I have never enjoyed sushi and thought this experience was superb. I am now a sushi fan, at least at Japengo. The staff made this dining experience really fun, too.

We had a fantastic time at Japengo. We had a wonderful table overlooking the Pacific Ocean and swaying Coconut Palm trees. Our server was great and every single item we ordered was absolutely delicious. We have since returned to Japengo many times. We are planning our 15th trip to Maui in April and I am so looking forward to eating here again!

We stumbled upon this restaurant several years ago when looking for sushi in the Lahaina area and have returned here every year on our visit to Maui. The food is delicious and it has one of the most beautiful sunset views on the island.

My Wife and I have been to Maui annually for the past 4 years and are at the Hyatt for 5-6 nights each time. We have usually hit Japengo twice per trip as we like it so much and this year was no exception. The sushi is amazing, and the other dishes that I have tried are all just as good. Service has always been exemplary, and the views the restaurant enjoys are breathtaking. I would recommend that anyone go here for a meal.

First, thank you to Jimmy (the host), and Bobby (the amazing server) for two of the best meals we have ever had at a restaurant. This place has unreal views, on a rock with fountains and tiki torches. Overlooks the sunset (we did this both times). GREAT food- we have had several things, (sushi, salads, fish, stir drys). The prie fix is a great value. I loved how easy going and not trying to be something they are not. What sets the place apart- is everything is good. The food is good. Views are perfect. Facility is amazing. Drinks are great. The employees are soooooo cool. We had friends arrive late to dinner, and had already made a 4 person reservation. They were not there to meet us in time to eat, but were able to come at the tail end. We had already taken a table for two, and without hesitation, Bobby grabbed us two extra chairs so we could be together and enjoy our time. Most places would never dream of doing something like this. Both times on this trip we were amazed at it all. You will be amazed, and there is now two must dos on every trip we take to Maui (the other is Kimos at sunset with Hula Pie).
