Japango, set in a historic building just West of Broadway on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, CO, offers a dynamic combination of traditional and contemporary Japanese cuisine. In many ways this wildly popular restaurant feels like a direct extension of Boulder itself--sophisticated, casual and healthy. Guests enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in an award winning space designed by nationally acclaimed architect Scott Rodwin. It’s a dynamic setting, the perfect place for a first date, a family gathering, or a night out with friends. The dining room is intimate and lively while unpretentiously elegant. Japango features a large central sushi bar, vibrant colors, and a rich material palette of wood, stone and metal, which always provides an upscale dining experience. In addition to offering one of the best happy hours in town, Japango is also home to Boulder's original all-you-can-eat sushi night. The restaurant's full bar hosts unique house cocktails and an extensive sake menu.

Good Space. Very Good Sushi.

Really enjoyed crispy brussel sprout appetizer and tuna sushi was fresh and well prepared. Sake Adams wine were great. Miso soup was especially flavorful. Tempura wasn't as crisp and hot as I would have liked but still good. Service was very good. Loud but good space. Would definitely go back.

Sometimes the best sushi in town - sometimes just great sushi. Most of the time the best. Great location and nice interior

In comfortable surroundings, a superb lunch with bento boxes, unagi, green tea crème brulee...all great dishes.... The jelly fish tank is amazing and staff was knowledgeable about this great gimmick. Our feeding time was at 1 pm, jelly fish feeding time is at 3 PM

Just stopped in to catch the end of a football game and have a drink. The two bartenders really know their cocktails and we ended up staying a bit longer because of that. I highly recommend this bar if you like hand crafted cocktails

My hubby & I made a quick trip to CO. As a treat we went out for sushi. This was a great place to eat. The staff was amazing and so was the food. My favorite was the Cactus Roll. YUM!!

I have not been here for 7 years, and it was great to enjoy Japango again. The increased the size of the restaurant by adding a nice new bar area. Beautiful!

I had lunch with a group attending training in Boulder. Service was prompt and accommodated a large group's needs. We had a wide variety of rolls and they were all excellent. Miso soup was the perfect starter for the meal and the assorted mochi was the perfect ending for a great meal. Atmosphere is casual and elegant, perfect for a... More

I have been going here for years and have never had a bad meal. It was remodeled a couple of years ago which has made it even better with a more "urban" atmosphere. My last visit about 2 weeks ago was for late night happy hour (starts at 10) which is an amazing deal, specialty rolls are half price. I... More

So disappointed. I tried to stop in here at 4:00 on a Friday afternoon with my family of 4. The place was empty, but I was told that we could not get a booth because they were all reserved for later. After walking around Pearl Street looking for somewhere else to eat, we decided to place an order to go.... More
