Love the eclectic menu

While taking our son back to school at the University of South Caroina, he suggested Tsunami for dinner. My husband and son love sushi while I prefer other types of asian food. Tsunami's menu had something for each of us. The atmosphere is very modern and industrial feeling. The wait staff was... read more

The good: largest sushi menu ever, beautiful decor, well-stocked bar. The bad: long waits to be seated, long waits for food. The ugly: the owner treats customers & staff like dirt. Can't believe those kids working there put up with her yelling & disdain. God forbid as a paying customer that you should have a concern or complaint...you are always... 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

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 one...

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.
