just kidding on the title but felt we were jipped here big time. craving for some Japanese cuisine I went again to TA. Edoya only had 4 reviews that were written well, I was sold. my gf picked a place in Siam Paragon but I trumped her. she got me this time for sure though. we both didn't like the food. ordering two set dishes, a 1600 baht sashimi set and a 1400 baht sushi set. thats a 100 dollars right there, candy if its quality fish. not so tonight. the preparation was surely there but super sad flavors tonight. OK there was torro on the sashimi set but they were three stringy pieces. I did get a hinder of what I like out of torro but it was swift and gone. the ahi (yellowfin tuna) was so bland it made for the worst on the plate. the yellow tail (hamachi) passed but again lacking that taste. sad to say the scallops on this set were the best, nice and sweet. if you look at my pic you see 8 nice choices of sashimi, here my picture gives too much credit for this dish. the Ikura (salmon roe) was fine as well as the clams. what I did appreciate on this set was all the chiso leaves and fresh ground wasabi.
getting over the woes of our sashimi we were optimistic on the sushi set we ordered. the picture looked so great on the menu and for 1400 baht figured quality cuts were comming. NOPE, the magurro looks the best but I cant say. they served me mentaiko when it looks like uni in the menu pic. the ika (squid) always a cheap cut but a fave of mine tasted like a baby squid you would get at any Big C and seemed to be on its last day or two. ika is an easy pleasure for many and cheap to find, big booo on that one guys.
wanted to get the aji (Spanish mackeral) sashimi mixed but un available tonight so opted for an order of magurro instead. blah blah but just OK. now not just beating them up all night we did find salvation in the hamachi kama (yellowfin collar). grilled perfect and saltyness again perfect, very nice and fatty. we both agreed. one beer one hot green tea (refillable) and one bottle water to complete the meal. 4200 baht. I would of gladly paid double this for quality fish. I feel I know my fishies and quality and just not up to par as places in Tokyo as I read in a previous review. so if my rating seems cruel I just wanna be fair and maybe management will look into the quality or maybe we were just here on the wrong night. honestly we still need to get our Japanese cuisine fix in after this so it is what it is. service is fine and always like the hellos and goodbyes from all the staff in Nihongo.
