We started queuing at 4.30am after our intended tour of the Tsukiji fish auction did not materialise. There was already a long queue at that hour! It was dark getting there and the GPS was not directing us to the shop properly, so we actually followed the crowd to the row of sushi restaurants. The shop opened on time at... More

2nd time visiting Sushi Daiwa and feel disappointment for this trip. Sushi is still fresh but doesn't taste as awesome as my 1st experience. The chef who served us seem to be rushing us and was sort of arrogant, not the humble kind of chef that took pride in his masterpieces that I had for my first experience. Don't think... More

We visited at around lunch time, originally came to visit it's neighbour Sushi Dai but they were no longer accepting guests. So we came to the next longest line which was Daiwa. Queued for around 45 mins, they have 2 rooms so the queue moves faster than Dai's. My French room mate was saying something like in France, no one... More

If you haven't been to Daiwa Sushi and you're in Tokyo you so need to go Dudes! I went yesterday for lunch. I arrived at about 12.30pm and ended up being the last sitting. I queued for about half an hour, squeezed into the shoebox that is Daiwa and feasted on the greatest sushi I have ever eaten in my... More

If you're wondering whether it's worth getting up at 4am and queueing for sushi in a fish market, the answer is yes! The most amazing, fresh sushi handmade right in front of you. Fantastic meal and something we will be talking about for years to come.

Waited around 45 minutes to be seated which was not so bad. As usual, we went for omakase (chef's recommendation) and ordered extra on top of that. I used to live in Tokyo for a few years . Coming back here, I was excited to get authentic sushi again. My boyfriend and I ordered a lot. My favorites are Otoro,... More

There are some places that you go to that are overhyped and underwhelming that you may have had to line up for. Daiwa Sushi is not one of those places. The wait is definitely worth it. The fish is the freshest fish ever (being that the restaurant gets the seafood direct from the port 50 meters down, the staff are... More

Be ready to stand in line for a while. When you get to the table, just sit down and the chef will start serving a menu. After the Manu you can order more if you want.

We set to queue for Dai Sushi which located just right next Daiwa but the queue was too long. Saw a couple of locals queuing outside Daiwa and we set to go there. Within less than an hour, we managed to secure our seats and tried the Omakase menu. The sushi and nigiri were great and my personal favourite is... More

Only 2 doors down from sushi dai, we ate here twice during our 8 nights in tsukiji. We arrived at 3am, and there was already a 30 person queue for sushi dai as oppose to the day before when there was only 4 people at 3am, so rather than waiting we went to sushi daiwa. This sushi is very comparable... 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. 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.
