Bangkok Sushi; A real neighborhood gem
The moment you set foot at Bangkok Sushi, you know you’ve walked somewhere truly special and unique. Not only does this place have the most delicious sushi and thai food in the area, but it’s also one of the most exquisitely decorated restaurants I have ever had the pleasure of visiting.
You can enjoy a seat at the sushi bar, on the charming outside patio or in the incredibly beautiful dining room. White table cloths, silverware, impressive Asian sculptures, remarkable paintings hung in gold frames and gorgeous fresh ﬂowers will enhance your dining experience and delight your senses.
The staff is friendly and extremely attentive without being intrusive. They came to check on me and re-ﬁlled my drink several times without me having to call on them.
Your taste buds will come alive with their impressive selection of authentic thai favorites such as Pad Thai, Crispy Duck, Yum Squid, Volcano Lobster and Bangkok Combo Fried Rice. I had the pleasure of trying the Crispy Duck in a medium spice curry sauce and it was incredible; Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, perfectly seasoned and served with fresh veggies and white rice. All thai dishes can be prepared with little to no spice or, for those with a taste for adventure, Native Thai Hot!
As an appetizer I ordered the “Bangkok Spring rolls.” These crispy rolls were stuffed with shrimp, ground pork, dry mushrooms, bean threads, carrots, onions, cabbage and scallions wrapped with a special rice paper, lightly deep fried and swerved with sweet plum sauce and ground peanuts. Each bite was a crunchy explosion of ﬂavor! They were fantastic! Hands down, the best spring rolls I have ever had in my life. Make sure you get a side on your next visit, you will not regret it.
Bangkok sushi also oﬀers the freshest sashimi and sushi with a wide variety of specialty rolls that are guaranteed to please. I love sushi and I am a very picky when it comes to fresh raw ﬁsh, and the sushi at Bangkok exceeded my expectations. Let me start by saying that the presentation of each of the rolls I ordered was incredibly beautiful. They looked almost too pretty to eat.
Roger from Lutz says; “Bangkok is the Best sushi place in the area. The presentation is always beautiful, and it tastes just as good as it looks.” I definitely agree with Roger! I’ve never seen sushi rolls presented in such a spectacular way before! Each sushi roll was truly a work of art and tasted even better than how they looked. In addition, the sushi portions are deﬁnitely larger than in other sushi joints in Tampa. I love anything tempura fried, that’s why the “Baba Roll” caught my eye while going over the extensive list of specialty roll options. This particular roll has shrimp tempura, cream cheese, asparagus, topped with cooked eel, steamed shrimp, avocado, eel sauce and spicy mayo. It was simply unbelievable, they achieved the perfect combination of some of my all time favorite sushi ingredients, I was very pleased. But the roll that completely blew my mind, was the “Lobster Roll.” This fabulous roll, besides looking like a work of edible art, tasted like a piece of pure heaven. In all my years eating sushi, never have I seen or tasted a better Lobster roll than this one. What makes it so amazing and unique? Well, let me ask you this; Have you ever seen half of a big lobster tail come with your lobster roll? Me neither! Until I came to Bangkok sushi. Not only you get half of a big tail stuﬀed with juicy lobster meat, but you are guaranteed a big chunk of juicy lobster on each roll bite. Yummy! The photos do not do it justice, so trust me, if you like lobster, order this roll.
George N. rated Bangkok sushi 5 stars and says; “Excellent Asian Fusion. Located right next to Carrabba's in Lutz, this gem a of restaurant caters to all things fresh and spicy. The restaurant is clean and inviting. The staﬀ are excellent and very knowledgeable about the menu items. We started with the excellent Monster roll sushi, that was so large and delicious that we almost ﬁlled ourselves. I had the Jungle curry, which was just the right amount of spicy curry and fresh veggies. Everyone enjoyed their food and there was plenty of take-out for the next day.”
