Bangkok is spoiled with omakase options, but most are upmarket and expensive. Recently, the off-beat 49 Terrace on Sukhumvit Soi 49 began offering a quiet, casual space with an outdoor seating area called Kimi Sushi Bar.

Located outdoors by the main stairs, the pop-up, wooden, hut-like Kimi offers six seats at the counter for food and a few other seating options for drinking. When it rains, diners will still be protected by the shades but should expect some splashes in a downpour. 

Don’t let the super casual setting fool you into thinking that it isn’t serious about the food. The omakase here is served in Edomae style, a process-heavy method with roots in the Edo period — back when the lack of refrigeration caused a reliance on cooking techniques in aging, fermentation, and more.

Natural wines, up to 10 labels, always rotate.

A 12-course meal is priced at THB1,299. Those who want to make sure they go home with a full stomach can opt for a 15-course meal for THB2,099. 

Some of the highlights we enjoyed included the torched kinmedai (alfonsino), bringing out the soft smokiness nicely, and ankimo, a monkfish liver served with a tiny dollop of wasabi to cut through the fattiness. Lovers of uni, or sea urchin roe, will also get a taste at this price.

There are three rounds of omakase and six seats per round: 4pm, 6pm, and 7:30pm. Reservations can be made via Line @Kimisushibar.

Kimi Sushi Bar is located inside The 49 Terrace, a community mall on Soi Sukhumvit 49.
