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.

Hostess gave away our table request that was made 2 months ago 30 minutes prior to our arrival. Not very accommodating.

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.

Japengo chefs are always on point!!! Billy, Norman, Brian and the other fellas are above and beyond. Living 45 min away it’s always worth the drive to have the best sushi. Still and always the best.

Mahalo again for the outstanding food and service.

We just arrived to Maui and Japengo was our first dinner reservation. We were seated b a group of 7, were one man couldn’t stop cussing, and being generally louder than expected. He acted as if he was at a bar. Our waiter, had a hard time keeping our drinks refilled, and no one asked the loud mouth to quiet down. Expensive dinner for such a lousy atmosphere and clientele.

Wonderful as expected! Tried the seafood pancake and it blew our minds, so pleased. Crisp and crunchy outside, creamy and delicious inside with a beautiful seafood filling. i would order it again without hesitation as well as the Alaskan black cod with a teriyaki cream sauce, pair those with the ocean wakame salad, a seaweed salad with a nice crunch and some good sake and it’s a visit to food paradise!

I don’t understand (nor recommend) the practice of) having a small round table set up where the wait staff kept loudly plunking dirty dishes - located right behind our table for two and right behind my daughter. It’s unsightly and jarring. Also when I was seated and trying to order my first drink, our waitress basically said to hold on before she would take our drink order until she brought us water.

Loved the flight of sake. Food was delish.

Thanks for listening

Karina
