“More Koma please”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This please has the best sushi around, I come here at least twice a month. The fish is so fresh, and the presentation is always great. Their spicy scallop roll is to die for. Service is always friendly and fast. It is a small place so there is not too much seating for large parties or families. Parking may also be a problem since it is shared with Oasis next door.

“Nothing to Write Home About”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012

Tonight, I stopped by Koma Sushi at the recommendation of a colleague. I got there around 6:45 and besides me, there were a couple and a little girl sitting at a table. I sat at the sushi bar.

First I ordered some Albacore sushi. Two pieces arrived quickly but I noticed that there was an abumdance of rice under the Albacore. So much so, that I removed half of it before I ate it. Next, I order a Salmon cut roll and spicy Tuna cut roll. From one extreme to another as neither cut roll have quite enough rice and a very small piece of fish. They should call the "skinny rolls." The flavors were ok but a normal person would have to hzc 5 or 6 rolls to feel satisfied.

The prices were ok, as was the service. I still haven't figured out why it received very good ratings.

“Fish is fresh...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2012

The best thing about this sushi restaurant, besides fresh fish, is the fact that you can order one piece of sushi instead of always having to order two. The wait staff is also very friendly.

“Great sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2011

Stopped by here for dinner on the recommendation of front desk staff at the Stanford Park Hotel and was not disappointed. Regular menu items and the daily specials were all great, and reasonably priced. Would come back again the next time I am in Menlo Park.
