“Just average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2012

The ambience is beautiful, the food is just ok. It's more expensive than your average sushi place without being anything better or unique. I was disappointed, especially for what I paid.

“Good and fresh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

Probably the first sushi restaurant in Jersey City, Komegashi goes way back. They are always busy so the fish has great turnover and is always fresh. Portion are nice in size. Authentic sushi spot, no frills.

“A great value - with local delivery!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

The Komegashi menu offers a good mix of fusion-type sushi, local flavors, and a vareity of options for the interested customer: dine in, carry out, or even delivery to local hotels. I have been fortunate enough to visit both Komegashi locations in Jersey City, and in both I found a comfortable, warm, clean, if slightly small environment where myself and my colleagues could have a delicious dinner.

Delivery times can be a bit long to hotels that are close to the water or further down Washington, away from the primary Komegashi locations.

The food, on the other hand, even when delivered, is of high quality, and offers a selection of local creation based on some contests that have been run to add new menu items. Over the course of my visits to the restaurants, I have also found that the food remains fairly consistent, with only one mediocre experience, and all others well to the good.

The menu of offerings provides a wide variety of choices, including a small but adequate selection of non-sushi items and appetizers.

Its hard to visit the Jersey City area on business and not stop back by Komegashi for good sushi, at a fair value, that can be delivered to my hotel room if that is my desire.

“Good Fish, real Shiso leaves, Sushi rice was well prepared,”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

This was my first time to Komegashi and I will return again. I had an appetizer of charbroiled squid that was excellent. The Miso soup was tasty. My wife had a salad that was well prepared and had a nice ginger dressing. I choose Chirashi which is always a good measure of a Sushi Restaurant. It was excellent with nice fish choices by the chef. The Tamago was also well prepared as well. They use real Shiso leaves which should be a must, plastic on my plate with fish is a weakness. They had a good selection of Sakes and I enjoyed one with the meal. The staff was good and made proper trips to our table.
