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

Was in the neighbourhood so stopped in. The small restaurant was almost full of a younger crowd of Thais and tourists but not a Japanese person in sight, not a good sign. After sitting down and getting menus the staff then ignored us for ten minutes while they cleaned empty tables. The folks beside us were playing cards, when we... More

This place was difficult to find, unless you are very familiar with the Nimmanhaemin area. It is between two sois on an adjoining alleyway. The decor is rather plain, but not unattractive. We were seated at a small table towards the back of the restaurant, and the waitress was kind enough to offer us a larger table near the front... More

I have my favourite Japanese places in CM but decided to give it a try after passing it many times. It always appeared a bit non traditional from the outside to be great. Anyhow, the decor was simplistic but functional. We had to sit at the sushi bar on stools as the small place was packed mainly with western tourists.... More

The prices were decent, the presentation was lovely but the overall taste was overpowered by crazy thick gooey sauces. The atmosphere was average, and service was good. They would have me coming back if they offered a few lighter options, i love sushi but everything either had deep friend tempura or half a pound of mayonnaise slopped on!

Fresh fish, creative dishes and quick service. We ate here twice and really enjoyed the scallops and dragon sushi. The fried food was a bit heavy and I wouldn't order it again but all the rest was delicious and nicely presented.

This is not the place to go for a serious sushi experience. I cringe to say it but I have had better luck at the Fuji and Zen chains. To be fair, I only ordered 2 dishes, one maki roll and one negeri, but that was enough. The volcano roll, which I ordered to taste eel was gluey and crunchy.... More
