We especially enjoyed the Crispy Brussel Sprouts, a light but delicious dish for starters. Drink was good and the sushi was fresh. I will definitely be returning.

We found the service friendly, the food excellent and the ambiance wonderful. We'll definitely go here again. It is pricey thougth.

The sushi here was delicious. However, the menus were so confusing - they gave us four different ones - which is why I’m only giving a 4 out of 5 rating. The hostess explained it once, then came back and answered some more questions. We’re...More

The food is exceptional, staff is usually good. I went a couple times and came out smelling like the fryer / grill. The Green Tea Creme Brulee was a treat!

The sushi is great. Sitting at the sushi bar was fun. The sushi chefs will make you something special based on what kind of fish you like. The restaurant is not big -- gives it a very close homey feel.

It was so nice to drink decent tea with my sushi platter on Pearl Street. The food was also fresh and yummy. My miso soup was not as hot as I like, but aside from that, no complaints. I shall return.

While the vib is good and the bar is great, the food is average and vastly overpriced. Service at the bar is great, while average at the tables. Went to Mizu in Denver two days later and had a far better dinner for less.

Nice to have top class Sushi in Boulder. Food was excellent. Candidly too many choices for rolls...they seem to run together and taste the same if you order more than three...which we did. Service was friendly, but slow. Servers seemed to take turns eating at...More

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.
