10 Cheap Sushi Places In Singapore, From $1.50 Per Plate

Cheap sushi in Singapore

If someone asked me what I love most about sushi, only two things come to my mind: Music For a Sushi Restaurant by Harry Styles, and cheap, quality sushi. Although they say that money can’t make you as hot as Harry Styles, it can still buy you some good sushi—I know that might sound like a long shot, but well, it’s better than nothing.

In Singapore, whether you’re in the mood for creamy mayo-filled warship sushi or fresh sashimi-topped bites, there are plenty of affordable options to choose from. Here are 10 cheap sushi places where you can satisfy your sushi cravings without breaking the bank, with prices starting from $1.50 per plate.

1. Sushi Go

For a unique dining experience, head over to Sushi Go, where your sushi is delivered to you via mini Shinkansen bullet trains. With over 100 items on their menu, including a seasonal selection of specials, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Prices start at an affordable $1.80++ per plate, and we highly recommend trying their Ikura Gunkan ($3.80++)—vinegared sushi rice parcels topped with briny salmon roe.

Address: 1 Jurong West Central 2, #B1-47/48, Joy Dining Hall, Jurong Point, Singapore 648886
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 10pm

2. Genki Sushi

Genki Sushi continues to be a go-to spot for sushi lovers of all ages, thanks to its affordable and delicious sushi offerings. Despite having been around for some time, the novelty of having your sushi delivered straight to your table on a conveyor belt never gets old. You can take your pick from their wide selection of sushi, which includes options such as Unagi Sushi and Smoked Duck Sushi. With each plate priced between $1.80++ and $5.80++, you can indulge in as many plates as you like without worrying about breaking your wallet.

4. Sushiro

Sushiro is Japan’s largest conveyor belt sushi chain, with more than 500 outlets to its name.

Enjoy their premium ingredients which include Grilled Eel, Abalone, and Shrimp with Avocado. Their ingredients are imported directly from Japan, with their prices ranging from $2.20++ to $4.80++!

Itacho Sushi is a Hong Kong brand with more than 40 outlets in Hong Kong, Singapore, and even Japan. The ingredients that they use are specially selected by their dedicated team of procurement staff, and exported to the restaurants directly from Tokyo, Hokkaido, and Kyushu. While not the cheapest per piece as compared to the other sushi chains on this list, prices here are still relatively low. One piece of Salmon or Squid sushi will set you back only $2++, while their popular Roasted Mackerel costs $3.30++

9. Don Don Donki

The Don Don Donki empire is rapidly expanding in Singapore, and it looks like the ‘Don Don Don, Donki’ jingle is going to permanently live in my head. If you haven’t heard yet, their Jurong Point outlet features a made–to–order sushi kiosk called Sen Sen Sushi. Here, they use a wide selection of fresh fish and seafood, including fresh uni. Some of their popular nigiri items include A4 Wagyu Beef Sukiyaki ($6), Fresh Salmon Mentaiko ($2), and O-toro and Uni ($4). All of their sushi is prepared to order, so you can enjoy it at its freshest.

Address: 1 Jurong West Central 2, #B1-09, Jurong Point, Singapore 648886
Opening hours: Daily 9am to 11pm

10. Sushi Plus

Sushi Plus offers economical sushi, with prices starting from just $1.50++. We highly recommend trying the Triple Flavour Salmon Selection ($5++), which features aburi salmon with three delicious toppings: Caramel, Cheese, and Mentaiko. If you prefer something lighter on the palate, the Cheese Masago with Tamagoyaki ($1.50++ per piece) is an excellent choice. This sushi features capelin roe and a soft, fluffy omelette, creating a pleasant contrast of textures. Additionally, the omelette’s pudding-like sweetness and savoury cheese masago complement each other perfectly.

Address: 200 Victoria Street, #02-53, Bugis Junction, Singapore 188021
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 9:30pm
