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.Continued

- authentic and great valueOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 11/11/2014Delicious and really authentic food Amazing value with 40% off Great buzz and the restaurant was pretty busy at 6.30pm would highly recommendSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nom Nom NomevieDined on 10/11/2014Great value with the special 40%, there was no holding back on the ordering. An absolute delight to visit, great food! Great selection of dishes to choose form, well presented and extremely tasty.Special Features:
- Tsunami 40% offSmalleyDined on 4/11/2014Was delicious and very quick and friendly service. Wouldn't be able to afford full price! Ambiance is also lacking, feels like any sushi restaurant but I guess lots of them are the same. The Clapham chain is a lot bigger and better.Special Features:
- FoodaliciousVIPDined on 4/11/2014Despite asking on arrival what was included in the 40% offer the waitress 'failed' mention that desserts were full price. Not a disaster, but annoying. She also had little idea about the menu which I don't expect at a slightly higher end joint...Special Features:
- Amazing japanese at TsunamiSPHUDined on 28/10/2014And incredible value with the 40% off all a la carte food offer... especially loved the prawn tempuri, lobster maki, steamed sea bass, and ribeye with truffleSpecial Features:
- Another repeat visit to Tsunami!PickleDined on 27/10/2014We visited Tsunami for a post birthday treat. I asked for a quiet table for 2 as it was my birthday but they sat us in the same awkward spot as before..smack bang in the middle of the restaurant walkway. The food is fantastic & great value, & we will return. But the waitress we had seemed very confused (maybe new) and we got our food before our drink (which we had to chase up). Instead of dessert we asked for a glass of plum wine each...the waitress said "I don't think that's allowed" & ran off to the manager. When we did get the plum wine, it was unlike any I've had before....lots of pulp like you get in orange juice!? Anyway, this place is great for the wonderful food & cocktails but the service could be improved (our waitress anyway!)Special Features:
- TsunamiTrebor7Dined on 23/10/2014We found this restaurant disappointing. We went to celebrate my daughters birthday - she chose Japanese because she will be going to Japan in the New Year. She has been before but Japan and Japanese food were unfamiliar to me and her mother. Briefly the food was OK but the rather grumpy waiting staff did not discuss or explain. We were put in a somewhat cramped table and I sat on a bench seat with no back which was uncomfortable. I put up with this because one got the impression that the response would be just more grumpiness. I would not go again and - unfairly - I fear it may have put me off dining Japanese for a while.
- Great sushi spotfoodieDined on 17/10/2014Great 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great SushiShifVIPDined on 16/10/2014This is one of my favourite restaurants for sushi with the vast selection on the menu.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lovely dinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 6/10/2014Nice selection of roll, sushi...everything consistently goodSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Reasonable ExperienceMuffinDined on 2/10/2014Restaurant looks tired. Tables need upgrading. Food and presentation good but not outstanding. Value for money - although London do tend to have a premium - VFM was not so good.Special Features:
- Excellent as usualMbrogersVIPDined on 29/9/201440% off food was handy to, grilled scallops for starters were very goodSpecial Features:
- very goodashtreeDined on 25/9/2014Food was excellent, service was unobtrusive, seats just not that comfortable when matched to tables.
- Reliably tasty & freshly preparedHungryGhostDined on 23/9/2014Ambience 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best sushi I've found in LondonSpannavisionDined on 16/9/2014The 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.Special Features:
- Sushi fixSupsinthecityDined on 12/9/2014My 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.Special Features:
- TsunamicmooDined on 2/9/2014Excellent meal, and excellent value with 40% off food special early evening offer.I would recommend this to a friend.
- deliciousSharonaDined on 29/8/2014Tuna with truffle mayo. Wow. Cod. Delicious. Cocktails fabulous. Couldn't stop eating....Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday dinneryolenisisDined on 27/8/2014I 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!!Special Features:
- EmziDined on 26/8/2014Great food and great service. Really good recommendations from the waitress. Very impressed and am sure we will be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fantastic foodBrianDined on 22/8/2014Having 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.Special Features:
- JustlauzDined on 18/8/2014Great sushi as usual fast service and good value with the 40% offSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great value!GoodfoodDined on 5/8/2014We had a 40% off discount but even without that it was pretty cheap! Sushi and sashimi was yummy!! I found the decor quite nice but it was rather cold for my liking.. However lighting was great and I felt it was a really really great last minute booking!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food good value with discountNyuszikaDined on 5/8/2014The food here is good and the service is also good. With the discount 40% for early dining, it's good value. We ate for £20 a head including tea and sake.
- Beautifully presented and exquisiteCake4TDined on 1/8/2014The food here is absolutely amazing; you must try the Takoyaki and dragon volcano roll (very large dish, best to share) I can't wait to go back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent value at 40%ben83Dined on 29/7/2014Really hard to beat if you don't mind eating early. Imagine I wouldn't feel the same at full price however. Good service good food.Special Features:
- amazing foodKB78Dined on 28/7/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- It's okay....GoodEatsDined on 28/7/2014Went 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.
- Great food but too priceyjt84Dined on 26/7/2014The food was delicious especially the black cod. The waiters were attentive too but perhaps because it was 1/3rd full at 7pm on a Satuday.Special Features:

- Good Lamb Cutlets and DrinksRiasDined on 19/7/2014Went to Tsunami for an early Saturday dinner and had a great experience. Sushi was fresh and Lamb cutlets were lovely. The staff were very attentive and even googled a cocktail that we wanted but they didn't have on the menu.. and made it for us!! Will def come back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Yum yum yumcwo1978Dined on 18/7/2014Great food and service. The volcano dish (their award winner) was delicious. A nice evening out with friends !Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food great serviceNommingtonSmytheDined on 17/7/2014My partner and I spent a wonderful summers evening dining at Tsunami. The food was excellent, fresh and flavoursome. In particular the chili squid, which was to die for. The girl serving us was full of fun and banter and made our experience that extra bit special.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food, brilliant serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 15/7/2014We went pre theatre for a meal and the place was buzzing already. The food was excellent, the service was really attentive without being intrusive The quality of the food was top notchSpecial Features:
- disappointingGastroGirlVIPDined on 11/7/2014tasting menu was poor value - tiny portions and most of it pre-packaged and pre-made. very disappointed this time round.
- ImpressiveJoelDined on 8/7/2014Wonderful 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 :).Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great atmosphere, great service!TaylorDined on 8/7/2014Lovely place with a great chilled atmosphere and a great service.Special Features:
- BobbyDined on 5/7/2014Very good japanese food: traditional dishes and sashimi. Good value for money, yet a minus as their offers 10/20%/40% off during certain hours are not quite transparent. Friendly serviceSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
