I dined at Tsunami's Riverpark location in South Jordan with my wife on Friday night, June 8. Overall the experience was good and the food was good.
My wife made a reservation for 6:30pm. We arrived a few minutes prior to our reserved time and found the restaurant had many empty tables. The hostess led us to one of the many empty tables whereupon my wife inquired if we could be seated in a booth instead. Although there appeared to be several vacant booths, we were told that there were none. Apparently, when making a reservation, we needed to include a request for a booth if one was desired.
Tsunami is a sushi restaurant, but also has a fairly extensive menu of other options for those -- like me -- who don't particularly like sushi. My wife ordered three different sushis: TNT (a spicy tuna roll loaded with jalapenos and wasabi), Aloha (another spicy tuna roll which also includes avocado and mango), and the Sugar House ( a salmon sushi ). My wife is trying to convert me to the sushi fold, so I shared a couple of her sushi, and found both to be very good. One of them even featured a tempura shrimp in the middle of the roll!
For my dinner, I ordered a teriyaki chicken. I thought the flavoring of the chicken was perfect, but it was slightly overcooked, although not too dry to be unacceptable. My meal was accompanied by an ample helping of rice and some tempura vegetables -- which were very delicious!
I also want to mention that waters were never less than half full. The restaurant seemed to have an employee on staff whose sole job it was to fill waters. Very nice!
As for the atmosphere, Tsunami is a pretty casual place. We expected it to be a little more upscale. The staff are dressed smartly, but most of the customers here on the evening we visited were wearing blue jeans -- or even shorts. It's not a place for a romantic evening, but, if you're looking for a good meal, Tsunami is a good choice.
