Ryu Sushi 龍寿司
Ryu Sushi doesn't have the ridiculous line ups, but it's ranked 3rd best sushi restaurant within Tsukiji. (Sushi Dai is ranked 2nd) I arrived at 7:15am on Saturday morning and I got a seat right away. There wasn't a single foreigner (except me) and it was all locals that dine here; it's a local hidden gem.
Ryu Sushi has a few omakase, sashimi and chirashi set options for either ¥2,500, ¥3,500 and ¥4,300; more options depending on your budget. I ordered the omakase set, but they don't serve it piece by piece. Although yes, Sushi Dai does taste better, but I personally wouldn't want to line up at 3am again for 2 to 3 hours. This would be a great option if you're traveling with friends on different budgets and don't want to spend hours lining up. You can go in for a quick breakfast or lunch and continue your tour around Tsukiji Market. Ryu Sushi's local, authentic and reasonably priced!
