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....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!

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.
