Jaco's hidden secret

You wouldn't even know it was there, the windows are dark but you go upstairs, open the door and it's packed with people. I've been to Jaco over two dozen times in the last two years but tried Tsunami Sushi for the first time this trip and was blown away. Their sushi is fresh and so yummy! Price... read more

Fresh Sushi, right in the middle of Jaco. We couldn't find, or our cab driver didn't understand, the "other" popular sushi restaurant in Jaco and we ended up at Tsunami by default. Sat outside on the strip and had amazing Sushi. Fresh, lots of choices. Reasonable prices and good service. We had an American expat waiting on us- it was... More

The food was great, and it has a nice atmosphere. It was a nice change of pace from all of the local sodas that we had been eating at.

My husband and I have a love for sushi. We were recommended to go here as a "high end" restaurant and we disappointed. Their menu is very limited with choices of sashimi or different fish in general. My husband says their "menu sucked." The rolls were way over priced. Now we don't mind paying for good food, especially sushi, but... More

I glad, we found a nice and good place, where we enjoyed our favorite food. My husband and I visit this restaurant in our last visit to Jaco, and we love it. We will be back for sure.

Excellent, fresh sushi. Great happy hour specials. Energetic atmosphere perfect for singles or families. Try their special rolls--delish! Highly recommend if you're looking for some really good sushi.

Best sushi around, for anyone saying its expensive, you want to pay for quality when it comes to raw fish and they run the best specials all week especially wednesday 2 for 1 cant really beat that, the other specials are great too.

Just got into town and this was our first dining experience. We saw that they had half price sushi (although not half price nigiri and sushi- but those were good prices anyways) and everything we ordered was delicious. The shrimp fried rice was a sizable portion and full of delicious shrimp. We would definitely go back! Wait staff were all... More
