I love sushi. But I readily admit I am no connoisseur. So I dare not pretend to be an expert judge in matters of such art and delicacy. I can merely convey my own personal experience. And Daiwa Sushi was just that - an experience. Simply presented, each piece of the "omakase" just melts in your mouth. The Uni (Sea... More

I'm a Japanese girl, who lives in Europe. I was there with my Europian Partner. I don't look a tipical japanese, and probably the Sushi chef " Taisyo" thought, that i am from somewhere else in Asia, even i spoke with my Tokyo Accent. They do really cheating jobs, unfortunately. The Chef gave me a magro ( cheap part of... More

We waited about an hour in line but it was super worth it. Crowded, authentic sushi made live at the chef's bar. Highlight for me was salmon and medium fatty tuna.

My family and I reached at 10.30am and waited for a good 60minutes (another restaurant advised us the waiting time to enter that place was 3 hours!). Well worth the wait really. The staff guided us to queue diligently in the queue which formed like a snake. Once isnide the friendly Chef advised us to take set meal (presumably offsetting... More

We visited Daiwai sushi after checking out the tuna auction. We arrived there shortly before 7am and lined up for about 30 mins. The wait was well-worth it! The sushi was amazing. The tuna belly melted in our mouths. What an experience!

Queue is not as long as SushiDai next door but quality is not far from it , nothing beats the excitement of not knowing what's on the menu until it is served . Be there as early as you can ,say 7am

Started queuing at about 9.30 am, waited for about 1 hour before being ushered into a tiny shop to sit at a counter where one of 3 chefs serves up super fresh sushi. It was quite an experience: the hugh but disciplined crowd, the excellent food & the whole atmosphere. Didn't understand Japanese, so we just nodded at whatever the... More

Get there early and channel your inner stick figure to keep the line from overflowing into the business next door. Stand at the counter inside to have seafood fresh from the market. The omakase comes with miso soup and if you must have more, order individual pieces.

This is a hardcore Japanese place. The wait is not that bad (got here in the rain at 745 and was in at 8). The bad part was the sushi. Sea urchin, raw shrimp, cuttlefish and other grossness. If you end up here don't get the set menu if you like western sushi. Really didn't like the selection, much preferred... 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.
