    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

    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.

    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

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

    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]

    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.

    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. $$

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    If you pay in cash, they round down on your change. I'm going to let them have it, and I am unlikely to return. This is in very poor taste. Better udon at Daito on the Drag anyway.
