Very small place and there will be a line but so wirth it. Go when it opens at 9h00AM (yes sushis breakfast :)! Best calamar & mackerel ever, on top of tuna and other fish & seafood. You will pay $37 per person for the tasting and will be full and very happy after your visit.

Definitely the best tasting sushi for the price. Ever. The place is located near the Fish Market, right next to its sister restaurant Sushi Dai. For some reasons, the queue here is only about an hour and half while Sushi Dai's queue is at least 4 hours long. After eating at Daiwa I really doubt if Dai would possibly be... More

In short, Daiwa is good sushi, but not great sushi. Like many diners, we queued at Daiwa after assessing the line for Sushi Dai. We arrived at Tsukiji just before 5 am and the line at Sushi Dai was already about 50 people deep, easily a two-hour wait. We ended up waiting at Daiwa for about 45 minutes. The seating... More

After the tuna auction at Tsukiji it's the best timeframe to attend to Daiwa. The sushi is great, the fish is fresh direct from the marketplace. Only pint against Daiwa and other restaurants at Tsukiji is that their environment promotes leaving quickly the place after eating.

A few piece of sushi for $30 and an hour (min) of queue? I was skeptical about the craze even while I was queuing. The queue wasn't too pleasant. But am glad I just queued for it anyway. The chutoro and otoro are my favourites. The sea urchin is so fresh and sweet, unlike the ones I tasted in sydnet... More

I arrived at Daiwa at the Tsujiki Market at around 7:30am, where I was told by an employee that the wait was 75 minutes. I actually waited only 45 minutes, and the line seemed to stay at the same length throughout the morning past 9am. Doesn't seem like coming early at 5-6am as others have said to do is necessary,...

I arrived really early in the morning but still had to wait for approximately an hour, however, it was worth waiting! I really enjoy the Omakase menu that the chef offered. The ingredients were very fresh and the chefs were very friendly. The bill was not expensive, especially when comparing with the quality of ingredients.I really recommend this restaurant but...

Every early morning, tourists make a line to enjoy plate of Sushi in this well-known, but small and shabby, restaurant. One morning, my wife and I had also become a part of the line of patience to confirm the reputation of this place. At 6:40 AM, the line was already long enough compelling us to wait 90 mins to be...

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.
