Tsunami is a Sushi place in Achrafieh that I visited 2 or 3 years back and liked it. I never went back there again since it was impossible to find a parking spot and I hate giving my car to valet.

Nevertheless, I found out by mistake that it had opened near O&C, on the Jal el Dib highway, so I thought I would give it a try. I called and reserved and went there on a Saturday late in the afternoon.

The place looked nice from the inside but it was tiny. Everything was small, the chairs, the tables, the empty spaces between the tables, even the sushi once we ordered them.

The food was ok but portions were tiny and it took a lot of time to get to us. The menu was very varied and there were lots of specialties worth trying. Some of the things I tried was their authentic women’s mistake salmon-based and some banana wrapped makis which were delicious.

However I was still annoyed by how small and uncomfortable the place was. It reminded me of Torinos pub in Gemmayze on a Saturday night.

Overall, I would rather order take out instead of going there again to be honest because of the claustrophobic feel.
