After trying a new sushi place for our first breakfast that day [completely forgot to record the name of the restaurant :( ], DH wanted to have sushi back at the place where we had our lunch a few months ago. There are several Sushizanmei restaurants in Tsukiji area, but this was the one that we went to last time and we had a nice experience there and enjoyed the food too. We got counter seats and were happy to be able to see the chef preparing the sushi. They were also very responsive to us. Great food and nice service.
We were aware of the fact that Daiwa Sushi and Sushi Dai are the two well known sushi places in Tsukiji. The long lines formed outside the two restaurants were translated into 2-3 hour wait and we did not want to wait that long.
