After traveling the world and trying all sorts of different sushi. Tsunami sushi is vey good sushi considering we were in Costa Rica. Prices were a bit on higher side but it certainly worth it.

Tsunami has just moved into the new dining/business development near south beach Jaco. Same great food, excellent service with a new look. Still one of the best places for sushi, especially 1/2 price Wednesday and Friday.

Wow did this place get expensive. Checked out their new spot for the first time last night. All rolls increased by $3-5. I understand inflation, but increasing items by 30-40% is obscene Spicy tuna roll for $15. Hardly any meat in it either. Tuna is so cheap here too. Same roll (with twice the meat) costs six bucks, just 300... More

Just had dinner at their new location at Jaco Walk, very impressed with the atmosphere and how quickly they made the move. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding. Their Wednesday night 50% of menu was a great bonus, we've often seen two for one night that have a tiny limited menu and this is not the case here.... More

My husband and I went to Tsunami Sushi. We ordered miso soup and edamame which was good. But when our sushi rolls came out we were very disappointed. The rice was overly sweetened, I know sushi rice is made to be slightly sweet, but their rice was extremely sweet and overpowered the flavors of the filling. Speaking of filling, my... More

I write this reluctantly. And you can clearly see my last Tsunami five star review. I write this for myself but it represents the opinion of about 10 people. The NEW Tsunami is a great location with very improved parking. The restaurant is very pretty ans appealing at first glance. However, they have made some very bad mistakes in this... More

Beautiful restaurant on the second floor of the brand-new Jaco Walk mall. Comfortable seating, inviting atmosphere. I personally got sticker shock looking over the menu, and opted for one of the less expensive meals, a tuna tataki dinner for $27. It was preceded by miso soup and a not very interesting small green salad, so I was not expecting much... More

I visited here with friends a week ago. The service was top notch and AMAZING. We lucked out and were there for the 2 for 1 drinks. Great MOJITOS!! Our server recommended the Edamame picantes con ajo, it did not disappoint. It had a slight heat but not too much. Very different and we all absolutely loved it. Round two... More

There are several places in Jaco to get sushi but we went here because I had read about half price rolls on Wednesday. Great choice. An entire menu of rolls were offered at half price and they were top notch. The place was packed and the service was excellent. Highly recommend this place. Can't comment on other sushi in Jaco.

Thank cindywait
