I enjoy going to Tsunamis for a nice, relaxed lunch spot. Takes a little longer than other places but if you have the time, its nice, the service is good and the food is great. I like the bento box.

The best sushi in Baton Rouge. It's location at the top of the Shaw Center in downtown Baton Rouge overlooks the Mighty Mississippi River! You can lounge indoors at the bar (very comfortable) or outside on the deck.

Very pleased with view both in restaurant and outside on deck. Will be back for sunsets and cocktails. But there are better sushi places, even in BR, and service was disappointing. We celebrated my daughter's birthday with cake we brought. Despite paying $10 fee for...More

Best sushi around. Great view of the Mississippi. My sister loved her California roll. I enjoyed my fried pork dumplings.
