Service was quick and sushi and sashimi were some of the best we have ever had - crab California roll was the highlight (full of real crab).

Went to Isao sushi bar after reading many rave reviews. I would say sashimi is fresh and jackie is really oh so cute but prices are on the high side. SGD 60 per pax (no sake or liquor) Its also quite hard to find. Best to take a taxi there. I stayed in pratunam area so with a 45mins jam... More

Isao fusion Japanese restaurant is my favorite fusion Japanese restaurant in Bangkok. It's located in Sukhumvit road soi 31 not so far from the main road.

It offers wide-range of yummy fusion Japanese menu.... More

There was nothing so spectacular that I would say it was one of my best Sushi I had. It was a little bit better than average because of some nice combination. I really liked the rainbow and the Chicago crazy spicy. I was disappointed by the crispy role. This was boring and the deep fried was chocking the taste. The... More

The tastes are fantastic! Everything tastes so fresh! And the staff was super sweet! I wished we'd stay in Bangkok a little longer so we could go back and eat there again.

Words cannot describe the food that is served by the amazing chefs at this restaurant. The food is fast, fresh, looked good to the eye and the taste was something out of this world. I've worked at a Japanese restaurant, but this was a new experience! We ordered numerous dishes and tried to find something that was not perfect but... More

Jackie roll and crunchy roll are the best! One plate is not enough for us.. The restaurant doesn't accept the reservation in advance, have to wait for the queue. I not recommend if you are in a rush.

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighborhood Profile
Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
