Japango has the best lunch specials on Pearl Street. I love to pop downtown for the Salmon Bento Box during lunch.

On a nice evening sit outside and enjoy the bustle of Pearl Street. We had the Beef Tataki, Seared Tuna Tempura, Oshinko (Japanese pickles,) Magic Mushrooms, Spicy Seafood Udon, and Dragon Kiss Roll. Maybe the singing-stomping trumpeter will entertain you while you dine.

My husband and I went on a Saturday night. It was good that we had a reservation because it was completely full. Our waiter was very good and our food was excellent. We had sashimi three types, miso soup, agadeshi tofu, seaweed salad and two specialty rolls. The only thing not delicious was tuna and salmon sashimi (they were ok,... More

You MUST make a reservation as this place is always busy. We went on a Monday & Tuesday & both nights were full. We made a reservation for Monday but just decided to drop in on Tuesday. We were luckily able to get seats at the bar for dinner. Which was worth it because our bartender was so personable &... More

I wan't wowed but like the sushi and the service was friendly and efficient. I took a friend there whose birthday I was celebrating. I guess making a note of it in the reservation and then mentioning it to the server did not create a reaction. I would have loved it if, like many other places in Boulder, there was... More

Pretty cool place with very good sushi -- better than I expected, really. They were very accommodating to our group, even though we're were a large family with small children. The place has a cool vibe to it. Wonderfully convenient if you're hanging out on Pearl Street Mall. Prices are pretty good, given quality of the sushi. Would definitely return.

Unique rolls and combinations. The cocktails are super too. Try one of their special rolls you won't be disappointed. My son especially loves to see the jelly fish tank.

Had a good sushi experience here with my family, especially good rolls and nigiri, but the shrimp shumai was a real surprise, obviously hand made with fresh ingredients. It's not cheap, but nothing in Boulder is! Nice cocktail selection! And the service was exceptional; attentive, knowledgeable and friendly.

I'd enjoyed the sushi once on an earlier visit, when I sat @the bar & chatted w the owner & top chef. On a return visit, on Friday night post-Thanksgiving, the experience was terrible. Our sushi orders got lost & we waited over an hour, while our companion enjoyed her teriyaki chicken. The entire time, nobody cleared her empty dish,... 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.
