A real birthday treat
Taste bud heaven, Delicious starters to share, particularly the crab and chicken. Mains to suit every taste. Greta cocktails too. I loved the way I was offered a glass of water straight away on arrival and glass continued to be filled. Superb Viognier and the service was fantastic. even candles with my dessert.
Never fails to deliver!
Tsunami Clapham - always a great experience. The Gin Dara is amazing!
Still my favourite
I have been here many times. Still love this place. I can highly recommend it. Go for the lamb chops and the black cod.
Lovely food, fantastic service
My first visit with my girlfriend. Firstly food starters main courses and sides tasted lovely and well presented, and the cocktails superb. All customers appeared happy and the service was excellent by a lovely friendly Eastern European waitress. However I think the restaurant was let down by the dowdy looking decor we arrived in daylight at 7pm (although I did see in a previous review that the restaurant looks so much better in the night time with different lighting etc). The price felt expensive for what we had but I understand that if you arrive before 7pm you get a 20% discount which would make the bill about right! Despite my comments we will return because the food and service were top!
A great evening
Tsunami were very accomodating and after a lovely meal with friends kept the bar open for a long while whilst other friends joined us for drinks, we have dined at Tsuanmi many times and always look forward to going back .
The food in tsunami, is amazing!! Everything I have tasted (and it's a lot!!!) was so tasty, and so light, even the fried ones. I have been there several times and I would certainly go again!!!
Great place with tasty food. Sashimi was very fresh. Looking forward to going back to try more dishes. Not great value for those with big appetites as dishes are quite small.
Always great food here. If
Always great food here. If you try anything try the snow crab siu mai and the lamb cutlets!
Amazing food & cocktails, relaxed environment that is classy yet not snooty.
Enjoyed the champagne lunch
Had the Champagne lunch at Tsunami in Clapham this weekend. Service was good, sushi was good and the champagne was topped up regularly. The main and desserts were slightly underwhelming but still good value overall.
Great food at the good price
The crab and prawn dumplings are delicious, you have to try them. Sushi is really good (even though I'm not a fan of mayo on top if it). Price is absolutely fair for the quality and the service (30 each for appetizers and sushi + half beer each).
Dinnner last Friday
We had a booking for 6.30pm as this was the only available time with an online booking...turning up closer to 7 was no issue for them so a good start. Food was amazing; good quality, fresh and consistently well prepared. The staff were prompt and polite while our table was regularly cleared so we had plenty of space. Impressed as always with these restaurants and would recommend for anyone looking for decent Japanese food...as Japanese is my girlfriends favourite type of food and she always enjoys!
I made a booking with a friend as a very last minute idea on a Saturday night (basically looking for sushi in Clapham) and we were both so satisfied with our meal and even still thinking about it the next day. The food was lovely, service was good, great wine (we didn't try the cocktails but they looked amazing). It's a slightly formal environment, although we were pretty casual and still felt comfortable. Great to have a good local sushi place, I'm just about to re-book for this Saturday!
Really good food. Sushi are amazing. Really impress by the duck and the rib eye on the hot rock. Just a little bit disappoint by the pannacota. It was tasty but more simple than expected when we are reading in the menu. Overall amazing experience, we will definitely go back.
Best Japanese food in the area...
Tsunami is the best Japanese restaurant in an area that is poorly served for this cuisine. The staff are very helpful and attentive. The food is quite expensive, this however is reasonable as the ingredients have to be high quality. The sushi is very good with some excellent speciality rolls and all the tempura selections are too. Having been only twice so far can only comment on the dishes tried. The eel is pleasant although the restaurant would do well to find a better supplier this can be so much more succulent. Will definitely go again....
Can't wait to go back!
Amazing food, amazing service - great variety on the menus... both food and cocktails!!
Wonderful service, great food
Had a lovely dinner at Tsunami in Clapham. Waitress and host were welcoming, polite and explained the food. A more expensive meal than some resturants, but wonderful dumplings, udon noodle soup and sashimi. Staff and decor were excellent.
