I was disappointed in the fact that my favorite app. wasn't on the menu due to Covid. The Sushi is consistently good.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we’re given one of the best tables right over looking the ocean. It was a beautiful sunset with amazing food and service. I would highly recommend.

Food and ambiance was lovely at Japengo. We had amazing bao buns and sushi. That said, we waited an hour for our table despite having a reservation and didn’t see a waiter for 20 minutes after that once seated. It also took 40 minutes to get our food and then their kitchen closed not allowing us to purchase more food. Definitely need more staff and better management.

Would not recommend if you plan on dining alone. My waitress did not explain the menu to me, or the specials… when I ordered a sashimi assortment, chef’s pick, she placed the platter on my table without explaining what each one was. I tried flagging her down but she was no where to be found. When I asked her later, she told me she couldn’t tell me what I got because I had already eaten it. I also ordered a side of mushrooms with my sashimi that came out 15 min later than the fish…. I expected better service from such a restaurant- and I noticed better service happening all around me. Might have been because I took up a table for 4 on a Friday night, so should be ok if you’re not dining alone.

We waited for a long time for a drink at the bar and then was called for our table. We were told the waitress would bring our drinks but we didn’t see her for a long time. I tried to go pick up the drinks at the bar and the bartender wouldn’t give them to me. He said the waitress had to get them so we waited again. We also ordered an appetizer that was served with our dinner and not before. The food was good but not worth the horrible service?

We had a problem with the seating we made a reservation way ahead of time. They placed us in two unacceptable tables , there were plenty. We felt we were not acceptable customers. We dont understand as we were trying to understand we have dined there a minimum 10 times

FANTASTIC sushi and sashimi. The pork buns literally melt in your mouth. Our waiter Jeff was so nice and took the time to explain the fish in each plate we ordered. If they weren’t already booked the rest of our vacation, I absolutely would have eaten here again!

Food quality was outstanding. The service was a bit slow and the food prices a bit high. Parking was a bit difficult due to the small lot and lack of spaces.

Our dinners were absolutely superb. Two items particularly stood out: (1) the pork chop was the best I've ever had. Over two inches thick, seared to perfection, full of flavor, white throughout while still moist and juicy. (2) The monchong (freshly caught local seafood) was off the charts good. Also, Japengo is what I call a "chef level" eatery. In other words, the expertise of the chef shined in the unique sauces and flavors he/she created. All in all, 10 out of 10. Highly recommended!

My husband and I are celebrating our honeymoon in Maui. We decided to eat at Japengo for sushi. We had this reservation booked for a few months and we were looking forward to the meal. We sat down and I informed my server of a shrimp allergy. I was told because of this I shouldn’t order any sushi rolls, only sashimi, due to cross contamination of the rice. This was a huge disappointment… I am a huge sushi lover, and this was the only sushi dinner we booked during our honeymoon. Arriving to dinner and being told you can’t have the sushi was a giant let down. My husband and I contemplated leaving and not ordering dinner, but decided to stay. For the price of the food being served, one would think that there would be more care and consideration for those with food allergies.

The service was impeccable! Every team member from greeter to wait staff and support staff was unbelievably attentive and gracious! I was celebrating my birthday and everyone made the occasion unforgettable. I will most definitely return. The sushi, clams, and fried rice were tantalizing! My friends and I absolutely loved the experience!

This place is a must if you are in Maui! The food is incredible. I ordered sushi, boyfriend ordered mahi mahi, our friends order short ribs and steak…everyone was silently eating their food. It was that good. I highly recommend! The only downfall was we had a reservation but we had to wait 5 minutes to be seated and we were seated pretty far back away from the ocean. Otherwise, everything was phenomenal!

Reservations was made 2 months in advance for 7:30pm. We arrived at 7:25pm and were not seated until 7:50pm. Once seated we made our drink, appetizer, and meal order at the same time in hopes to expedite our dinner. Our drinks came, our appetizers came 10min later...then...we waited for 20min. Our server said the kitchen has our meal coming in just a few minutes. 10min later he brought my wife’s meal and said my steak will be out in just a few minutes. This is now 30 minutes after ordering a steak and a sushi roll. ANOTHER 15 minutes goes by and still no steak. My wife has been sitting with her meal waiting to eat for 20min at this point. Our server comes out and apologizes for the delay and brings me my SIDES. “Here, at least you can have something to eat.” He says he’s sorry and is going to comp my steak. At nearly ONE HOUR my steak comes out and I ask him for a box at the time he drops it off. He again apologizes and asks if the manager had come to speak to us. Nope, didn’t hear a peep just sat respectfully for over an HOUR after ordering a $70 steak to be served a rare steak that takes 6min to prepare. Problem is their kitchen is burdened with “carry out” orders and the dine in guests are paying the price and the experience is down graded. Don’t make this your “fine dining” meal.

Drunks screaming at the table next to us. Wait staff serving more shots. Offered us and everyone in the restaurant free desert. Very in inspired food. Gone way down from 2019.

Very disappointed.

The food was excellent. The ambiance was great. We were seated late (the hostess missed our name in the list and we were passed over a few times until I brought it to her attention). We had several sushi rolls and the scallops which were cooked to divine perfection, melt in your mouth delicious. All in all it was a great evening.
