Here is a pretty good shot of their menu for sushi special rolls. Hard time finding their menu anywhere else.
It was a momentous occasion the other night. Not only was I celebrating a birthday with dinner out at a sushi restaurant with my family, it was my oldest son’s first real trip out for sushi.
If I can get a thirteen year old who has historically been a picky eater to try sushi and like it I think I’ve helped spread the joy of sushi to another person in the world. I think he actually ate more than I did which is no easy task.
I knew it was his first time so I wanted to play it safe with some standard rolls including a Playboy, Vegas and Tempura Crunch Roll. To our surprise he didn’t even bat an eye at eating the raw fish in and on the rolls. I think I’ve found a new sushi buddy, I’m so happy.
My youngest son ordered the mac and cheese bento box, so my work is not done…he said with a twinkle in his eye.

Stopped by for a nice lunch for my first visit to Tsunami at Union Heights and I was pleasantly surprised. I’ve heard a lot about Tsunami over the years but have not had the chance to sample their sushi thus far. I have to say the restaurant lived up to the hype. The quality of the food, service and price are all spot on. I made sure to get a VIP card as I’ll be back again…soon!
The quality of sushi at Tsunami is a step above the rest to be honest. Even on a simple roll the quality of the ingredients and preparation were top notch. The combination of ingredients created some distinct and tantalizing flavors in my mouth.
The restaurant is in a fairly new area and the inside is nicely decorated and everything seemed very clean. It’s a high-class establishment. No small stoves and tinfoil hanging off the shelf here. Very tidy and pleasant to sit down and enjoy some sushi.
The service was great. I had a new waiter that was being trained but they were very attentive and my glass was never empty. Service was great and I didn’t want for anything.
For a higher end sushi restaurant I would have expected the prices to be much higher. Tsunami has been able to bring a quality product to their customers with some personal touches at a price that doesn’t break the bank.
Description: The Ume Kyu roll is a wonderful roll. It has a very unique flavor. Like a pop-rocks sushi roll. The pickled plum has a sparkling sweetness to it. Combine that with the tasty cucumber and it’s a nice tasting simple roll for vegetarian and beginners alike.
Description: The Horenso is an interesting roll. You already have green veggie with most the nori or seaweed in most standard rolls but adding a bit of spinach still gives it a different taste. Not a very strong taste but a pleasant roll if you like spinach. It’s a great vegetarian sushi roll and is good for a beginner. Add a little soy and wasabi to spice it up!
Big Sumo Roll
Tempura shrimp, cucumbers,and Sumo sauce topped with five types of sashimi, fresh shrimp, avocado, spicy crab, green onions & sweet sauce
Description: The Big Sumo Roll isn’t the biggest roll I’ve had but it is a nice sized roll. It had some great flavors with the tempura shrimp, fresh shrimp, spicy crab and avocado.
