ONE OF THE BEST SUSHI!!!

I initially wanted to eat at Sushi-Dai, but when I got there the line has overflowed to the next alley, so I decided to line up at Daiwa Sushi which had a relatively shorter queue. I got there around 9am and there were about 15-20 individuals ahead of me. Since I was by myself, I got seated in 10... read more

Excellent sushi, well worth the wait! Went with the set menu. The place is very small and you eat quickly, but nevertheless would return if given the opportunity.

Despite the hour wait, we just went for the sushi set at 3500 yen. They were quick probably why the wait was less than Sushi Dai. It is definitely a must if you are visiting Tokyo to have sushi amongst the bustling action at the source.

Sushi at its best. Tsukiji Market. One of Japan's most famous at Tsukiji Market. Despite the 2 hour wait, it was seriously the best sushi I have had in Japan for its price level. The ingredients are fresh, sushi is prepared best way possible. With the affordable price offered the Sushi taste like $200-$300, or 20,000-30,000 JPY sushi in Tokyo.... More

I went here the 22 of August morning, my last day in Japan after a 20 days trip. We stayed in line for 60 minutes but we were happy because we knew we were going to eat one of the most famous sushi in Tokyo. When we entered and seated one of the chefs instantly said to us: "set Menu... More

If you go to Tokyo you have to go the tuna auction. If you go to the tuna auction you absolutely have to go to Daiwa to have breakfast. There is a 2 hours queue to stand but it's like the way to paradise of sushi lovers.

Waited 45 minutes to be seated on a hot August day. The 3,500 yen sushi set was excellent in quality but nothing special. The miso soup, made with actual fish bones and flesh was very interesting. I ended up asking for an extra Chou toro and was charged additional 700. All in all, very touristy and a must go in... More

The sushi is excellent and the chefs are polite and welcoming! The tuna fish was like melting butter! Absolutely delicious but be prepared to queue for about an hour!

The fish used for the sushi is excellent, no doubt. But i do not recommend this place. Check the other places around, less crowed,same fish and similar prices (even cheaper). Appearing in lonely planet makes it a worse experience. We queded for like an hour,like we expected,but before getting inside, we had to wait extra because they preferred couoles rather... More

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 tourists they have to put up with. And... More
