Tsunami Sushi is my go-to in town. For starters - I've NEVER had bad sushi here, and my boyfriend is a big guy ergo we order lots of rolls ergo I've tasted a good majority of the menu. It's all delicious. The sushi is always well made (never falls apart or any of that nonsense) and the bites are the... More

This place, though small and kind of out-of-the-way, is hands down the best eatery in SLC. Best brewed green tea in the UNIVERSE and the sushi is excellent. The regular entrees are great, the service is very very very attentive and it's worth every penny to drop in here. I strongly urge anyone to eat here, you can't go wrong!

I was visiting Salt Lake City last month on business. In fact, I just finished 6 consecutive weeks of Tuesdays through Fridays there, and am glad to be home. The 1st week I made the dire mistake of staying at an Extended Stay America, and as a result Hilton got my business for the remainder if the trips. The only... More

Recently visited for a business trip. I do not like fish so instead opted for the sirloin teriyaki. Food was excellent and the atmosphere was upscale. Will visit again!

Living in Utah Valley is a sad thing if you are someone who thinks of "sushi" as something more than rice logs with run of the mill fish in them. To date I have yet to find a restaurant in the entire county that offers uni. Ever. Very frustrating. So on a recent Monday night when husband and self had... More

I moved here from the Pacific Northwest where sushi is fresh and abundant, I have tried sushi establishments all over town and Tsunami (either location) is the place I keep coming back to. My favorite roll is the Seattle roll, my boyfriends is the Aloha. I also recommend salmon Rangoon or sushi poppers for an appetizer.

I eat here frequently. Nice atmosphere, service and very good sushi. The hostesses and wait people are really friendly and efficient. Eat at the bar if you can. These are dedicated and talented chefs. They are also really personable. A great experience, overall.

We have been to both locations and just love this place! Sushi is fresh, inventive rolls, refreshing cocktails, loved every server we have had and they take such care in catering to our children. Even when we get to-go they go above and beyond making sure we have everything! Thank you for a great establishment!
