6 amazing sushi specials in Cape Town right now

From discount platters to all-you-can-eat buffets, it’s time to put on your game face (and your best pair of elasticated pants).

Cape Town Fish Market (National)

It’s CTFM’s 20th birthday party, and everyone’s invited. Until 19 November 2017, you can get 30% off all the sushi on their menu, from salmon roses and shrimp rolls to tuna makimono. No doggy bags, no takeaways and no groups of 10 or more without prior arrangement.

Active Sushi (De Waterkant)

There are so many specials here, it might be difficult to keep them all straight.
The big one is the eat-as-much-as-you-can special for R199 (all day on Mondays and Saturdays, and on Tuesdays to Fridays from 5.30pm to 10pm). You’ll be charged R8 for every piece not eaten, which is a challenge that should be accepted. The lunch specials run Mondays to Saturdays between 11.30am and 3.30pm. Go for the Active 0 (10 pieces for R70); Active 1 (16 pieces for R80); Active 2 (18 pieces for R90); or Active 3 (20 pieces for R100).

Live Bait (Muizenberg and Kalk Bay)

Whether you’re swinging single or a serial dater, coming here for sushi between Mondays and Thursdays pays off. The Sushi Special for One includes 2 salmon roses, 4 California rolls and 4 rainbow rolls, plus a glass of house wine for R105. The Sushi Platter for Two gets you 4 salmon roses each, California rolls, rainbow rolls and fashion sandwiches, plus 2 glasses of house wine, all for R140.

Catch 22 Beachside Grille and Bar (Table View)

Two-for-one sushi Thursdays remain a big draw-card at this oceanfront eatery. Between 5pm and 10pm you can double up on maki, California rolls, fashion sandwiches, nigiri, sashimi and salmon roses. The special is valid for sit-down only, as long as you order a drink and don’t take a doggy bag. It’s best to book a space, as the place fills up fast.

Salushi (Claremont)

All day from Sunday to Tuesday (from 12pm to 5pm for the rest of the week), customers can order off the Value Menu, which includes standard a la carte options like California rolls (between R22 and R34 for 4 pieces) and fashion sandwiches (between R46 and R62 for 9 pieces). You’ll also find their signature sushi, like rainbow rolls (R62 for 8 pieces); veg crunch rolls (R26 for 4); and prawn-tempura California rolls (R40 for 4 pieces).

Beluga (Green Point)

The sushi, dim sum and cocktail half-price special at this Cape Town stalwart is an institution, not to mention a comforting constant in the city’s constantly changing food landscape. From Mondays to Saturdays, 12pm to 7pm, you pay half price for crowd-pleasers like California rolls, fashion sandwiches, nigiri, maki and hand rolls, as well as the establishment’s own signatures like Philadelphia rolls (with cream cheese) and seared tuna sandwiches. On Sundays the sushi special runs all day.
