When visiting Tsukiji it's remarkable to see so many empty or half empty restaurants, and yet a long queue forming outside just 3 places, one of which was Daiwa. We were rather too close to lunchtime last orders, so we chose Daiwa as it's queue was shorter than Dai's. Compared with other reviewers we were lucky to wait just 20... More

We werent that early as we had some miscommunications on the opening and closing of markets on the various days.. Once we queued (about 2 hours) we got in and ordered the chef's special. Their sushi is sooooo fresh and so gooood. You dont need to dip it into any soya sauce as it has already been well marinated. We... More

We got to Tsukiji around 5:15 (having taken a cab there since the subway doesn't open early enough). We were waiting in the Sushi Dai line but decided to switch over to Daiwa after reading comparisons online (Japanese SIM cards for the win). We were able to get into the first seating. The sushi was incredible. I loved every piece... More

Worth it! Felt pretty rushed to finish the meal especially with such a long line outside (we waited 1 hour 20 minutes)!

We are Sushi lover and we call Daiwa the best sushi restaurant we have ever had so far. Easy to find next to Sushi Dai but with much shorter line. Had no problem with the "rude man" regulating the line. Got there at 6am on a Monday and didnt have to wait long at all. Had chefs recommendation. It was... More

Read the reviews on sushi in the area. Decided that the market would be the best place to get sushi for not a million dollars. Got there around 6am and the line for Sushi Dai was around the corner. Opted for Daiwa due to reviews on here. Waited about 30 minutes, and didn't have any problems with the guy monitoring... More

My friends and I were looking around for a good sushi restaurant in the area. This had been one of the restaurants in the area that was highly recommended. We decided to give it a try even though there was a one hour wait to be seated. This was 10 am on a Friday! Once we got in, the sushi... More

It is a great experience of how it is made and the quality of the cut. It should have been the best sushi of my life for fame, but was not. Observation: The civil servant who organizes the queue is a difficult guy to deal with.

My experience at Daiwa Sushi was marred by the man that was regulating the line outside the door. He was telling us to stand within the rope, and we were, but my husband was in the midst of walking away from the line to see what was around the area when he grabbed my husband's arm to push him back...
