The uber cool sushi bar and grill concept that began in Lafayette in 2000 and made it mark in Baton Rouge in 2005 is now a New Orleans destination. Our menu ranges from simple expected traditional sushi to westernized hybrid sushi to grill dishes that make for a great dining experience. On the 1st floor of the historic Pan Am building on St Charles & Poydras we are walking distance from your hotel, apt or sporting event. Make us your sushi spot in the Central Business District.

Terrible service, the worst I’ve had in a long time. Server never apologized for our long wait and didn’t seem to care to even refill our water glasses. This made for a disappointing dining experience.

Been to another in Baton Rouge, service was much more attentive and observant. I kinda got the vibe I was supposed to get up and make things happen for myself. Which I have no problem with if I was part of the staff . Your chicken fried rice was MEH , chicken to over cooked , but we didn’t say anything about it because we know not to sink a ship 🚢 that is already filling with water 💦. You have a great place and I know this from going to your other one . I think 🤔 that y’all have a beautiful interior , now building a staff that enjoys your concept would be icing on the cake 🍰.

I came to Tsunami on Saturday evening (May 12, 2018) and sat at the sushi bar. I just wanted to express my appreciation for the sushi chefs for their interactive and fun attitudes. They were all great and accommodating - even when both my boyfriend and myself were picky about certain items in a roll. They had no problem customizing. The layout of the restaurant itself is beautiful and industrial. I loved it. I really had a great time and the food was phenomenal. Next time I am in New Orleans I will be coming back! Thanks everyone.

Food was ok but not worth the price. Clearly you’re paying for location. 3ppl - one drink each and sushi: $200!

Seated promptly with reservation. I was not thrilled with the seating arrangement as we were placed in between two other couples and the proximity is very close. However, key highlights the sushi rolls were very good. We tried the veggie, spicy tuna and transbestbite. The trans best bite was our favorite. The spicy tuna had a nice kick to it but not overpowering. The veggie had a good mix of fresh veggies and nice crunch. The miso soup was very good as well. Service was spot on. Our server Tori was excellent.

We decided to move off of the tourist dining path and try something in the CBD for lunch. Tsunami was a great find. The menu had a nice variety, and all of the dishes we sampled were flavorful and well prepared.

This is our second time eating here but unfortunately we had a much better experience the first time we came. The service was very poor, could not get a drink, we had to call a manager to get better service and to get our food and when it came out it was so so.... in order to have return customers and must be consistency in service and food

Fantastic Food and a great price! Honestly we were looking for a detox from the friend food capital of the US. This was the perfect solution. The rolls are creative and fun (try the green dragon for dessert) and the dishes are huge portions!

Very good sushi. However, sushi looked a bit dull as if it was not really fresh. However the taste was excellent. I liked the brown rice option. The wait staff went out of there way to check for gluten-free options. A bit pricey, but worth it for the flavors. Arigato nei gozaimasu !!!

I love sushi & although Tsunami was good, It wasn't the best that I have had. I have gone places where I crave something on the menu that makes me want to go back. Nothing stood out on this meal. We did order a lot off the happy hour menu.....but even their specialty rolls were just ok.
