Sushi TorontoThe best cheap sushi in Toronto is proof that budget sushi dining does not have to be synonymous with AYCE. These restaurants serve up fresh and delicious cuts of sashimi, along with an assortment of fantastic rolls, for prices that won't make your wallet cry.

Here is the best cheap sushi in Toronto.

Sushi on Bloor

Sushi on Bloor

This Annex restaurant is a crowd favourite with its insanely cheap lunch specials that go all the way to 5 p.m. That means you can get an early dinner for $6.99, which consists of up to 14 pieces of assorted sushi rolls, along with soup and salad. Now, that's a sweet deal. More »

To-Ne Sushi

To-Ne Sushi

This Queen West restaurant is constantly busy, which is easy to understand when you consider the value for money that you get here. The excellent salmon sushi lunch on offer here (sashimi, sushi, and roll) is priced at just over $13, which is a steal considering the quality. More »

Sushi Inn

This Yorkville mainstay has surprisingly inexpensive sushi options. You can get bento boxes starting from around $10, while the tuna and salmon sashimi lunch special is also similarly priced. Bonus points for the fact that you can generally get a seat during lunch time. More »

Kibo Sushi

Kibo Sushi

With a number of locations in the city including this one in Summerhill, this charming sushi place is surprisingly spacious and quiet for such a popular restaurant. Kibo serves up lunch specials hovering at the $5-6 mark, which is insanely good value considering the food quality. Make sure to try the spicy salmon rolls. More »

Sushi Bong

This tiny joint near Yonge and Sheppard is well-known for its ridiculously cheap Dynamite Roll, which comes in around $6. With a generous crusting of tempura flakes on top of the massive fried shrimp roll, this one is perfect for quick takeout. More »

Big Sushi

Big Sushi serves up large-sized sushi for low prices. This Annex restaurant is well-known for its signature Caterpillar and Volcano Rolls. The interior is a bit dated, but with tons of (large-sized) lunch combos starting at around $6.99, who cares? More »

Mazz Sushi

Mazz Sushi

Mazz Sushi has been a mainstay in the Dovercourt and Bloor area for ages. The deceptively simple Crab Salad Roll here is one of my favourites, and the fact that you can get a tempura and California roll combo for $9.50 at lunch means that you can get full on the cheap. They also have surprisingly good BBQ kalbi here. More »

Sushi Delight

Sushi Delight

Steps from Chester subway station, this restaurant specializes in good Japanese food at low prices, as evidenced by their impressive takeout specials. A 13-piece sushi combo for dinner under $9? Or a 2-person dinner combo with California rolls, teriyaki chicken, and gyoza for $15? Sign me up. More »

This Scarborough shrine to fresh sushi is a favourite among locals, who flock to feast on a dozen California rolls for only $7.95. Alternatively, you can also go for a dozen fresh sashimi cuts for $12.95 here. Put them together and you have yourself a decent meal for two. More »

Pearl Sushi

A great option if you're ever in the mood for sushi in Mimico, Pearl Sushi is indeed a hidden gem. There's a wide variety of sushi, tempura, and donburi options available, including Korean dishes like bulgogi and kalbi ribs. My recommendation is the everyday special of California, Dynamite, and Spicy Salmon rolls (20 pieces!) for $14. More »
