Best sushi ever

We didn't wake early enough for the tuna auction but no way we were missing this. The best sushi I've ever had, and I've eaten at some outstanding sushi restaurants. The toro literally melts in your mouth. They don't let you linger but they are incredibly friendly, especially given the volume of... read more

After seeing the tuna auction at Tsukiji, we chose Daiwa since the lines at Sushi Dai were ridiculous. We still waited about 40 minutes in some light sprinkles, finally eating at around 7:30 am. The wait was worth it though! The best oo-toro I had throughout our Japan trip was at Daiwa. We had the Y3500 set menu and were... More

We stood in line here for over an hour because of the hype and the restaurant itself is very small and narrow. The sushi was good, fresh and tasty. The chef we got was very nice, but didnt speak a word english. Because of this we ended up getting two extra sushi pieces which we did not ask for, but... More

I went in April of '14, NOT in August but that date is not available in the dropdown... The sushi was on point. The service was on point. I felt welcomed and NOT rushed. Rather the sushi-put-together-er explained well what it was I was given. I asked for one item to be replaced by another since I am no fan... More

I believe Dai is more popular but Daiwa came recommended by a friend who knows and he was right - this was great. Waited about 30 minutes. Don't get the set menu - order a la carte - and if you see something new / different, try it!

The queue is pretty long outside and the restaurant is very small. In fact it's two individual ''restaurants'' of 10 places each one, located next to each other. But you must definitively wait, because the sushis are just excellent. The best sushis I ate in my life. Their made in front of you at the moment. The staff is very... More

I wouldn't call myself a sushi 'connoisseur' necessarily, but it is my favorite meal and I am enthusiastic about seeking out great new places here in L.A. and around the world when I get the opportunity to travel. I had the pleasure of visiting Japan with a friend last year, and we decided to give the sushi breakfast at Tsukiji... More

We went to Daiwa Sushi right after our tuna auction, and lined up for maybe an hour? Sushi Daiwa had the shorter line so we lined up for this one and not Dai Sushi. Once we were seated, everything was in fast motion from there! Service was FAST! Piece after piece of sushi and a miso soup were served to... More

There has been numerous reviews of bloggers and netizens saying that Sushi Daiwa is probably the best sushi restaurant in Tokyo, I beg to differ. After queuing for about an hour (which started at 6 am), I ordered the 3500 set menu and even did a bit of Omakase when I finished the set. I have to admit the sushi... More

I've never had sushi this good - worth the cost and the one hour wait! We arrived around 6 am and were seated a little after 7:15. The line was busy on a Monday morning and we did see the attendant asking people to wait to get in line so that the street would remain at least halfway clear -... More

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
