Sushi Dai/Daiwa Sushi open?

thehyperion Dec 28, 2009 12:48 AM


I've heard from someone that a lot of sushi restaurants close this week b/c of lack of ingredients. Would anyone happen to know if either Sushi Dai or Daiwa Sushi close this week?

Thank you.

    Most likely, probably starting tomorrow or Wednesday. I could even bet money on it. The market is closed also, hence no fish to sell.

      So apparently both are open today and tomorrow, but at least for tomorrow, they will be closing early, around 9:30 am or so because of the lack of fish.

        Just back from Tsukiji, more people than `the` intersection at Shibuya, true crush. l will be going tomorrow and will find out when they are closed.

        Hi All,

        On a related note, does anyone know what time Sushi Dai opens?

          Guidebooks say their business hours are 5 am to 2 pm.

            es 5, but open before metro, always a line even 30 minutes before opening, a true pain.

              Is there any time when it doesn't have a line, or when it has a shorter line? Are weekdays any better than weekends?

                In my experience weekdays are much better than weekends. For some reason I've had great luck on Tuesday morning's before 9am. Never waited longer than 45 mins at most but that could just be dumb luck.

                  45 minutes!?!!? That's still really long! Of course, no longer than I waited for Echire croissants!

                  Maybe I'll try going for sushi when I arrive Friday morning, rather than croissant. I can always head back to Echire later for the other stuff I want to try, since the croissants aren't a priority for me.

                    I was there this past week day around 9:00am and notice the wait is not long, maybe only 10 people waiting to get in to Sushi Dai, so probably one round will do. However I ate at Daiwa this time because there was no wait at all.

                      Yeah, for some reason when I go that's always the case. Maybe ten people in line at Dai and Nobody in line or even eating at Daiwa with maybe a very small line like 5 people at Sushi Bun.
