Best Sushi - ever.

Next to the "wait three hours in line" Sushi Dai, Daiwa Sushi in my opinion is just as good quality and such a cool and authentic sushi experience. We got there around 9 or 10am and only waited about 15 mins. Once we were done though there seemed to be a bit of a line. Still nothing compared to... read more

We've been to both sushi Dai und daiwa sushi so I am able to compare both sushi locations. We waited a little less to get inside daiwa sushi than sushi Dai. But still we had to wait. Our expectations were quite high as we have heard that it is almost as good as sushi Dai and we were completely satisfied... More

This joint deserves the 5 star rating. It's supposedly run by the son of Sushi Dai and has a shorter queue. I came at about 6am after the tuna auction. Most unbelievable sushi ever. Nothing else taste quite as good anymore. Haven't tried Sushi Dai though, so I'm not in a position to compare.

We reached the place slightly after 9am and there was already a queue on place (still decent compared to Dai Sushi's ridiculous queue). We got in within an hour and ordered the chef omakase's set each. The sushi was fresh and the tuna and sea urchin were incredible! Definitely worth a visit!!!

The sushi were very fresh and the taste is different when compared to normal sushi restaurant. The secret is probably the sushi were made on the spot and the correct amount of wasabi and soy sauce were added by sushi chef. This way you can ensure that the correct amount of wasabi and soy sauce were used. I noticed that... More

Without a doubt this is really good sushi (the fish is so much better in Japan compared to my home country), but i'm pretty sure you can find just as good sushi elsewhere in Tokyo, let alone the dozen other sushi restaurants in and around Tsukiji. But I loved the event of it. The hustle and bustle of Tsukiji, showing... More

Daiwa Sushi is an excellent choice when visiting Tsukiji Fish Market and here is why: 1. Restaurant has 2 shops with enough seats for 24 people 2. Larger capacity means shorter wait in line compared to other places 3. Restaurant serves the set meal all at once, therefore the average time per customer is shorter 4. Quality is amazing, especially... More

This place is located in the Tsukiji Fish Market. It's hard to find unless you can read kanji. The lines are long but so worth the wait. The sushi here is amazing. We got the chef's special. Everything from the yellowtail, tuna, shrimp, eel and squid was soooooo good. I didn't care much for the sea urchin but that's just... 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.
