This restaurant is in the Hyatt Regency Maui. From the menu, I can say that they specialize in the many varieties of sushi. However, for those would might prefer an entrée, the choices are limited. This is a Japanese restaurant, but based on my experience in Japan, they offered few choices and many of the popular Japanese entrees are not offered. I did have the cashew crusted chicken, and if was very tasty, The portion is quite large that two people could actually share it. It is expensive, but within range for a good Maui restaurant.

4 of us dined inside at this great restaurant last night. No probs booking, great attentive and knowledgeable service and sensational food. We had the house poke which was delicious, sensational sushi, the chefs special roll, the calamari and spare ribs.
We had some local beer, their classic Mai Tai which combined nicely with the food. Their repeated awards of best sushi in the Pacific are justified. Price very reasonable.

Absolutely delicious, be careful not to order too much as the sushi rolls are huge, just absolutely one of the best dinners I've had here.

First time I’ve been to a sushi restaurant and I have to say it was delicious. They also do other dishes,not just sushi.
We ordered several dishes and shared so we could all experience and taste the different flavours, the fresh tuna was my absolute favourite.
Very relaxed atmosphere and staff were all friendly and helpful, it was very busy when we arrived and luckily we had booked we saw lotus of people being turned away, so book if you dont want to be turned away!

Ok! so my partner and I went back to Maui again. We love going there when we both need a break from work. Our jobs are pretty intense and love a quick getaway. We dine at Japengo every single time when we are in Maui. And I hate to review a place twice or so but I just want to give a shout out to Desiree.. (I think that’s her name, I apologize if it’s not) but we were there a month ago and we came back recently and she recognized us and she was always a really pleasant waitress to have. Super nice and really took care of us. And the food at Japengo is always delicious! We can’t ever go wrong here! Thank you!
