Went here on a Wednesday for lunch and could have sat outside on the patio if it were just a tad bit warmer; it's always a plus to be able to be eating out on Pearl Street. I had the Poke Don Hapa Bowl with ahi tuna - which is an amazing value AND tasty! I had plenty of ahi... More

The sushi is always exceptional. I don't often like cooked sushi but even that is good here! We also order for lunch delivery.

Hadn't had sushi in years and decided to dine differently for hubby's very big b-day. There were 4 of us tonight(Thursday) for a 5:45 PM reservation and we were seated immediately. Jeanette was our attentive server and son and daughter did the ordering. We had an array of tastes: seasoned edame,pork wrap,calamari,Hapa roll,Caterpillar roll,spider roll. dragon roll and shisho -honi.... More

We came in on a Friday afternoon / early evening and were looking forward to good sushi in Boulder. While there was nothing actually BAD about our experience we came away feeling a bit disappointed - the whole experience was just mediocre. It was a super cold evening and we were seated next to a window (no big deal), but... More

Hapa sushi Boulder CO I love this place and have been coming here for years—the sexy names for their original sushi dishes are a delight. I have to ask for “a multiple orgasm please.” The ambiance is young, dynamic, family friendly and sophisticated. Great music. Staff are sweet and helpful; sometimes burdened with crowds and waitlists at this most popular... More

I wish I would have taken a photo of my sashimi lunch that I ordered because the presentation was beautiful, but it was even tastier than it looked so down it went! Served with miso soup (a tad salty for my palate) and a choice of a good size helping of rice, it was a good value for 9 pieces... More

One of my favorite sushi restaurants! I have been to all of the Denver metro locations and especially like the Boulder location! Always treated wonderfully by the hostess and server. I ordered the Hapa Salad, miso soup and a salmon and avocado roll- all delicious as always! Great food, great service at a great location on beautiful Pearl street in... More

OH my GOODNESS! THE BEST SUSHI I have ever eaten! Hands down! We ordered a multiple orgasm roll (yes, that's the name) -- which is quite aptly named, avocado roll (not as good), caterpillar roll, spider roll & side of steamed edamame in garlic.... ALL was yum, yum. Dessert was split & just as yum - mochi ice cream. Everything,... More

This is one of my favorite restaurant in Boulder. A lot of their sushi rolls are unconventional, but super delicious. Worth a visit, especially during their happy hour!

Got the tuna nachos and crispy ahi tuna appetizers and was pleasantly surprised by both. Also tried the tuna poke which was good as well.

The name Hapa is derived from the Hawaiian term that describes a harmonious blend of Asian and American cultures. Like our name, our food reflects this dynamic combination. The menu is based on traditional Japanese cooking fundamentals which are then amplified, muted, or mixed with influences from many different styles of cooking until they are something completely new: they're Hapa. We have stretched the boundaries of creativity to develop dishes that defy all the rules while holding true to our roots. We hope that you will find our menu innovative, uninhibited, and distinctly fun! Incomplete parties will not be sat until complete.
