I opted for the salmon and chips to see what it was like and to break away from the norm. It was so much better than I expected and it turned out to be the best fnc I had on my whole 2 week Vancouver trip. I went to two other so called 'best' fnc joints in Vancouver & Vancouver... More

It would have been nice to be able to sit indoors at a regular dining table. Very expensive for the size of fish that was served. ($50.00 for 3 adult halibut fish and chips).

This is a very popular place to eat, for me though it was a disappointment. The prices are high. For $15.00 you get two pieces of Cod and French Fries. If you want salmon or halibut its even more costly. You eat outside at tables. I would choose to eat somewhere else time to get coleslaw and a little more... More

I am a Fish & Chip Lover. I have had it in every city in B.C, Ontario including London & Dublin. This has to be one of the best. Great flavour, not greasy. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. You get what you pay for and I find there I get a quality product.

After walking by several restaurants along the Steveston waterfront, I decided to try Pajo's for some classic fish and chips. The Pajo's order taker suggested the halibut. Even though it was a warm sunny day, with multiple parties awaiting their food, my order was ready within a few minutes. The batter was light and the fish was flaky, moist and... More

Fresh fish in the right setting. No wonder there are long line ups here. Sitting out in the sun eating fish &chips is my idea of heaven!

I have not been to Pajo's in years. I always rated this very best fish and chips until this past Saturday. We happened to be in the neighbourhood and I started to get the 'Pajo's' cravings. Down the wharf we went. I looked at their menu and noticed the high prices. We ordered the small halibut. It came out with... More

A lot of fish and chips shops in Steveston say they are the best, but Pajo's is the real deal. Their batter is light, flaky and never over-cooked. Their fish is fresh as fresh can be, or at least it tastes that way. Their fries are real potatoes and the service is always efficient. It has to be, the place... More

Pajo's is simply the best fish and chips in Richmond, or anywhere. Portions are very generous. The fish has a very thin batter letting you really enjoy the fish itself, and fries are not greasy at all.
