Outstanding food, two very delicious rolls; blackened ahi and chef's roll. Wow! Both excellent. We also shared the tuna and salmon sushi... very good. The duck meatballs were also very good. The shrimp and mango salad got two thumbs up from the Mrs. Service was excellent. Ambience was super, quiet, great views. If/when back to Maui first thing we do... More

The outdoor seating area is beautiful with palm trees, on the ocean and great lighting. The sushi was so fresh and unique. Not cheap but very very good. Our waiter was very friendly and had a great personality. If you want a more casual experience sit in the lounge area as you come in the front door.

When we arrived to be seated, we were recognized and my husband was wished a happy birthday. Our server was very animated and attentive, and so I... More

We stayed at the Hyatt at Ka'anapali for a meeting and stopped in to Japengo on a whim. Really glad we did. You can sit indoors or out, but no matter where you sit you will have a wonderful dining experience with food prepared just as it should be. Ingredients are fresh and tasty and not overdone with sauces etc... More

Wonderful view, great food but the service was unprofessional. Our entrees were put before us before we finished the appetizers. We had to ask the waiter to clear the plates so that there would be room. I have never experienced this in a restaurant of this caliber.

I was visiting the Hyatt Residence Club and was craving Japanese food. Ah, Japengo is right next door at the Hyatt Regency! I grabbed a menu and saw exactly what I wanted... a spicy tuna hand roll! If I had more time I would have ordered almost everything on the menu. Japengo ROCKS!

Top notch meal. One of the best that I have eaten. The service was spectacular. The Japengo salad and upcountry appetizers were superb. The chief selected sashimi were the best. The moito and Cabernet Sauvignon blanch from Napa Valley was an excellent pairing. Great great meal in an awesome atmosphere.
