Tucked away on the fourth level of NEX mall near the Serangoon Gardens suburb, Little Fish Shop is, at its name implies, a puny orange-accented space proffering an ambitious menu of seafood delights.
Came to eat here as the food was quite good when I came with my mom. Was with my friends and came at lunch time and saw that they had a student's special.
The mushroom soup we ordered actually was quite nice but was really too salty. My friends and I all ordered student meals. The fish in the fish and chips was noticeably smaller than when ordered without student meal. But it was fried well. The clam aglio olio I ordered smelled sour and not fresh when it came. When the pasta was sent back to be recooked, it came back without the clam shells, and did not smell sour. But the clam bits that were strewn all over the pasta tasted sour and not fresh.
Service from the lady in green was very bad. She showed that she was obviously ticked off when I asked for a change in main course since the pasta really wasn't fresh.
Also the clams were from the can, not fresh ones.
I feel that they gave us smaller portions or less quality because we ordered student meals which cost less.. Although that is misleading..because it's supposed to be a promotion.. And also they seemed to feel that they could treat us less respectfully since we were students and not working adults.
A spin-off, or branch of Greenwood Seafood Bistro (review here), the Little Fish Shop is truly a hidden gem tucked away on level 4 of Nex Shopping Mall - just when I thought I knew Nex well enough! Little Fish Shop is the expansion into the heartlands, serving quality, fresh and affordable seafood dishes from around the world.
The Ocean Trout (SGD$24.95) from the same section, pan-seared. It was served with 2 sides, so *Janice opted for mashed potatoes and chips. Her feedback was that the Ocean Trout was good, but bore a striking resemblance to salmon in aesthetics and palatial aspects, as well as the creamy, flakey texture.
The the Ling Cod (SGD$26.95), having been described to bear resemblance to the cod and catfish (doesn't sound right huh). I opted for pan-seared doneness and sides of fresh green salad and chips. The fish did taste like catfish - the more taut version of it, a little creamy as well, but nothing like black cod. Regardless, the fish was fresh and tasted good; chips were crispy and greens were refreshing.

Been here many times and tried many of their food. Really nice food and good environment, worth the price. Will definitely recommend group or individual.
Their seafood are fresh, good to try. Will go back for their food.
