I've been here over 10 times at least (always for dinner), first when I was a Student at Stanford, due to its proximity, and then while coming over to the Bay Area on business. It's clearly a personal favorite. It's a small place and can get quite crowded hence it is best to make a reservation. The staff is friendly... More

It is a small place, which can be quite crowded in the weekend, but it is worth it. Good quality sushi with an authentic touch, quick service and not extremely expensive. Perfect for small groups. Will definitely return

You know when you first move to a new town and all you want to know is where's the go-to sushi restaurant? THIS is that restaurant! The service is so friendly, polite, and attentive. The sushi is delicious, and most importantly, it's very reasonably priced. I highly recommend the shrimp tempura roll.

Great local sushi restaurant. We live nearby and often walk over as do some of our neighbors. The quality is good and the prices reasonable though not cheap. It is small with relatively few tables so go either early or late to snag one without waiting.

Staying at the Stanford Park Hotel this is one of only a couple establishments you can walk to. It is only a couple blocks and felt safe. Koma had a nice selection of sushi and it was all well prepared. There were plenty of servers and they were all attentive. The internal ambiance was not extraordinary in any way -... More

Fresh Sushi, fresh and well presented. Other dishes are simple and well prepared. We love the eggplant tofu. You can see into the kitchen and watch the food being prepared. Restaurant gets busy early evening, and parking is difficult - spaces behind the building, otherwise your best option is to park on El Camino Real. It is a casual and... More

We were visiting Stanford University and Mall and decided to try this neighborhood sushi restaurant. First of all, the quality of the sushi and sashimi is very good. Very fresh. The place is on the small side and was fully packed on the night we walked in. The service was slow, but I think they did not expect a couple... More

Unbelievable sushi. Nice selection of premium cold sakes. Small place, so gets crowded quickly and service slips. Cant really go wrong at the sushi bar. Tuna, fluke and yellowtail are standouts. Great tempura roles too and a nice miso soup.
