believe how fast the service was. The sushi was extremely fresh but a little bland (consistent with all of the cuisine we tried in Maui).

    This was our 2nd stint at Japango, and they did not dissapoint. I especially appreciated our waiter Dave's suggestion that we only order one roll at a time, they can always bring more. Only one roll was needed, even for our two big hungry boys. Everything was scrumptious and perfect.

    A special place for my 68th birthday. The nigiri was delicious, and both of our seafood entrees were wonderful. A lovely spot, although oriented poorly for summer sunsets. Also, the shade was not working that night, so the sun was a bit more direct than would have been optimal.

    We were seated at what must have been the worst table in the restaurant. A dark cavern like table right along what looked like a major walkway. This was despite making reservations months in advance. When we asked for another table got one right near the major walkway near the lobby. Very exposed with noise from the people walking past. Food was decent, but the entire experience was ruined by the awful first table and the barely adequate second table.

    Food and serice is always outstanding, but the hotel has LOST ITS ALOHA. We were not informed we had to pay for parking until we left. We have been going to Japengo since it opened every year multiple times. Last night we finished dinner and went to get our car and we’re then told we must go back inside and stand in-line behind people checking in to PAY FOR PARKING. Complete BS it took 25 minutes to PAY FOR PARKING. Then we were told ITS ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY… BS we have been coming here over 15 years that isn’t true and Maui time is scared standing in line behind check ins is a waste of time. If you value freedom in the USA AND YOUR TIME on Maui is important to you, AVOID AVOID AVOID this hotel and restaurant. We won’t go back to Japengo. Any the staff was all masked up, I believe Hyatt must be requiring it. That is unconditional, most were not were it over their noses so I do not believe it was tge employees choice to wear it.

    When I first book the restaurant I did not even realize it was on the property of our resort. I booked it based off of reviews. And I am glad I did. The food was phenomenal, service great, and it is in a great location over looking the ocean towards sunset. Loved everything we had.

    was there 5 years ago and couldn't wait to return again. the food wasn't the same. ordered ahi tuna steak- it was cooked well done. not what I would have imagined. service was not great either. had waitress try to take my glass of wine while some wine was still in it. when I pay 20 for a glass of wine, I want to drink the entire glass. same thing with my remaining tuna steak, my husband wanted to eat it and the waitress tried to clear it away. very disappointed ... especially for the money.

    This was our second time at Japengo. Sadly we had a poor experience. We were seated 15 min after our reservation at a table of 6 even though we were 3 ppl. Additionally we were seated right next to a loud server station even though there were smaller tables available that were in a much nicer area of restaurant. The sushi was just ok but not great and not worth the price we paid. Probably will not return.

    Just fine but expected more flavor and sophistication from the variety of the ingredients and presentation. Although not overpriced relative to similar restaurants in the area, the value is just not there. You will have a meal that is just fine but is unlikely to be memorable. Service was fine and attentive.

    Waitress wasn’t friendly. The water server came to our table every 5 to 10 minutes to refill water when it wasn’t needed. He was very noticeable when he refilled them by reaching over the whole table each time. Also while I was eating he interrupted again to get a straw wrapper under my plate.. After we were done eating, he immediately cleaned off our table and wiped it with a gross rag. We felt like we were being rushed to leave. Food was way over priced for what it was. Servers should leave a carafe of water to avoid constant interruptions.

    Ok, so we were really looking for a flavorful (party in your mouth) experience, the appetizer of Unagi was the best I’ve ever tasted. However both the main courses fell flat. My scallops had no sear whatsoever, we’re too mushy and flavors fell flat. My husband had the seared Ahi. Cooked well but really needed seasoning. It was quite boring. We come to Maui 2x a year and had never tried Japengo. We probably will not return.

    Menu describing food size is deceptive. Ordered large prawns and scallops and when the were served, they were medium at best and the prawns tasted different. Ordered a lava flow cocktail and the whip cream was off-colored. A couple of hours later, two people in my party suffered from stomach and intestinal issues. Both had the same cocktail. I would not recommend this restaurant to others for food consumption.

    Another evening in a lovely setting watching the sunset and twilight over the ocean. This restaurant is known for seafood and sushi, but we felt like a steak and ordered their fillet. Best fillet we’ve had in a long time! Perfectly tender perfectly done. Sides were delicious. All together another lovely evening at Japengo
