Description: Japango, set in a historic building just West of Broadway on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, CO, offers a dynamic combination of traditional and contemporary Japanese cuisine. In many ways this wildly popular restaurant feels like a direct extension of Boulder itself--sophisticated, casual and healthy. Guests enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in an award winning space designed by nationally acclaimed architect Scott Rodwin. It’s a dynamic setting, the perfect place for a first date, a family gathering, or a night out with friends. The dining room is intimate and lively while unpretentiously elegant. Japango features a large central sushi bar, vibrant colors, and a rich material palette of wood, stone and metal, which always provides an upscale dining experience. In addition to offering one of the best happy hours in town, Japango is also home to Boulder's original all-you-can-eat sushi night. The restaurant's full bar hosts unique house cocktails and an extensive sake menu.

Staff changes with college season, but the chefs are the same, always smile at you and recognize you when you come back (even if it's been years in between). Sushi is clean, fresh and very good. Better than much of the sushi I've had in Asia.

Always dependable for an excellent meal, so bring your out of town visitors here for sushi. They also do an excellent tempura. Haven't had anything here that wasn't good or excellent.

Happened upon this place during a short visit to Boulder, after hiking the Flatirons. Had a coupon from Restaurant.com.

The food was excellent, service very good. Nice portions and very fresh, good vibe in the place.

There were a number of exotic sushi rolls, though, unfortunately, I can't recall the names.

My Husband and I were walking the Pearl Street Mall and ran across Japango Sushi Restaurant. We were amazed! The decor was exquisite. The Sushi Chef was very friendly and we were in for a TREAT! The Lobster Potstickers (Lobster stuffed wonton served with a wasabi dressing) melted in my mouth. I then had Chicken teriyaki and vegetable tempura, Wonderful and beautiful. My husband had a very tasty sushi roll and assorted sushi plate. Very beautiful and fresh! We can't wait to return and sample their other dishes!

We had a wonderful experience with lots of culinary innovation, great staff and tremendous sushi. A wide variety of creative cuisine and elements of fusion between cultures. Our waiter was excellent as well. We will certainly be back

If you are looking for sushi in Boulder, Japango is a definite option. It's usually necessary to make a reservation since the restaurant is frequently busy. We have never had to wait very long to be seated. The food is consistently good. The sushi is fresh and made to order. Some of the sushi items are creative. The entrees are equally delicious, but we usually focus on the sushi. We have been pleased with the youthful and friendly wait staff.

Over the last few years, I have eaten at this restaurant several times. My sons who attended the University of Colorado consider it one of their favorite restaurants on Pearl Street. When they return to Boulder, they try to make a stop.
