Sister restaurant to Tsunami Lafayette, we offer a diverse menu which focuses on obtaining the freshest seafood and all around ingredients available. Our menu has remained water cooler conversation with its Japanese and Eastern fare, striving to add innovative new dishes as we travel the globe sampling ideas and bringing them back to our beloved customers. Food offerings include standard sushi rolls, nigiri and sashimi. In addition to our fresh Japanese tempura and teriyaki dishes, TSUNAMI also offers delicious Asian inspired specials on Friday and Saturday evenings, ranging from duck to wahoo to ribeye steak prepared by our award winning chefs.
I love how everyone rating this place highly has to make a point of how they ve supposedly had sooo much experience w/ sushi restaurants. A super trendy joint like this can do no wrong and will still attract crowds of suckers. The sushi was not very fresh and way overpriced for the quality (esp. the sashimi). $28 sashimi dinner didn t even come w/ soup or salad, AND they even charge $3 for a small bowl of rice. The service was very though, but they put some tacky reminder on the sushi menu about tipping the sushi chef--uh, yeah right. It was kind of funny how people were waiting b/c they had a bunch of tables reserved even though they were unoccupied for about an hour.
I have eaten at many sushi restaurants in the area and this one is by no means close to the best. My wife and I went there in the early evening on a weeknight. We were promptly seated at a table with a great view of the river. That was by far the best part of the experience. This was not good sushi. This place is very trendy and chic....if you want to impress a date with views....go here. If she really likes sushi....take her someplace else. There are several places in town with far better food at much lower prices.
my favorite place to eat sushi in the US. I have traveled from city to city being in the military and by far this is the place to go!! Every one must try the Alligator roll real tempura alligator with spicy mayo and avacado mmmmmmmmmm!!
If you want good sushi at a reasonable price, go somewhere else. If you want to get shiut faced drunk with some of Baton Rouge's hottest women, this is the place to be. Many of BR's elite can be found up here on the 6th floor of the Shaw Center from time to time too.
