Enjoyed being able to select fresh fish/seafood that was then cooked on the spot for you. Great ocean side experience.

Whenever we are on the Gold Coast we try and stop for a good feed of fresh seafood. I doesn't matter what time of the day you call in there is always a long line up for cooked food. If you are wanting seafood on a public holiday you need to order as there is always a high demand and... More

You can tell how popular this place is by the line-up. Heaps of people waiting and ordering. We had the special - fish, chips, calamari and prawns. Was really nice.

Not sure about the fish (basa) being from Vietnam and the place outside is unclean from all the bird droppings, the fish just melted in my mouth and was fresh and moist. Enjoyed with a side of hot chips, this made my family dinner enjoyable but not very filling. If l knew to order more I would have. Worth queuing... More

We had heard some good reviews of this place so thought we would give it a try. After queuing up in the shop, I noticed a sign stating that the "special" fish was imported frozen basa fish from Vietnam. What fishmonger in their right mind would even dare to go near this fish is beyond me. We ordered the take... More

Been there many times. Fish always fresh ,clean & beautifully displayed. You can have it cooked in a few ways by very obliging staff or take home to prepare yourself. Nice to eat there.
