Best restaurant in Ka'anapali. Ate there three times last week. Sit at the sushi bar or even better, the main bar for ambience.

Sat at the bar about sunset and the views are spectacular. The bartender John was welcoming and very friendly. He helped with menu suggestions. Everything we tried was very good.

Best food so far in Hawai’i. Service and food both are excellent. We are vegetarians and our server was very helpful also.

I know there are lots of good reviews on this place, but our experience was totally subpar. The food was served cold, the pork chop I had was very fatty, and the fish was undercooked. Service was friendly, and the view and ambience are first-rate.

Because of eating a big, late lunch we were looking for something fairly light at our hotel and ended up at Japengo. The chirashi with a flight of sake filled the bill nicely. The fish assortment included some varieties that we can not get on...More

All of their menus are available online but you need to go through the Hyatt website to see them. There is no posted keiki menu but we saw many families with young children there so there probably are non-published options.
