Sushi Dai will likely serve you the freshest sushi you’ll have in your life. While critics call this Tsukiji Fish Market staple overrated due to its multi-hour waits, every bite is better than the next during their Omakase tasting menu.
Sushi Dai was named the third best restaurant in all of Japan in 2014, and the best sushi restaurant. Each piece of sushi is fine-tuned to perfection, with the rice still warm and the seaweed crisp. The fish is incredibly fresh and full of taste.
The restaurant is also relatively affordable for its quality. Each set costs from ¥2000- ¥4000, which is about $20 – $40 USD.
