Established in 2001, Tsunami is still a big wave washing through Clapham. Following a full refurbishment in April 2015 this flagship restaurant has brought its whole look up-to-date rivaling the best in Central London. With stunning wooden screens surrounding luxurious leather seating, it certainly sets the scene for an exquisite meal or delicious cocktail. With a late license, this is certainly the place to go!

Haven't been here with my wife in 5 years but Tsuami didn't disappoint. The Food was exquisite and the Cocktails also Top Notch. Even with us being outside due to covid rules the heaters where adequate.

We shall be going again closer to summer with some friends too.

Food was great...really enjoyed the Salmon special they had running this month!! A bit cold due to compulsory outdoor dining and we weren’t under a heated table so it wasn’t the best, but staff did their best to ensure that we were looked after, provided blankets etc. Will definitely return!!

Back to Tsunami after lockdown and was really looking forward. We were not disappointed. Food was great and used to be and staff is very helpful. Dining outside was not great because of the wind but 100% worth it

Very nice food (expensive but worth it) however service could be better, especially when they try to slap on a 20% gratuity tax onto the bill.

Food was excellent. Service was good could have been a touch more attentive but it’s fairly new systems with outdoor tables. Still excellent and will be coming back.

Had to repeat ourselves a few times to get what we were asking for. The wrong food was delivered and when we questioned our waiter he simply said that how it came prepared even though it was actually the wrong dish and then went to ‘check with the chef’ but never came back with a response-we found out that the order had simply been taken wrong but there was a lot of waiting and it seemed rude from our point of view with the lack of follow up. We were also sitting in the cold as there was no sun (which is more our fault than theirs as we weren’t properly dressed) but it still affected our experience

We have been going to Tsunami for years, and have had our ups and downs, but recent experiences have been very good. The food is reliably delicious, and while not the most authentic Japanese experience in town, it is a very satisfying place to go if you want an above average selection of sushi, some seriously scrummy rolls - the soft shell crab roll and the Red Dragon roll are particularly good - and some 'hot favourites' like tempura . From the starters, the kataifi prawns and nasu goma (aubergine with miso paste) are standouts. The spicy edamame are spicy!
The staff were very obliging, given they are working in difficult conditions - the outside dining here is 'hit and miss', as it is a narrow strip, not very sheltered, and on the most recent evening in question, the patio heater above our table was not working, so it was a bit of a chilly experience. That, and the strict 90 minute time limit means that, on the one hand, food is delivered very promptly - but if you are outside and eating hot food, you do not necessarily want it all at once, as it will cool quickly. Not a problem, obviously, if you are concentrating on the sushi!
Tsunami has always been on the expensive side, but then again, good Japanese food IS expensive - you get what you pay for (hopefully). All things considered, I think Tsunami is doing a good job and would definitely recommend it, though I am looking forward to going back and eating inside on our next visit!

The staff were really nice, the food was great (especially the spice edamame beans). The venue has outside heating and hot water bottles which was a nice touch but we went on a cold day.
