Haven't been eating out anywhere new recently so this is all I have to contribute. But I thought what the hay.
I recently hit up Sushi Sky on Yonge north of College after walking past it X number of times. Although their gyoza is just deep fried mush like most places, I can't complain about the other offerings there. Authentic, no. But decent sashimi and sushi for a decent price? Sure; a quick after-work meal there proved to be quite good for the value. I got the party tray, which was a big boat load of goodies (about 36pcs in all) for $25. The rice wasn't dry, the fish tasted fresh, they used real octopus, and it arrived reasonably quickly.
South of Bloor, also on the West side is a new-ish? (I've never noticed it before) looking place called Sushi BBQ. I'm not sold on the Korean-Japanese fusion thing in some cases but this place wasn't too bad at all. For $9.95 you get a bento box that includes salad, some soft, sticky soba-like noodles, 6 pcs. of sushi and a heap of BBQ chicken on bean sprouts. They've got a lot of similar offerings. Any gym rats needing a quick fix of clean protein, rice and veggies for ~$10 would do well to check this place out.
Again, maybe nothing new here and not exactly gourmet, but, if you're trekking up and down Yonge and get overwhelmed by the number of 'Sushi' places, I just felt that these two aren't bad. You can catch a reasonably priced decent quality meal at either spot before heading out of the core.
