sushi, Japanese cuisine and sake lounge in the Gold Coast

Tsunami is a higher-end Japanese restaurant in the Gold Coast that features a sushi bar, Japanese cuisine, and a lounge where you can enjoy premium sakes.

Tsunami has several veg-friendly appetizers, a vegetarian sushi plate, and a couple of veg-friendly main entrees. The servers are more than happy to answer (or research) the veg status of dishes.

Tsunami is a place I go to every once in a while because they have some decent veg options. My favorites are the agedashi tofu (I have gotten them to leave out the bonito flakes). I have also gotten the seared tofu entree, which I have always found quite good.

Beware that the miso soup contains bonito stock. If you're unsure, be sure to ask the staff.

I visited again recently, and noticed that they had added a small section to their sushi menu with vegetarian/vegan options, which made me really happy.
