Impressive. Everything about Tsunami is impressive, from the large bamboo moon-like globe, that is more like a piece of art than a light fitting, to the slick leather booths and impeccable service from the polite waitresses that do not miss a trick. I would definitely say that this restaurant challenges Nobu in London and Dubai.
Incredibly fresh food like art, scallops flaming in a shell, flame underneath with the shell on top, in a creamy caviar sauce. The yellow fin tuna sashimi; raw and delicate with a coriander chilli sauce and oh the lamb cutlets. They were the pièce de résistance, such high quality meat, honey glazed soft little tiny pieces arranged prettily, so nice sweet tender. The eel and prawn dumplings, which I was tentative about, tasted expensive, melt in your mouth, salty and light, I could have had several plates more.
The prawn tempura was the least interesting, but nice, spicy and creamy. With excellent wine of course. The most pleasing aspect about the whole experience, was how exclusive it all felt. My friends and I sat in a circle facing each other in a little leather booth, it did not feel like we were in a busy restaurant and the presentation of the food was so artfully done, it felt like our table was receiving special treatment from the chef and the waitresses.
Tsunami pay extra attention to details, and I cannot wait to go back again and try more sashimi from the exquisite menu. This is the perfect place for a special date or you could spend an evening here with friends before going out in the West End. They also do takeaway, if you want a high end meal for lunch and or dinner and you can reserve a table online-which I recommend you do, either online or you can telephone them, otherwise you may be waiting over an hour for a table. Tsunami is always and hopefully will always be a a popular favourite for the food connoisseur.
