The Japanese fusion dishes are awesome, however the normal sushi and sashimi are not so good with it's really high price and the quality we got.

Tried this after being highly recommended on food blogs. Restaurant was about 10-15 mins walk from Terminal 21 (BTS Asoke). First time having such Japanese dishes. Taste as good as it looks. Rather expensive in Bangkok though, ordered 3 dishes and cost about USD 32 for 2 pax. Will definitely come back again.

It was packed when I went there and had to wait about 20 mins for the seats at the sushi bar, which found that the wait was well-worth it as soon as I had my first dish. All the ingredients were very fresh, nice presentation and the taste and texture of the dishes were amazing. I had ordered Baby Octupus,... More

This sushi spot is very popular, and with good reason. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is casual but comfortable. We did have to wait outside about 20 Minutes but we were offered beers while we waited, always a nice gesture. The food was good, especially the rolls which were creative and tasty, but they just weren't really excellent... More

The queues here are always long to get a table and they only accept reservations a few days prior, however the food is worth the hassle to get a spot. Simple, fresh and tasty options for Sushi, Sashimi and grilled meat. Most items on the menu are winners.

We discovered the place by accident - while walking down the Sukumvit Soi 31 to 'So Thai Spa' (that we also wholeheartedly recommend). A long queue of people waiting outside caught our attention, this is usually the best recommendation. On the way back we decided to give it a try and although it was 10 minutes before the closure (10... More

We really enjoyed the sushi. It was very delicious, fresh and tasty. Big pieces of fish and a lot of different things to choose from. We tried 5 different makis! Wis was so full but it was so good. Will come back if possible. The price is reasonably and the crowd only young Thai couples or families.
