I had a very good experience there. I came by myself for lunch and liked the atmosphere so I set up my computer and worked for a while. The waiter was continually attentive...he did not stop filling my water glass after I had paid. The sushi was really good and affordable. I will come back and recommend Tsunami. Thank you.

What You'll Get

The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of authentic Japanese fare at Tsunami's Gervais Street or Bower Parkway locations in Columbia.

Tsunami's menu floods the mind with sushi, steak, noodles, and traditional Japanese tempura. Appetizers such as the subtly salted edamame ($4.50) or the teriyaki skewer ($5.99) prepare diners for entrees so established that they've been carved into sculptures in remote valleys. Hibachi dinners, prepared teppan-style with the help of an iron griddle, include teriyaki chicken ($13.99) and rib-eye steak ($16.99), and are served with the choice of salad or miso soup and steamed or fried rice. Nosh on noodle dishes such as the udon soup ($6.99 veggie, $9.99 shrimp tempura, $10.99 seafood) or round up the usual sliced-to-order suspects with Tsunami’s extensive and inventive specialty roll and sushi lineups.

Tsunami has an exotic, charming atmosphere to match its exotic plates. Sultry dim lighting cloaks diners in an aura of mystique exactly unlike that of Burton Gilliam's sock drawer, and, at the glowing purple backlit bar, rows of bottles invite diners to imbibe or practice their squirt gun aim. Call ahead to make a reservation.


Nine Yelpers give the Gervais Street location an average of four stars. Yahoo! Locals rate it a four-star average, and 87% of Urbanspooners recommend it.

About Tsunami

The culinary team at Tsunami fixes up a veritable feast for the eyes with artfully plated Japanese delicacies festooned with sprigs of herbs, splashes of sauce, and colorful garnishes. Flames rage as hibachi chefs blast rib-eye steaks, scallops, and vegetables on their sizzling grills, and the restaurant’s sushi-rolling savants coil specialty rolls such as the Emperor, which surprises tasters with hidden stashes of fried soft-shell crab, cucumber, eel, shrimp, and avocado. At Tsunami's four locations, diners polish off plates in a sleek, modern dining room with candles in faceted glass votives, a bar backlit with lights that slowly change colors, and waiters who can speak fluent binary code.
