Want quality sushi without making your wallet weep? Hong Kong boasts a considerable amount of high-end Japanese eateries with divine menus of sushi and exotic fish, but there are just as many sushi joints offering fine and fresh seafood at tempting prices, from sashimi and tempura to hand-pressed nigiri and gunkan-maki warship rolls. Here are the best spots to find affordable sushi in Hong Kong.

Sushiro is a popular conveyor belt sushi restaurant chain boasting over 530 branches in Japan and overseas. With over 20 locations across Hong Kong, it serves up over 100 types of sushi, hot dishes, fried foods, and desserts at an affordable price. Some innovative standouts include the shrimp nigiri with grilled cheese, fried shrimp avocado roll, and pumpkin tempura. You can either use the Sushiro app to enter the dining waitlist, or walk in for a ticket—just remember to do it early, as the queues tend to get long.

Sushi Express

With branches dotted all over Hong Kong, Sushi Express offers good, fresh sushi at low prices. Despite a limited range of choices, you can get familiar options at a friendly price, including the flower love sushi, salmon nigiri, and crab flavour warship. Its sister brand, Sushi Takeout, is also ideal for on-the-go diners who’d like to pick up some tasty morsels.

No affordable sushi list would be complete without a Genki mention. A well-known brand of conveyor belt sushi restaurants in Hong Kong, Genki Sushi pops up almost everywhere in town. Its menu choices are abundant and, most importantly, sold at a palatable price point. What you see is what you get: cheap and cheerful. Aside from the classics like flying fish roe gunkan and salmon hand roll, Genki also sells a range of original sushi creations, such as soft shell crab rolls with avocado and tuna with spicy miso sauce gunkan.

Sushi Tachi

Sushi Tachi is a hole-in-the-wall sushi diner that’s always jam-packed with people queuing outside of it—so you know it’s worth going to. With only enough space for about 10 patrons to dine simultaneously in the store, it may not be apt for those looking for a comfy sushi restaurant to unwind and hang out in with your loved ones. Nevertheless, Sushi Tachi offers delectable gunkan and sushi sets at a reasonable prices. Its menu ranges from seared flounder gunkan and red snapper gunkan to the ultimate sea urchin mini rice bowl.

Sakara Ichi Sushi

A Yuen Long staple, Sakara Ichi Sushi has built a loyal following throughout the years due to its well-rounded selection and solid prices. Now with its second location open in Causeway Bay, the most notable dish is the jaw-droppingly low-priced seared sushi menu: Whether it’s seared salmon, eel, scallop, or more, you’d be perplexed to figure out how you’re getting such good-quality sashimi for such wallet-friendly prices. Pair your sushi feast with one of the countless sides, such as the salmon donburi or spicy noodles.

Kokon2 specialises in innovative sushi rolls. Its signature is the Fuji Mountain, where eel and avocado sushi rolls are topped with a generous heap of seared imitation crab meat and crisps (yes, you read that right). Other must-try items include the cream cheese, beef, and strawberry Fire Red Lips, as well as the Rock and Roll with tempura shrimp and eel. Adventurous eaters would love the Sushi Pizza, a poster child of fusion food.
