Fodor's Expert Review Isao

$$$ Sukhumvit Japanese Fodor's Choice
Bangkok has hundreds of Japanese restaurants, but only Isao has a line out the door 365 nights a year. The reason is simple: this humble little eatery serves up the most creative sushi rolls west of California. The owner studied under the chef at the revered Green Tea in Chicago, and the repeat clientele attests to the enthusiasm for his culinary flights of fancy. Try the Jackie, a caterpillar-shape sushi roll with shrimp and tempura, or the Volcano, a baked scallop in cream sauce fashioned to resemble molten lava. The spicy tuna and salmon rolls are transcendent, and the prices, compared to just about any other Japanese joint, are very reasonable. Reservations are not accepted. Just show up, give your name, and join the happy masses.
