Three of us had a fantastic lunch here last week. The service was outstanding the the sushi was incredible. I loved sitting at the sushi bar and was super impressed when the sushi chef was able to provide me with some Gluten free soya sauce. This place is definitely worth many repeat visits!!

Craving sushi while on business in Lafayette, I found Tsunami on TripAdvisor. Located in downtown, it is a nice area for dinner. My friend and I chose to sit at the preparation table to see the food being prepared. It added to the fun. Really nice ambience with seating upstairs as well. Everything we tried was delicious, some of the... More

This place has the best sushi! Some rolls are on the high end- but once you taste them you know why. I only eat cooked and Dakota likes cooked and raw sushi so we had a good variety. Everything was delicious. And like I said...we are planning our next night out! Our meal was 72.00...so a lil on the expensive... More

The only reason that I ever even tried eating sushi is because my dentist gave me a gift certificate to Tsunami Sushi in appreciation for a referral that I’d made. I reluctantly tried it, and immediately fell in love with the place. I love the service, the food, the atmosphere, . . . whole experience. I’ve tried a few other... More

This is the first place I ever tried sushi and hands down the best! I've eaten at many others around town and out of town still love Tsunami the best. Some of my faves are the Pimp Salad, the Sea Bass entree is excellent if not in the mood for sushi. Love the Green Monster, Zach Special, cucumber wrap, sea... More

The quality of the sushi astounded me, as I did not expect the freshness and creativity of the sushi in a relatively small town. The server was lovely, the location, right downtown, is convenient, with parking on the street, the ambiance is casual, but elegant at the same time. My friend had been there numerous times, and, as a sophisticated... More

Tsunami is Lafayette's culinary escape. It opened in 2000 in the historic downtown arts and entertainment district. It fancies itself as the hippest eatery in the 337. LA flare with southern care!
