went to this recommended restaurant with our children after a movie --arrived at 8 15pm and was told by the owner that they close at 9pm!!!when we brought the current time to her attention , she grudgingly condescended to let us know that a LIMITED menu was available if we wanted to eat there. REALLY!! a self professed "fine dining"... More

This is a tiny little restaurant in a strip mall. It is called French-Korean, but i'm not sure that's the right cuisine. The menu changes seasonally, but i think this food has a bit of a southern touch (such as Shrimp and Grits) The current menu has more of a Korean flair to it. Either way, the food was great....

Had never tried Korean food before, and living nearby KoMo KoMo we've often said we have to try that place. Well, last night we did...and thoroughly enjoyed it. First impression walking in and seeing the decor was, this is a nice place...not formal, but relaxing and casual. Service was great, by the congenial owner, El. Not knowing what to order,... More

My family enjoyed an outstanding meal at Komo Komo. It was a rainy Sunday evening but the meal shined brightly. Both my kids had the Korean Stone Rice Bowl which they enjoyed immensely. I had the Dumpling Noodle Soup with seafood. It was excellent with a nice amount of heat. My wife had the Salmon which was also very good.... More

Komo Komo- Cary - Is a WINNER!!!! With an Asian wife, we tend to eat at Asian restaurants often. While we eat out often, it is a nice surprise to find a quality asian restaurant. We have eaten at Asian restaurants throughout the U.S., D.C., NYC, Northern Virginia, LA and obviously Korean, and we wouldn't go back to most, but... More

I have been to this restaurant for lunch and dinner many times. Every time the food is a perfection. Sizes seem small but once you start eating you realize the portion is just the right amount of food. Love how the restaurant changes atmosphere from casual lunch to sophisticated dinner. I had avoided the restaurant not knowing what French Korean... More

KoMo KoMo is something I'd expect to find in New York, or San Fran, or L.A.... but not in Cary, NC! This chef is a culinary master and combines flavors together that echo his quality education and top-notch experience. I don't know why this exists in Cary, but I am SO glad it does...

This is a great place to have excellent and creative Korean-French cuisine. Chef Jae is inventive, and the food was fresh and tasted wonderful. I particularly liked the sweet potato soup with caramelized apples, with basil oil drizzled across the top. That and a bowl of rice makes a great lunch. And the lemongrass crème brulée was delightful. You would... More

Enjoyed lunch here last week. My friend and I shared our food and each was full of flavor. The creme brlee was out of this world. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy the flavors of the Orient.

My wife and I have been enjoying the cuisine/art prepared by Chef Jae just about since the restaurant opened. The unassuming storefront located in a strip mall belies the amazing food that is to be found within. The attention to detail when it comes to pairing flavors and combining sauces within the entrees is simply unrivaled, not only in Cary,... More
