There must be hundreds of thousands of noodle stalls in Thailand. Here's one with a twist: it's a regular mostly open-air road-side food stall, however serves Japanese noodles, sushi and rice dishes. The setting is just like a Thai noodles food stall: tables and chairs on the pavement. You can order the noodles by filling in a pre-printed list of dishes, where you just specify how many of each you want to order. There's also a picture menu available for the sushi/sashimi dishes.

Prices are low for the noodle dishes, most go for like 35 baht which is just a tad higher than a Thai 'kuaytiow' noodle stall would charge. The sushi is priced higher, at 55 baht for the ones with more basic ingredients, up to 90 or even 115 for dishes with more expensive fish. (You do get many pieces though..) Individual pieces like the orange shrimp-egg sushi are priced at 15 baht each.

The sushi dishes are definitely getting better all the time. The mixed Sashimi set was excellent, but I thought the seaweed wrappers for some of the wrapped sushi could be more crisp than they were. The noodle dishes remain a very good deal as well.

The place has recently expanded, and also moved from its old location near the intersection with the Canal Road. It moved a bit closer into town and is now in front of the big electronic appliance store, still directly on Huay Kaew road on the left side when driving towards the Canal Road intersection.
