I went here for lunch while I was out shopping. I sat at the sushi bar. I was pleasantly surprised to be engaged in conversation by the sushi chefs and found that they were extremely knowledgable about their trade. I had a small Sapporo to drink and started out with the salmon rangoon. I ordered sashimi: mackerel, sea bass, albacore... More

We visited for a Monday lunch. The staff was very accommodating by moving our table when it unexpectedly grew. We ordered several rolls with multiple interesting ingredients. Unfortunately, all the rolls were fairly bland and tasteless. I'm not sure if this was due to less than fresh fish or a lack of seasoning but everything we ate pretty much tasted... More

It is always a pleasure to go to Tsunami in Sugar house whenever I am in Salt Lake city. I really enjoy seating at the counter and letting the sushis chefs make suggestions of the best options of the day, omakase style. Beside the sushis, my all times favorite is the mussel shooter. The selection of sake is always good... More

This is the first time in all the sushi restaurants we've been in, where one of us had a bone in our sushi. That tells us there is a lack of attention to detail, especially when creating a sashimi plate. The rice on the nigiri was a bit dry and the nori wrapped tuna roll tasted only like nori, not...

We ended up here for my sons bday. We waited a bit for a table but not too long. Servers were really nice and the bartender was great. Cheap cork fee and yummy rolls. We had soup which was delicious and the salads can be passed up.

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.

Thank Jeffery V
