Yummy food; service just ok

My friend and I had dinner & drinks here last week. We work downtown so the location is perfect for us. The food was yummy ~ we got two deluxe crunch rolls, one dynamite roll & one montana roll to share. The dynamite roll was on its own plate and was delicious. The other rolls came out all on... read more

My friend was celebrating her birthday and it was a group of 15 people total. The wait for the food was sorta weird. Appertizers for some people came after some folks got their main dish. Having a glass of water was hard to come by because the waitress didn't check on our table regularly. My food taste amazing once I... More

Tsunami is one of my new favorites for meeting friends while enjoying sushi. The atmosphere is good and they usually have great music playing whether or not you dine in or on the patio. The service is great and they will usually cater to your palate's desire if they can. Great place and fresh A1 foods.

A friend recommended Tsunami for happy hour and I am so glad he did! We got 3 sushi rolls for $10 and all of their alcohol was half off. I got 18 pieces of sushi and a large hot sake and my meal was around $13. You can't beat those prices! The sushi was pretty good anyway but for that... More

I ordered three rolls, the gamecock, firecracker, & another specialty roll; all were good, wait time was about 20mins, all in all, a nice place of eat. Parking in the back is only five dollars, if you can't find a free space.

Food was very good and fresh...have had various sushi dishes and some hot dinners too...all very appealing and tasty. Good atmosphere whether it's just for two or for a group of 8 or more. My only complaint is that I've asked management more than once to put a good coffee service on the menu...not only at this location but at... More

The food is very fresh and a great portion size. I ate the Steak and Scallops Hibachi. The Scallops were huge! I really enjoyed the atmosphere as well. It is a great little place to take your date or have a great girls night out dinner.
