Introduced by friend to the place. The queue time was a bit long, about an hour. But the sushi quality was very good, fresh and the portion was just right. However the price is slightly on the high side though.

Eating at Daiwa Sushi is an experience. The sushi is one of the freshest you can get, made by sushi chefs who spend much of their lives studying this into an art, and I would think most people lining up to get in line up...More

Amazing sushi, worth an hour wait but if you had to wait more go somewhere else. They are really efficient with the line. Got there at 6:50am and got in by 7:10am.

The food is OK, the seat is too small. Cash only. The menu is limited. I came here in the early morning and waiting for 15 minutes. The chief was not pleasant. He keeps serving food and ignore me when I try to talk with...More

We were too late for Sushi Dai next door but could squeeze in to the line here. Expect at least an hour plus wait. We were a family of four and had to be split to get seated. Sushi is quite good as we expected...More

Had best sushi of my life (and I eat a lot of sushi) as first seating of Daiwa Sushi in February 2017. But did learn a hard-ish lesson on 16 May 2018. Set that alarm and headed out at 4:45 with mouth watering only to...More

We had heard so much about the legendary Daiwa sushi. We decided we had to go. We waited for about an hour. The restaurant is the most unassuming place I have ever eaten in. It’s all about the quality... & that’s what you get. There’s...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

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
