Worth the Wait

Come early (5:30am at the latest) and expect to wait 2-3 hours. But once you get in get ready for an excellent sushi meal. The inside is very tight so squeeze in and make friends. The staff is super friendly and attentive and welcoming to tourists. I ordered the larger chef's choice menu and all... read more

Visited it in the morning, arrived at about 4.40am, and had to queue for about 5 hours before it was my turn. If it's Spring or Summer, bring an umbrella as the sun will definitely be out before you get into the restaurant, and believe me, it will definitely be well appreciated. The service was friendly and efficient, and the... More

Great place to get fresh sushi in the early hours. Everything in the menu is great, friendly chef and good service. Worth to pay for the price and the early morning wake up call.

My boyfriend and I woke up early to catch the first train we could going to Tsukiji which was about 5am on the local train heading for Ginza. When we arrived there at about 5:45am there was already quite a line. Mind you this was a Saturday, but it worked best for us with our jet lag. We waited 4... More

I was a little skeptical about going at first and in actuality almost didn't go, just because I knew it was mostly hype and I think it would be such a waste to kill what limited days I would have in Japan waiting in line, but man, AM I SO GLAD I WENT!!! The day before my last, I visited... More

Great edomae style sushi, the chefs were very friendly too. After waiting nearly three hours it was nice just to sit down, but the food and service went a long way towards justifying the wait. Needless to say everything was exceptionally fresh. One of the standouts would be the optional oyster at the end. Fascinating walk around the fish markets... More

We chanced upon this place at 4.30 in the morning when we tried to get to the Tsukiji Market. Like most other visitors, we waited for more than 3 hours before we could get into the little shop. The fun thing was chatting with other travellers in the queue and peeping into the shop when we got close to the... More

We arrived there at around 8.30-9 in the morning and waited until way past 12 in the noon before we get to go in the restaurant! Everyone have to queue for an average of 3 hours for their turn go in. The verdict? It's definitely worth my time. Because it was so delicious. They have definitely spoil my tongue. Every... More

Went there twice during my 2-week trip. Reach around 4am on the first time and could only get it during the third batch which was around 7am. Went earlier around 3am the next time and got in first batch. The sushi was delicious and the chefs were warm and friendly. The chefs will tell you the name of each fish... More

We got in line at sushidai at 6 am. Sat down to eat the set at 12 pm. It may sound silly, but it was good bonding experience as a couple waiting 6 hours and the excitement that came as we went from waiting hours to minutes. Hunger builds, and we eat 11 delicious individual sushi pieces in 30 minute... More
