Established in 2001, Tsunami is still a big wave washing through Clapham. Following a full refurbishment in April 2015 this flagship restaurant has brought its whole look up-to-date rivaling the best in Central London. With stunning wooden screens surrounding luxurious leather seating, it certainly sets the scene for an exquisite meal or delicious cocktail. With a late license, this is certainly the place to go!

First time eating here and wasn't disappointed. I've eaten at many places in Japan and quite frankly the food at Tsunami could easily stand up alongside some of the best the food I've eaten there

Amazing how long this place has been going, and maintaining pretty consistent standards too! Outside tables a good place to watch the world go by.

Lovely place and really nice food. The only things that were kind of annoying was after our meal we were left for about an hour with no offer of dessert or the bill, it was only because we were chatting so much that we didn't notice as much. And we were sitting outside and people kept coming up to us asking for money while we were eating which wasn't the most pleasant thing.

We had a delicious dinner at Tsunami in Clapham. Presentation of the food was beautiful and the staff were friendly. We did have to wait quite a while to be served and then the beer we ordered didn't turn up but given how busy they were and the new systems in place we can understand!

We were seated quickly and efficiently, and presented with our crockery and cutlery in individual wallets.
On the table was a QR code with a link to the menu. Ordering was still done the old fashioned way via wait staff.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and made sure we’d ordered enough food but not too much. They recommended some other dishes based on our order as well which was really helpful.
The ambience was slightly subdued but that should be expected during these COVID days.
The value was really good for the quality of ingredients, and we all left feeling satisfied.
I would recommend Tsunami and look forward To my next visit

Wonderful food and lovely atmosphere. They had re-arranged the restaurant to give everyone plenty of space and made several changes to ensure everyone is safe during lockdown.

The food came quickly and was delicious, highly recommend the pork belly.

Would definitely recommend!

Was recommended by one of my friends and was super convenient as it’s just round the corner from me so thought I’d go with my boyfriend and it didn’t disappoint! Was our first meal out in months thanks to lockdown, and the food was amazziiinngg. Yes it’s not the cheapest restaurant you’ll go to but the quality was worth it. My friend recommended the truffle beef which was one of the more expensive items but I’m so glad I had it - the FLAVOUR 😍 and we also got the grilled scallops (which come in a flaming shell) and the flavour of the sauuccee there - divine. Also they do a banging espresso martini. Oh and all the staff were super super polite and friendly, and credit to them for having to wear masks and gloves for ridiculously long hours - thank you all! ❤️

Quality is always top.
Top dishes: kataifi prawns and sashimi.
Unfortunately, it is even more pricey than before.

Sushi was ok, mains were average at best. Disappointed the restaurant is not passing on the reduced VAT to customers and they have increased their prices, taking advantage of customers. There are better local restaurants to support.

Amazing experience again with great food. We had a table outside so we felt safe and cared for although it was our first restaurant experience since pre-lockdown. The evening was great - it reminded us why this was our favourite establishment to celebrate or simply enjoy sushi. The cocktails are outstanding too. Highly recommend

Have been here many times. This was first time under social distancing measures and the staff made it seem like second nature. Definitely reflects the restaurant's commitment to its staff and clients. As usual the friendly staff and delicious food made me happy to be able to dine here again.

So happy Tsunami is open once again as love the food. They’ve spent a lot of effort on social distancing measures so I felt very safe. Only negative was there was a very noisy table so shame the manager didn’t ask them to be quiet.

Francisco has been really warm and welcoming with us from the first moment we have arrived. Nice touch the QR code menu (glad I didn’t touch someone else’s menu).
All the staff wearing branded masks, alcohol gel all around the restaurant, warning signals, but privacy in tables keeping and feeling same environment as before. I’m really glad we booked here, really safe place, brilliant service and amazing food. Perfect dinner. We will repeat for sure, given the situation, there are not so many places caring about their team and their customers. Greatly surprised.

The food was great always good in there but the service is shocking on a Saturday night to only have 2 waiters actively on the floor meant everything was so slow. It wasn’t even that busy in there. What seem to be the manager was trying to serve people while wearing a hat and trainers not the dress code for management just a bit in loved by staff food great

We have been to Tsunami multiple times and the service is always outstanding. The food then trumps the service (especially my favourite, the truffle beef), and the Resturant just oozes quality. Definitely recommend to anyone who hasn’t been before.

2nd time dining in Tsunami and will go again.Lively restaurant(we were there on a Friday night) and every table seemed to be taken.Staff were excellent(and very busy).Good varied menu which should suit all tastes and you can get a bottle of wine at a fairly reasonable price(£27 for Cabernet Sauvignon).Particular food favourites were Seaweed salad , mixed tempura Teriyaki Chicken and Duck breast.

I’ve been before but I wanted my friend to try it.

The food was good but due to the service it took a long time to receive it.

Also the wine options weren’t great.

My Thai Ginger cocktail was dramatic and tasty.

Grateful to Anna for giving us a discount due to the service.

Service was sketchy. Had to ask four times for our drinks. Went to front desk to pay for bill rather than waiting. At no point was told it was a set menu that night. Food was excellent but wouldn't have ordered half of it ourselves and there was too much.

Overall a great evening, the set menu for Valentines was suitable for almost everyone and was a nice taster experience. Only downside is the price (you're in Clapham not Chelsea so don't charge £7 for a pint) and the time we waited between meals (roughly 30min). Otherwise a great experience.

The overall service was poor on all fronts. We were seated for almost twenty minutes before we were able to order, despite other diners who came in after us being served.
A waiter then proceeded to crush a huge fly on our table with our sparkling water bottle and just left it there!
There was a group of 6 dining whilst we were there and they seemed to get preferential treatment over all other diners even though the restaurant was not busy.
