Diner Reviews
  • "So, I have always heard great reviews of this restaruant so I wanted to be really romantic with my girlfriend and treat her to a dinner here the night before Easter. I made reservations the night before for 7:30 pm. So we got our table quick from reservations and then the he was sorry and gave us 2 drinks on the house. We then ordered the food like 10 minutes later and ended up waiting 50 minutes for our food to be prepared. It was extremely long and my girlfriend noticed about 5 groups of people that got there food before us that came after us. I had to wave our waitress down and she did not even apologize for the long wait. It turned my romantic night into having a agitated girlfriend and ruined my dinner romantic plans. "

  • "Last several visits the service has been off and I think the quality of the food is not as good as it used to be but the prices have gone up. Still an excellent view and atmosphere."

  • "The manager is to be commended. He/she hires and trains excellent wait staff and the food is consistently good. I've never been disappointed. And the view...wow!"

  • "The staff is great, very accommodating, We brought a birthday cake. Food was delicious really fresh and well prepared. Two in our party had something other than sushi and it was very good. Very nice bar ( not large) but great drinks and great service without pressure. I would definitely return."

  • "Great food, great service, with amazing views. Only complaint is the noise level. When I arrived they informed me my table wasn't ready yet but would be ready in about 15 minutes. Although that rather annoyed me since I had reservations, I went to the bar to order drinks for the wait. Wasn't 45 seconds before I received a text message informing me that my table was ready. Our waitress was attentive without being a bother and very knowledgeable. I highly enjoyed this restaurant for date night. It was kind of loud, and at times I felt I needed to holler to my date, but the noise level is worth the experience!"

  • "I ordered the Kabuki Roll, Caterpillar Roll, and Dragon Roll. My brother had the Michael Doumit Roll, Sahbum Roll, and Spicy Roll. The sushi was okay but it did not taste fresh, which was disappointing. For dessert, my bro ordered the Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream, which was too ice-y and watered down. I tried to order the Pancific Bread Pudding but couldn't so I ordered the Tsinful Chocolate Tsunami. Unfortunately I am lactose-intolerant so I asked our server Shelby if I could substitute the ice cream portion for something else. She very graciously suggested the Honeydew Pineapple sorbet and even had it served separately, so that it wouldn't clash in flavors. The lava cake was good. The sorbet was good, but had a weird texture."

  • "They were packed-- had to wait about 10 minutes on the 6:30 reservation. Service and Food were very good. However, the dining experience felt rushed. Food came out too fast, and we missed the leisurely pace of prior visits. We were out of there before 7:30, which seemed to be their goal.... In and out in an hour. I recommend trying Tsunami on a non-weekend night so you can enjoy your time there."

  • "Great location atop the Shaw Center in Downtown Baton Rouge. Restaurant has a beautiful rooftop terrace available for dining for for sitting and soaking in great views of the river and downtown Baton Rouge. Food is excellent with a huge selection of sushi appropriate for every taste. Service was friendly and capable. My only wish would be for a more expanded wine list. Highly Recommend."

  • "We had heard many good things about this restaurant. It met all our expectations. Their menu can accommodate a wide group - I wanted to order the ribeye, but decided to do sushi instead."

  • "It would be nice if a restaurant was going to be closed to inform the patrons before they arrive for their reservation. Why get my contact information if you're not going to use it?"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "I cannot give a proper review because I booked a reservation and showed up only for the resteraunt to be closed. This was very inconvenient for my party and I have been very upset that it could happen. There were other people there as well who had reservations only to be turned away. It would be wise to know when resteraunts will be closed as to avoid these problems in the future."

This place isnt really equipped for groups bigger than about 10-12 and they only have 1 or two places to seat those people so make reservations in advance! Love this place!"

The service was wonderful, the choice of sushi rolls and entrees outstanding, and the presentation very good. It was a little bit pricey, but worth it for a special occasion."

  • "Treated my daughter to a birthday lunch here. Not very crowded for lunch. Food and service were superior. View is always excellent, especially for watching sunsets. We were told the bread pudding was a new edition. It was super delicious, as was all of our food items. A definite must-do if you've never been here."

  • "Set menu for evening was not a good idea. Portions were very small. Most dishes didn't have enough flavor. The fish used in dishes look old and tasted bad. Best thing about dinner was the ice cream dessert. Not worth the priced charged per person for meal. They should just stick with the regular menu and I would have probably give it a thumbs up. Wasted time and money here NYE!"

The only bit of food we had a problem with was the asian flan for dessert, it did not won/t to stay on your spoon."

Maybe one day we'll branch out & order some different things, but, hey; we know what we like & like what we know. eggplant miso, panko oysters & the Michael Doumit (fried crab roll). Pretty much a 5-star evening!"

They have a crab salad on the menu that was incredible!! Decent wine list, and the service was impeccable!!"

We had the Hung Lo roll at the reccomendation of the server, the drinks were great, the chef waved at us after we sent a message complimenting him on the Chilean Sea Bass and the Salmon entrees. They packed the dessert for us to go, The entire atmosphere, food, and service were outstanding."
