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

All you people here saying how close this sushi it is to sushi dai, I am here to prove you are wrong. We went sushi dai day before and it was off the chain, today we wanted to go again but didn't want to wait. After read the reviews here we decided to go daiwa sushi since it has no... More

We went to Tsukiji fish market wanting to try the famous Sushi Dai, but upon realizing that the line is probably 3 hours long, we had no patience waiting. Walked a few doors down and we came across Daiwa Sushi, which is also relatively famous in Tsukiji. The line is significantly shorter when we went and I felt like we... More

After the tuna auction we headed for a sushi breakfast. The queues at this restaurant weren't as long as sushi dai so we chose this one. Had the set meal and the fatty tuna was delicious - I didn't know tuna could taste like that. The tuna we get in the UK is definitely the wrong end of the fatty... More

This place was really disappointing. We waited about a hour, which we expected, but the place so so packed they definitely tried to sell you the prix fix menu and get you out the door. The sushi quality was good for sea urchin and salmon roe, but poor for fatty tuna and egg. the toro it was very sinew-y. there... More
