Great lunch buffet!

Full disclosure - I've only eaten the lunch buffet (numerous times) at this restaurant. It's not the cheapest buffet in town, but the sushi is good and there is plenty of selection, including miso soup and lots of non-sushi items.

I've been to this place a few years ago and it was sort-of-average then. Today, in a bit of a rush and hungry, I saw them advertise an "all you can eat sushi buffet" and, while I am not a great fan of this sort of thing, it seemed like an "OK" option. Boy, what a mistake. First, the "sushi... More

We come here almost every month...when I crave for my Katsudon. Service: The servers are friendly and fast Food: Still my number one for Katsudon. They serve this in the traditional bowl...unlike the other one that I normally go to - that one started serving it on a plate

The wait staff seemed less than a bit friendly this visit despite a non-hurried air in the restaurant. We have been coming here for a long time and still enjoyed the meal; although, I would wish they would update the sushi choices a bit more.

We have been coming here for years back when it was Arigato Sushi and have loved the sushi buffet but my last visit I was less impressed by the wait staff (which was a real strength to this restaurant). Sushi was very good and they could expend the selection a bit more. Overall we certainly got we paid.

Normally I don't like buffets but if I'm going to eat at a buffet, I'll choose Tsunami. The all you can eat buffet has good food on it and unlike a lot of other buffets the food actually goes together. You can order off a menu but if you like sushi, why would you? A great place to meet up... More

Tsunami Restaurant offers excellent customer service but mediocre food. I ordered hibatchi chicken and shrimp and it looked unappetizing (looked like boiled shrimp and chicken). Unfortunately the taste duplicated the appearance of the food. My daughters ordered tempura dinner and both went home with stomach ache. I am sure that was due the food being deep fried. My husband had... More

We only visit here every couple of months but the food is always fresh and the ladies are so friendly and nice especially to our 3 yr old daughter they always take the time to greet us and make her special kids chopsticks. I usually have the bento box and they even substitute an item in it for me. Have... More

I liked the sushi a la carte. The buffet was what you would expect from a buffet--just okay--but for the price it was worth it. I would go back again.

My gosh, never judge a book by it's cover. I almost didn't dine here because it looks so plain from outside. While the decor is not fantastic, my meal was. I ordered vegetable yaki udon at the recommendation of one of their guests and it was filling and delicious.
