This is our favorite Sushi place in the Sugarhouse area. Tsunami is consistently great and always has fun specials. In addition, the service is usually fantastic as well.

Wouldn't you think a sushi restaurant would have some fresh sustainable fish or shellfish to sell? If you don't like deep fried food or farmed fish or tofu, forget this place. You'll pay top dollar for inferior ingredients, including a lackluster alcohol list. Go to Takashi instead!

I didn't expect "real" Sushi in Salt Lake City. This place is all that. The food is shockingly good. All of the fish were truly fresh and the selection was wide ranging. This is obviously a favorite hang out for the young and the hip. So there is a fair amount of noise. the prices are a tad high even... More

I like to go to Tsunami for the Donburi - rice bowl. Salmon for $8! or vegetable tempura for $6! is such a deal. Servers are friendly and accommodated us when we wanted to change which table we were sitting when we found ourselves too cold. I have nothing bad to say about Tsunami.

After a weekend of indulgent eating, we wanted to cleanse our palates with sushi. Tsunami at Sugar House was a great recommendation, especially since their "happy hour" on Sundays from 5-9 pm serve generous discounts on some of their most popular items. The edamame was hot and cooked perfectly and the potstickers (pan fried) were light and delicious. The photograph... More

I think the title says it all. I had an Alaska roll and a Rainbow roll. The fish was tasty and fresh; the rice was moist and sticky. I dropped a piece and it never came apart. My son is a vegetarian and he remarked about the great variety of vegetable rolls; more than even in NY restaurants.

My son took me there for my birthday. The food was fabulous. A bit pricey for a lunch, but quite a treat. We had a toffee cheesecake for dessert and shared it. It was out of this world!

I didn't have high expectations, this is sushi restaurant in a desert, you know... But both food and service were great. Seriously, one of the best sushi I had, including Japan.
