We have enjoyed the times we have dined here very much. The food is very good, atmosphere is great. The ONLY thing that stops it from being 5 star is not feeling a good value for the money (ie., half rack of lamb $32 ala cart).

This was an excellent meal. We had the edamame for starter and the peas were crisp and very well seasoned. For the entrees we had the garlic shrimp noodles, hoisin duck, and the pork rice noodles. The flavors were delicate and well balanced. This is an experience I would love to repeat. Sitting outside was very comfortable and safe for social distancing.

Some of the best Asian Cuisine! I highly recommend the Dumplings and Spring Rolls to start. The glazed shrimp was amazing and the Beef in the Beef and Broccoli was some of the most tender Filet mignon! Will definitely return!

This place is wonderful. Drew, our server, was very helpful and answered all our questions. We will request her to be our server in the future. The food was very flavorful and there's no other place like this in NW Arkansas. I have already recommended Komodo to a number of friends.

Food: Veggies in two stir fry dishes were undercooked while the meat and onions were well done. The Rice was steamed perfectly. The Pearl Balls from the Dim Sum menu were fantastic. The Edamame was the best ever (maybe flash-fried after steaming then dressed with a spicy, salty mix.
Service: friendly people; attentive except for about a 15-20 minute lull before our food arrived; then, the Host and the waitress almost competed for adoration at our table(? kinda funny).
The Environment was clean, quiet, modern and attractive

Service was awesome! Restaurant is beautiful, someone cared about every detail there. Food was very good, not over priced. We had fried rice and a clay pot. The clay pot was a lot of chicken and fresh broccoli and onions, sauce was very tasty and a very slight bit sweet. I had fried rice with just vegetables which all tasted fresh. I would come back.

I made a reservation, so when we got there we checked in and went to the bar. They had some of my husband’s favorite beers on draft. I asked the bar tender for a cocktail recommendation. I ordered her suggestion, and it was very good! (The red lotus)
Our server was very attentive. Our appetizer came out fast, and our meal did too. I ordered one of the meals our server recommended, and again, it was a great choice! (The caramel shrimp)
It was a great experience! We will be back!!

Food was very nice. Always enjoy sitting at bar except last evening the bartender must have had an off night. Spent most of time chatting with a person who may work there because she seemed anxious to tell us that 1 of the dipping sauces was fish sauce. Thank you chef for assistance selecting very nice wines.

My friends and I had a great time on a Friday night. We always enjoy any sets that Matt and Tony play, and they are appropriate in providing the appropriate ambiance for any occasion. The food was delicious (I had the shaken beef, squid salad, and tuna tartare. I am definitely returning.

Kat's service was outstanding. She was attentive and never intrusive. She chatted with us and our friends when she had a moment and we enjoyed her brief company. When I told her about the problems with the chicken being tough and over cooked in my Chicken clay Pot dish, she immediately took a new order and took the Clay Pot dish back. The Leeky Beef dish she brought back was very good. My wife's dish, Garlic Shrimp with Noodles was not to her liking. She said it lacked flavor. I've had beef dishes here twice now and they are what I will come back for. Also, I'll ask to be seated at one of Kat's tables.

I asked to be seated in the bar, I was not. Traveling alone, I prefer to not sit alone as it brings attention to that fact. Could I have spoken up? Maybe. But my wishes were in print, why should I have to? Why have the option if you are going to ignore them? The service was excellent and my wait staff was attentive and even answered a couple of questions about the area. The food went from excellent- the citrus jicama salad, to okay--the Thai basil chicken coconut, to very good--the mango and sticky rice. My drink was well made and I liked it very much.
I wouldn't suggest this place for singles or families as the fare is rather unique, but for a couples dinner it would be a good fit.

Thank you very much for your business and for taking the time to give us feedback. I reviewed your reservation and your request for the bar did not come through on our side. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will certainly take this up with Open Table to avoid this in the future. We are more than happy to seat our guests anywhere they'd like as we want them to be comfortable. We hope to have the opportunity to earn your business again. Thank you again.
