The food that they serve in here is certainly one of the best around the area. I could go back in here twice a week and still get the same quality of service, I just love the consistency in here.

Th sushi was pretty good, but I felt like I paid more for the atmosphere than for the sushi. I did love the orgasm roll, but there wasn't really anything else that caught my attention. Maybe I just ordered the wrong things. The staff was nice and my waitress did a great job. I did love the miso soup. They have a good sushi happy hour during the summer on the hill location

I love Hapa Sushi! Really good quality and excellent selection. The restaurant is pretty small so if you have a big group call ahead. But I would have to recommend it as the best place for 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

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!

I really enjoy Hapa Sushi. They consistently provide delicious tasting sushi in a city that isn't close to the ocean at all! I really like their Rainbow Roll as well as their sashimi options. Hapa isn't the best sushi I've ever had, but it's the best in Boulder.

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.

Cons: inconsistant quality per visit, boring rolls

This place has a great selection of sushi. Try the Multiple O rolls and the spiced edaname (really hot!). The California roll is also very good and a bit more tame. This restaurant is popular and can get very crowded on the week-ends!

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.

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.

My three friends and I were extremely disappointed FIRST TIME customers. We arrived on Friday around 8:30pm and were informed of an hour waiting list. We put on our name down and were invited to wait at the bar in the back of the restaurant. Well, AN HOUR AND A HALF later, not only were we still were not seated, but we saw 3 parties of four (who arrived after we did) seated before us. It was unbelievably unacceptable. As we walked out the door, we were told we had to wait for a table and when we responded how long we had been waiting, the waitstaff simply brushed us off. There was no apology or no offers for a discount meal, the only thing we received during our wait was a free round of drinks... as if that would compensate!

Our night was HORRIBLE!! We were 4th on the list with an hour wait. After an hour and a half wait, we finally walked out. Everyone (including people arriving after us) had been sat before us. We were the last group in the bar! The last straw was when the hostest sat 3 ladies (who arrived after us) in a table that sat 4, and had a purse taking up the 4th chair. Not a good night!!!!! Then the hostest's looked at us like she couldn't believe we were leaving Hapa's. You got to be kidding me???? Won't ever return!!!!

We had excellent service, even when the place got busy. Salad was NOT limp but very tasty. All rolls & sashimi were superb & FRESH!! By far, one of the best! Save room for dessert: Banana Bread Pudding.

For the best in Boulder try Sushi Zanmai, Sushi Tora or Japango.

Hapa has awesome food for a good price. It's more casual than some other sushi places in town but still has very good food. Their orgasm rolls are a big favorite (despite their racy names) and the simpler rolls, like the Philadelphia roll, are really tasty as well. There is both indoor and outdoor seating and a sushi bar. The atmosphere is very stylish but still relaxed. Their food is always fresh and inventive so definitely give it a try.

This place is always hopping and with good reason! Not only is it GREAT for fresh sushi, the people watching is incredible, both inside and out. The servers are funky and hip, as well as great at their jobs. The hosts are very polite as well. I always have a great time at this place, although I do wish they'd get a bigger dining area.

Hapa is trendier and better people watching than sushi den, plus the wait staff is less rude! By the time I had dinner, I had downed a big ol box of delicious saki and just remeber the rolls were superb.

What a slick place to eat sushi. I was pleased with the service and with the wonderful key lime martinis. The sushi was good, but I have had much better, at a much lower price. I would recommend it for the cool ambience.

Hapa is most likely one of the hippest restaurants in Boulder. The crowd was mostly funky, college-aged people and I felt out-of-place in my bulky wool sweater and jeans, but I have to go again since it was hands down the best sushi in Boulder. Their Hapa beer was tasty, too. (I'll remember to dress to fit the crowd next time.)
