Endo Sushi – Osaka’s best sushi restaurant has opened a branch in Bangkok. It was such a piece of fantastic news for us, and of course we had to check it out during our recent trip to Bangkok.
Endo Sushi is synonymous with Osaka Central Fish Market, where the nondescript eatery gained international recognition for its sushi platters; they are nothing but fresh and affordable.
So is its Bangkok outpost worth visiting? The answer is a definite yes. Our decision to take a special trip there proved to be right and here is why you need to visit Endo Sushi in Bangkok.
Sitting on the second level of The Taste Thonglor, Endo Sushi is a lot posher than its humble space in Osaka Central Fish Market. The seating capacity is a lot bigger as well, and the restaurant is segmented. Pick from counter seats where you can watch the chefs in action, individual tables of 4, and private rooms.
The menu differs slightly too. From appetisers to main courses, everything is as Japanese as it can get.
Of course, you have the classic Endo Sushi sushi platter. Each set is THB480, and it comes with five pieces per platter. We went with Sets A and D, and loved every single piece from Set A that we had to get another serving.
Set A includes a piece of the much-coveted Toro sushi—fatty tuna that is so creamy with a melt-in-the-mouth texture; something that Endo Sushi is known for.
While prices are significantly higher than its original Osaka branch—THB480 (S$18.80) as compared to ¥1,050 (S$13.90)—you should still go ahead with that little splurge at Endo Sushi.
The freshness is unrivalled, and the high standards the chefs hold for their sushi is definitely worth appreciating.
