Description: 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.

I absolutely love this place! We have never had a bad roll there. It gets a little crowded and the tables are pretty close together but it isn't a huge deal. I have a sushi restaurant 5 minutes from my house and I drive about 30 minutes to get here because it is so good. Anytime we have an out... More

To be honest, I have never actually patronized Hapa when it wasn't happy hour, but that's because the happy hour is excellent. Thurs-Sun from 10:30-midnight Hapa has 2 for $7 sushi rolls and $7 sake bombs (which comes with a large beer and large flask of sake -- thus it's equivalent to about 6 drinks). It's an excellent place to... More

The food is not so good. There are other two places in town that are much better quality than this place. If you don't care about being treated as a customer you can come to this place. I just think that every time that i go here the staff is not nice enough.

This is a restaurant where the owner, the managers, and staff have not the slightest clue why they are in business and frankly, I can't think of a reason either. On a city block lined with choices they wrongly believe that they can put rude wait staff on the restaurant floor who have no concept of how to be polite.... More

We have been going here for more than ten years and the worst it has ever been was pretty good! Normally crowded is the status quo here so there might be a little wait but we have never been disappointed. Be sure to try the specials..

I go to this restaurant ALL THE TIME because I love it so much. The vast majority of their staff is simply wonderful, but of course there's always a bad apple here and there...you can't guarantee great service every time you go to a restaurant like this, but I can assure you that MOST of the wait staff and hostesses...

I went in with a group of about 10 of us. While we were still sitting down, our waitress showed up asking for drink orders. We answered her as best we could with only 30 seconds to look at the menu. Once she got to the 4th person who ordered a water and then asked about a drink, she looked... More

Foreplay, Climax, Booty Call - just a few of the freshest rolls at this hip establishment on the famed Pearl Street. Always hopping, service is quick and excellent.

Right on Pearl Street Mall you'll find this gem. Great service and better food. Sushi is fresh and with options like "multiple orgasm" rolls you can't go wrong. It's not traditional sushi but there are more traditional options as well. We were a large group and sat in 2 connected booths. The staff was great and patient for such a... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch, and the service was very fast and friendly. Carly was an excellent server, she provided some good recommendations. I ordered the avocado roll, foreplay roll and the xxx roll. The sushi was great although I did not enjoy the xxx roll to much because of the oil. What made this such a excellent experience... More
