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 you will find our menu innovative, uninhibited, and distinctly fun! Incomplete parties will not be sat until complete.

We wanted a light lunch and stopped in Hapa Sushi. They have great sushi that is very reasonably priced. We wanted to try something new and had the Statue of Liberty which has apples in it. It was very refreshing. We also tried another roll that included lobster tempura and asparagus. It was really delicious, although the pieces were huge... More

Hapa is situated on the north part of the Cherry Creek shopping district. We visited this place on a hot day and we could sit outside, along the street. The food was great. We know when we get good Unagi!

Went here for a business dinner. You definitely need a reservation. We ordered several rolls to share and everything was fresh and tasted great. I will definitely return when going to Denver,

Forget your typical California roll. Reading the menu alone is a lot of fun, let alone eating the food. We had the calamari appetizer, really, really fresh and the mango salsa very tasty. Just to give you an idea of what this place is like, we had the "threesome" cocktail, the "XXX" roll, selected Nigiri and the Hapapeno roll. Fresh... More

Loved the sushi here! It was fresh and flavoursome! They had a large variety of sushi rolls from basic through vegetarian to really funcky. We tried a few of reach and I decided to stick to the basic raw salmon and tuna. The size of the rolls is decent. We shared so not sure how many each had but you'll... More

I love sushi and eat it whenever I can. I love the fresh raw fish combination. This restaurant came highly recommended from our concierge and the reviews on TA seemed good so we were game to try it. It wasn't bad, it was okay but I found it odd that so many rolls were baked, mostly cooked/fried and with a... More

A friend and I ended up at Hapa Sushi for happy hour yesterday! We shared the (4) Hawaiian sliders which were fantastic, the (5) pork potstickers which were so delicious. I had the spider roll, which was ok and my friend had the Philly roll. The potstickers and the sliders were out of this world and I would definitely will... More
