Los Angeles’ famous Sushi Zo, founded by Osaka-born and Tokyo-trained Chef Keizo Seki, heads to Asia with its first Asian outpost in Bangkok.

Awarded a Michelin star in Los Angeles (2009) and a second Michelin star in New York (2016), the omakase bar, is best known for its ittai-kan style: the balance between the neta (the seafood) and shari (sushi rice). Sushi Zo does not provide the usual soy sauce at the bar but instead prepares each piece of sushi in its own creative seasoning, and the seafood is flown in from Japan daily.

The restaurant is hidden behind a discreet door in the centrally located Athenee Plaza Tower on Wireless Road in central Bangkok. Heading the omakase experience is executive chef Toshi Onishi. (www.sushizobangkok.com)
