Awesome Awesome sushi

Great restaurant and great sushi. Weird nexus of California sushi rolls and authentic Japanese sushi. Perfect mix! Happy campers all around! Will definitely go again. Love it!

Was recommended to Isao and was lucky to get a table after half an hour of waiting. Unfortunately, my friend and I were quite full so we didn't order much but the Sushi Sandwich was simply amazing. Would definitely go back to Isao on my next trip just for the Sushi Sandwich :)

Phenomenal food. Highly recommended. The crispy sushi was my first. We were there for lunch. Be prepared for 10-15 min wait

Great set lunches which is extremely value for money. Had the chiraishi and it was one of the fresher ones I've had in Bangkok. Makis are exceptionally and innovative. Should try the scallop sashimi (served on slices of lemon). exceptionally good! Been coming back weekly for jap food fix.

Touted as one of the finest sushi joints in Bangkok. Definitely proved why so with its offerings. Prices were justified by the quality of food we got. This only applies to its specialty and signature dishes. Apart from sushis their 'main courses' were not that great.

Very tasty Japanese fare. Loved the Volcano scallop! Lunch sets are very affordable and service is prompt. We had a shaky table and our very attentive server noticed it even before we did. Without a word, she immediately shoved a thick piece of paper under the table leg to balance it. Will always stop here when we are in BKK.

Tried to book this place 2 times and couldn't get a reservation, we were advised to try a walk up around 8.00pm as the place normally starts to empty out around then. We had to wait about 20minutes for table and around 8.30 the place really emptied out. All the food we had was nice , with the silky tofu... More

We though that by coming at 845pm, we would have cut the queue. Wrong! There were at least 8 groups ( most are in twos) infront of us! This was my first time but my sister ate here a few times told me this place is very popular and good. The place is rather small. No other outlets in Bangkok.... More
