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...

We lined up for about 30 minutes on a Monday morning in a very tight zig zag line. It seemed crazy, but it was actually very orderly. Once you make it inside there are about 10 seats facing the sushi bar (that's it!), so you can definitely interact with your chef. You must try the omakase, which is 3500 yen... More

Hubby and I followed the Lonely Planet recommendations and ended up at Tsukiji market at 5am for a sushi breakfast. It was a bit confusing to locate Daiwa as it doesn't have an English sign. However, note that it will be one of the two restaurants on that block with big crowds outside. My experience at Daiwa was a bit... More

Queued up for an hour and half and was worth the wait. The shop was very packed, much smaller than imagined, but had the authentic feel. Hearty breakfast with fresh sushi from the famous Tsukiji fish market, with varieties not found in hometown. The meal is pretty costly but definitely worth the price and wait.
