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.

We have been to this location several times, and twice since they moved next door. The first time was in April 2014 and we had a party of 12. It was a busy Saturday night and they had multiple large parties but they managed to maintain awesome service and quality sushi. We also just went for our anniversary with our... More

I've been to this Tsunami location dozens of times, and the restaurant itself has gone further and further down through frequent management changes. At first, this restaurant was top-notch, with great sushi and other foods, reasonable prices for the quality, and great service. I just visited this last weekend and was appalled by how much it has gone down. The... More

Got there at 10:15. Took 10 minutes for the disorganized hostess to seat me even though tables were available & 2 others were seated ahead of me. I have gray hair, a disadvantage there after 10. Waiter was just OK, drink was short and watered down, food slow and average. If you want good sushi with good service (after 10),... More

To be brief, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great! I had a miso soup which was delicious! It was just "right". Some places can't make it, but the one I had here was excellent. I also had one of their sushi rolls, I think it might have been an Avocado and Crab California roll and that was bland and... More

We enjoyed good beer and perfect apps before a baseball game. The flatbread was ample to share with two others along with deviled eggs done with a yummy twist. One fish and chips order with the apps were more that the three of us needed and the price was exceptional.

Reviewed the impressive menu and opted to go with the 3 roll Tuesday special for $8.95. Was wondering if they would short me on the amount of actual fish I would receive... They did not! Very nice portions, awsome flavors, fresh ingredients and an attentive (and attractive) wait staff kept everyone happy. Can't wait to try this place again.

Went there with a couple of friends for beer and Sushi. What-no draft beer although a full service bar was present. $2 domestics were good. The Sushi specials were "two for one", however, there were all double the price of the regular rolls. I asked the server if the regular rolls appeared to be better and she agreed. She helped... More
