My wife and I intended to go to Sushi Dai however the line was way too long so we opted for the next restaurant that had a long line. Stumbled across Daiwa and assumed that it must be good if there is a long queue. We got in quite quickly, maybe 40 minutes or so of waiting. We had a... More

When we arrived in Tokyo we were completely jetlagged so we took advantage of it and went to the Tsukiji fish market at 4 am. You can not only watch the tuna auction but also get the freshest best sushi of the day at the Daiwa restaurant. We had the daily special and we added some toro to it at... More

We got to Daiwa around 8am and were told we would have to wait for an hour, lucky for us, we only waited for 40 minutes. Daiwa, located in the Tsukiji Fish Market, is the competitor for Sushi Dai next door (wait was 2 hours). When we finally sat down (small counter with 10-15 seats), we received the chef's recommendation... More

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

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.
