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

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

The seafood is very fresh. The taste of the food prepared is good. I come here for lunch atleast once a week with my co-workers. For the price of the lunch special and the quality of the seafood, you cannot beat. Everyone that i've taken here has been amazed by the quality of the food. Its a very clean and... 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

Thought my mother & I would go to a sit down restaurant. Well, we were taken by surprise when we walked in. Here is this huge building. When you walk in, it is small! I counted 6 booths and about the same in tables. We both ordered a fish plate. For two of us it was about $32. I wouldn't... More
