Sushi to go back for

The sushi and other food we ate at Tsunami was awesome and incredibly fresh.....the home-made salad dressing was to die for. The buy one/get one offer on sushi rolls can't be beat - sure wish we had this restaurant in Houston!

Stopped for lunch on a thursday, almost nobody there - friendly and attentive service. Big servings on the nigiri! They cut some fat pieces of fish, so we definitely got our money's worth there. Rolls were tasty - we very much enjoyed our visit. Like another comment I saw, not all that many choices for sashimi / nigiri. No hamachi,... More

When i think sushi, i usually think nigiri. However the options were limited for sushi so we ended up ordering three or four different rolls. They were really good and fresh tasting. We also got the garlic edamame. That was awesome! I wanted to drink the sauce they were immersed in but that would have caused an immediate high sodium... More

We don't make a trip to Jaco without dinner at least twice a week here. We love to sit at the bar and watch them creating the dishes... and most of all, the crunch rolls are FANTASTIC! We have always been happy with our meals and the service. The owner is very accommodating and friendly... and you can tell that... More

The sushi was very fresh and there was a good selection of rolls which were half off. I also enjoyed a glass of savignon blanc. The service was perfect even though it was very busy and we left extremely satisfied. Highly recommend!!!

My friend and I went 2 days in a row, it was so good. The rolls are very varies with a wide array of fishes flavours and textures. Mike, one of the owners, was very friendly and helpful.
