The place was super tiny...only has 13-15 seats...therefore, prepared to wait in line...we waited for 2 hours since we got there kind of late (8am). There were only 2 sushi places in the fish market that had waiting cues...this was one of them. the other one was sushi bowl...so it was a different style. anyway, words can't fully describe this...

Having visited Tsukiji over the past 4 years, I had never seen the lineup at Sushi Dai so short (but it still turned out to be 2.5 hours). The saving grace were the nice friends from Chicago via Houston and Amsterdam and Basque via Australia. That helped to make the wait less excruciating...Speaking of queue you lineup in the main...

Apparently THE place to eat nigiri of the plump, delicious, melt-in-your-mouth variety. The pieces are perfection, but I should have ordered two set menus instead of one. (We had to order while standing in line.) After queuing for three hours, eleven nigiri plus four bites of maki was simply too little for me. Standing in line was fine, though, because... More

Waited for nearly 4 hours and was sorely disappointed. Sushi was just all right, nothing exceptional (besides the eel) and didn't justify the long, cold wait or expensive prices.

Got here at 2:30am and was the 6th in line. The wait was worth it. The approx $40usd omakase was such an amazing deal. The toro and uni was amazing. I can see why it's such a big deal!

It was 3:45 AM and my father and I got in an uber from the Park Hotel to the Tsukiji Fish Market Area. In hindsight, I would have left at 3:00 AM (not kidding). Like the original navigators of the sea, we also took 25 minutes to FIND the place (after asking around for a map of the market). Note... More

Yes, the queue is long, the crowd is large and the waiting time is forever. BUT! This is a must go restaurant! Came the last time, but chose another place coz we were short on time. This time round, we went for it, and ended up waiting for nearly 2 hours! When we managed to get a place, the atmosphere... More

1) First of all, the sushi was great. The staff were all friendly and nice. Everything was explained and we were given the best hospitality. No doubts about it. Its better than any sushi i have had in my country or the US. In japan, it has more they put thought into the sushi than conventional sushi restaurants. However, as... More

So as everyone before me has already said, the wait is LOOOOONG but I personally think it's worth it, if you are on a budget. I'm sure if you went to the high-end sushi bars in Tokyo with meals at >$300/person it's either the same quality or possibly better but for normal people who can't afford or don't want to... More

Visited the place at the recommendation of my colleague. Was told it is a die die must go place in your bucket list before the market is moved out. Friends started queuing from 3 am and we managed to get 4 seats around 6.30am. Need a lot of determination and true blue sushi fan to do this. The wait is... More
