Sushi
The name Hapa is derived from the Hawaiian term that describes a harmonious blend of Asian and American cultures. Like our name, our food reflects this dynamic combination. The menu is based on traditional Japanese cooking fundamentals which are then amplified, muted, or mixed with influences from many different styles of cooking until they are something completely new: they're Hapa. We have stretched the boundaries of creativity to develop dishes that defy all the rules while holding true to our roots. We hope that you will find our menu innovative, uninhibited, and distinctly fun! Incomplete parties will not be sat until complete.

    Service was very slow. When we finally asked about our food, we were told they made the wrong sushi roll and had to remake a new one. The appetizers and one meal came out quickly but the other two meals arrived 40 minutes later. Waiter was pleasant enough but doesn’t make up for the wait. It was not very busy either.

    We live in Boulder part of the year and always go to a different sushi restaurant. We decided to try Hapa. It was gross!!!! The fish does not taste fresh. They bury it in sauces and frying but it’s some of the worst sushi I’ve ever had. I’m disappointed that the ratings are so high and that people visiting our lovely town will go there thinking it will be good. The outside dining was enjoyable though. Go find the folks across the walking mall. Their sushi is wayyyyy better.

    We ate outside on Pearl Street Mall area, so it was a bit loud and the tables are rather close together making it a bit difficult to sit comfortably, but other than that, we enjoyed the food!

    We came for a wonderful dinner last night and got just that! Always an excellent meal here! We had the vegetable gyoza, and seasoned edamame, and 3 amazingly fabulous rolls. Our server, Tehya, was so good too! It was my birthday (we didn’t say anything) and the meal was definitely special! Yummy!! Thank you for a wonderful evening!

    I love hapa! I have a peanut, treenut, and sesame allergy and they are very accommodating. I’ve never found a place I feel comfortable and safe eating sushi. Not only do they have a helpful staff, but it also tastes amazing! I love the outdoor seating and being in the middle of Pearl street. The atomosphere and overall appeal keeps me coming back every week!

    Hapa Sushi Grill & Sake Bar - Pearl St. BoulderResponded on August 19, 2022Thank you, Makenna! Dietary restrictions hit home for us so we try to be as accommodating as we possibly can :) We look forward to seeing you again next week!

    We have been going to Hapa for years but the value vs the food is no longer there. Last night was $160 plus tip = close to $200 and it’s just not sustainable for a week night dinner, family of 4. Also had serious side effects from the salad dressing - maybe the sesame oil in it??

    The food was amazing! My husband loved the sushi and the chicken teriyaki was cooked perfectly. We loved it except for the space. We were placed in a table in the center of the narrow room, with people walking around us on two sides. I couldn’t put my elbow slightly out to cut my chicken without bumping someone. A staff member taking someone’s order at the next table (maybe a foot away from us) bumped into my seated husband while we were eating. It was a rather hectic, frantic environment, not great for the romantic date night it was supposed to be. If you’re eating inside, request to be seated at the counter or in the back.

    Hapa Sushi Grill & Sake Bar - Pearl St. BoulderResponded on August 9, 2022Hi Angela, we are happy to hear you enjoyed the food! We are sorry for our tight seating. We're currently working on something so fix this :)
