    We love the Kombu in Silverlake and this location meets or exceeds everything we love about their original location. Love the ambience and decor in DTLA, would def recommend even with Little Tokyo right around the corner :)

    I wanted to like this dining experience, but it really disappointed me. What stood out was the quality of food was terrible; I ordered a tasting menu sushi special, so I had a number of dishes from the kitchen to try. The ginger mushroom soup held a concentrated taste that unpleasantly stung my mouth. The spicy tuna starter was ok, however, the nigiri chef choice pieces was brought to me without wasabi, ginger, or soy sauce. The quality of fish was mediocre. Most notable was the final Salmon Roll topped with onion; the sushi was warm, slimy and tasted old. It was depressed sushi roll. For service, the team was friendly, but there were missed steps (did not bring condiments or utensils a couple of times, etc.) and I was brought an alcoholic drink when I asked for non-alcoholic. I will not be back.

    A gem on the outer edge of Little Tokyo/Arts District. The open, airy, colorful vibe of the restaurant was relaxing and inviting. We took my very elderly Japanese grandma here for Mother's day and she thoroughly enjoyed every dish. From the zaru soba, to the tempura, to the tamagoyaki, to the nasu miso, to the chirashi sashimi and finally the yuzu mochi ice cream... The meal we had was exceptional and satisfied 3 generations of Japanese Americans :) Will definitely recommend to friends and family and be back ASAP!

    The team here really cares and took care of my friend and me! Great food/drink options. Casual seating area (no real options for complete privacy) but still was sat at a corner spot and the noise level was fine for a lively feel while still being able to have conversation.

    Good dine la deal! Miso soup, spicy tuna cakes as appetizer (a mini roll, lots of crunch) or a huge basket of vegetable tempura, chef’s selection of nigiri- 5 pieces, a huge specialty roll, and a yuzu cocktail. All for $49. The staff were super nice and went out of their way to make me feel comfortable while waiting for my very late group. Convenient spot in the arts district with a free parking lot at One Santa Fe. I’d come back!

    We had diner during happy hour and our wonderful waiter Ishmael told us about the specials. The rolls and appetizers were delicious. Enjoyed the hot sake, eggplant, special edamame, etc. all so tasty. My only criticism was that the actual pieces of nigiri sushi which were tiny and uninspiring. We had 3 birthdays at the table and the waiters sang us happy birthday and an assortment of Mochi. Had a wonderful time and we’re well taken care of. Much thanks

    My wife and I came here for a date and we felt so welcome. On both visits here, we feel like we are among friends. The ambience is amazing and we love the decor. The food was amazing!!! On this visit we had the udon soup, katsu with curry along with two sushi rolls. One of which is our favorite, the Cajun roll. Highly recommend this place if you love Japanese food.

    Kombu never disappoints! I frequent the Silver Lake location, but tried out the new location for Valentine's day. The ambiance at this location is a VIBE. Delicious food, great service. I do wish the reservation let you know you might be sitting outside. Luckily they have heat lamps, but I was still a little chilly. Not a huge deal, but just be mindful of that when making your reservation.

    Staff was very friendly and kind. Waited about an hour to get our food. Staff was kind enough to offer us free beer while we wait. Very nice ambiance for a date. Go with time to spare because food does take long. But very tasty!
