I wish I would have taken a photo of my sashimi lunch that I ordered because the presentation was beautiful, but it was even tastier than it looked so down it went! Served with miso soup (a tad salty for my palate) and a choice of a good size helping of rice, it was a good value for 9 pieces... More

One of my favorite sushi restaurants! I have been to all of the Denver metro locations and especially like the Boulder location! Always treated wonderfully by the hostess and server. I ordered the Hapa Salad, miso soup and a salmon and avocado roll- all delicious as always! Great food, great service at a great location on beautiful Pearl street in... More

OH my GOODNESS! THE BEST SUSHI I have ever eaten! Hands down! We ordered a multiple orgasm roll (yes, that's the name) -- which is quite aptly named, avocado roll (not as good), caterpillar roll, spider roll & side of steamed edamame in garlic.... ALL was yum, yum. Dessert was split & just as yum - mochi ice cream. Everything,... More

This is one of my favorite restaurant in Boulder. A lot of their sushi rolls are unconventional, but super delicious. Worth a visit, especially during their happy hour!

Got the tuna nachos and crispy ahi tuna appetizers and was pleasantly surprised by both. Also tried the tuna poke which was good as well.

This is by far my favorite sushi restaurant in Boulder. We have been coming here for about 15 years and never tire of the excellent sushi, incredible sake and outstanding service. Although I love sitting outside on a warm summer night, the sushi bar is my second favorite place. It's intimate for a date and fun for friends. All of... More

We ate here one night with an outdoor table. The service was wonderful. No rushing you. Relaxed and fun atmosphere. Great Sushi. Reasonable prices. Really enjoyed the freshness and selections. I'm very picky about Sushi and this was truly excellent. Fun people watching on the Mall. I will definitely be back!

Right on the Pearl Street mall, can eat inside or outside. Can order specific sushi or bowls. Tables for two inside are very close together so difficult to have a private conversation. Service was timely. The combination bowl is a hoody choice to try two different preparations. The sunomono salad had way too much cucumber and not much shrimp. Would... More

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.
