If you're craving some Asian-Mexican fusion food, come check this place out. It's a small, cute place. I was warmly greeted when I walked in. They had their menu written out on a big chalkboard to your left and they also have a menu by the register. Since it was my first visit, I asked the girl for recommendations. I decided to try the deadly combo which included 2 tacos, truffle or garlic fries, and a drink. SERVICE: Great! They kept coming around to ask if I needed anything, if I enjoyed my food, and were very friendly. DRINKS: *Passion Fruit Green Tea: very good! Had a very subtle passionfruit flavor and wasn't too sweet. *Lychee Lemonade: Perfect! It was good balance between lychee and sweet lemonade. I made an Arnold Palmer and mixed the two and it tasted good! Yay for free refills! :) TACOS: I decided to try their two most popular tacos based off the girl's recommendation. Both were very delicious! *Komodo 2.0 (Seared Top Sirloin w/ Jalapeno Aioli & Southwest Corn Salad): Tasted like pieces of steak covered with corn. Yum! *Signature (Marinated Top Sirloin w/ homemade Guacamole & Cotija Cheese): Loved the guacamole and cheese! SIDE: *Truffle fries: Giant bowl of skinny french fries drizzled with truffle oil and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. Yum! PARKING: -Street/meter parking I would definitely come back and try one of their bowls or other menu items.

Having been to the Komodo Cafe in Venice, I decided to come to the location closer to me. This location is about a 1/3 of the size of the Komodo Cafe in Venice and has limited seating, definitely not good for large groups. Nevertheless, the food is just as amazing. I would suggest getting their Deadly Combo: 2 tacos, fries, and a can of soda. Pass on the can of soda and upgrade for one of their premium drinks, aka the Lychee Lemonade. The drink is so refreshing and tasty. The Komodo 2.0 taco is still my favorite taco. I tried the Fish n' Grapes and the flavors were okay, but there was barely any fish in the taco. The truffle fries are a most and Komodo always gives more than enough to share. I also got to try the Mochiko Fried Chicken. The plate reminded me more of a terriyaki chicken dish than fried chicken. The chicken isn't covered with a dry, crispy batter. It is a moist chicken fillet with a really delicious savory sweet sauce. I was pleasantly surprised by how good this dish was. I wish I got it for myself. Parking is difficult, as there is only street parking. If I was craving Komodo, I would probably make the drive to the Venice location. It's much more open and cleaner feeling with all the same great food at this location.

Their sign "dangerously good food" is a fairly apt description. In general the food is great, but probably on the overly salty side. Nasi Goreng tasted wonderful and was accompanied by a delicious garlic aioli. Tacos were accompanied by some great salsa. 4 for $10 lets you try a variety. I liked Meatballs were a bit too salty to eat alone. Fried chicken had amazing tenderness and crispy skin. For the price point, you get pretty amazing and imaginative food.

I'm usually just a straight up street taco kind of girl, but I'll pay the premium for Komodo (it's not even that bad). I've had almost all their tacos-- my favorites are the Fish n' Grapes and the MP3. Order the truffle fries to share since they come pretty big in size. I tend to be more conservative when eating out and only get water (also because I don't like to take away the flavor from my meal with a sugary drink), but go for the lychee lemonade. Every hint of flavor complements each other superbly! The only con of this place is that it's very, very small, but if you're okay with eating at the cramped bar space or waiting for a table, then it's not a problem.

Not too much to write besides the fact that the food here rocks! I love how you can try four different types of tacos with their taco combo, which is 4 tacos (mix and match) for $10. One complaint: I wish the steak was less well done. If you come here with another person, I recommend getting one taco combo and one burrito+taco+drink combo. Upgrade the drink to a fountain drink for an extra dollar, and you get free refills of their delicious drinks. We liked the mango citrus the best! We also saw lots of people getting the nachos, which looked ridiculous. In a huge and good way. Park on the street - there is one hour parking until 6PM, and free unlimited parking after.

I thought komodo sounded familiar, apparently they were a food truck back in the days and made it so big that they now have a store front! My buddy took me to eat here for a quick bite before going out and though the space is tiny they never had a shortage of people of constantly coming in for more food! there were 3 selection of Taco, burrito or rice bowl and then you choose the type of side from salmon to tofu. I, of course ordered the vegetarian dish, the tofu side and the guy taking my ordered strongly suggest i pay for the rice bowl. Which l felt would probably tasted better with as a taco dish but i realized he was probably up selling me since taco was at $3 each and the bowl was $14 ! The dish itself was very mediocre and bland, and def. not worth the $14. My friend ordered the salmon and salad on the side. His salad was drenched with too much salt and was just to salty to even be touched ! overall experience was just eh to be frank, i probably wouldn't be back.

Been here multiple times and everything I have ever ordered was amazing. My highlights include: Nasi Goreng (Indonesian fried rice), Komodo 2.0, and crab cakes. They also have the best Lychee Lemonade which comes with free refills. Everyone is super friendly and it feels like you're at a sit-down restaurant. Seating can also be difficult during peak hours as the place isn't that big, but I've never had trouble. Parking can be difficult as it's only street/metered.

I have never tried the food truck, but Komodo Cafe is wonderful! It is located on the corner of Pico and Robertson. Depending when you come, parking may be sparse or limited, but you should be able to find meter parking somewhere. The meters here also take card! The restaurant itself is relatively small so if you happen to come at a busy time, it might just be better to take your order to go. Luckily, I came here for a late lunch on a weekday so parking and seating worked out well for me. From one first-timer to another, I would recommend going with the combos. I had the Killer Combo and the Lychee Lemonade. Being the indecisive fatass that I am, the menu left me a little overwhelmed. There are a number of choices that all sound appetizing so the Killer Combo allows you to try 4 of their tacos for $10, which isn't bad at all. For my 4 tacos, I went with the Komodo 2.0, MP3, SOI, and the Early Bird. All of them were bomb, but my favorite was probably the MP3, which was a sirloin steak taco topped with tater tots (YES), garlic aioli (DOUBLE YES), and ... seared quail eggs (HELL YES)! Komodo 2.0 is also another sirloin steak taco, but with spicy aioli and southwest corn salad. SOI taco was my (sad) attempt at choosing something "healthy", but this vegetarian soy tempeh option wasn't half bad at all and it was more on the zestier side. Early Bird taco caught my eye with the egg.. and the egg never fails me :) Now wash all the taco goodness down with a refreshing and not overly sweet Lychee Lemonade. Soo good and free refills!
