Sushi Masa (ซูชิมาสะ) Thonglor : High Quality Sushi
Sushi Masa Thonglor branch
One day, I’d searched a sushi place in Bangkok and found some places, Sushi Masa, Honmono sushi, Mugendai, etc. Many of sushi lovers recommend this one on their blog. That’s why I tried Sushi Masa.
Sushi Masa have 2 branches, one is at Siam Swana Hotel and the other one is at Thonglor. According to the website, The first branch, Siam Swana Hotel was opened in 2011 and they got 2nd branch in Thonglor open in 2012. Sushi Masa Thonglor branch is located on Thonglor soi 5, inside of The Andaman.
Actually the atmosphere of Sushi Masa Thonglor branch was not that fancy as I expected. Girls love fancy atmosphere you know 🙂 The place has not that many tables and bar seats. Not much spaces between tables as well. This place could be little bit noisy when the place is getting many people.
The atmosphere is okay for dinner with friends and family. But you better not to try a dinner for a first date! If you look for a nice sushi place with fancy atmosphere, I can tell you try Mugendai and Honmono sushi. Sushi Masa Thonlor branch is quite cozy and real Japanese style.
I was wondering why many people recommend this place. There is a reason definitely.
What I ordered
It’s too difficult to choose only few pieces on the menu. I want to try every pieces of sushi! 😀 I ordered for the first round Masa Toro Sushi set and some pieces for Unagi, Engawa and Akagai. Akagai is my favorite!
The first round wasn’t enough for sure. I knew it! Ordered more Chu-Toroand Akagai sushi. Loved it so much 🙂 And gave it a try for Negi toro maki.
Do I look happy? Absolutely happy mak mak♥ I think I live for a sushi lol. Can’t wait to put the pieces on my tongue!!
Masa Toro Sushi Set
Masa Toro sushi set is a good combination for chewy fatty sushi lovers. It serves total 7 pieces, 2 pcs of O-Toro, 2 pcs of Chu-Toro and 3 pcs of Salmon.
The size and thickness of fish were enough to have them in one bite. I got full in my mouth with 1 piece of sushi. Not too huge, enough big size.
I think it’s the best choice if you hesitate what to order. Try a set first and order more different kinds of pieces you want to taste. They have many kinds of sets. for example Aburi sushi set, Salmon & Akami set, Special set, etc. I want to try Aburi sushi set called Matsu set next time for sure! (Aburi sushi is roasted sushi especially only on the top of the sushi.)
My oh my O-Toro! So chewy and fatty piece! It’s melting away in my mouth and got me full of happiness♥ I know you getting watery mouth now! ;-D
This piece must be a belly part of salmon. I like the way when I chew the salmon belly than normal salmon. It got me fat but loved it so much! lol.
Akagai, Unagi, Engawa sushi
There goes 2nd round. I ordered some more different kinds of pieces. My favorite Akagai sushi and Unagi, Engawa aburi sushi.
Akagai sushi at Sushi Masa was sooooo goooood 🙂 I love non-fatty sushi as well. Fresh and clean, high quality raw ingredients! Engawa aburi sushi just disappeared when I put it on my mouth and got me so greasy. I know this is how it is anyway. I prefer fresh Engawa. Korea and Japan have fresh Engawa but I couldn’t find it in Bangkok yet. Does anyone know where to find fresh Engawa in Bangkok?
Unagi sushi at Sushi Masa was soft and in a good quality. I think Unagi-don will be a good menu for lunch.
Negi Toro Maki
This cute and small maki was over than expectation! The salmon eggs topping gave better taste having them together. But it would be better if the size was more bigger.
Don’t forget to order sake when having sushi! Sake is better than beer definitely. Having sushi with sake gives me a better taste and various flavor. 🙂
