Truth is, I went to Tsunami many, many, many years ago and I was not impressed. So as a plethora of restaurants opened in the Cooper Young area, we tried them and ignored Tsunami. However, for the past several years, Tsunami has been recommended by...More

The two of us split the Asian Nacho's and although it was very tasty, the serving was extremely small and way overpriced. Then we tried the bacon wrapped dates and it too was very good. But again, very small, but it was priced accordingly. Finally,...More

This is a very good restaurant! I mean very good!! Great food, good service and all done at very reasonable prices. The dates in bacon were divine as were the meatballs! It's worth tracking this place down when you are in Memphis.

With exposed brick walled interiors, warm cozy candle-lit ambiance, cool decor, an upscale urban aura, great menu featuring fresh seasonal ingredients and an excellent wine selection – Tsunami sure did...More

My husband and I have been to dinner here, the food is great, and the service was good. It is very small and romantic.

The restaurant is in a good location and the menu seemed to offer attractive items, but the actual execution was sub par. The pot-sticker filling was so hard I could not chew it. The entree was not impressive. However, the soup was delicious. Overall, the...More

Tried Tsunami for the second time after a not-so-great first time. Well, my wife and I are glad we did. It was really very good. We sat on the patio and loved every course that we got. The Black Bean Soup was on point. Yum!...More

This restaurant is a complete stand out place. With one night in Memphis and a little bit of jet lag we were looking to find somewhere good to eat. We were recommended a BBQ joint nearby (which looked fantastic) but didn't have the energy for...More
