We originally planned to go to Sushi Dai and bear the long queues. We arrived at 8:10am. I lined up for sushi dai and my friend lined up for sushi daiwai. After 40mins, my queue only moved a metre. My friend was almost at the...More

It has become almost a Tokyo ritual for us - waking up early and braving the queues to get to Sushi Daiwa. It helped that the Fish Market is (was?) in the midst of relocating and the crowds had thinned out. Order the seasonal specials,...More

The course menu is pretty standard (7pcs and half roll). Quality wise is standard, lacking the super fresh taste it used to have. Do not order anything outside the course menu. You will be disappointed. I ended up leaving the uni sashimi behind because it...More

There is a orderly queue outside the little restaurant. We waited about 30 minutes before our turn to eat inside. The sushi is amazing! Loved the otoro (tuna belly)... TRULY AMAZING!!!

Located at the Tsukiji Market, this place has a long line in front of it – but don’t be alarmed there are two small restaurants so the line goes by quickly. The menu consists of a set menu with various sushi and costs about 3500...More

Sushi Dai, unless you go at 2am 3am, the wait can be LONG. Come here, less waiting, as good Sushi, with much much less waiting

We went yesterday in the rainy morning and waited for about 30 minutes. Once we got in we ordered the omakase which was just amazing. The sushi was sauced, and used real wasabi with the chef doing his best to explain and make the experience...More

This is honestly the most divine sushi I've ever tasted in my life. Nothing can compare to this sushi experience. Daiwa has set THE bar for me in terms of sushi excellence and perfection. Just try it, you'll understand. It's worth the wait and the...More

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

Are babies allowed? I have a 9 month old. My other idea would be to have one of us eat while the other waits outside with the baby, then switch. How long is a typical meal? Thanks!

From my experience, there isn't any space for a baby. The space is very cramped, you sit elbow-to-elbow at the sushi counter, and the space behind your back is about two feet wide and necessarily occupied by servers... More

Planning on rocking up with family of 5 at 7am Friday 18th December. Any idea how long it would take on average to get served at this restaurant at that time of day? We will have an hour maximum as we have a train to catch, so if theres quite a line up at this restaurant, any idea how long the line up would be for other nearby sushi restaurants?
