The wall of mirrors makes this shoebox-sized Richmond spot appear much larger than it is—and that’s where any illusion stops. Daigo’s nigiri is very real, and always melts in your mouth. We like to stick to the specials of the day, and keep them coming alongside filet mignon and green onion tempura rolls, miso soup, and salmon skin salad. The large sake selection also means there’s a high probability you’ll close down the place. And like any great neighborhood sushi spot, we turn to Daigo for everything from quick dinners and small group hangs to nights when we just feel like a saucy baked salmon roll for takeout at 8pm. 

Food Rundown

Tokyo Cowboy Roll

If you have a reliance on dragon and 49er rolls, it’s time to mix it up. Like, say, with this delicious shitake and tempura green onion roll. Filet mignon strips that are blowtorched and draped over the rolls keep things interesting. Dip into the tataki sauce and you’re all set.

Nigiri Dinner

The specialty nigiri is the star of Daigo’s sushi show, but if we want to think less and eat more, go for the $40 nigiri dinner. You get seven pieces of nigiri, plus tomago and a bowl of seaweed-heavy miso soup.
