Disclaimer: I have only had their sushi.
They used to have a special on Tuesdays: 50% off 'classic' sushi (which is almost all of their sushi). It must've been too popular because now it's only 30%. There are other specials on other days (on fish&chips, burgers,...).
Even at 30% off it's still more expensive than most of the local places. But food quality is excellent and nicely presented. Great variety as well.
Ordering small batches of sushi multiple times is no problem at all.
Bonus: their menu itself is a piece of art. Classy pictures of practically every item on the menu.

Food was great at fish market, they have a wide variety menu and a great cocktail list. Some of the tables you eat at are on the sand which i though was really cool, makes you feel like you are on the beach. The service we had was very average. The waitress we had came across quite moody, questions we had about the food she answered with attitude and rolled her eyes a couple of times. The food also took a very long time to come out and there was at least an hour or so in between starters and main meals. In saying this alot of the places we have eaten in south africa the food takes a while to come out but this was quite ridiculous. All in all it was a pleasant enough experience but the wait staff really let it down.
