Half off sushi night is the jam.

The sushi is fresh, thick, sticky, and filling. Half off nights (Wednesday and Friday) are well worth the wait. Two different sushi rolls are more than enough. The veggie tempura is to die for.

Tsunami Sushi is a great find. Especially on Wednesday and Friday when they offer about 15 of their rolls at half price. I try to make it at least twice a month. Jefferson one of the chefs is marvelous and knows his trade. Especially good are the veggie tempura and the Jaco roll, yummy. Don't worry if you are not... More

We ate here for lunch. They offered a 2 for 1 special which for our budget nicely. Every bring was very fresh and well presented. If you like sushi, this is your spot.

A group of co-workers and I had attended some regional training in Coronado, San Jose, CR and decided to take a few days off and visit the beach. We stayed near Jaco and went into town in the evenings for dinner. One of the first places we ate at was a place called Tsunami Sushi. First off, I am not... More

Cute small little place upstairs from the Plaza. Walked in to a very dark and intimate atmosphere with a very chill vibe. We were greeted by a very nice server who told us right away about all of the specials and even helped answer some questions for my new to sushi self. The sangria was delicious, and the margaritas were... More

Tsunami was recommended by a friend of ours that lives in Jaco. We decided to try it and everything about it was fabulous! They have a beautiful restaurant, air conditioning, great staff and most important fantastic sushi! They have a couple days a weeks that certain sushi is half price. I'm fairly sure it's Wednesday and Friday! Definitely a restaurant... More

Really nice atmosphere in this place, with friendly, attentive, bar staff. The menu has a great variety, so although it's a sushi restaurant, there's plenty of other stuff on the menu to satisfy non sushi eaters.

This place has great sushi. So great in fact that during their half off sushi nights on wed and fri the place is packed and the wait can be up to 45m. Which doesn't really happen anywhere else in town. When this happens it takes forever to get your order and often times, even at a table of four, the... More

We loved this placed last year and had to be the first place we ate at this year. Never disappointed. The owner goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and his staff is great too. One of our places to have Sushi and we are from Ohio. Highly recommend it. The BEST in Jaco by far!
