unique – Extensive menu -- and it's not only great food but there's fall-out shelter in case a Tsunami hits the area.
Pretty good sushi - affordable and fresh! – Service can be spotty here, but the recent addition of more asian wait staff seems to have rectified that problem. The rolls are unique and it's a good feed for a family for a fair price, and occasioanlly the specials are really great. Ask for the lobster roll. They won't have it. (it's a running joke in our family) - no matter what the sign says, they won't have lobster roll. Ever. Try the volcano roll, and the spicy rolls can be really spicy. Good eel, egg was ok. Good asian beer selection kept cold. Lotsa good parking.
MUST EXPERIENCE THE TSUNAMI – So what,! if there is a Korean woman sushi chef! Her make is Mikkie and she was awesome, she make the most tasteful and unique rolls. They have the freshest fish, must try the tuna and yellowtail. I've been to Ra, Kona, Sushi on Shea, Sushi Brokers, Sakana (gigantic sushi you cannot fit into mouth, very overwhelming), just about everywhere. Tsunami is IT, they got GOOD FOOD, GOOD AMBIANCE, GOOD SERVICE AND AWESOME HAPPY HOUR.
EXPERIENCE IT FOR YOUR SELF
Not worth your money & time – If you're a sushi-lover, do not go to this restaurant, because their sushi and rolls were not good. It was actually the first time in our lives when we saw a woman (I believe Korean) making sushi. Either this particular woman wasn't good or everybody at this place cooks this way. Rice for sushi was very sticky, heavy and it was put in large amounts. Each sushi piece looked almost X2 the size; fish was cut in thick pieces, so sushi didn't taste good at all. Rolls were better, but still pretty average - not worth going to this specific place. Also, though we asked & wrote down "no cucumber" it was in all rolls, which can be one time mistake or their regular attitude towards customers with special requests.
