I am a huge fan of sushi. My close friends don't even bother asking me what food I want for lunch or dinner. But sometimes it can be pricey to eat sushi outside almost everyday. So, this is the TOP 5 "CHEAP" SPOTS in Metro Vancouver. The only thing we want to consider is decent quality sushi at pocket-friendly prices where you can grab a quick lunch by yourself. These places are NOT romantic date night restaurants or worth your travel time more than 20 minutes. Here is a checklist for you to see whether or not you would like one of these spots:
  • I do not care ambience.
  • Service is not my concern as long as they give me what I ordered quickly.
  • I am on a tight budget but my tummy needs sushi.
  • I love big, fatty, thick pieces of sashimi that will satisfy my stomach.
  • I love cheap special combos/bento box/lunch deals
If you answered yes to more than 3 out of 5, go find these places and indulge your craving for sushi as much as you want!

1. Sushi Ville
They have a great selection of special combos that worth your buck which are mostly priced from $10 to $12. For their Special Combo B ($10.95), you get Crunchy Shrimp Roll (5pcs), Tamago Roll (3pcs), Salmon Roll (3pcs) and one of each Salmon, Tuna and Ebi Nigiri Sushi. They have a variety of special rolls that start from $7.
Salmon Sashimi ($8.95 for 7 pieces)
738 Davie Street, Vancouver

2. Sushi & Roll
This place can be a better alternative to Sushi Garden or Sushi California. Amazingly big, thick pieces of sashimi at cheap prices. Their Love Boat ($25.95) comes with 18 pieces of Assorted Sashimi, 8 pieces of Nigiri Sushi, 1 California Roll, 1 Salmon Roll and 2 Miso Soups. One boat is enough for two people or even three people with adding extra dishes.
Love Boat ($25.95)
103-10241 King George Boulevard, Surrey

3. Momo Sushi 
When dining at Momo Sushi treat yourself to Chirashi Don ($10.50) which comes in a big bowl filled with seaweed salad, spicy tuna and chopped scallop in addition to assorted fresh sashimi. They have value-for-money combos and bentos as well.

Tips: You can substitute salmon for tuna if you wish.
375 Water Street, Vancouver

4. Takeya Sushi
My favourite special combo here is the Takeya Nigiri ($11.95) which comes with Tuna Roll (3pcs), Salmon Roll (3pcs) and 5 Nigiri Sushi inclduing Unagi, Amaebi, Aburi Saba, Aburi Salmon, and Aburi Toro. Aburi Sushi tends to be really expensive if you have at fine dining restaurants, but this home-style Japanese restaurant provides the quality sashimi and amazingly tasty Aburi Sushi for affordable prices.
Takeya Nigiri ($11.95)
Takoyaki ($5.45)
Their Takoyaki is also a must as they don't use the frozen Takoyaki but make the fresh ones!
17-8671 No. 1 Road, Richmond (Inside the Seafair Mall)

5. Sushi Garden 
Visiting this place can be somewhat risky as their food tends to be a bit hit-and-miss. I usually come here for take-out as the place gets really, really busy during dinner time. Sometimes it takes more than 30 minutes to get seated. I recommend you avoid the prime lunch/dinner time especially at Sushi Garden. They don't have lunch break time, so it'd be a good idea to visit between 2-5pm so that chefs can take care of your food better. Their Sushi/Sashimi Combos are pretty decent making you really full after eating gigantic pieces of the fish.
Alaska Roll ($3.95) and Toro Nigiri Sushi ($1.30 for each)
Salmon Sashimi ($8.95 for gigantic 9 pieces)
Salmon Sashimi, Toro and Hamachi Nigiri Sushi
4635 Kingsway, Burnaby
