The atmosphere was nice, relaxed, and welcoming. The service was phenomenal as was the food. I would definitely recommend Tsunami to my friends or anyone looking for some good Japanese food.

Food here is #1. If you let them know your special dietary needs they can adjust the food to fit you. We are vegan and when we ordered the tempura vegetables she said she would make sure they gave us the vegan dipping sauce. I hadn't realized there was a difference and appreciated it. They also removed the cream cheese from one of the rolls I had to make it vegan. Always fresh and always good. Chelsea is a fabulous server as well!

I was really looking forward to dinner here with my boyfriend and some friends. We were seated right away as I had made a reservation. The only thing I really wanted was something with AHI Tuna. NO AHI TUNA that night.....found that a little odd at a sushi restaurant. Anyway. We will be back but I will make a quick call first to see if they have the menu item I really like. Service was slow, but we did not mind. We did not feel rushed to leave our table. It is spendy....however if you want a nice sushi bar. You should check them out!

Every Sunday night we go to here. It's the end of a weekend. I don't want to cook. I get a date with my husband. Great food. Great service. Make a standing reservation using Open Table. Simple and perfect.

I really liked the food experience, I had the Sunshine roll and it was to die for. The waiter was very nice and attentive. The only thing I did not like was that the table that they gave me was right by the kitchen door and while I waited for my friend I could hear the people in the back talking very loudly. I asked them to move me to another table and they did. So that was great!

I LOVE Tsunami in Union Heights! The sushi and food is always amazing, their cheesecake is the best, and hands down it's one of my favorite sushi restaurants in Utah! Wonderful staff too! Everyone is always so nice, and service is great!

Sometimes this restaurant can be loud and very noisy. We were sat in a booth out of the way so the noise level was tolerable. I highly suggest getting a reservation though because this place is always busy. The food and service is always great!

Excellent sushi. Our only issue is we asked 3 times for our green tea to be refilled. She forgot every time. Otherwise great recommendations for different sushi.

This is our favorite place to eat. We LOVE the Dynamite Scallops that we can still order even though it isn't on the menu. They always have interesting specials as well as many many good choices of sushi and other items if sushi isn't your thing.

They have a frequent diner card which is great because we go often.

We enjoy Tsunami about once a month. The executive sushi roll is yummy with lime. The salmon teriyaki is super good just make sure you ask for additional glaze, it seems like you need to request it. I highly recommend RSVP in advance they also have Valet

The noise level was so loud - other guests talking very loud -made it impossible to have a conversation with our friends at our table. We had to shout. Food this time was only ok. Had better food here for lunch a few months ago.

Good sushi with exception of the saba which tasted horrible, waiters have zero knowledge of what fish is what , really pathetic , could not even recognize salmon on nigiri.
But the sushi was good

Food was definitely delicious, but a bit on the cooler side as if the plates had been sitting for a time before being brought out. Service was very friendly, if not a bit slow but it was also quite busy (maybe this is why our food didn't seem too hot). The food is also a bit pricey, but they definitely give you a lot of food so it was worth it.

One of our favorite restaurants. We try to go to Tsunami at least every Friday or Saturday. Every time we take friends and family from out of town, those who order the sushi all comment how its the best sushi they have had. Great food and predictably consistent quality.

I eat here often, but tonight was great. The sushi was great and our kids loved the teriyaki steak. We tried the Tomba Sashimi... It was awesome! And as usual, the executive, aloha and P. D. Rolls were tasty!
