Sushi is outstanding with sushi chefs who are committed to delivering unique and exceptional sushi rolls. Fish is always fresh and you can watch them bone the fish at the sushi bar, inbetween making rolls. Highly recommended. Great outside seating in summer, spring and fall.

Stopped-in with friends while on a business trip. We decided to just try anything and everything was amazing. A MUST try is the Elk sushi. Brilliant.

We started with small plates. The Calamari was light and flavor full. The Salmon filled Rangoon and the Beef were terrific. We enjoyed the Sushi rolls that were fresh and well portioned. Our service was on point and it was nice to not have to wait forever for the rolls to show up.

Four of us went to Tsunami Sugarhouse on Sunday evening. The place wasn't crowded, yet there were enough diners make it a fun atmosphere. We had a variety of rolls -- TIger, Aloha, one with habanero sauce, and two others off the specials menu. They were all delicious. The flavored sakes (hot) were an interesting switch on a sushi staple.... More

The food here is fresh and excellent. The rolls and Sashimi are very fresh and appetizing. The box meals here are also excellent though I would go with rolls if you want a bit more to eat. I don't think you could go wrong no matter what you select. The service and atmosphere are very nice. The dining room and... More

They even have a terrific homemade tasting desserts. We had the chocolate truffle cheesecake. The service... More

I ordered sashimi which was of good quality but it was expensive, especially the uni. The chef was great and made up an excellent roll, I think it was calledThe Executive.

I didn't love this place, but I didn't dislike it either. The sushi was good. The service was fine. It was a bit expensive. We left $70 poorer, and not quite full. My favorite roll was the Lobster. Chances are, I won't go back, not because I was disappointed, but rather it just wasn't my favorite. If I could give... More
