    A long-time favorite, this last meal was a little below the high standards we've come to expect. Cooked rolls were not quite the correct temperature and service was just a little bit unattentive. We'll consider it an anomaly and be back again.

    We came here for wife’s birthday Probably last time I am eating here I reserved a table and didn’t get seated until like an hour after then waiter took another 20 but that was after I had to go ask for one when we finally got food food was ok sushi was ok specially since that was the main reason why we went it wasn’t as good as it was last time 4/5 years ago although it was in the sojo area not mistake not sure if it was just location but to finish it they ended up charging me wrong for 2 items always get a receipt because they didn’t ask me for it, paid so much where could had gone somewhere else and ate much better and gotten better service. Not worth the money at all.

    Service was sporadic. Server was slow to get to table, then after initial beverage and app order was brought, meal took forever to come out. Entrees were tepid and tempura vegetables were cold and soggy(poor choice for meal, cauliflower and onions). Sushi was okay, but it has been better in past. It was busy enough in the restaurant, but not terribly crazy... It may be a little while before we return.

    The reservation made online the day before, did not show up the day of in the computer. I waited 30 minutess to get one in the back room. It was a bday celebration, took 15 min to take our order, another 25 minutes to get our food and it was COLD. The chicken, salmon, rice, veggies all COLD. Waiter didn't come to check on us, & bc we were on a limited time frame, we couldn't wait for another meal. I eat there every chance i get. i take people there, which is what happened; however, our experience was horrible. We both walked away so disappointed.

    I love going to Tsunami but this time was awful. It took them forever to get us on a table, even though we had a reservation. They put us in a hidden corner on the back end of the restaurant. Never a waiter, no one set up the table until we ordered. Food took FOREVER and it was soggy.

    In the past I have always raved about the fried calamari, and therefore I order every time I'm here. This time however if was not nearly as light and crispy as it normally is. The batter was thicker and gooier than previously to the extent that I was not even sure that there was any calamari inside the fried crust. On the other hand, the tempura vegetables were outstanding. I also was a bit disappointed in the portion size of the Hawaiian style ahi poki. I recognize that it is described as a small plate, but while being quite fresh and delicious, I doubt if there were more than2-3 ounces of fish in that bowl. For the price I'd say it was not a great value. Again, this is something I have ordered in this restaurant on plenty of previous visits so I have some experience to be able to make the comparison. Our server was top notch in all respects.

    It was good - the only issue our table had was that we were unaware of their digital-only menu preference, where you're to scan a QR code on the table to view their menus. Now, this is the first place I've been to like that, so I just was unaware. My dad and his partner are older and this was a bit more frustrating for them, but eventually the waitress came with a paper menu. She was polite and attentive. I liked most of what I tasted, but I don't think anything was wrong with the item I didn't like (the Tsunami Roll). It just wasn't my cup of tea, as it had a very strong fishy/sea flavor, which I think was the crab in the roll. The PD and Executive Suite rolls were EXCELLENT, and very fresh and flavorful. The habanero sauce that comes with the ES roll is awesome - and I don't think so spicy it should be feared by many. Vegetable gyoza were surprisingly flavorful, with a nice little crisp on the bottom. Good sushi for a chain joint. Good service. Decent prices.

    We started out at another restaurant where we waited for over 40 minutes to have our main food order taken - we walked out As we were leaving we made rsvp for 8:15. We were seated and we arrived early. We were seated fairly quickly. By the time we had finished our dinner - everything was very flavorful - we had been there for about 50min and our bill was half of what the other restaurant was charging. The staff were friendly and helpful here at Tsunami and the food was very good. My husband doesn’t like seafood and yet he likes the non fish dishes here that they serve. This is the third time we’ve been there and they do not disappoint and they are consistent.

    Our experience at the Union Heights Tsunami was “OK”. We usually go to the Tsunami on 10600 s and approx 1300w. We always have an excellent dining experience there. We wanted to try a different location, and we were not impressed. Our server was nice, but we didn’t get refills on our drinks, our table sauces were empty, and we didn’t get the silverware we requested. I ended up asking a couple fellow diners for soy sauce, and I had to find another server for silverware. The food was fantastic, but it’s fantastic at all Tsunami’s. So we will stick with the one off 106th, or the one in Lehi.

    Coming to Tsunami made me think I was seeing all the rejects from The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. And I didn't know tattoos had come to suburbia with such force. The amount of makeup being used made me think I was in Dallas. I didn't expect such a casual atmosphere for a supposedly high quality Japanese restaurant and the noise levels were loud. We could hear the woman next table over talking about her stretch marks in detail. A trend I hate is having to look at a menu online through a QR code. It's annoying to scroll around to find what I'm interested in, and time consuming. I didn't even bother trying to find sake that I might like to drink since I knew the server wouldn't be any help and it was so laborious to read an online drink menu. And then to the food... First of all, the basics were poorly done. Sushi rice was old, obviously, and did not stick so it could be eaten with chopsticks. Miso soup was way overly salty with a couple, microscopic pieces of tofu. Sushi making skill was severely lacking. Because the rice was old, the onigiri easily fell apart. The roll was poorly wrapped, just sloppy work. The snapper sashimi were paper thin slices and the uni tasted fishy and old. We got a typical western style sushi roll and I would say this was the tastiest. It seems that most people go for these rolls with all their goofy ingredients. For our mains we ordered a chicken teriyaki and chicken katsu which were adequate but the poor quality rice and miso soup was a damper. I guess I should know better than to consider Salt Lake "foodie" reviewers as this was overhyped and thoroughly disappointing. So once again, we got sucked into eating at a place that was supposed to be one of the best in SLC. Too bad it was our anniversary dinner. Because it was more like the dog's breakfast.

    always delicious, the only problem is there are too many delicious things on the menu so you can't have them all each time you visit. And remember you can always order more desert, but you can't send it back cause your eyes are bigger than your stomach.

    Food and service isn’t what it used to be. The rice with our short ribs was crusty and dry in parts. Staff is hit or miss on service. This time it was a miss. Just a bummer since this place used to be a go to restaurant for us.
