One of the best sushi omakase restaurants in Bangkok is Umi, and I went to their Gaysorn Village location (https://www.facebook.com/Umigaysorn/). A group of my friends own the restaurant and they had just received a fresh piece of tuna and wanted to do some tasting.
It was just just a top level sushi omakase (served piece by piece, chef’s choice) experience in Bangkok, but it was a tuna learning experience for me. Of all the times I’ve had sushi, I didn’t know much about the tuna. But this time, I learned about the origin, the quality, how it was wild caught, and even tasting the difference between completely fresh and aged, which gives it a different umami sensation.
For out omakase this day, most of the sushi was based on tuna, and Umi Gaysorn Village is aiming to focus on wild tuna, but we also had a few other Japanese food delicacies including shirako (cod sperm) and plenty of incredible uni (sea urchin).
It was an incredible meal. Umi serves one of the best Japanese food - sushi omakase especially focusing on tuna - in Bangkok, Thailand.
