Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant used to be very good, but not any more. The sushi was tasteless and did not seem fresh. There was no sushi chef in the restaurant so I suspect the sushi was not freshly cut. All in all a bad meal. Aside from the food, the restaurant is in need of updating."

  • "A cozy spot for groups of 2-4. Great service continually filling our waters and checking in. Loved the new cocktail menu - recommend the Mermaid Daiquiri to anyone who loves coconut and a mini trip to paradise. I'll be back."

  • "Great location, nice for a dinner before a Rams Head show. Decor a little tired (cracked booth cushions). Staff in t-shirts and jeans; not terrible but adds to 'tired' feel. Staff nice enough but also seemed...tired. Food was a little pricey but good and decent portion. We were out for a rare evening without our kids...showed up dressed nicely with wife and not thrilled to be seated next to a table with little kids... But staff didn't know that...and family was nice, but kills any thought of a romantic evening. Would go again but for a regular dinner, not on date night."

  • "This was our second visit and the food and service was very good both times. If you are a sushi lover they have a large selection. Entre selection is very good. Nice blend of Asian and continental flavors. Ambience/décor needs a little freshening up. "

  • "Tsunami does not have a sushi bar, which is the first clue that the sushi would not be good. The sushi tasted like it came from a grocery store. Our server told us that most of their business comes from late night dining, which means you have to be drunk to enjoy their food - second clue. Third clue was the restaurant was empty at 7pm on a beautiful Saturday night. Needless to say, I will not be eating there any time soon."

  • "The food at tsunami never disappoints...from sushi selections to the main dishes, everything was perfectly prepared and presented. While the noise level is high, the food and service are more than worth making a reservation!"

  • "I have dined their many times. I had a reservation, they seemed to be rushing the food out. Usually they provide a bottle of water, this time they didn't, don' t know why this time was different. The place was about 20% full! many tables were available. I was seated in the back. Very, very disappointed. The waiter did not bring out all that was ordered, had to remind him. The one thing that is good is the food. I will start using carry out."

  • "This was my first (and last) visit here. Other reviewers have noted that it no longer lived up to its prior glories. I found the Asian "fusion" menu very limited and usually a fusion of elements that left me shaking my head in wonder. The dish I had was bland and somewhat odd; it would have been perfectly acceptable acceptable in a Chinese carry-out, but not in a place whose prices promise, but do not deliver, much more. Perhaps it has become a tourist spot, where diners do mot return because they were just visiting. I live here and will not eat there again. The only bright spots were the wines by the glass, which were good, and the service, which was attentive."

  • "I've been to Tsunami a few times before and had an amazing time. Last night, I was less than impressed with the food quality. We ordered a few rolls and and some apps. The rice seemed either old or under cooked, because it was hard and very dry."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "At Tsunami we tend to make a small plate meal out of sushi and starters. The sushi -- very fresh. A spinach salad -- delicious. Kobe sliders -- my wife, the beef-eater, loved them. The mussels were okay -- not the best in Annapolis. But the curry soup just didn't live up to expectations -- not the hearty, warming dish we envisioned for a cold and windy night. The noise level -- they should turn down the volume just a bit."

  • "Just a fabulous, interesting, enticing menu. Bison short rib with sirachi mac and cheese and braised brussel sprouts with bacon is delicious. Tandoori salmon is a clear winner. Cocktail menu is fun. Best Manhattan (357) in town to be honest. They did not have it this time but they made one just as special. Sushi menu is a twist from what you see elsewhere. Just a happening place. Get the Living Social deal when it comes around, you won't be disappointed."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Love this place! Food is always awesome. Stay away from the brussel sprouts though. I love brussel sprouts, but these were a big, soggy, stinky swing and a miss. The sushi is top rate though!"

  • "Though not a family restaurant, we took our kids and we all loved it. Food was excellent. Noisy and small, but we had a good time."

  • "The food(sushi) was great as always and we also had a good bottle if chilled sake. I made reservations for 5 people and they squeezed us onto a table for four by adding a chair. Meanwhile a boot just across from us stayed empty for most of the time we were there. 2nd time that has happened to us!"

  • "The music selections and noise level chosen by the restaurant overpowered the food which was quite tasty. I would return again to give the restaurant another try. The couple seated beside us were also unimpressed with the music choice and volume. They assured us it wasn't usually like this."

  • "We had dinner on NYE. The food was great, the service was very good but the music was way too loud! We couldn't carry a conversation at our table without yelling at each other. It was our first time there, so I don't know if it's always that loud or whether it was because of it being New Years Eve. Overall it was a good experience and I'd go back again."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Having lived in Annapolis for 20 years it still surprises me how few good restaurant options we have. Tsunami's is one of the good ones -- although it depends on what you order. They have a grilled Chilean sea bass which is great - every time I order something else I regret it. Their soups, including the coconut curry one on the menu are usually very good. The sushi -- not so much. But this place has some energy, some very good and innovative dishes and they are nice and accommodating. And it's in a good location downtown on the edge of the historic district."

  • "My wife & I had a great evening at Tsunami. The service and ambiance were perfect for us. I had the miso glazed sea bass & my wife had the bison short ribs.....both meals were very tasty & wonderfully presented. The atmosphere was fairly loud/noisy so if you're looking or a quiet, romantic evening, then this restaurant may not be for you. Overall, however, we enjoyed our night & experience."

  • "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."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "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 ;)"

  • "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."

  • "Not sure we would return. We dine out frequently in Annapolis and decided to try Tsunami for our 17th anniversary. We were seated in a dark corner behind the bar. Very disappointed. My husband was facing a wall so in the end he sat next to me kind of made conversation a little more difficult. The food was good. Service was fair."

  • "Went there for dinner with the hubby using a Livingsocial coupon. The entire time we were eating the sushi, we commented on how bad the rice was. I don't know how they cooked it but it definitely lacked water or was a few day-old rice because it was so hard we could barely chew it. The sea urchin nigiri didn't taste fresh either. The avocado salad with sweet miso dressing was overly sweet that it tasted like syrup. The only saving grace was the chef's sashimi 9 piece. The salmon was very fresh and melted in our mouths. The vibe of the restaurant was pretty cool though. A good place for a date night or dinner with friends. Too bad the food is not that great."
