A Hidden Treasure!

I actually have had very good experiences here (been more than once). I'm not sure why they're not busier. I've had the fish and chips - very fresh! - and also my first experience with Swai (white fish). I thought it was delicious! You get to pick out how you want it prepared, and, in addition... read more

Very casual, very clean, order at the counter restaurant. There is a lot of variety of fish to pick from as well as ways it is prepared-from healthy grilled to not so healthy fried. We had the fish tacos, very good and fried fish also very good and fried shrimp which were very tough. You can choose various sides, I... More

This restaurant would be good at the beach. Too much fried, coleslaw is bland. Great for a younger crowd.

We only ate 2 dishes so other food might be better. The place was clean with 2 large TVs set to ESPN sport center with no sound or closed captions and soft rock background music. You order at the counter and then they bring the food. The staff was young and pleasant.. The shrimps were indeed large. The long slices... More

An unpretentious, moderately-sized fast-food style fish reataurant in Old Town Monrovia. Self service as in most fast food places, but given with a sincere smile and given quickly. The food itself is all fish and seafood, which is available fried, of course, but also sauteed and grilled with a choice of three different sauces. The food was cooked right in... More

The menu is so varied and large that I had a hard time choosing. I'm not sure that salmon should ever be breaded, but I really enjoyed it. The shrimp were awesome as were the sweet potatoe fries. What surprised me the most is that the side Caesar salad was 5 star restaurant quality. I would love to go back... More
