We are hosting a party this weekend and wanted to order some sushi platters, but need to do so as cheaply as possible. Any suggestions?

    Sushi On Bloor has the cheapest well sized party platter. You get 90 pieces for $45 and they're not small.

      Might help to let us know which part of town you're in?

        I'm in midtown but willing to drive a reasonable distance!

          I honestly have no idea how much their platters go for, but Sushi Supreme on Yonge north of Davisville has decent and reasonbly priced sushi.

        My last three experiences at SOB have been very positive. I actually ordered in delivery last night, and the fish was surprisingly fresh and tasty. For the budget minded, SOB is better than ever. An added bonus is that they'll deliver.

        sushi time on bloor between spadina and bathurst (diagonally across the street from sushi on bloor) is pretty good...jun jun sushi around college and bathurst is also quite cheap...enjoy. :)

          Hi Shannon.

          I really like Kokyo Sushi @ Alexander and Yonge . . . We have ordered the platters there before for parties and they have always been well received...

            I second Kokyo. I order platters from there regularly and they've always been fresh, with generous portions at a good price.

            T&T supermarkets have incredibly inexpensive sushi.

              I just tried T&T sushi last week and was really unimpressed. The rice is terrible. I mean, I guess you get what you pay for, but I think Sushi on Bloor is better value for a platter, way tastier.

                Fair enough! I didn't know where the OP was located, so wanted to throw it out as an option for cheap sushi platters. :)

              Hubby & I occasionally get a sushi platter from Domenic’s Fish Market at the St Lawrence Market. It's $45 for the party platter. Reasonable quality and decent selection although nothing really exotic. The sushi chef is only available on Saturday's and only until noon. That means you have to have enough storage space in your fridge to accommodate. We generally take the platter out about a half hour or so prior to dining to get the fish up to temperature.

              Daio on Carlton has platters available as well and are very reliable in terms of quality and freshness. Decent prices although I don't have their flyer with me right now so can't quote them.

              Has everyone fallen out of love with Sushi Marche on Queen E? Take-out only.

                Oh no, I'm still very much in love with Sushi Marche. But the pricing is comparable to somewhere like Japango, definitely not an "as cheaply as possible" place.
