This is one of my favorite restaurants in Memphis! It's a smallish place but has great art and cool decor. I could eat nothing but their potsticker appetizers and ginger donuts, but their entrees are great as well. Try the seabass, the scallops, or one of the small plates if you're not a big eater.

The restaurant seems to be up to date, good accurate food, but we were very dissappointed from the service. first of all we were seated in a room with nobody else, while there was another room full of people dining. We assumed that there will be people coming, but all of them were seated in the other room. It was... More

The scallops were possibly the best I have ever had and the mussel appetizer was light, tasty and just the right spicy.

Tsunami was the spot of choice for seven friends to meet for a retirement celebration and general fun time together. We were seated in a comfortable area with plenty of room. Service was spot on - very patient as we took a few attempts to be ready to order at every step. She continued to be a great combination of... More

We always go to Tsunami for special occasions because this stalwart of Cooper-Young's restaurant explosion never disappoints. Chef Ben Smith's riffs on Pacific Rim flavors are always fresh and exciting, from the ijakaya (appetizers) to the small plates and mains. His signature is the sea bass on black rice, but we also love the Asian nachos, beet salad, shrimp potstickers,... More

Have had the pleasure of dinning multiple times at Tsunami and the food is consistently top notch. If you fully appreciate true gastronomy, you'll be pleasantly surprised with their kitchen. The ambience is upscale urban with a good wine selection and moderate prices for this level of dinning. Have their own parking lot which makes it easy to park. A... More

We love this place for the Izakaya plates that are so interesting and fun as well of the perfectly sized small plates that are enough if you share a dessert of appetizer. Their fish entrees are always fresh and delicious.

The atmosphere of the quaint joint is very nice. The food and chef are awesome! By far the Sea Bass with black tie rice is the best sea bass I have every had!!! The food and experience is wonderful! If you like fish and especially sea bass you must try it!

I've been coming here for many years with family and friends. The mainly Asian- twist on seafood is consistently well executed. The sea bass is a favorite. This time I ordered two smaller items - pork meatballs with lemongrass and cold noodles. They were both excellent and filled me up. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and I will be... More
