Occupying an imposing Japanese house on Petchaburi Road, Sushi Ichizu highlights fresh produce from Tsukiji Market and is helmed by the former right-hand man of the sous chef at a Tokyo three-Michelin starred restaurant. The high-end restaurant offers an authentic omakase experience and is best known for their edomae-style sushi. Their signature offerings include iwashi roll (Japanese sardine from Iwate), and ankimo nitsuke (monkfish liver from Hokkaido).
Diners have three options: a regular 16-course omakase course, a mini omakase course, and an exclusive nigiri course. Sushi Ichizu is also one of the few places in town that are willing to create an omakase experience using ingredients specifically requested by diners (with three days’ advance notice).

Aptly named after the Japanese word for “heart,” the team at Kokoro Omakase make sure to pour their hearts into every plate. The venue’s mission is to deliver a premium-quality omakase experience at a more affordable price point. Depending on how hungry you’re feeling, pick between the 16-course menu (six otsumami, seven nigiri, one soup, two desserts) or the 20-course menu (eight otsumami, nine nigiri, one soup, two desserts). Highlights include a fresh katsuo tataki appetizer, their signature crispy zuwai shingo age snow crab meatballs served with abalone udon and grilled ankimo panyaki, and a creamy uni and caviar temaki.

Located inside the swanky Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit, Sasada Omakase is one of the most chic omakase venues in the city. Diners can choose between the standard course or (for a little extra) the premium course—both include a whopping 13 plates, and five unique desserts (like their exquisite uni and matcha macarons). They also host special culinary events from time to time, such as an exclusive “uni tasting.” In addition to the main omakase courses, diners can also order sides to complement their meal—we highly recommend the wagyu katsu sandwich.

Den Kushi Flori

This is the Bangkok (and first overseas) branch of the original Den Kushi Flori in Shibuya, Tokyo, which holds a Michelin star. The name is a portmanteau of sorts, with “Den” and “Flori” paying homage to the chefs’ Tokyo venues and “Kushi” referencing the signature skewered omakase bites you’ll find here. The French-Japanese cooking can be experienced via the revolving five-course lunch or seven-course dinner menus. Thai influences can also be found throughout, such as in the clay pot rice cooked with lotus root, carrot, and gobo root, and topped with beef tongue confit with meat sourced from France.

KIMI Sushi Bar

As one of the city’s first outdoor omakase venues, KIMI Sushi Bar offers a laidback (and pet-friendly) dining experience with affordable prices—perfect for first-timers. Don’t let the casual setting fool you into thinking that they aren’t serious about their food, though. The 15-course omakase menu here is served in the traditional Edomae style, meaning there’s an emphasis on using a variety of aging and fermented techniques. The nama kaki ponzu, a combination of Hokkaido oyster, angel hair seaweed, ponzu sauce, and fresh tomatoes, is the perfect opening dish, while the tachiuo tempura is deep-fried to crispy perfection. The Uni, shoyu-soaked chutoro zuke, and a smoky torched kinmedai are all included in the sushi menu.

Ginza Sushi Ichi

Ginza Sushi Ichi is not the first restaurant in Bangkok to claim it flies its fish straight from Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market, but it is the first to say that, no matter what day you dine, the fish will have been at the market less than 24 hours before service. And now with its own Michelin star to complement the one at its Tokyo mother branch, Ginza Sushi Ichi treats guests to uncompromisingly authentic omakase-style sushi. The tako umani is served in a flavor-packed octopus broth. A culinary and theatrical standout is the live Hokkaido taraba crab, which is boiled, cleaned, and then portioned according to the number of diners in the party.

Diners who are keen for a different omakase experience will enjoy Ginza Tenharu, which serves an exclusively tempura omakase. Enormous Hokkaido scallops, decadently rich Kobe beef, pockets of nori stuffed with creamy sea urchin, and other such highly prized produce—all jet-propelled from Japanese markets more recently than you last went to bed—gets delicately fried in sunflower oil and presented to customers one piece after another. The 11- or 12-course dinner omakase includes sashimi appetizers, and a bowl of rice or soba noodles as a hearty main complement. For a lighter option, go early in the day for the lunch menu.

There’s a reason Watanabe BKK’s truffle soba omakase is one of the hottest reservations in town. The menu is divided into three courses: Standard, Gold, and Diamond. While the soba is the star of the show, the menu also includes non-soba delicacies such as the toryufu wagyu sukiyaki, which features wagyu dipped in a 72-hour fermented soup and then a bowl of truffle-infused egg yolk. The standout, though, is the toryufu soba, which is served in a generous amount of truffle. The soba is rolled in front of you, and there is a knob of butter on the side to add to the sauce, making it even more silky and aromatic.

Roughly translated as “sand flowing through an hourglass” in Japanese, Saryu embodies Chef Seiji Sudo’s 10 years of training and his tireless dedication to curating rare finds and quality ingredients for his omakase style. With only one sitting of six guests per day, it’s one of the most exclusive omakase experiences in town. The 15-course experience includes dishes like chutoro, an exquisite cut of fatty tuna belly on a bed of crispy and subtly sweet seaweed from Saga Prefecture, nigiri made from the chef’s secret recipe of three different rices, and his yakisushi, baked sushi rice mixed with hairy crab, uni, beltfish, dried mullet roe, and shirako (fish semen).
