Sushi Zo comes highly acclaimed from Los Angeles and New York.
Bangkok's omakase restaurant scene keeps going from strength to strength. Last year, Masato Shimizu moved from his one-Michelin-starred restaurant 15 East in New York to open Sushi Masato. Now another big name has followed suit.
Sushi Zo was started by Japanese chef Keizo Seiki in Los Angeles in 2006, and it was awarded a Michelin star in 2009. After establishing a second branch in L.A., he expanded to New York City with an omakase-only restaurant in 2015 that Michelin later awarded one star in its 2017 guide.
Headed by Hokkaido-born executive chef Toshi Onishi, the Bangkok branch sticks to the omakase-only concept and accommodates about 10 diners per seating. The price falls between B6,000-8,000 for about 18 courses, made edomae-style. Reservations are required two days in advance, but we can see that lengthening substantially.
