    This is our favorite restaurant by far. The sushi chefs are so thoughtful and caring with their quality and presentation. The Crunchie roll is amazing and the chilled soba noodle dish is ridiculously good. Definitely definitely definitely go try this place, you’ll fall in love

    Spent $227 for 4 people and I'm not complaining about how much it cost because it was relatively cheap but the quality of food and service was very disappointing. Tried a lot of different dishes. Udon was way too sweet. The special rolls were awful and we had to cancel one of the dishes because the waiter forgot to place the order. The best thing was the sashimi, but even that was just ok. I guess my expectation was too high, as I was expecting something that was more authentic.

    Food was good. We liked the fact that they didn’t make their sushi mostly rice. Very pleasant surprise. The Citron sushi was really good. The Serrano pepper on it didn’t over power the roll as many do. Overall we really enjoyed dinner here. Will definitely visit again.

    we've had a variety of items at Kombu Sushi in the past and today had mixed tempura, sunomono, gyoza vegetable dumplings. we had a variety of rolls, unagi, blue crab and a traditional california roll. the food was excellent but we did not care for the eggplant. we would go back. Service was attentive and helpful in selection for us.

    Sushi wasn’t up to par, and in fact some things like the Unagi and the Tobiko weren’t anything I’d call “fresh”. That said, the staff was very friendly, service was good, and the sake “Tokyo Mule” cocktail was very good.

    We went for my husband’s birthday & we loved it. We were running late & they held our table for 30 min. The staff were super friendly & attentive. Sushi & all items we ordered were fresh & delicious & came out fast. We had the Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, blue crab Cali roll, Cajun roll, jalapeño yellow tail, spicy tuna crispy rice & shrimp tempura & everything was excellent! They sang happy birthday to my husband & gave a complimentary ice cream! We will definitely be returning.

    I wanted to like this dining experience, but it really disappointed me. What stood out was the quality of food was terrible; I ordered a tasting menu sushi special, so I had a number of dishes from the kitchen to try. The ginger mushroom soup held a concentrated taste that unpleasantly stung my mouth. The spicy tuna starter was ok, however, the nigiri chef choice pieces was brought to me without wasabi, ginger, or soy sauce. The quality of fish was mediocre. Most notable was the final Salmon Roll topped with onion; the sushi was warm, slimy and tasted old. It was depressed sushi roll. For service, the team was friendly, but there were missed steps (did not bring condiments or utensils a couple of times, etc.) and I was brought an alcoholic drink when I asked for non-alcoholic. I will not be back.
