We've been coming to Isao for years and it never disappoints! The service is always on point as is the food. If you want to make reservations you must do so quite a bit ahead of time... About a week. We often go on the spure of the moment and show up right at opening to put our names on... More

Been there 3 times all ready, they have a nice menu with a los of options. Everything its very fresh, but I think for this same reason is that a lot of times they don`t have all the products display on the menu. If you go, try the shooter, its really good. Nice restaurant for lunch or dinner and even... More

Delicious fusion Japanese food in Sukhumvit 31. Prices are slightly higher than chain Japanese restaurants bur the food quality is higher. You have to call for reservation in advance because it is always busy and long queue.

Sushi here was amazing! We went without a reservation and had to wait a bit to get a spot, so definitely would recommend making a reservation. The fried tofu was awesome too!

Was recommended by a friend and I was not disappointed, had the spicy California roll with real crab could've been a bit spicier but overall the flavours were delicious, had the shrimp tempura which was perfect savouring each mouthful till the very end , I bit disappointed with the wine and Sake offering but the food was exceptional

Never have been disappointed at Isao, whether taking out or eating at Isao itself. Sushi and sashimi is always fresh and tasty and staff super friendly.

Absolutely wonderful menu and the presentation is first class. Our friends booked well in advance and looking at the queue to get in, that's a wise move. Also, I should have taken some vino as this wasn't on offer. Otherwise, our evening dining here was one to remember for all the right reasons.

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.
