Manager Jake and his fine staff are always on top of their game here, and it's always a pleasure to dine. The chefs have never failed to deliver great food, and I have tried virtually everything on the menu in my dozen- plus visits. I once had a 3 year absence from Tsunami, and when I went in, not only... More

Four of us met for dinner at Tsunami, a restaurant that we'd never been to before. We enjoyed the modest, but clean ambiance. The food was nicely prepared and presented. Each of us enjoyed our individual choices. The service, on the other hand, was very average and, not a little disappointing.

Nice outside dinning patio, sushi rolls only, not really good Sushime. No Cucumber rolls which are riceless rolls. Rolls have lots of rice, ok priced. Ok for families and dates, not that good for Sushi Eaters. I have been to 200+ sushi restaurants.

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

Fresh taste, beautifully presented, the rice is perfectly cooked and just the right texture. Everything blended together perfectly. After a couple of their specialty rolls which were excellent, we decided to get a plate of their vegetarian tempura it was light ,crispy and delicious. They even have a terrific homemade tasting desserts. We had the chocolate truffle cheesecake. The service... More
