Beluga - Cape Town Sushi Specials

Top Sushi Specials

I’m on a sushi mission at the moment. So while I’m testing I thought I’d help you guys out and compile a list of my favourite sushi specials. I’m not a huge fan of all you can eat sushi, mostly because I lack self control and don’t need an excuse to over eat but also because all you can eat usually means no sashimi and that’s the main reason for eating sushi in the first place. I’ve included my three top sushi specials based on what I think is the best quality for the price. There are a couple that are cheaper or more authentic but I keep going back to Salushi, Beluga and Fugu.


Salushi - Cape Town Sushi SpecialsIt’s in the Southern Suburbs, Every day 12-5pm (Monday – Sunday) 50% off selected sushi. They also offer a Value Menu all Sunday as well as Monday and Tuesday nights. The sushi is really affordable, good quality and they have some interesting options including Bon Bon Gifts and Prawn Passions. But in terms of value for money their prawn fashion sandwiches (9 for under R30 on special) is probably your best bet.


Beluga - Cape Town Sushi SpecialsBeluga in Green Point is perennially popular and a lot of their popularity is due to their good value sushi offering. Between 12pm and 7pm Beluga offers half-price sushi, cocktails and dim sum. On Sunday the special runs all day.

I usually go for one of their 3 platter specials: BLACK PLATE at R109 {Salmon roses (4), prawn, tempura rolls (8),samurai rolls (8), prawn nigiri (4)}, RED PLATE at R119 {Salmon roses (4), seared tuna, salmon and tuna sashimi (6), rainbow rolls (6), California rolls (4)} or WHITE PLATE at R139 {Salmon roses (4), seared tuna, tuna and salmon sashimi (6), rainbow rolls (6) california rolls (4), tuna and salmon nigiri (6)}.

Beluga’s sister restaurant in the V & A Waterfront has a similar offering where you can enjoy half-price sushi, dim sum and cocktails, Monday to Saturday between 12pm and 6pm.


Fugu - Cape Town Sushi SpecialsSituated in Wembley Square, Fugu offers good value sushi in a relaxed setting. Their sushi specials are subject to change, but at the moment they are offering 3 different platters for under R50 (for around 12 – 15 pieces of sushi). The other thing about Fugu that makes them a great spot for an affordable night out is that they charge no corkage and are happy for you to bring your own wine.
