The best sushi we've had in Bangkok. Full stop. Reserve a table for early as the wait for a table after 1900 can get quite long. It's a great place to go with a large group and sample a little of everything.

After being recommended endless Japanese restaurants in Bangkok, we finally settled on Isao. Set down a busy street but it's easy to miss so jump off at the S31 hotel and walk down (just 5 minutes.) It's definitely worth finding, some of the freshest and best Sushi I've had. The fish comes in fresh from Tokyo and goes fast, there's... More

This awesome little Japanese place serves a range of sushi sashimi maki original dishes, all of which are absolutely succulent! The quality of the food is excellent and every dish is a piece of art. The service is very good but expect to have to queue - the place is so popular that there's ALWAYS a queue of people waiting... More

One of the many restaurants in Soi 31 is this premium Japanese restaurant. Delicious food and lots of sake washed down with a few Asahi ! Reservations are necessary !

To some, fusion sushi cannot replace the authenticity of traditional sushi. Well, when it comes to modern-day taste, Isao has given their signature sushi items a refreshing interpretation that is a treat for the taste buds as well as for the eyes. Generous ingredients and good sized portions add up to a hearty and satisfying meal. Food quality is good... More

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
