I came to eat at Tsunami for lunch recently with my daughter and thought the food and service was great. I sat at the end of the sushi bar and the sushi chef and waitress was very helpful in answering my questions. I've never had sushi before and they provided great recommendations. Overall the food tasted great, all the staff was friendly, and was given everything I needed before I asked. The only problem I had with Tsunami was atmosphere. It had a very bland look to it, and throughout my meal, I kept hearing yelling from the kitchen. I'm guessing it was a kitchen manager, but every couple minutes I kept hearing someone screaming "dumba**" or "idiot" or a variety of things. I came to eat with my daughter and did not expect her to hear anything like that while we ate. I hoped the yelling would stop so that we could enjoy a peaceful meal, but eventually we had to leave due to it. I'm not sure I would return due to the atmosphere, but possibly since the service and sushi was great. If you do decide to go, ask for V or Vinny, they're great.

All I have to say is this.... I have been going to Tsunami for several years and have ALWAYS gotten nothing but (1) great service (2) good food and (3) great value! The staff and owner greet me with kind faces and act like they are genuinely glad to see me! The food -whether it is sushi or the hibachi grill has always been delicious and fresh and I FAR prefer it over Nakato's or Kabuto's. I just dont think you can get a better value for the buck! I always use my Valpak coupon which only makes the value even better. As far as the "background" noise coming from the kitchen from another review... maybe someone was having a super bad day and unfortunately you and your daughter were the victims of the conversation. My guess is that if you go in and speak with the owner and tell him your issue -he will be happy to make things right! I just feel like if I am unhappy with a place the best thing to do is tell the owner to give them an opportunity to make it better! Give it another try!
It was my first time there at Sogos and it was very nice. I love the place. The service was great. I had plenty of food and it was so good. The shrimp sauce tasted just right. Most places has bad shrimp sauce. The chef was great. He did a great show and had good conversation with the customers. The wait was long but it was worth it i mean...when you go to any restraunt you would have to wait for a long time. When you go to Japanese Restaraunt you got to have patience because you going to be waiting in line and even sittin for at least 30-40 min for the food to be cook. The managers Phan and Tran was really nice. If anybodii wants to have a good time with their family you must go eat at Sogos. I've been to Ichiban, and Yamayi but, they're not even close to Sogo.
