Sushi Sei - 寿司清本店

Sushi Sei (寿司清 本店) is located in the middle of Tsukiji Market in a highly competitive sushi district which is right next to the Tsukiji Fish Market. People come here to eat the freshest sushi early in the morning to get the best of the best.

We randomly walked by this restaurant after checking out Tsukiji Fish Market and got very lucky that we were able to sit down at the counter without making reservations. Apparently Sushi Sei has a 2nd floor with table seating only, and a new location somewhere nearby –  but this original location has the highest rating and they certainly had fresh fish.

We happend to pick a good time to go since they had a special New Years 11-piece sushi set menu for 2000 yen (the average price for a similar lunch set in this area is 3000~4000 yen). We ended up ordering a couple extra pieces aside from the special because we wanted even more of the yummyness. I’m sure all the sushi around this area is good but if you happen to walk by Sushi Sei, I recommend it (but make sure you sit at the counter!).

  2. Have you been to Sushidai or Daiwazushi? I’m going to be visiting the market in about two weeks and wanted to know your thoughts on these two very popular sushi places! Thanks!

    • I haven’t been to either of them but I heard great things about Sushidai. The only thing is you have to wake up quite early and stand in a long line. I’ve also heard stories where people woke up early to eat there but couldn’t figure out which shop was Sushidai since there are so many sushi places in the fish market so if you go, make sure you know which one it is!

  4. Sushidai is OK. But not worth the wait. You can check out the link to see what waiting in line to eat at “Sushi Die” (as I call it now) is like. The catch phrase is “eat like the fish mongers do before sunrise” but honestly you won’t see any fish mongers waiting in line to eat there….they have way more important things to do…like work!

    • Yikes! Sounds like you had a bad experience at Sushidai. This is good to know since waiting over 2hrs to get sushi at 5am is not my thing…
