Very nice stuff and good sushi, not as good as in Japan but very solid. Price is OK for sushi. Visited on a Thursday where you also have a night market around.

Loved the food here. Although I was sceptical about sushi in Thailand we went and tried it. The food was fresh and delicious. The staff and owner were great. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
