For my buck, this and Fusha are the two better sushi places in the area. One reason that i prefer to come here is the second floor dining and the real green tea ice cream (not the flavorless card board that is served in 80% of the sushi places, including Fusha). The rolls are ok, don't get the spicy crunchy maki combo, the regular rolls are much better, the sushi itself is good, the service is great. The interior used to be better. I hate the white tile sports bar that they now look like, so I only eat upstairs. The booths used to be the reason I came here so often. They added charm to the place. A pity they removed so many of them.

Had the spicy salmon, eel avocado & white tuna w/scallion rolls...all really delicious!

I read some of the bad reviews and can't believe ppl don't like their rolls stuffed with FISH-sushi is fish right? I don't want rolls stuffed with rice. I hate paying for sushi, which is expensive b/c fish is expensive, and getting a tiny piece of fish engulfed by rice, so much rice i can't even taste my fish. I like tenzan b/c i get what i paid for-fish. It's tasty too, though it is inconsistent sometimes, I've gotten my food take-away several times and it was a little spoiled, but when i eat in it's good. They need to be consistent with freshness.

Been going to this place for two years, and this is the final time that I will go here. The sushi is sometimes outstanding. I say, why pay more when this place serves great stuff!? But the majority of time, I end up disappointed. The sushi is sometimes so flavorless, old-tasting, and mushy that it is inedible. Tenzan is just too inconsistent.

Like many reviewers posted, the sushi rolls at this restaurant have very little rice, and a lot more of the fish and other things inside. The trouble is though the rolls are extremely mushy and not held together well. Didn't enjoy them too much. Tried some of the regular rolls and some of the special rolls. The special rolls were tastier at least, but even more difficult to eat because they were quite big and extremely mushy so most of them fell apart. Was disappointed in all the rolls. The misu soup was good though, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was really great. It's a very nice setting, very clean, and had people coming in and out on a Saturday night. A great place to get together with friends and in groups. I would try something other than the sushi rolls though.

I have been a fan for years now. They don't put too much rice-unlike the other uws places that cheat you out of the seafood. Also, their roles are fresh, fresh, fresh. Take out is also good. Maybe they don't make the best creative rolls, but for good, fresh and simple fish, I prefer this restaurant. If sashimi is good, then you have a winner!

Here is the the deal. Tenzan really does make sushi rolls with very little rice, and lots of fish. You may or may not like that, but if you like high fish content, you will love it. I don't really like such high fish content and have sworn off the rolls. However, this place is still great. Stick with the actual sushi or sashimi, or the special rolls. The Katsu and teriyaki are also better than most. This place is a great neighborhood find and worth going (and we go often). Just decide what you like and go for it.
