Fabulous experience - after watching the tuna auction, we had the best sushi I've ever had for breakfast. I can't say I'm a sushi aficionado like some naysayers here, but it tasted pretty darned great to me.

We had to, since we made our way to Tsujiki market in the wee hours of the morning. The sushi was as fresh as they come, at a price (an assortment of 7 pieces @ ¥35000, I think). The joint sits about 10-12 people, so we 'eat and go'. The sushi chefs/staff were friendly but there wasn't room to have... More

We arrived at the market at roughly 7am hoping to get a table at Sushi Dai but the queue looked immense. Instead we opted to join the comparatively shorter queue at Daiwa sushi just around the corner. After a 45minute wait we were in! The restaurant is petite and tightly packed but the atmosphere was great. The sushi chefs showed... More

You go to the fish wholesale market and expect the amazing. You queue forever and think it's worth it. But ultimately you end up in a below average sushi shack which is not only worn off, but also a bit filthy. The sushi here is not amazing, and it's been one of the most disappointing food experiences in Tokyo. Plus... More

Having read the fish market reviews etc we worked out our plan of attack. Arrived just on 9am and wandered around the markets till about 10ish. We saw some great sites. We then lined up for a sushi breakfast. We were in a line that to start with, I thought would never move and then suddenly we were next. The... More

We came here at about 10am after hearing the reviews about this place. Fortunately for us we only lined up for about 10-15 minutes rather than the 2+ hours others have encountered. Cost was 7,600 yen for two people and you get 8 pieces of sushi and one sushi roll, plus miso soup and tea. Service was very fast and... More

Arrived at Tsukiji around 6:30 a.m. and the line at Sushi Dai was unbelievably unbearable! Finally i opted for the venerable Daiwa Sushi next door, luckily managed to secure a seat without queuing as i traveled alone. I'm sure the queue didn't move faster than Sushi Dai judging from from my experience. Expect to sit elbow to elbow at the... More

The plan was to go for Sushi Dai but we came late and the queue was too long. Heard about Daiwa and was reecommended before; and saw the queue moved fast even though it was rather long. It was definitely below my expectation. While a few sushi was fresh, overall they were not that great. I had much higher expectation... More

The queue for this shop is amazingly long. Waited close to 2.5 hours after the Tsukiji auction ended for the sushi here. Cost per person for the “Trust the Chef” set which comprise of 11 pieces of sushi at the cost of 4000 yen. The sushi here is no doubt fresh, and the chef serves the sushi one at a... More

That day, we woke up at 3:45 to not miss the tuna auction. We succeed, and when the tour finished, before the market open, we did the only thing possible: eating sushi at 7 am! We went in this place, where there was a quite huge queue outside. However, as you expect from a real Japanese, they were perfectly managing... More
