Tsu and Nami Restaurant in Bangkok

Tsu and Nami
Chef Norio Nomoto presides over a restaurant in two ways: “Tsu”, dedicated to contemporary Japanese food, and “Nami”, a Teppanyaki steakhouse. “Usually when you visit a Japanese restaurant, you have to choose between sushi and Teppanyaki” he says, “but here you have both under the same roof.”


Tsu has built a reputation for serving the freshest, most delicious sushi and sashimi. The seafood is imported live twice a week from Tokyo’s famed Tsukiji and Fukuoka markets, and it is sensational: the likes of red clam and sweet shrimp sushi, hirame halibut sashimi and ‘new wave’ creations with garlic miso. In-the-know regulars also order the fabulous taraba crab hot pot, a rich and warming mix of king crab and vegetables cooked in a delicate soy-tinged broth. A superb sake menu completes the mix, with scores of bottles, ranging from fruity, clear Gekkeikan to the ultra-dry Sawanotsura Karakuchi.
Meanwhile, Nami specializes in show cooking. It’s a joy to sit up at the counter and watch the chefs at work on hotplates before your eyes, flipping and sizzling meat, seafood and vegetables with acrobatic grace, creating dishes that satisfy and inspire. You’ll need to choose a base for your Teppanyaki, and the specialty here is beef, with superb cuts including Australian Angus, Kobe beef striploin, Hitachi and tender Matsuzaka wagyu. Paired with some pickle fried rice, it’s an unforgettable dinner.


Tsu and Nami are linked by an attractive sake bar and united by an unusual, eye-catching piece of design…a large, arching bamboo “wave” that leaps artfully along their walls and ceilings. The two come together in the weekly Sunday Brunch that is Chef Nomoto pride. “It’s Bangkok’s first Japanese Sunday brunch”, he says “and it showcases some of our very best dishes, so it’s the perfect introduction to the restaurants.”
