Food truck offshoot & counter-serve cafe known for Asian-fusion eats, such as spicy shrimp tacos.- Google
"I have never tried the food truck, but Komodo Cafe is wonderful!"
"They also have the best Lychee Lemonade which comes with free refills."

Presentation of food is beautiful, but the tacos were overall lacking in the flavor department. However, what really impressed me were the truffle fries. Definitely order those if you eat here. There aren't that many options for seating and it can get really cramped inside during busy hours. Parking can get frustrating as it is street-parking only. Get the truffle fries!

Service was awesome here. They were very prompt and helpful. Get the killer combo 4 tacos for $10. The banh mi one was unique.

One of the cooks was constantly wiping his nose and dipping his hand back in the meat. He was warned and still continued to dig his nose. Got a full refund. Will not be going back here again.

Overall, I would give Komodo a 4.5, but since that's not an option, I went with 4 and this is why. The location is very close to my house, so I find myself eating out there quite a bit. The MP3 is my favorite flavor to date but I also like the Blazing Shrimp (decently spicy) as well as the Signature. My least favorites/middle-the-road selections include the Loko Modo (very dry beef patty, sauce was only in one part of burrito) and I wasn't crazy about the Java (pork rendang was on the dry side and didn't measure up to the flavor profiles on the rest of the menu). The Lethal Combo option cannot be beat ($10). You get a burrito, a taco and a can of soda. I have been able to taste my way around the menu with this unbeatable combo. The service is always friendly and by now the staff mostly recognize me from my frequent visits. I have noticed a distinct smell/odor as soon as you walk in the door. It is located next to a bus stop but as someone who is also a Chef, I recognize it as more of a cooking smell. Not pleasant to senses, especially when it is most potent in the area where guests order.

Craving tacos and fried rice? Yeah this would be the place to go, seriously some of the best tacos I have had. Also they have truffle fries.. who doesn't love those? The service was just OK and their combos are a pretty good deal.

Large menu, never disappointed. Personal favorites are the Mochiko Chicken, the Java and the MP3. Lychee Lemonade is not to be skipped.

I wasn't crazy about the food truck but had higher hopes for the brick and mortar given the positive reviews and expansive menu. Crab cakes were mini nuggets that were a little too greasy for me, liked the flavor of the tuna tartare but the way that they serve it (tuna tartare tacos?) didn't appeal to me. Meatballs were fine and reasonably priced. Garlic fries were standard thin frozen fries. To me this meal tasted like food truck food, coming out of an actual restaurant. If I ever find myself in the Kosher Corridor again I'll probably head somewhere else.

Amazing food... Very friendly service.. Only down side is that this place is so popular and there's limited seats... But it's worth it. Even having to drive to the west side during traffic... Worth it.... Circling around the block to look for parking... Worth it. Driving back to work in traffic...worth it. Honestly... This place is worth it
