We had experienced an incredible early morning tour of the Fish Markets and were sent here at 9.30 for sushi. Sat at the small bar and were served a multitude of beautiful dishes by the friendly chef (who clearly loved our enthusiasm and passion for...the excellent food he was serving us). Cannot recommend highly enough. What a fantastic experience and fresh incredible sushi...More

Right in the market. Long lines but this place is one of the reasons why sushi in America is always lack luster.

They discriminate against foreigners. I regret not going through the 1 star reviews under the old tsukiji listing earlier. Seafood on the sushi was fresh, which shd be a given. I assume all other restaurants located in the market should be about the same on...this. The sushi rice did not taste like sushi rice. It was hard and there was no hint of vinegar at all. The topping and rice did not go well together. I was served by an older chef, a middle aged man, who was cheerful and smiley. The positive experience ended there. The chef asked me if I would like to have wasabi on my sushi, I said no (and even signalled an 'x' with my fingers to make sure the msg got across). 2/3 of my meal came with wasabi. It was obvious the chef's heart was not on his work. Or maybe he is new. The nori on my sushi came unwound on a few occasions, and some of the sushi he served would not stand upright. The sushi rice fell apart and the topping fell off in the serving dish before I touched them. My sushi was served in pairs. He would put down 2 sushis in one grip. Other chefs who were serving japanese customers (ordering the same set) served their sushis individually, and made sure each sushi was well moulded before letting it on the serving plate. I think that is why the locals love them. 3 others seated beside me were foreigners and they were served in the same way as I did. I read of other 1 star reviews that also spoke of similar experiences. Maybe they felt foreigners did not know better? Not knowing the culture does not mean we should be treated sloppily. They should still serve us what we paid for. This is basic business ethics. Or maybe they feel foreigners are easy money. It is obvious that smiles does not equate to respect or welcome in this place. From my observation, it seems they do not like to serve foreigners. If they had any integrity, they should have said no to non-japanese speaking customers, like some established Japanese restaurants. But here, they take you in, smile at you and deliberately serve you food of subpar quality. It is deplorable. I am glad I went at a time when i did not have to wake up early or wait long. And I sincerely hope no others have to go through what I went through. I do not recommend patronizing this shop. Looking at past reviews, I have a feeling they have been doing this for quite a while and as they have continued to enjoy rave reviews from visitors, they now feel it is fine to practice this discrimination. Such unethical practices should not be encouraged. They give a bad name to the reknown Japanese standards of hospitality.More

I’ve eaten the best sushi of my life... of course I’m italian.. but it’s very impressing the difference bitween a very good and expensive sushi in Italy and that I’ve had. Great taste and perfect balance. 10 unforgetteble pieces for 40€ but very high quality....I recomend to visit fish market before!!More

I waited for about 15-20 minutes on a Saturday for a seat. Once in, I sat and sushi started immediately hitting my plate. Tuna to die for! All the chefs are working nonstop with a smile on their faces, very high quality seafood. Had around...8-10 pieces of sushi and one roll, that set me back close to $50 with a beer. Cash only!More

Post move from Tsukiji to Toyosu - it has lost some of its feel. Located on the ground floor of the Fruit & Vegetable Wholesale Market. It has lost a lot of its special appeal it used to have. As for the sushi, considering price...point and what you actually get, it is above average mid grade sushi restaurant. No where near a top end 5 star sushi restaurant but it isn't a cheap conveyor sushi restaurant by any means. The hype has everything to do with location - you just saw the tuna auction and then you can eat tuna at 6 am. This is something that few restaurants can do. Daiwa feeds this setting very well. As for the tuna. I had a sampler of two pieces of tuna of each grade plus a tuna/negi roll. The tuna was pretty good. Price was 5,500 yen. Pricey for the meal if you do not consider the fact that it is 6 am and it is one of the few options available at that time of morning. It is part of the experience of the Tuna Action. If I were to do the tuna action again, I probably will end up here again.More

If you love sushi, this place is a must in Japan. I think about this place very often and wanted to eat here twice on my trip, but only got a chance one time. It's amazing and you will thank me later! It took me...a long time to figured out how to find this place, the guards and the fish market people couldn't help me. So I attached the photo, when you see that sign, it's downstairs from it. It's a CASH only, set menu around $40 US per person, probably the best sushi I ever ate.More

If you only just like sushi - Daiwa Sushi (and Sushi Dai) are just fine and okay - but nothing remarkable by Japan standards. If however you really LOVE and appreciate good sushi there are much better places to eat in Toyosu. Daiwa Sushi is...certainly not worth a ridiculous long queue of almost entirely foreign tourists blinded by the hysterical and foolish hype of Daiwa Sushi (and Sushi Dai) created online, in guidebooks or in the foreign media.More
