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.

Prettty restaurant with a nice ambience

I really enjoyed the pork belly appetizer. The sushi was relatively fresh for a place that is not near the ocean. It was some of the better service I have received in Boulder and it was well-priced for sushi.

On the Pearl Street mall, Japango has a wonderful variety of sushi and other Japanese foods. They have a Tuesday might special which is, essentially, an all-you-can-eat menu, that gives you a chance to sample just about everything they have. It's a little pricey, but well worth the value if you are both hungry and experimental. Sometimes the service can... More

I lived in Boulder for 10 years and dined at Japango regularly and enjoyed it. I recently was back in Boulder for a visit and five of us dined there and had a uniformly terrible experience... We did not have a complicated order, really pretty straightforward, yet it took over 45 minutes to get it. It was 9 p.m. on... More

Stanley is probably the best bartender and makes an old fashioned that could win awards. The food is also great and the sushi is fresh. Try the cactus roll and an old fashioned and your night...

Good sushi menu, with lots of standard cuts and rulls. They offer an innovative drink menu. Ask Bar Manager, Stan to make you an exotic cocktail!

The atmosphere was wonderful and the service was excellent. The wattress, Madison, was very knowledgeable about the Saki and various rolls. She was a super help and I would go back just to sit in her area because she made the evening with my family. The sushi was fresh and everything was very good. Wonderful place to sit with friends...

The atomosphere, waiter and food all A+++ We happened to get there during happy hour, which was just an added bonus as they offered special rolls and drinks at a slight discount. We ate in the lounge area which was really fun as it is located at the front in the center of everything. Make a res in advance as... More

One of the highlights of our first visit to Boulder. College-aged kids loved it, too. Yummy food, great presentation and lively, modern vibe. Excellent service, even though it was packed. Will be our "GO TO" place when in town.

Eight of us ate dinner here on our visit to Boulder. The place is packed, so I advise reservations, even during the week. Sushi is fantastic, all made to order, but you must be patient. A memorable meal.
