Sushi
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.

    I love hapa! I have a peanut, treenut, and sesame allergy and they are very accommodating. I’ve never found a place I feel comfortable and safe eating sushi. Not only do they have a helpful staff, but it also tastes amazing! I love the outdoor seating and being in the middle of Pearl street. The atomosphere and overall appeal keeps me coming back every week!

    Hapa Sushi Grill & Sake Bar - Pearl St. BoulderResponded todayThank you, Makenna! Dietary restrictions hit home for us so we try to be as accommodating as we possibly can :) We look forward to seeing you again next week!

    We have been going to Hapa for years but the value vs the food is no longer there. Last night was $160 plus tip = close to $200 and it’s just not sustainable for a week night dinner, family of 4. Also had serious side effects from the salad dressing - maybe the sesame oil in it??

    The food was amazing! My husband loved the sushi and the chicken teriyaki was cooked perfectly. We loved it except for the space. We were placed in a table in the center of the narrow room, with people walking around us on two sides. I couldn’t put my elbow slightly out to cut my chicken without bumping someone. A staff member taking someone’s order at the next table (maybe a foot away from us) bumped into my seated husband while we were eating. It was a rather hectic, frantic environment, not great for the romantic date night it was supposed to be. If you’re eating inside, request to be seated at the counter or in the back.

    Hapa Sushi Grill & Sake Bar - Pearl St. BoulderResponded on August 9, 2022Hi Angela, we are happy to hear you enjoyed the food! We are sorry for our tight seating. We're currently working on something so fix this :)

    We had an excellent meal (I ate too much, but I usually do when I eat sushi), and we particularly enjoyed sitting outside on the Mall. We arrived a little early, but it wasn't an issue. The hostess was able to seat us right away. And the service was great. I liked the sake the wait person recommended. I probably wouldn't have picked it without her help, and it was delicious.

    It had been several years since my husband and I had been to Hapa, but we will be going back! The menu has traditional sushi options and many interesting options, including vegan rolls. The vegan Dragon Roll, with silky eggplant on top, was beyond compare. The sushi was fresh and the amount of fish was substantial. The ambiance outside on Peale Street is even better than before thanks to the expansion of seating that occurred due to COVID. Our server Cody was professional, prompt, and helpful. Pretty much a perfect date nite!

    Hapa Sushi Grill & Sake Bar - Pearl St. BoulderResponded on June 20, 2022Thank you, Betty! So happy to hear you chose Hapa to have a date night! We will let Cody know about the nice shout out and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

    Yet another place that can't decide if they're a restaurant or a club. You can't really beat the quality and value during happy hour though. I still recommend this place but give warning that it's very loud.

    Ate outside in the center of the mall. Very nice. Was afraid the sun would be shining in my eyes but the shading was adequate. Had gyoza, dragon tool, firecracker roll and pacific island roll all were great. We put them in the middle of the table and shared between 3 people. Also had various sakes. They were out of most of them so we took the waiters suggestions and loved them all. Great evening! Thanks!
