Food was excellent, waiter was attentive, and we had a lovely time. Even thought they were slammed, we didn't feel rushed. We always enjoy dinner at Tsunami!

Tsunami continues to serve excellent sushi and other dishes as well. Korean style Boneless beef short ribs are the best. It has been my favorite neighborhood eatery for 10 years. Great service at the bar by Val !

Normally the food is excellent here. May have been a bad night. Service was incredibly slow and bad. When she brought the sushi rolls, she started to explain what they were. we told her we didnt order those. her response was " d*** it, I dont know what they are. they just told me it was your order." And it went on from there.....

Fort Union’s Tsunami is our favorite sushi joint. We’ve been coming here for years and we choose Tsunami for our anniversary dinner almost every year for the last 8-9 years. They never disappoint. Great food, the waiters are always friendly, and we love the menu. They even make rolls that aren’t on the menu that’s they used to make as well. We live in Layton and come down to Tsunami cause it’s that good.

The food was not up to par. Chef made rolls different then listed on the menu. We were out in a room with two huge parties and couldn’t hear each other talk. After sending two rolls back, we basically ate what was left and decided to leave.

Manager didn’t acknowledge our situation until we said we needed to leave. At that point the only thing she did was take off the roll we didn’t eat. Not additional comp at all and it was a horrible experience to have to deal with a party room and sub par food!

It was so bad that the manager took us into the back kitchen area to pay the bill???? Very unprofessional and at that point I would have expected my dinner to be comped, but all she said was next time I’ll give you dessert?!

Super disappointed. This place is a hit and miss. Never consistent.

What a fantastic first time at this location! One daughter had a birthday party upstairs and was taken care of wonderfully..thank you Carey!! The other daughter and I were lucky enough to sit at Drew's end of the sushi bar. What a treat! He and the server never made us feel rushed, the food was incredible, and all staff we met were so friendly. Drew made me the most delicate, tender white fish negiri white a dreamy citrus, pepper hint on the top that I have never before experienced. Worth the 35 minute drive for sure.

It is always a pleasure eating at Tsunami. They have excellent vegan selections and if there is a roll you want to try but it has fish in it, they will turn it into vegan for you! Excellent food.

The recent we chose this restaurant was due to the reviews on OpenTable.
Very disapointed. Food quality was fair,
ordered 5 rolls for table and all were not what we are used to. No real flavor to any and packed with too much rice. Not on par with sushi restaurants we frequent in NY.

Super Delicious. The sushi is a can’t miss! The waiter was very attentive and kind. The atmosphere was very good. The noise level wasn’t bad because we had a table in the bad of the restaurant which helped a lot. The other courses we had were just as good as the sushi. You won’t be disappointed. Come early because it gets pretty crowded around 6:30. Enjoy!!

We ended up waiting quite awhile for our main dish after we finished our appetizer. The waiter did check in once but after that we waited until he finally came with our order and explained that there had been a “wait jump” due to a spike in customer orders.

Food was fabulous everything was great, the only thing that could be addressed was our table was next to an unused door to the outside and there was a pretty cold draft coming in through it I stuffed my coat in it and that helped a lot. Food is really good, service was fantastic, really great.
