Best Sushi I have had Thailand. Period.

The restaurant is not too cozy and I see way too much plastic there. Service is fast while in the kitchen they really need their time to prepare the best Sushi I have had in Thailand. It is slightly on the expensive part of the scale but Sushi lovers will confirm that every Bath is wisely invested... read more

My favorite place in CM for sushi. Their sweet potato avacado roll is my favorite. Also love their monster roll and Godzilla roll. Only downside is that they don't have air conditioning and it's open to the outside. Usually have problems with Mosquitos. Very reasonable though and it doesn't stop us from going back.

I recall reading from a lot of other reviews that this place has a lot of sauces on its sushi and that he is creative. Well, the old Romans used heavy sauces to cover the taste of rotten meat. I thought I would try to taste basic sushi to see if he could do a decent job of just the... More

The rolls that we ordered were amazing. I think they were the Caterpillar and Godzilla rolls, definitely would go back if I ever visit again. Service was good and between 3 of us it was only ~200 baht a person.

I've been here on a number of occasions, and every single time the quality of the food has been superb. I didn't like sushi before I tried the sushi here. It is definitely not traditional Japanese, so if that's what you're looking for you will be disappointed! The tastes are amazing, the presentation is beautiful and the service is good.... More

Staff cant stop looking at the customers while they are eating, it makes us feel so uncomfortable. besides, it doesnt make any senses for the sashimi to be in warm temperature. i think they seriously need ALOT improvement on that.

A stop into Sumo is well worth the time and money. Ton, the chef, is well versed in sushi and speaks Thai and English. He creates fantastic food that looks so good everyone gets out their cameras before eating! I really enjoyed the Heaven Roll and the new King Kong roll. My 8 year old also loved the Heaven and...

This is not traditional Japanese food; it's Japanese food crossed for a Western palette. While you can get some traditional fare, the main focus here is putting a creative twist on typical Japanese food. Even though the place is small and the atmosphere is definitely lacking (narrow and cramped, sterile lighting, and too hot much of the time), the food... More

I eat a lot of sushi so I was delighted when a friend brought me to this tucked-away place. It's small, basic and more of a coffee shop design rather than a Japanese sushi place. The menu is confusing, but there are lots of photos and my friend helped guide me. The gyoza were good, not great; the seaweed salad... More
