I lined for five hours in the freezing cold (below 10 degree Celsius weather) for this. The whole time I was asking myself why do I hate myself so much that I had to subject myself to this. Then after 5 hours, we were given a seat. The first thing they served was fatty tuna sushi. I cried inside. It... More

Completely worth the wait! We got in line at 3am and were lucky to be part of the second group to get in. We entered around 5:45am and the experience was about 45 minutes long. Very delicious, friendly chefs, and fresh!

My first visit to sushi dai in 2013 I was blown away and would give that visit a 5/5 review. It was a 3 hour wait then with a 6:15am queuing time. Previously you received more pieces of sushi and after your set was done and you picked your extra piece you could then order more on top with an... More

It's true. I did wait five hours in line for this meal. I didn’t expect there to be anyone waiting though when I arrived at 130am but there they were, seven diehards. By the time 4:30am rolled around, this had turned into 70 people… It’s fair to say that Sushi Dai is popular. Extremely so. But this is no pop... More

The worst part is obviously the line. But for the price, you are definitely getting your money's worth.

First of all, thanks to everyone for commenting time they got there and time they got in. That was really helpful to plan for what time to get there. We decided to aim to get in for the first sitting so we would have to wait as little as possible. We got there at 2:50am and were 8/9th in line.... More

No sushi lover's life can be complete without a visit to Sushidai. It is a spiritual experience within itself. I waited for 4 hours in line, but it was absolutely worth it. When you finally get seated there is so much anticipation, and the chefs do not disappoint. It's one drop of heaven and then the next. You will never... More

First and foremost this is a restaurant that I will travel back to Japan just to eat. Now if you are foodie then this will be worth the wait, if not then this may not be for you. We got to Sushidai around 6 am and we were lucky to make the cut, However we did not eat until 11:30... More

Despite the wait, it was worth it - the sushi is so fresh, it's spoilt my taste buds! Having my sushi elsewhere is just not the same - the chef with his easy going, cheerful banter really makes the whole experience even more enjoyable. The counter only seats about 12 people, however he is efficient and is able to turn... 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.
