Don't sleep on the beef tenderloin
Placed looked pretty non-descript when we walked in. Service was good but not impeccable. Food was top notch. Ordered the Tsunami wedge - fresh and tasty. Ordered several sushis rolls - all were first rate. The Pepper Seared Beef Tenderloin was to die for. It was our waiters recommended dish. Would highly recommend ordering. Some of the best beef I've eaten this year.

We had another great time
We had another great time at this Annapolis gem! We went to Tsunami to celebrate my wife's birthday with my son and daughter-in-law, and we thoroughly enjoyed it, from the appetizers of Ahi tuna and Etamame, to the cocoanut fish soup, to the various main courses and sushi that my son and his wife ordered. We even had a wonderful dessert of Creme brulee! The service was wonderful and all was simply great. We will definitely go here again.

Tsunami is definitely a spot
Tsunami is definitely a spot to hit in Annapolis. The food is delightful--well prepared and tasty. The problem with the ambience is the noise level. It is very loud in the restaurant. Other than that, It is definitely a place to keep on your list

This is still one of the best
This is still one of the best Restaurants in Annapolis with the very best bartenders.

We've been to tsunami sushi
We've been to tsunami sushi a few times now, and we've consistently had a pleasant experience. The food is always good, and the cocktails are delicious.The atmosphere of this restaurant is amazing.

Great sushi in a great little town!
We went on a newly married date night here, and used a groupon. The sushi was great, and very decently priced! We left stuffed. It was packed, so it was extremely loud, however they played oldies (Late 50's - 70's) the whole evening which we thoroughly enjoyed! It made us wish they had a dance floor. Although it was packed, our waiter did his best to continually frequent out table and keep us happy. He gave us great help when ordering, and was super friendly! Sushi was excellent, and we will definitely be going back to check out other great menu items we didn't get to try!

Tuna sliders were great -
Tuna sliders were great - and the sushi was very good this visit (no crusty rice); that said - man the music needs to be taken down a notch in this small space - and please put some money back into your interior. It still looks like Day 1 - which wasn't good to begin with - splatter on the walls and windows, everything looks like it needs a good scrubbing and a fresh coat of paint.

Great for visitors!
Great food, the best Vietnamese Spring Roll I've EVER had. It has a mostly "hipster" vibe but I think I'd go back (or order out at least) because the food was good. The sushi we ordered (spicy tuna and California roll) were mediocre. The tuna roll had the "spice" added just on the top, making it hard to eat since it was all in one area.
Service was fantastic, and the people were very on top of getting us more water, seating us and making sure everything was what we wanted.

Very good food. Creative rolls.
Very good food. Creative rolls. VERY "Energetic" ambiance (ie. loud).

Tsunami has been spotty as far as service and food consistency/quality (the Met roll has really gone downhill since I first started purchasing it years ago) the last few times I've gone, so I've been reluctant to patronize lately, but this trip was wonderful! We sat at the bar and had a great time. Service was great, food was great (even the Metropolitan roll was back to it's wonderfully crunchy interior and BOTH sauces were included, thank god!).... I think we'll be making Mondays a regular thing!

still one of the best in Annapolis
The food in Tsunami is really, really good. One quibble -- they skimped on the fish they used as a wrapper for the roll I ordered so you could barely tell that there was any fish in the dish. The pot stickers were still outrageous.
4/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
My friend & I sat up at the bar area for a light lunch and enjoyed the following food items: Spicy Tuna Roll, Bagel Roll, and Chicken Bento Box. The food was very fresh and delicious! I would recommend the hot green tea to go along with the sushi.

Great Place for Sushi
Tsunami is not the best Sushi restaurant, but it is a Great Sushi restaurant and with the ambience, the good service and the location, I cannot see it possible to ever have a bad experience. Not only do I enjoy going to Tsunami for dinner, but I also go there for lunch a couple of times a month and have always enjoyed myself. You just can't go wrong.
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Having now gone twice--first time for restaurant week--we have enjoyed our visits immensely. Food is always top-notch and the sake flows warmly. We will go back for more!

New favorite sushi restaurant
I loved the food, it was more fresh that other sushi restaurants I've been. I will definitely come back!

The bartender was very helpful
The bartender was very helpful even though we were not at the bar...sushi and fried rice..delicious!!!!

Very fresh food
I hadn't had sushi for nine months while pregnant so I selected Tsunami for my husband's birthday dinner. The food was great. Incredibly fresh, seasoned well and the presentation was great. Very reasonably priced and I loved the 80s music that was playing when we arrived.
On the flip side, I put on Open Table that it was my husband's birthday and the hostess that seated us said happy birthday but beyond that they didn't do anything special. Plus our waitresses had two larger parties come in sons he got a little slow with us, but she did apologize. Not even a free scoop of ice cream. But overall it was good, my hubs enjoyed and we loved the neighborhood it was in.

Sushi, drinks, & desert
I took foodie 2 friends who were visiting to Saturday night dinner. I had been once before to Tsunami Annapolis and recalled it being yummy. You must try the tuna lollipops in sea salt: divine! And the old bay & basil edamame: such a unique flair to a traditional sushi side dish.
Be warned the spicy tuna is rolled in old bay which took away any flavor of the spicy tuna roll. We were all disappointed. The maui roll was delish on a hot day! The salmon sashimi was also a hit! I think it was a Phoenix roll (definitely a hot name) it was covered with shriracha...so it is for the spicy food lovers only.
Desert was also excellent! 3 large, complex deserts - gingerbread cake with peanut butter ice cream & berry coulis was unforgetable!

