They said the cod was fresh today, and maybe it was. I had the fish and chips. The cod was tasty, but it was all breading, and not much fish. No comparison to fish and chips in England. The price was reasonable, the atmosphere eclectic, but I would have liked to have paid a bit more and gotten more fish,... More

The food is good and plentiful and the customer service is exceptional. Being in a food court having a variety of excellent vendors, your whole group can find something to their liking!

Ordered the halibut and they gave me some cod to try. Dinky little food court and I feel like a food critic. Good portions and very fresh. The reviews were spot on.

Great Fish and chips and priced well within a tight budget. Though the Freighthouse itself has limited shops and is mostly empty, Paya Thai Fish and Chips located in the food court is worth a visit if you happen to be in the area of the Tacoma Dome and would like some really good fish and chips. Chowder is good... More

Told my travel partner that I wanted some good fish n chips from the PNW. Well he didn't disappoint - took me to Paya Thai Fish & Chips and the daily special was fresh Cod & Shrimp and fries. Just what the palate was asking for. Excellent quality food and a huge quantity also! Treat yourself if you're a fresh... More

I really wanted fish and chips and thought I'd try this place after ask the great reviews! Wow, I can't say enough about how awesome this place was. The only negative is most of the shops on the freighthouse square were closed during the peak lunch time. I was greeted by a nice gentleman who walked thru the menu and... More
