I'm, as all the other writing these reviews a DIE HARD SUCKER FOR GREAT SUSHI. And Sushidai is one more place I can add to my list and brag about haha. In all seriousness, we were the last ones in the line and had to carry that sign with us... for 4 hours. The anticipation was so great that I... More

Even though we woke up early and got to Tsukiji at 430, there was already a line. There are several sushi restaurants on the same street but most were in line were for Sushi Dai. We were finally seated after a 4 HR wait! The chef was friendly and personable. We had the US$40/person omakase (9 sushi +1 roll along... More

We waited 1 hr and it was nothing hearing that other waited 3-4 hrs. We had the honary to have our sushi made by the headchef. We got the omakase like everyone else but added more unagi and the Special of the day. The uni, chu toro and unagi were the best I had anywhere in the world. Loved how... More

Yes, we waited for 3 hours and 20 mins to get in. Got to the restaurant around 5:15am. Obviously it is still too late. The restaurant is super tiny, which can only fit 13 customers at once. It takes about on average 45 mins to finish your sushi. So do the math about the waiting time. That being said, the... More

6 hour wait on a Sat in September!!!! It was worth it though. We had Chef Satoshi and he was the best!! The most interactive chef there which made the experience even more fun and memorable. They have 2 sets of menu $2700 and $4000 Omakase Chef's choice. We chose the latter and it was worth it! Semi fatty tuna,... More

This is very famous and yes indeed. Mathematics: The place only can sit like 10 max out! Average 20~30 min ties per person Normal queue is 100 people This means 3~5 hours wait...!

Another outstanding sushi stand. Call it a stand because it looks like a stand and long lines usually await to be seated on 12 seats. Fast moving turnover of seats. Like a well orchestrated; wait, seat, eat, go. Pieces are rather small bu the best tasting you can find. Been there two years ag.

This was the best sushi we ate during our trip to Tokyo. A comparable meal like this will easily cost double at other fine dining restaurants. So it's up to you; how much is your time worth waiting in line? It is not the best sushi in tokyo but it is the best VALUE. We stayed in tsukiji for 8... More

It's useless to say that hours and hours from 3/4.00am are worthed. The perfect sushi is there, behind a blue "nori" curtain is hidden the heaven of sushi. 12/13 seats by a counter, shoulder to shoulder, an intimate experience that you must share with strangers. The core of life itself... I only spent hours of queues when I was joining... More

If you love sushi, go to Sushi Dai in Tsukiji market. Delicious sushi at an amazing price! We got up a little before 2am to try to get to Sushi Dai by 2;30am. They open at 5am so I thought 2 and 1/2 hours would be good. The restaurant seats 14 total. There were 12 people ahead of us so... More

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.
