Don't know why I haven't enjoyed japengo before now. Great food, service and atmosphere. I frequent sushi and Japanese restaurants bake home in Vancouver BC Canada and assure you that japengo parallels some of the higher end fare I'm accustomed to. It's also refreshing to see that the kids menu has proper food. Too often the kids menu doesn't reflect the restaurants theme. Most restaurants cater to the 'cheeseburger and fry' generation of spoiled merican' kids. I will return for more and I will spread the word about the calibre of food and service I enjoyed.

This restaurant at the Hyatt was very quiet on a Monday night and the outdoor tables were attractive and comfortable. The food was good, although the ahi was not the quality we expect on Maui.

The Swan restaurant at the Hyatt was closed for renovations so we ate here instead. The food was very good here and I like how they have half portions so you can try small plates of different dishes.

I tend to avoid restaurants attached to hotels -- but we stayed at the Hyatt and decided to try Japengo. A pleasant surprise. The food was delicious -- great sushi and wonderful steaks -- service was outstanding -- and the atmosphere was lovely. One of our best dining experiences in Maui.

We tried the two expensive sushi rolls...they were both excellent. Back home these rolls would be $10 but here they are $20-$24. Despite being double the price it was fresh and tasty! They come as 8 big pieces per roll. Nice pit stop for sushi!