A favorite place in Annapolis
We live nearby and we have loved Tsunami year after year. We enjoy the appetizers as much as the entrees, and there are several cocktails we favor, including the Hello Sailor and Basil Holy Water (made with sprigs of fragrant basil leaves and sweetened with stevia). Craft beer list has expanded and contracted from time to time, right now looks good again. Servers are often great, never less than competent. It is a noisy place with lots of music and energy in the front where the bar is located, but there are tables in the back where a conversation is easy. Have not tried to sit outdoors (there aren't that many days in Maryland where one wants to be outdoors unless you're dressed for sports or yardwork) but I believe there is seating there.

Girls Night Out!!
We got together to go out to dinner. First we had a 7:30 reservation, we were able to call and move our reservation to a later time and they were very flexible for us. We arrived and were seated right away. We ordered from the sushi menu and some appetizers which were all very delicious. I had the Bison short ribs with the macaroni & cheese and brussell sprouts (sidenote - I hate brussell sprouts but these were very delicious). My other friend had the scallops and they were delicious as well. The cocktails were good but I would have like to see some traditional cocktail choices. After all the food we ate, we shared a warm brownie and that was ending of a great evening. The place is rather noisy and bustling. We would go back.

our #1 GoTo spot in Annapolis
if you like hot and spicy--try the best drink EVER--The Green Regal. Tequila with basil and lime with a jalapeño sour mix ..... awesome! Also try the Hamachi Sashimi--yellow tail tuba with slices of jalapeño....heaven! also love the Deluxe Vietnamese Sprong Rolls with the 2 sauces on the side. There's no rice, because they are wrapped in lettuce. Delicious!

Great Dining Again
My wife and I have been to Tsunami about 3 or 4 times before, and we always enjoy the experience! Really great menu to choose from, whether main course or just appetizers they way we sometimes do. And everyone is always very friendly and the service is very good.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service better than usual
I eat at Tsunami once every week to two weeks because it's one of the best spots food-wise in Annapolis. Love the food--sushi, apps, entrees, drinks, wine selection--it's all good. Only usual negative is that unless you sit at the bar, the service almost always leaves something to be desired, however, this trip, (maybe because it was a bit slow), our server was wonderful and attentive. Even helped us decide on a wine to share (my mom is a chardonnay person and I am anything but). Wanted to acknowledge the good service we received this trip!

Great sushi and service
We love making a meal of sushi and starters, especially the coconut curry soup and the tofu with fish flakes, delicious! The popcorn shrimp is also awesome. Great service like always.

Our local favorite!
We have to go to Tsunami about once a week. Crave what they do so well! Great vibe. Great service. Great sushi. Great drinks. So much variety. We love it!

Ambiance galore. Informed servers. Delicious food. Beautiful presentation.

Always a great experience
We go to tsunamis for dinner several times a year, and it is always a great experience. The sushi is phenomenal, the cocktails are creative and delicious, and the service is always exceptional. My husband and I always struggle to find a place that consistently provides that triad within a dining experience. Tsunamis never disappoints!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The edemame with old bay is tasty and the MET fires are great. We had sushi and it was delicious..
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding Sushi! So good I wanted to go back the next night
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the sushi here - especially the Garden Roll. It is the best! Although the sushi list is smaller than going to a typical sushi restaurant everything is great. Never had a bad meal. We called ahead of time to have a bottle of champagne at the table when we arrived (suprise for a friends birthday). When we arrived it was on ice at our table and someone was there to pop it immediately. The gentleman who served the champagne was super friendly (maybe he is the manager?) and has been this way everytime I have dined here.

LOVE love LOVE
I love this place! The food is fresh and fabulous! This was the first time I took my
Husband. He have compliments to the chef while we were there. The drinks were great!
I recommend this to anyone that wants to go to a hip spot!

Tsunami is fabulous and never fails to impress! The sushi is amazing, and so are the special drinks and entrees. The West Street Cocktail is not to be missed. We started with some edamame (splurge on the chili & garlic, they are amazing!) and two very fresh, yummy rolls. Highly recommend the avocado salad, mussels(!), the salmon entree as well as the scallop entree. The entire night was topped off by excellent waitstaff. We had a waiter who clearly had half the dining room area, and still managed to stay on top of our drinks, plates and food. We'll be back soon ;)

Best Sushi in Annapolis
Tsunami is small, tables are very close together, it's noisy, but...the atmosphere is cool and the food is amazing! We had several small plates: lobster and scallop potstickers, edamame with chili and garlic, tuna sashimi, Tsunami roll, cauliflower, spinach and chick peas (veggie side), and beef tataki. Plenty of food for 2 people. The sashimi and the roll were really fresh and delicious. The edamame was the best I've ever had. And the potstickers were awesome. Really, everything was good. They have a good drink menu, but we opted for hot sake. Service was very good. This is our second time at Tsunami and we look forward to returning.