We had dinner at Tsunami in
We had dinner at Tsunami in Clapham, where we are regular visitors. A very enjoyable evening with a combination of good, interesting cocktails, excellent food and a reasonable wine list. The menu keeps evolving, but with the signature dishes retained, however a high quality of ingredients, cooking and presentation continue to be maintained. Although prices are generally reasonable, the cost of the black cod dish is now very high.
Best Japanese restaurant
6th visit here and never disappoints.
Food, service and surroundings were perfect.
We will be back for another delicious meal very soon.
Worth every penny!!!
Tsunami - Clapham
My son recommended Tsunami - Clapham to me. I took the family there for a celebration and there were 6 of us in total. We got there around 8 and the place was buzzing. The menu was quite varied with a good selection of starters and main course dishes. Every one was happy with their selection. Food was very nicely prepared and my sashimi was fresh and full of flavour. Service was friendly though staff were very busy. A very good experience.
the food was superb. However
the food was superb. However the portions were quite small.
This was not my first time at Tsunami and it will not be my last. The sushi is delicious and presentation flawless. The staff are friendly and helpful and aware of gluten free options (they also have a GF menu!) which is a bonus!
Amazing contemporaneity Asian food.
All the dishes we had were super yummy and packed full of flavour.
Staff were all nice and service could not be faulted.
A touch on the expensive side but well worth the pennies!
I cant wait to go back!
Tsunami has become my favourite place to go out for dinner! Excellent food, drinks and service! I take all my friends there!! I certainly recommend it!!!
Great atmosphere and service.
A really fun place with a great atmosphere.Dark and lively.Good food too.Service excellent.Decor a little worn in places.Overall superb.
As good as ever! Another great
As good as ever! Another great meal on a busy Saturday night; just managed to get a table at the last minute and wasn't disappointed. Staff are unfailingly polite and helpful and menu advice is always forthcoming for those unfamiliar with the menu. The only hiccup in an otherwise terrific evening was due to the rather dim lighting when I tucked into a huge sushi sized pile of wasabi thinking it was an actual sushi - not a mistake I'll ever make again!
Our favourite local restaurant
We don't go often enough, the food here is so good! We love the appetisers particularly the prawns and chicken dishes, and found that several of those plus a beef main was enough for the two and a half of us (our 10yr old daughter came too and ate pretty much everything) Service is helpful and courteous, they use linen napkins (precisionist (apparently the other word i used is 'inappropriate', look it up in a thesaurus) i know but I think its important), and the value is excellent.
Great food, reasonably priced
I was very happy at the quality of food and service here. The waiters are very helpful and don't attempt to make you over order. What they suggested was a perfect amount of food and I was very surprised (in a good way) when the bill came. I'll definitely be going back!
Fabulous as always
Love Tsunami in every way and as ever, it didn't disappoint. Added bonus was also that as we booked our table before 7pm we got a discount on the food part of our bill!!
Not bad, and certainly better than any other local sushi option, is always my takeaway here. The service is a bit worse than the one in Charlotte Street, and invariably the various dishes seem to turn up in a funny order. This time we had warm sushi rolls before sashimi, which was rather peculiar. Also not really ideal that they served the sushi rolls on one gigantic plate that we then had to pass around a group of 7, rather than having two separate plates for each end of the table. All the same food was pretty good and the service if slightly odd, was perfectly pleasant.
This little restaurant never fails to impress. I don't think there is a single dish on the menu that I wouldn't devour happily. Will return again soon - especially when you get 20% off pre 7pm, and 50% on the cocktails!
Great experience. Amazing
Great experience. Amazing food, will definitely go back.
I took my wife for her Birthday
I took my wife for her Birthday Lunch here and took advantage of the Brunch promotion £30 or £50 with unlimited champagne (2 hrs staff were generous and did not strictly adhere to the 2 hour rule)
Plenty of good food (beef Tataki was a bit of a let down - sinewy & quite thick) but everything else was great.
