You’ve probably heard the Japanese word Omakase showing up more and more in Bangkok. The word Omakase literally translates from Japanese as “I’ll leave it to you” and is commonly used in restaurants where the chef takes full control of the entire meal — from appetizer to dessert. So forget about making decisions, trust the chef and let them serve up their selection of artfully crafted dishes. All you have to do is inform the staff of any dietary restrictions and preferences, relax in your seat, and enjoy an amazing gastronomical Omakase experience.

Omakase dishes commonly include an assortment of sushi, sashimi, cooked dishes, and seasonal vegetables. Most of the time, you’ll never know exactly what to expect since the dishes vary according to the availability of ingredients. But the element of surprise is what makes it even more exciting. So, if you’re intrigued, here are our top Omakase restaurants in Bangkok (in no particular order).
