Hubby and I followed the Lonely Planet recommendations and ended up at Tsukiji market at 5am for a sushi breakfast. It was a bit confusing to locate Daiwa as it doesn't have an English sign. However, note that it will be one of the two restaurants on that block with big crowds outside. My experience at Daiwa was a bit... More

Queued up for an hour and half and was worth the wait. The shop was very packed, much smaller than imagined, but had the authentic feel. Hearty breakfast with fresh sushi from the famous Tsukiji fish market, with varieties not found in hometown. The meal is pretty costly but definitely worth the price and wait.

This is by far the BEST sushi I've had in my life! Everything was fresh and definitely well worth the queue. Be sure to order the ootoro aburi which is SUCH a delight! More thorough review with pictures here http://floraisabelle.com/tsukiji-market-sushi-daiwa/

I actually went here on a normal weekday (Tuesday) and waited in line only for about 30 mins, so it wasn't too bad. My friends and I went here pretty late (at around 10am) but the line wasn't terrible, and the turnaround/service was very quick. I paid about US$35 for the omakase, but then we went ahead and ordered about... More

The waiting in line was definitely worth it! The sushi was so fresh and delicious. I never thought that i can eat so much so early in the morning. The atmosphere in the restaurant was wonderful and the chefs were very nice. This is not a cheap breakfast but it worths every yen!!!

I would say Daiwa Sushi is my best meal in Tokyo. Since the food is best and you don't have to queue up for to long. Otoro sushi is 490 Yen/ piece only. I love this place and would definitely go back in my next visit to Tokyo.

I usually don't listen to Visitors' advice on Tokyo restaurants because food in other Countries are not as good as in Tokyo. I wouldn't queue up to eat here. I'd rather pay and eat at the Michelin star Sushi even if it's only 1 star.

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
