A slightly over-exaggerated negative trend. I think after hearing people visiting lately that they are improving conciderably. We stuck to the sudhi menu. Not the all you can eat for R169, and I am quite happy about the variety and freshness. Service was top notch, thou we could see room for improvement in some areas. All in all, a well priced, nice sushi lunch that was completely lawless. Would return again for a second opinion!

After hearing from friends how great this place was we visited with high expectations. It wasn't busy so we decided to sit at the carousel to get quick access to the sushi buffet - big mistake - I don't even know why they have a carousel as there were literally ten items on it, which stayed there most of the night. We ended up placing orders with the waitress who seemed to have a hearing or maybe an understanding problem as our first order arrived with at least two mistakes. However, things did look up from there as we plodded on and overall the quality of the offering is not bad. Don't think there will be any repeat business from us though as even though the restaurant was not busy we waited interminably long for our orders to arrive. Definitely not a "Fast food" place.

We have been to the Golden Fish a number of times for the Sushi Buffet and have never been disappointed. They always have new items on the menu and the Sushi is fresh and very tasty. They are not the cheapest buffet in Cape Town, but are pretty good.

We went as a family of 5. We went on recommedation of good friends but found our food not up to standard.
The waitress was good, friendly, joked with our boys but food was a let down.
We did order sushi starter but it was not made to standard we were led to believe they served.
Our main meals were overcooked & not very appetizing. I don't like giving bad reviews but this was a let down...we may try again another day...just don't know when.
Good luck though.

The best in town, from Salmon roses to tempura prawns. On a Mondays to Wednesday eat as much as you can.