They also put a lovely little sparkler with dessert which was a nice touch...charging £2 for the pleasure.
All in all Good food , good ambience , Good fun and Pretty good value.
Excellent food, really good. Soft shell crab accompanying salad amazing, black cod always exceptional. Could still do with an extra toilet for a large place, but hey. Cracking.
We are regulars at Tsunami
We are regulars at Tsunami in Clapham and as far as the high quality of Japanese food is concerned, i believe this restaurant offers the best value for money in London.It was relatively quiet on a Sunday evening with only just over half the tables occupied, but the food was as good as ever. Excellent new style sashimi, Gyozas, crispy and light tempura, and excellent black cod. Lobster rolls made a delicious end to the meal. Well priced wine list with a good choice of wines by the glass as well. I would strongly recommend Tsunami - the Nobu factor may be missing, but it is more than made up for with the food and sincere service.
An excellent experience
We have lived in Clapham a couple of years now and finally got around to trying Tsunami - wish we had tried earlier! Really good and not disappointed, great atmosphere, nice design, dark, classy, great ambience. Very professional yet friendly service, and the food was incredible!!!!
We had a great meal at tsunami, great food especially the sushi was to die for. Although the staff was very friendly, we did not get our drinks until we finished our starter when we ordered them the same time as the food.
Lovely food, great value but the service is terrible!? Maybe because they were so rushed off their feet.
A great place to eat - plenty
A great place to eat - plenty of choice for all tastes.
Very happy camper
We had a lovely dinner here. Service was really good, they were attentive and polite. Food and cocktails were amazing. Food portions may be a little small for the cost but the taste overides that. Nice decor and ambience. Would recommend to any japanese food lovers or to anyone not quite sure about it as this will change your mind!
Food was amazing - staff were fabulous - absolutely loved it! Everyone must try the Volcano Rolls!!!
Outstanding food; a bit slow
The food was great! I wish i could have ordered everything on the menu. The service was very friendly but between appetizers and mains the restaurant filled up and they kept us waiting a while. It was definitely worth it and I will definitely go back, but there's room to improve the overall experience.
Great food and atmosphere
Dinner for two on Friday night. Very good service and as usual great food. Recommend th scallops and black cod.
My favourite place for outdoor eating!! I have enjoyed every time I went there!! I strongly recommend it for every occasion if you need something special!!!
Excellent as always!
Food was incredible, it really is amazing. We took a couple of friends along and they said is was some of the tastiest, best prepared food they have every eaten (Japanese or otherwise). The Wasabi beef and Teriyaki chicken were highlights for me. I have scored down slightly this time as they were very busy and the staff weren't quite as efficient and attentive as they usually are - needed to attract their attention a few times which to be fair you don't normally have to do here. Overall a great dining experience, great atmosphere, classy without being pretentious. Very highly recommended.
Beautifully presented and
Beautifully presented and tasty food. The sushi is definitely the star of the show with the other starters (gyoza and salt and pepper squid) being not quite so spectacular but still very edible! Cocktails are lovely. Not a cheap place to eat, but worth the money. I did not try the mains but they also looked good on other people's tables.
worth the price
The food was tasty and well made. Cocktails were great. The place is full of late twenties daters. Nice ambience and quiet enough to talk.
Went for a evening dinner. Service was great, really friendly staff and the food was delicious.
Food is always of an exceptionally high standard. It's a pity the service staff do not match this high standard.
Staff are slow to seat you, take your order, don't return to see if you need more drinks and generally a bit moody.
But did I mention how amazing the food is!
Great birthday dinner for my husband. Seafood tempura and salt and pepper squid were delicious. Ribeye with truffle sauce was ridiculously tasty as was the pork belly. Cocktails well made and service was attentive. The only bad point was the lobster maki - the lobster was definitlely not fresh (has that metallic taste). The portion size of the rice and noodles were a bit on the small size as well. But overall it was a great meal and I will be going back for sure!
