Great location, good food. Something missing though, food was not as fresh as expected even though the location was great. Given food quality, was a bit expensive.

We have been coming to Maui for decades and always try new restaurants. Japengo remains one of our must dining experiences. Often eating here 2 times. The food and sunset views are the best in Maui.

Came during our honeymoon – food was fantastic (I was surprised at how large the portions were given the high standard of the food and cooking), and we were made to feel special given the special occasion. Cannot recommend enough

Best sushi on the island! Generous serving sizes and very fresh. The Hamachi and watermelon was delicious and a half portion worked perfectly. The fried rice was very good too and of course you can't beat the view and great service. We will return for sure!

Good wide ranging Asian menu. The pork rib appetizer is very good. Sushi (Honolulu Roll) was very good. Mahi Mahi dish was grilled and well prepared. Service was recovered after an error was made. Flavors are unique in all the accompaniments.

We have been going to Japengo for some years now. Usually at least twice a year and in the past it was always so good so on this trip we decided to go again... we walked 2 miles drooling with the thought of having their famous rice and amazing sushi. Well... it took almost 30 minutes to get our drinks and to order the food... the waitress was very nice but not very attentive to her tables. But still we were willing to wait to have a meal we remembered from our past visits.
The food finally arrived and we immediately dug in. The rice was flavorless and seemed like it was day old. It took a large amount of soy sauce to make it edible. The Sushi was also off. Not as fresh as in the past. So overall I can sadly say we will not be returning to what was once one of our favorite restaurants in Ka’anapali.

Every time my wife and I come to Maui we eat at Japengo. The food is delicious no matter whether you have dinners or as we did this time appetizers and sushi. Being at an outside table looking at the sunset and never being hurried, enhances the entire dining experience.

Our server's name was Sherri and she was wonderful. We decided on sharing small plates of a Rainbow roll, Asparagus with Sweet Thai chili sauce, which was served "al dente" slightly crisp and wonderful. We also had the vietnamese pancakes which were great.

I had mentioned to Sherri we had gone to another restaurant on Maui, a few days before for my birthday and had a horrible experience. At the end of the dinner she brought us a flaming dessert to make up for the bad birthday dinner experience. Total class. We will definiteely be coming back.

Japengo is always a winner. The staff are superb and always take good care of us, the food is excellent, fresh and thoughtfully comes in two size portions for ease of sharing, and the view at waterfront at sunset is a real beauty. It doesn’t get much better than this on Maui’s West Side! This is our Go To special place with visitors and local friends.
