A word from Tsunami - West End
In the heart of the West End, Charlotte Street is home to some of London’s most popular eateries and Tsunami is no exception. This modern Japanese restaurant is a tranquil haven just moments from bustling Soho, so it’s an ideal setting for laid-back lunches and intimate pre-theatre dinners. The interior is cool and contemporary; complete with sleek banquette seating and delicate floral motifs on the walls. The expertly prepared sushi and sashimi will satisfy even the fussiest Japanese food fan and the menu also offers delicious hot dishes. Our favorites include the traditional chicken yakitori; sizzling teriyaki beef; and deliciously crisp black cod tempura with wasabi mayo. For a light and elegant meal in W1, Tsunami is hard to beat.

    Great sushi restaurant in a good location ideally placed for a pre or post theatre meal. We had the seafood tempura, squid (delicious), dynamite tofu and beef, teriyaki chicken and tsunami sushi. All the good was lovely and didn't break the bank! Would recommend.

    Ambience not great compared to the Clapham restaurant. Slightly too-close tables and would have liked to be offered alternative seating. Food great value because of offer. Best dishes black cod, duck, aubergine starter and tuna/salmon salad. Would come again, but only with offer. Service pleasant and not intrusive. They need some help with ambience, it was a touch too stark and did not compliment the food.

  • Best sushi I've found in London

    The outside and decor could probably do with some sprucing but this is the closest I've got to a good sushi restaurant in London that doesn't charge you the world (a la Nobu, etc...). Highly recommend getting a bit creative with your ordering and do not miss out on the Volcano Dragon Roll - worth all its hype. I will definitely be going again.

    My heart was set on sushi and I found great reviews for Tsunami and a good deal (though I don't think we took advantage of it). The sushi wasn't the best I've ever had but it was good. Their other dishes very very good. Loved the chilli edamame for appetiser and the deep friend baby octopus.The Tempura was gorgeous and you cannot go to Tsunami without trying their Miso Cod. The atmosphere is very cosy and the staff friendly.

    I took my daughter here for her birthday, which was on the day, and I mentioned this when I booked thru Open table, so it was a special occasion for us. We got a nice quite table and the service started off good…until a large group of 12 people arrived. Then service and attention went out the window. The food was good and presentation lovely, but it was spoilt by the lack of attention, as we had to try and catch someone attention while they were all dancing around this big group. No acknowledgement of the birthday, usually at any restaurant there is SOMETHING, even just a ball of vanilla ice cream at the end of the meal. I felt bad for my daughter, but what can one do?! Then they presumptuously add 12,5% tip!! Outrageous if you ask me!!

    Having previously enjoyed the £50 per person tasting menu, we were initially disappointed that it was not included in the top table offer. However, we ordered some of the same dishes from the a la carte menu and found that the portions were much bigger! We probably ended up over ordering, but couldn't bare to leave a morsel - the food is exceptional - the black cod and the beef in truffle sauce are both to die for. Both the waiter and waitress were charming. Not a cheap venue, but good value considering the quality of the food. Will definitely be back.

    I went there on a Monday and we had 40% off a la cart from orders before 7pm. The food that we were served did not lack in its volume or quality (as some restaurants do when they have offers) I recommend the dragon roll and wagyu beef and fois gras nigiri. I will definitely be back for more.

    Dined on 28/7/2014
    Went to Tsunami with pretty high expectations based on previous reviews. The first thing I noticed was the lack of air circulation in the restaurant which gave the room a very mild, almost like rotten seafood kind of smell. The decor was pleasing and so were the staff. Very friendly and attentive service from everyone who passed through our table. The food itself though was disappointing. Among the items we ordered was the award-winning dragon volcano roll, which was covered in a thick layer of creamy stuff and a bit greasy. May give the place another try in the future and sit outside, but unfortunately this first experience was not what I'd hoped for.

    Wonderful from start to finish, generous portions and perfect service. Very good value when compared with places like Matsuri St James, which is also great. Tempura was crisp and sushi very well prepared. I would personally recommend the yellow tail tartare which was very fresh and wonderfully seasoned. Cocktails tasted great and in good quantity. The restaurant were turning people away constantly, which always makes a dinner feel good :).

    I have been to Tsunami a few times, from catch ups with mates to business lunches and even romantic dinners. Food has been consistent every time with the signature Dragon Volcano roll leaving the very best impression - I actually crave it at the very thought of it. At £25 for sushi rolls it's not cheap but it's wonderous and filling, and big enough to share (although I struggle letting anyone get their chopsticks on it). Wine list is great, main courses are generous, overall a treat and a good spot for sushi.

    Agedashi tofu and tempura batter was light, dashi was good. Gyoza were nice, although on the squidgier side. Wasabi cream chicken was unusual and tasty, wasabi not overpowering. Other mains went down well. Our sashimi selection was initially forgotten about, but came pretty quickly after we questioned the staff, and the fish was cut quite generously. Staff were initially very attentive; restaurant was busier towards the end of our stay.
