Best sushi in Boulder! – I go to Hapa all of the time when I want sushi in Boulder. They have a really good selection of sushi and it is all really good quality! It isn't ridiculously expensive either, like most places in Boulder. Hapa is always really busy but you don't have to wait long for a table. Plus sitting on their patio and watching people stroll by on Pearl is always a fun experience!! Love it!
Hapa is a joke! – I went into Hapa on a saturday night with my wife and we were sat near the fronthost stand. There was a short man with glasses arguing with an woman who i am guessing was his wife. I asked our server who he was and he said that the man was Mark, the owner of hape. I was shocked! I just heard this guy drop 2 f-bombs and a few other curse words while arguing over a table time with this woman! I was a good 12 feet away and heard it all. You could tell the hosts were a little uneasy standing next to them. I will NEVER go back to this establishment again. If the owner is that unprofessional in person, than I feel sorry for his staff. I am a chef in Denver and for an owner to act like that in ear shot of guests is ridiculous. Maybe this Mark guy should not be in his own restaraunts!
Best sushi resturaunt of my life – Great atmosphire, great people, great food
Uninspiring rolls, tries to be hip. – OK for a quick lunch but if you're looking for a special meal, there are much better sushi restaurants in Boulder. All three of the rolls were just variations on the same theme, the crab (krab) was bland, and the unagi was disappointingly dry. I give restaurant 3 stars because the teriyaki bowl my husband had was very nicely prepared and tasty.
Worse than boxed sushi at the grocery store!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Wow if this is what Boulder thinks is good sushi then I should defiantly open a sushi joint here (and I'm white!). This was by far the worst sushi i have ever had, even worse than the take out stuff from whole foods! Our sushi was full of sinew, short on rice and falling apart when we picked it up. Taste was nothing special either, in fact some of the vegetarian rolls are just plain gross. For 50 bucks for lunch, which was 4 cheap rolls, miso soup, edamame and a sopporo i will never be back. such a rip off, and i agree it is not real sushi, really just dopey college kids trying to roll sushi. Zanmai and Toro are way better bets and are similarly priced.
Great Sushi – What a find! I stopped by while walking down Pearl St. and am happy that I did. Casual environment and great sushi!
Sushi sent from heaven! – Hapa is absolutely the best! I get these really intense cravings for their Multiple O rolls sometimes; they are so amazing. Hapa on Pearl has a little bit more sophisticated vibe than Hapa on the Hill, which is usually full of Greek students. Their spiced edamame is out of this world-it will really put you on fire. This is the best sushi place in Boulder, hands down.
awesome sushi – love love love love it!
the ambience is awesome and i've never had a grumpy waiter. the food is absolutely delicious!
whenever im down my boyfriend always takes me here.... he knows exactly how to pick me up!
Great food! – Loved the sushi, the service was great. A little loud for my taste, but that was because they were extremely busy!
best sushi ever – The staff is friendly up beat and helpful, and the food is amazing! It can be very inexpensive or you can go all out and get yourself a wonderful feast. The california rolls and terriaki soy beans are HIGHLY recommended!
