Second floor sushi bar with a good view of the main thoroughfare, if you can get there early enough. The sushi rolls are extremely good, and they have a half price night on Wednesdays and Fridays. It will get crowded before dark on these nights. Good menu selection besides sushi rolls. Full service bar with mixed drinks, wines and beers.... More

We used to go to Tsunami Sushi every time we went to Jaco. Then as we tried to explore new restaurants and read the TripAdvisor reviews we started trying other sushi places when we went. None of the others really compared. They were all small and hot and felt like you were eating street food...all at similar prices to Tsunami.... More

Our favorite sushi spot. We go on Wednesday or Friday for 1/2 price sushi specials. We like our sushi spicy - and they do it right. Great service, good food, and fair prices.

Seriously this is not a joke. I never liked sushi mostly because everywhere I went was bland and boring. And frankly, I still don’t like most sushi restaurants. But the California style fusion is incredible. The manager Matt made our time so enjoyable so I want to thank him and will see him again on our trip back next year... More

Great ambience either eating at bar or tables. Attentive service particularly Erick at the bar and the girl on reception. Great for individuals or groups. You will feel at home. Two visits in four days. What's not to like. Great sushi. Will be back.

Visited when they just opened. Had the place to ourselves and the server was great! Young woman that was patient as we practiced our Spanish. She spoke good English as well. Sushi rolls were amazing, recommend the mahi mahi sashimi. Mmmm. I dropped my napkin on the ground and the server ran over to offer me a new one. Water... More

Great greeting by owner and all the staff. Good sushi and Japanese food, the chef was amazing artistic and we were the last ones to come in so like we had a personal chef. We felt a little rushed out in the end as the A/C was turned off at the end. Very very good food. Rated #1 in trip... More
