Beluga (De Waterkant)

While it offers many delicious meals, Beluga is most well known for its sushi, thanks largely to its popular specials, which are available from 12pm to 6pm every day, except Sunday when they’re available all day. The specials menu ranges from cucumber maki for R20 to platters for R275.

Best of Asia (Gardens)

Blink and you might miss this hidden gem while walking in Kloof Street, which you wouldn’t want to do as you’d miss out on the sushi buffet for just R149 per person. The buffet is available from Mondays to Sundays, as is the buy-one-get-one-free (of the same colour plate) promotion.

Blowfish (Tableview)

Take in arguably one of the best views of Table Mountain from the West Coast while you tuck into delicious (and discounted) sushi. Every Wednesday and Sunday from 5pm to 8pm, Blowfish serves up its sushi at half the price.

John Dory’s (nationwide)

As their slogan states: “Everyone loves John Dory’s” and that’s especially true for sushi fans after a good deal. Every Wednesday, the outlets around the country offer half-price sushi. Or from 11am to 4pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays you can choose any three green plates off the sushi belt for just R99.

Harbour House (V&A Waterfront)

Live Bait (Muizenberg)

What’s not to love about Live Bait? They have great views, an inviting atmosphere, delicious seafood and a sushi special. That’s right – every Wednesday you can eat half-price sushi and kids under 12 eat free before 7pm. Make sure you book before you go, as it can get busy.
