It was amazing to watch these sushi masters working. Such skills with their knives cutting these little pieces of flavor with a highly choreographed handiwork. They were dressing the pieces with some great sauces. This is really California fusion sushi and reminds me of what I eat at the beach in Los Angeles. I will definitely hit this place again... More

Best advice is to sit at the bar and have the thinking done for you is to get there early especially when it is half price on Wednesday and Friday. Otherwise, you can expect to wait 30 minutes or so as it gets super busy.

We have eaten a lot of sushi in our travels. This was some of the best we have had. You have a lot of resterant choices in Jaco. This place is worth a try if you are looking for fresh and tasty sushi. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Chefs know their stuff.

The service was very very good and the place is very very busy, so get there early. You can make reservations online or by phone and that is helpful to have even on weekdays as they do the half price rolls on Wednesday and Friday and it gets absolutely packed in there.

Drove to Jaco on Friday and asked a shop owner where would be a great place to eat. She suggested Tsunami Sushi plus on Friday a good part of the menu was half price. Sushi for a good price? We had to check it out. We ordered and tasted and were totally surprised. Great taste excellent presentation and outstanding service.... More

My wife always has the veggie sushi and I have the teriyaki steak, both of which are excellent. The sushi is probably the best price in Jaco. It's on the 2nd floor, so if you get a window table-for-two you can watch Jaco life go by on the sidewalk and street below. Full bar, great service and food.

For dinner, we brought a large piece of tuna that we caught during the day... Tsunami's artists prepared the same fish about 10 different ways, both raw and cooked-- sashimi, sushi rolls, handrolls, grilled, marinated... What a treat, and at a rather reasonable price per person. Matt, the Manager, speaks both English and Spanish, and knows how to treat customers... More

We got there an hour before they opened, The waiter came out, offered us a place to sit in the shade with complimentary beverages: Enough said. As its sibling in Escazu: Excellent attention, great good food. Definitely will return.
