Food was just not tasty - it was mushy and just not the best sushi we’ve ever had. Our server was new, but was not attentive at all either. Just not the greatest experience.

Service was good. Overall the food was fair, sushi rolls were priced a little bit higher then other places and tasted just okay for how busy it was! I would recommend you call ahead for reservations.

I had 5pm reservations. We weren't seated until 5:10 and it was super empty. Then our waitress took a half hour to come help us. She apologized and said she was in a staff meeting and no one told her she had a table, yet other tables were being served. It was disappointing as it was for my mom's 76th birthday and she had to be somewhere by 6:30pm.

We promise to address your comments with our staff, as there is no reason that you should have had to wait 30 minutes for service. We hope that you will try us again - we know you will have a much better dining experience.

Heard great things about it so went went last Sunday. Server was ok, but really doidnt explain the menu. Everything had onions which we cant have. Vegatables were 95% onions, and this was tempura. We asked why no red or green peppers which is normal, and were told they dont have them. Not what we expected and very frustrating. Will not go back.

Sushi and appetizer was great. But my entree took forever to come and it came out sloppy and my salmon was super dry.

3 of the 4 meals were very substandard for this restuarant. We have all been here several times and have really enjoyed the food. The short ribs were tough and not very tasty. The sushi was not very good. We will try again and hope the food is as we have enjoyed in the past.

Get a reservation if possible. Especially on a weekend. We had a res and got in 2 minutes after walking in the door. The waitress was super friendly, and able to recommend favorites. Yes, its a little more expensive, but worth it. Also, It's known for fish and sushi but I don't like either. That should tell you how good their other stuff is. Try the short ribs or the pot stickers. Tasty!

We waited so long to be greeted by a server that we had to ask the person who checked us in if we even had one! The skewers were awful but the wonton tacos were excellent. It is definitely not worth the long wait on a weekend. There are better restaurants in Salt Lake and with half the wait. I would never go back to Tsunami without a reservation.

Overall the experience was very good! The sushi was not among the best I've ever had but it was good enough no complaints. The ambience was a bit cold and bustling like a busy train station (reflective of the area), could do with some warming up. Not such a great place for a first date. Service was spot-on. Very busy at dinner time be sure to make a reservation in advance. Thanks Tsunami Lehi

We have enjoyed Tsunami, in fact it WAS our favorite restaraunt in the past, but we have noticed the skewers and teriyaki meats are often over-cooked and dry. We came on Valentine’s Day and the ambiance and food was just not very good. It may be awhile before we come back again.

We feel we are kindof sushi snobs, and this is one of my favorite places to go! My husband loves the mussels, which is hard to find at other restaurants. We love the huge variety of sushi there is. There are so many choices, we had to start keeping track on my 'notes' in my phone to review and know which rolls we've tried. I love love love Tsunami!!!
