We got there an hour before they opened, The waiter came out, offered us a place to sit in the shade with complimentary beverages: Enough said. As its sibling in Escazu: Excellent attention, great good food. Definitely will return.

Offers daily specials. Great for groups. Everything we ordered was good and fresh. Comparable to a US sushi restaurant. And the prices were great. I think this was probably the best meal we had that was affordable.

We went in and asked whether if we can order take-away. They said yes and that it would take 10 min. It took about 45 minutes. When we were at our hotel, we noticed that we had only received one pair of chopsticks (we were two people). We had also asked how many pieces one roll is and they said... More

Didn't expect a sushi place in Jaco to be that great but it turned out to excellent at Tsunami. The atmosphere is chill and cosy and the sushi was super fresh. We came on Friday and all of our rolls were 50% off. We had a ginger calamari appetizer to start and three sushi rolls that came out to $29... More

Can't beat half price rolls on Friday. Nice atmosphere and attentive staff. Been here a number of times and my favorite roll is the Sunburn. The sashimi is great also, particularly the tuna as it is caught fresh locally. Only downside is it can get really busy when they do the half price rolls, so I try to get there... More

This is my first review on Trip Advisor. That's how great Tsunami Sushi really is!! My favorite rolls are the Spicy Lobster and the Crunch. Also the Dragon, Bruce Lee, Kamikaze and Tempura are delicious too! What makes the dining experience even better is the quality of service. The servers are exceptional, especially Soffy she was not only very friendly... More

We had three rolls-Godzilla sunburn and mcquire. Didn't care for the McGuire roll too much. The sunburn was very good and the Godzilla was good but had a little too much rice in it for my taste. Service was excellent and it was a rainy night so we enjoyed staying out of the rain for awhile and watching the view... More

Never thought that the sushi in Jaco would be good, but Tsunami proved me wrong. I ate here twice and both times the rolls did not disappoint. Also, both times I went to Tsunami, I went with large groups (+8) and everyone walked away happy. Note that the sushi is pretty expensive, but if you are around town on Wednesdays,... More

Best sushi, best prices (half price roll night!). Great sushi, good wine, and the chicken teriyaki is excellent also. The atmosphere is awesome, and the owner is friendly and informative. The staff is fun and friendly. You won't want to miss out on experiencing Tsunami while vacationing in Jaco, or if you're a full-time resident. We can't wait to return...
