Uomasa is a long standing player on the Japanese food scene that has been serving up some of the best sashimi and traditional Japanese food in town, mostly aimed at purists and Japanese customers. Slightly hidden away in Nihonmachi "Japan Town" in Thonglor Soi 13, Uomasa is immensely popular with the expat Japanese crowd, and for very good reason. The fish here is some of the freshest in Bangkok, and this is one of the few Bangkok establishments to fly fish in from Tokyo's central fish market. Standouts include lobster sashimi, tuna maki rolls, and beef tongue stew, for which Uomasa is noted for. You'll pay a bit more here for all your fresh fish, but it is well worth the splurge, and Uomasa has a very pleasant vibe, with a crowded sushi counter or options to sit tatami style or at tables and chairs.
- Japanese, Thonglor's Best Restaurants: "Best to make a reservation as Uomasa is always crowded. From Sukhumvit, taxi up soi 55 to Thonglor soi 13, another 200 meters down the soi you will find the large Japan Town complex which has many restaurants. Uomasa is in the back, the one with the giant swordfish plaque above it."
