    Incredibly good sushi, at an incredibly good price… Every bit as good as Uchi. The second I stepped through the door I was amazed at how good it smelled, and the food lived up to that expectation.

    The Teishoku lunch specials are one of the best deals going: a bowl of savory clear noodle soup, a farm-fresh salad, soft steamed rice, homemade Japanese pickles, and an entrée all for $8-$12. Read more

    Excellent sushi. The salmon koma is amazing. And definitely order the kome with honey wasabi sauce. And the mackerel nigiri. And well, everything else!

    Not surprised there was a line waiting forming for their happy hour midweek. Great selection of Japanese classics plus amazing quality. Loved the takoyaki, ikura nigiri and housemade gyoza.

    Love their happy hour deal. They generously over pour their glasses to fill 2 cups for $5. Also worth leaving room for their red bean waffle with green ice cream.

    I loved the place. Great products and dishes. Nice quality price menu. The service was awesome. Summer time roll is a sure deal. Draft Asashi beer is fun, but maybe is not worth it for beer lovers.

    The Hamachi Kama is the best item on the menu. And that’s saying a lot because everything here is delicious. The second best are the homemade gyoza. High quality ingredients. service is also good.

    Really quality sushi -- the real stuff, not sauce-laden BOGO rolls -- and great service that's kid-friendly to boot. I hear the ramen is good too but the sushi is so good I've never tried it.

    Comé to Komé for their Ika-yaki, a whole grilled squid with grated ginger. To wash it down, pick from their selection of Japanese beer & rice liquor like Texas Sake Co's Whooping Crane. Read more

    Go for the Hiyashi Chuka if you want a different perspective on ramen; the cold noodles certainly have a unique flavour and former texture; yum! :3

    The Tuna Poke appetizer is a MUST. GET. Full stop. Love their miso soup. Sashimi is always super fresh and tender. I also love the spicy scallop nigiri.

    Delicious sushi. Love the clear soup and tempura. Sushi lunch special with the Austin roll was great! A must if you're craving sushi in Austin.

    Unassuming exterior, fairly authentic Japanese restaurant vibe inside. Had a tasty bowl on spicy ramen and sushi. The fish was fresh and tasty. Waitress was helpful too.

    A great line up of sushi plus some seriously good waffle fries as an app will make for a well spent evening. Top it off with an Asahi black

    Komé's ramen will change your life--though you can only find it at lunchtime--and plan to arrive early for a dinner spot, since the restaurant fills up. [Eater 38 Member]

    This place is extremely authentic in taste and presentation! The Katsu Don is closest to the real deal in Japan. Until Komé, I haven't had an experience like this since the summer of 2005. $$

    Great #vegan options for a sushi place. Avocado Mango Roll and the Kome Salad are my favorites.

    This is the best sushi in Austin if you're not going fancy and dropping big $$$. Dinner is izakaya-style. Get the takoyaki.

    Absolutely LOVE the hokkai don! The salmon and ikura are so tasty! The salmon belly sashimi is also really nice.

    The grilled squid is awesome! The whole Aji (mackerel) sashimi is totally worth it if you dare eat the entire thing. The head is the best part.

    Kome Fries are excellent as an appetizer! Eel sushi is also quite good.

    Tonkotsu ramen. Broth-wise, yes this is the best one you can get in Austin. But they can do it better. Noodles are way overcooked and the pork is too dry for ramen. But give them point for trying.

    I loved their sweet and sour meatballs and their sushi rolls. Talk about amazing at a reasonable price.

    This place can get pretty busy so show up early. And you'll need your whole party to be seated.

    Uchi and Uchiko get all the raves, but Komé is a more traditional sushi joint and definitely deserves its fair share of love.

    Fat Samuari is no joke! Fresh, tasty and filling. Actually, everything here was delicious and made with the freshest ingredients.

    Ika Yaki (grilled squid) was delicious! Sushi was mediocre. Great service :)

    The sushi is fantastic but I must say, their okonomiyaki is most excellent!

    Lots of nice things to say about this place: great food, atmosphere & price. But I'd avoid the seaweed salad, leaves much to be desired.

    If you are used to Ramen found at Ippudo or Totto in NYC you will be very disappointed. But if you are used to $0.32 ramen packs then you will have reached the next level with this ramen.
