The sushi was wonderful -- poke tartar and house special roll particularly so. We went there twice. The waiter was helpful and knowledgeable and the wines were very nice.

My wife and I had dinner hear last night. The only reason I'm giving this a 3 is because of the limited menu. I guess we should have reviewed their menu first. It is mostly Sushi dishes. My wife and I are more meat and potatoes. The entrees we did have were okay, nothing special. The waitress was very friendly... More

Great hotel restaurant, very popular, hence the wait even though you have a reservation. Made to wait which took away the excitement but once seated and got to taste the yummy food my disposition was better.

We're not roll people so we sat in front of the Japanese chef and ordered sashimi and nigiri until we were absolutely stuffed. The meal was such a hit that we went again before leaving Maui and the meal was just as good! If you go and you want to try cold sake-can't go wrong with Kubota.

We had a variety of sushi rolls and some other fish main dishes. The cocktail was rather disappointing as I expect lychee tini would have some lychee but it's only the syrup. Didn't meet expectation especially being in Hawaii.

Normally we shy away from restaurants in hotels, Japengo is a notable exception. EVERYTHING on the menu we had was outstanding, including the sushi rolls they are known for :-) Great sunset view, great ambience- loved it!

This bar/restaurant is located in the Hyatt Regency on Ka'anapali Beach. The hotel is very cool as is this restaurant. The menu is full of fish based super tasty treats. Not cheap. We ate 3 appies (all good sized though) and a bottle of red (about $60) and the bill was $150. still, we enjoyed and were happy as clams... More

The restaurant is very good. Service was excellent. The size of the rolls is very good. The sashimi was amazing. Chefs selection was amazing. We also order several kinds of sakes. The selection is very good. Overall price is not cheap but is in accordance with the service and quality of food.
