    The Tsunami has been a favorite of ours for a long time. We lived in Baton Rouge years ago and now live an hour away but we still make a trip to Baton Rouge to eat here since the food is that good. My wife loves this place.

    The one reason to visit Tsunami is the spectacular river view. it can't be beat. That said, the quality of the food is not what it used to be, and the ambience, which used to be incredibly chic, is now looking shabby (lots of holes and tears in the bench seating upholstery). Sushi is good--Lava Rolll is a favorite), but with so many sushi choices now in Baton Rouge, it does not rank at the top for me any longer. Of the 3 entrées we ordered, the Shrimp Ebi and grits was good, the Sea Bass, not so much. Service was friendly but not timely. Save Tsunami when the view with a good cocktail is a must.

    Decided to book this restaurant on the day, was really after a nice view overlooking the mississippi and was not disappointed. We ordered three types of sushi and all tasted amazing, the atmosphere was pleasant to make a beautiful evening. The service was a little slow at first but nothing to have effected our evening, will definitely be coming by again when I'm in the area.

    It has an amazing atmosphere with the small bar area and the dinning room around the corner. You just feel apart of something special when you're there with the incredible view of the river and the food, drinks and service add to the feel of it all. The only thing I might have a down point on is the hostess. There was a very rude male hostess that was soon forgotten though.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    Great service and great sushi. My only complaint is that they do not have a traditional spicy tuna roll! The dynamite roll is marinated white fish and tuna, but it is just spicy and bland. It had no flavor.

    If you get there enough to see the sunset, you're in for a treat. It's absolutely gorgeous. Try to take your eyes off the tasty rolls, gyoza-pan fried dumplings (my mouth is watering), mochi, etc. just for a moment, look out the window and for a moment feel that all is right with the world.

    Tsunami is far and away has the best dining ambiance in Baton Rouge. The panoramic view of the river and the patio are inspirational. It is certainly an extraordinary environment for a romantic dinner. There are better sushi restaurants in town but they do not compare with Tsunami due to it's visual impact; however, the food was particularly good this time. Much better than it has been in the past.

The waitress was very attentive. At the end of the meal, they sent out a dessert for my son's birthday. I was amazed. I'll be back and will highly recommend this restaurant.
