Great atmosphere!

The tempora is the best! I love the atmosphere. The service is always fun and seems adventurous, and the staff is always polite and very tentative...without hovering. Great drinks when you're out with friends and nice, cozy-feel tables when you're out with family during the week! Amazing food!

After the movies my wife and I wanted sushi and well the best lace in the Upstate is Tsunami. When they are busy they open the room behind the bar up and we had no trouble being seated. Our server this night was Hope I who was helpful and did a great job taking care of us. Another plus about... More

We use to enjoy Tsunami but ended up getting food poison here! Shocking because it's always so busy - and loud! Can't recommend.

Fresh sashimi, innovative rolls and decent service. Priced about right for what you order and the wait time isn't as bad as other sushi restaurants in town. Well recommended.

The best sushi I've ever eaten anywhere....and that's a bunch! We enjoy eating here as often as we can. Downtown Greenville, hands-on owners, great service...equals incredible meals. Something for everyone, even if you don't eat sushi.

Plain and simple, Tsunami is excellent sushi and it's number one in the Upstate. We've tried other sushi restaurants in the Upstate, but none compares. Others have tried to copy their Baked Mussels, but no on makes them as good. Also, try the Poseidon and Centipede rolls, outstanding. Our server this time was Kristen who was attentive and very helpful.

No question Tsunami has the best sushi, sashimi and other Japanese dishes in the SC Upstate. My wife and I have tried many of them and this is far above all others. The atmosphere of the entire place is up scale Japanese Sushi Bar restaurant and its set up in 4 sections so if you're there to chat and eat... More

It was ok but not great. I have heard that it was soooo good but I was not impressed. Hate hate hate to say but I would rather have Joy of Tokyo for the $$$. Thai Cuisine in Simpsonville Has better entrees and Sushi. Sorry tsunami. Service was good but had to pay $5 to park and overpriced food. Sorry.

The ambiance is nice, great for a date, or a client meeting, but crowded. Almost uncomfortably crowded on weekends. Although I don't eat sushi, a friend and executive chef thought that the Sushi was some of the best in Greeville. I had the wonton soup and the fried tofu which I really enjoyed. The service is only mediocre. Its just... More
