“Nice sushi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Overall we enjoyed our visit at Tsunami. One of the fried rolls tasted a bit wierd but the others were nice enough :) Our waitress was very friendly but unfortunately forgot our starters which was a bit dissapointing. Nothing spectacular but nothing wrong with it either... definitely a good choice if wanting a quick bite on Jacos main street... also nice they offer the rolls 50% off on certain days...good deal!

“Great dinner, attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

We were greeted very nicely and given our choice of tables. We ordered a selection of cut rolls and all were very nicely prepared and delicious. We had numerous employees serving us and owner/manager came to make sure we were having a nice dinner. I didn't mind it at all but found it an interesting choice, the restaurant was playing house music. LOL, guess that's the Jaco vibe. It was a fun dinner enjoyed by all!

“Great fusion sushi, fresher than any in US, good prices, cool ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This fish has never been frozen, unlike the fish in almost all US sushi restaurants, which is typically flash frozen due to logistical reasons - caught and distributed on a scale where its impractical to get it to the consumer on the same day. Tsunami gets most of its fish from local fishing fleets through small local distributors, so it is super fresh. Reasonably priced, imaginatively prepared - i would eat here 5 times a week if I could afford it. On a budget? Shrimp tempura is a good deal. There are also a couple dishes that come with a mountain of fried rice and are cheap.

“Good choice for dinner in Jaco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

At the risk of sounding like a sushi snob let me say that the sushi here was pretty good. I've experienced better (and a whole lot worse). Probably the highlight was having marlin for the first time. Not exactly something you can readily get in the States. The restaurant is centrally located and the interior is nice and modern. I would likely go back if I find myself back in Jaco.
