I have reviewed this restaurant in the past and have eaten here many times since. Japengo remains one of the best, most consistent restaurants here in Ka'anapali. Their sushi is fresh and delicious, their dining room menu is interesting and the service is top notch. We always eat at the sushi counter and the chefs are fast, entertaining and very... More

Very good if you're in the hotel, but not somewhere I'd go out of my way to visit again. I didn't try any sushi as my dinner partner doesn't enjoy it, so perhaps that would have changed things. My mahimahi was perfectly cooked, as was the fried rice. The manila clams and banana cream dessert were also both excellent.

The food... our limited... More

Was given recommendation of this place by a few folks at the Ritz Carlton and it did not disappoint. Sat at the bar (you need reservations to have a table, it gets busy before 9pm) I started out with the duck pot stickers and amazing combo with cilantro mint pesto and ponzu, perfect balance to the rich flavor of the...

The food was excellent, my husband loved his monchong. This was also one of the best locations we watched the sunset from. We got amazing pictures right from the table.
