Very fresh fish and high quality. Their lobster is quite good but large sizes and salads expensive. You can opt for a lobster roll or shrimp as well. Issues are seating is tight and lunch time is chaotic. Otherwise food wise it is home run

The place is heaving at lunchtime, but now I know why... there is a system of ordering at one window and collecting at the next. It’s all very efficient, but there are multiple queues and it’s all a bit frantic. The food is perfectly prepared and served, very speedily and using largely sustainable materials, cardboard and paper. This is not a relaxing place to have lunch but the food cannot be faulted. The choice is huge and the prices are okay. The fish and seafood is amazingly fresh too. Great lunch.

lunch with my wife and our 1 year old son. we sat in the sushi area at the counter and wanted to eat sushi. clearly our son can not eat food, for he brought food from home. the staff did not say anything else and we passed away angry and upset. FOR FAMILIES WITH SMALL CHILDREN TO AVOID !!!

Be sure to come here hungry as you will walk away feeling great. They offer many different varieties of seafood which looks and tastes awesome. This explains why it seems to be so crowded at lunch time. I would recommend getting here early as the crowds may find it tough to get a good spot to eat at. The food is a little on the pricey side but well worth it!!!!
