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.

Nice Sushi Place on Pearl Street

One of several Hapa sushi restaurants in Denver metro area. This one is on pearl street and is smaller than some of the others. Good menu and kid friendly. Can be loud, if you go on the weekend.

as a sushi restaurant in a landlocked state, this is a pretty good place. I was surprised by the portions (the Agadashi Tofu was 4x the size of a normal portion). that being said, I was disappointed by the utter fixation on Asparagus in most of the maki. It subverted the ordering of several things that would have otherwise been... More

It's a very pretty restaurant. They had a good range of sushi, but the roll I got didn't taste as good as it sounded. The gyoza appetizer wasn't very good either. Overall, it was okay. I probably won't go back.

Late night visit with live music, sushi and cocktails. Mango gin ginger cocktail was when having. I'm not a huge sushi fan, but a friend ordered a large variety that impressed me, nothing I didn't like and that's saying something. If it was lacking at all it was in service, waitresses were attentive when present but stretched a little thin... More

Very good restaurant, luckily they have more to the menu than just sushi. I had the kalua pork rice bowl and was very filling. Extensive menu with decent pricing. Waitstaff very professional and courteous. Will definitely return

A favorite stop when visiting our son at CU Boulder during the year. They are open late, always busy, and serve a wide array of sushi, rolls and drinks. Some favorite rolls are the Firecracker, the Booty Call (using an entire lobster tail) and the Spider (tempura soft shelled crab). Request a table near the front or a seat at... More

We've visited to Hapa on many occasion and for the most part had a good experience. However the last time we visited for happy hour this was far from the case. We arrived a tiny bit before the happy hour rush, as soon as we got to our table the server was there asking for drink order, we hadn't even... More

Visiting from the cold NE where there are still pile of snow on the ground and ice on the lakes, I was beyond thrilled to sit on the patio in the sun for early happy hour. This is one of those restaurants that always delivers the great experience that you remember from past visits. As a vegetarian, sushi restaurants can... More

Had a late lunch on a Saturday. I believe it's their "happy hour" 4-5?? The hostess was great. Very friendly and attentive. Got us seated right away, definitely a++. The service was excellent even as they were training a newbie. Now for the food. "The multiple orgasm" roll is amazing and their tuna plate on the happy hour menu is... More

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.
