We went to the restaurant for a last lunch before the girls went back to University. Perhaps the time we went was unusual, but there was only one other couple in the restaurant. we sat at the sushi counter, the choice was very limited and not very fresh when we did eventually choose. Disappointing end to a lovely holiday.

I had some work to do between flights and noticed a quiet corner in the restaurant where I could work unhindered. The service was good and the fish was excellent. Can definitely recommend this restaurant.

Knowing my wife's love of sushi I popped in asking about whether this seemingly more upmarket restaurant would let me buy sushi takeaway. And yes... They do! Service was quick and they were happy to accommodate. My wife enjoyed her meal and said I was very tasty. Only drawback was the price. I thought it was quite expensive for what... More

The interior is well designed. The place draws you in with its sea vibe. The service is ok, nothing special. More knowledge of specials and product offerings would be helpful. The food was average at best and very overpriced. I could get the same thing at John Dory's or Ocean Basket for almost half the price. Anticipated 5 star but... More

Had just eaten the night before at the Suncoast branch. Was happy with my kingklip delight at Suncoast. Next day chose same option at king Shaka branch. Sadly disappointing. Fish was firm and I tried to stay positive but my guest ordered the platter (surprisingly seen in the pictures on TripAdvisor as it looks just as sad). Back to the... More

The food was from very poor quality. The rice and noodles seemed to be a couple of days old, and were off. The fish was average. Most cheap snack bars have better food for a much lower price. The bathroom wasn't clean.

Oysters were buttery and the local wine tasty. Only disappointment was the size of my prawn and calamari main. Great lunch for an airport.

It was my first time eating at a CTFM, and I am sorry to say that the experience left a whole lot to be desired!! The absolute worse sushi I have eaten in my entire life!! It was pathetic! I then had fish cakes, and what a disappointment - they were really not good, although the salad was not too... More
