Have experienced this wonderful restaurant many times including the pre-opening event back in 2011. Beautiful setting, fantastic service, and the food is always outstanding.

We ate here last year and loved it, but was very disappointed this time. The fried rice was sticky, with clumps and really had little flavor. I heard the waitress tell the people at next table that you could get a half order of the fried rice, after we each got a huge bowl. No one questioned why I barely... More

Absolutely blown away about this place. GREAT views outside. Also covered dining. You'll also discover that the employees have been here forever. Some as long as 36 years. Our waitress, Carrie, had been with Japengo for 20 years! Says a lot about the restaurant... Service was impeccable. Fast, efficient and knowledgeable about menu items. Food was extremely well presented with... More

This restaurant has excellent sushi across the board. And there is good Asian food, e.g. We had cooked Asparagus with a spicy sweet sauce. Another dish with Chinese cabbage. Good atmosphere. We enjoyed the terrace.

Stopped in without Reservation for dinner, and they said they didn't have something for another 2 hours. They had a lot of happy people there. Then as we turned to go the director said wait a moment and he was able to seat us immediately and a great table. And a great meal. One of the best in the week.... More

Just that. Could barely understand the menu, not nearly a great selection. Expected more. But the chow fun was TO DIE FOR!

My wife and I were looking for somewhere close to the Westin to eat, and we wanted an island experience with fresh seafood. I found this on Tripadvisor actually, so we booked an online reservation with Opentable! It was not a far walk from the Westin, and the ambience was super cool. The view was amazing. Do not go here... More

We were supposed to be a party of 8 but when people heard about where we were going the party changed to 15. The restaurant accommodated us immediately and then the food started arriving! This is a dining experience, everything ordered looked like you shouldn't actually eat it, the presentation was magnificent! And then the flavours do the look justice.... More

We love eating at this place for 2 simple reasons. The food is always great, with a large variety of menu choices beyond sushi. The open atmosphere includes great views of the Hyatt Property and the ocean. We also love Bobby, who is our favorite waiter.

Japengo is a great place! Great food, wonderful atmosphere,and attentive servers. Our last meal on Maui, and we could not have picked a better place. With a view of the ocean, it get busy at sunset, so we opted for a little after. The waiter seemed genuinely happy to serve us, and explained the menu very well. My wife had... More
