“Going downhill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2009

Tsunami has been our favorite restaurant for a sushi fix for many years... but in the past few months it has been a major disappointment. On our last several visits (yes, we kept giving it "one more chance" hoping we were wrong, or it was just a bad night) over the period from Oct 08 through Jan 09 we found the sushi less than fresh (some fish had a metallic taste, the tempura shrimp in one roll on each occasion had the texture of having been made earlier and stored in the frig for a day). We used to brave the incredible noise (which seems to have abated with the diminished crowds-- is it the economy, or are others noticing the quality slip, too?) for the sublime tastes, but no more. It will be a long while before we return (will need someone to say it's good again).

“Good Sushi With the Beautiful People Crowd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2008

This is a trendy local spot. Very good food and service. Nicely done interior, romantic and comfortable. Great spot to dine and drink with a small group of friends or your significant other. Annapolis has a number of very good Sushi restaurants. This is high on the list.
