We went to Tsunami for the first time last night and we will definitely be going back! The service was excellent, Ben came to our table and explained the daily specials and welcomed us as we sat down. The atmosphere of the place was very nice and there was a nice blend of people from casual to dinner attire. The... More

Tsunami is my favorite place to go with my husband for date night in Memphis. Tonight was no exception! We have tried many things over time, but we almost always get the pot stickers as we did last night. Another staple of mine are the scallops. Last night on the small plates menu they were served in a cream sauce... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Memphis! It's a smallish place but has great art and cool decor. I could eat nothing but their potsticker appetizers and ginger donuts, but their entrees are great as well. Try the seabass, the scallops, or one of the small plates if you're not a big eater.

The restaurant seems to be up to date, good accurate food, but we were very dissappointed from the service. first of all we were seated in a room with nobody else, while there was another room full of people dining. We assumed that there will be people coming, but all of them were seated in the other room. It was... More

The scallops were possibly the best I have ever had and the mussel appetizer was light, tasty and just the right spicy.

Tsunami was the spot of choice for seven friends to meet for a retirement celebration and general fun time together. We were seated in a comfortable area with plenty of room. Service was spot on - very patient as we took a few attempts to be ready to order at every step. She continued to be a great combination of... More

We always go to Tsunami for special occasions because this stalwart of Cooper-Young's restaurant explosion never disappoints. Chef Ben Smith's riffs on Pacific Rim flavors are always fresh and exciting, from the ijakaya (appetizers) to the small plates and mains. His signature is the sea bass on black rice, but we also love the Asian nachos, beet salad, shrimp potstickers,... More
