Great service, great food

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... read more

Didn't find the place easily (but I have a really bad sense of direction), if you are lost, go to the information center at the edge of the market and they will indicate precisely where it is. Arrived arround 11:30 am, so towards the end of the service and didn't wait too long though there were about 25 people in... More

Note that I stated Pretty Good. I did not state that it was exceptionally good. We ended up trying to get into Sushi Dai and it took way too long. Even with 8-9 seats, if you do the math and everybody sits for 30 minutes, they only move 16-18 people/hour. By 6AM, there is a line of 40+, so it'll... More

Expect a line here, but not as long as its competitor 2 doors away. Even then, the sushi (there are 2 sets to choose from) is very good, the serving more than enough, and the price not expensive. The uni is sweet and the toro delicious. Space is cramped so try not to bring too many things with you when... More

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
