I have to confess, I eat at Tsunami at least twice a month – it's my favourite ‘local’ although it's not within walking distance. Not only do I eat here fortnightly, for the most part I eat nearly the same dishes each time: favourites include yellowtail jalapeno, duck and fois gras nigiri, beef with a truffle and terriyaki sauce, king crab tempura, tamago… The blackened cod is very good, though I usually find it too rich to eat often, both here and at Nobu…
Pretty much anything you'd expect to find in a good Japanese restaurant is here, including really fresh sashimi – there aren't many places I'd eat raw scallops, but I do here often.
The decor is ‘dressed’ regularly, though it could really do with the kind of overhaul that requires shutting it for a couple of weeks… We have our favourite staff, our water appears on our favourite table, they know which wine we like, they always accommodate us – what more could I ask? And as for the poor lady who complained about a lack of plates and attention, I can assure you that really must have been an exceptional event – I must have eaten here over a hundred times, and never experienced anything like that – genuinely!
There are times you want to get dressed up and head into town. Sometimes you just want to go local, wear your crappy cardigan and just enjoy the food. Don't expect this to be a particularly cheap option though – sashimi grade fish and shellfish is expensive wherever you go! I'll see you there…
