    I second @KevinC. You'd really have to try hard to find any sushi here that isn't *good* sushi, so the price is what you want to pay... Sushi train places are a go-to fave of ours; the hubs and I can fill our bellies for under $20 usually. There are a few famous sushi chefs here that can charge top dollar- starting at $300 for a meal. If you have Netflix, you should check out "jiro dreams of sushi," that'll make ya drool. :)

    Sushi in Japan is cheap and fresh, "Sushi Train" restaurant it will cost about 1 USD per dish - 2 sushi. "Above average" sushi restaurant it will cost about $1 to $4 per sushi. "Top" sushi restaurant it will cost about $10 to $20 per sushi. No choice, they chief pick the sushi for you.

    Start from around 10,000 yen for a set 'menu' in the really fancy places. Maybe. 500 yen for a tray from the supermarket.

    I've never had or even heard of bad sushi in Japan. You can get sushi for as cheap as 100 yen! :D Find a sushi restaurant with sushi going around and around on a mini conveyor belt. You can pick whatever you want, and the price depends on what colour the plate is. :D

    Most prefectures have free magazines full of adverts. They are a great way to learn about what's in your area. Our local one is "Moteco" and it often has sushi restaurants listed, sometimes they have coupons for discounts too. :-)

    It depends upon sushi restaurant. Normally it costs around 800 yen in supermarket. And more than 2000 yen in some famous restaurant.

    "Real sushi" is not expensive in Japan. Sushi is basically diner food in Japan, like cheeseburgers in the United States. It's not particularly expensive. But the really good sushi is only near the ocean. You have to go where the fish are caught and brought in to get the best sushi. Otherwise, it's no big deal. There's good sushi and bad sushi in Japan. Most of it is cheap, but of course there are expensive places as well.

    I have had bad sushi in Japan!! The fish seemed okay, but the rice was gross! I think 100-400 is a fair estimate at normal places. If the restaurant is empty during a meal time, don't bother!

    Sushi on the train is basically always 108¥ (including tax), and in my opinion very delicious! Check out the restaurant chains called uobei, Sushiro or Hamasushi.

    You can go to sushi train type restaurants and they are usually ¥100-¥300 a plate. Or go to a fancier restaurant and prepare to spend ¥100,00. There are so many sushi places, you really can spend any amount you budget for.

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
