Fresh & awesome boston lobster

http://poohlovesfood.com/2014/11/19/little-fish-shop/ for the full review with pics.

Finally tried Little Fish Shop after so many years it has been in Nex! Tried most of the restaurants in Nex except for this! It’s one of the more ‘Atas’ restaurant which specializes in fish and seafood in nex. Their flagship store was Greenwood Fish Bistro & Market at Greenwood Avenue where they sell fresh fish and seasonal seafood for you to prepare your own food at home in additional to their bistro.

Lobster Bisque: Very thick and rich in taste with chunks of lobster meat. The soup is totally filled with the essence of lobsters. Very flavorful and appetite whetting dish!

Hot Seafood Platter with Additional Half Boston Lobster: There’s a choice of hot and cold seafood platter. We decided to go for the hot one. The hot platter consists of various shellfish like clams and green muscles cooked in broth, grilled prawns and calamari, deep fried soft shell crab and fish fillet, fries and some greens. And we add on half grilled Boston lobster. The lobster is awesome! Fresh, sweet, meaty and crunchy. The seasoning and flavor from the grill, totally seeps into the lobster meat and it tasted so good! Shellfish in broth is good too, the broth is quite heavy in its taste, a lil salty and could taste a lil white wine. All the seafood used were really fresh and good. Calamari was grilled just nice, a little chewy but not tough on teeth but had that over burnt taste though. The boston lobster is still my favourite out of the whole platter!

All in all, enjoyed the seafood feast in the little fish shop. They have daily promotions too where some of their seafood like oysters are wallet friendly! I am gonna check it out when i can!

good seafood, weak service

hotos and more: http://andmorefood.wordpress.com/2014/06/02/the-little-fish-shop-serangoon-nex/

an offspin of the greenwood fish market, this place serves good seafood and fish dishes - it's fancy and yet not: the dishes are properly and beautifully plated, but preparation of the white meat is usually simple and served with condiments that let it shine.

it's a pretty compact menu full of easy favorites, and appetizers run from the common battered calamari rings and chips all fried up golden and greaseless (rather an indication that commonness is nothing to scoff at),

it's really good food without all that inconvenience of their sister establishment, and particularly good for those weeknight dinners when you want something a little more special, but nothing too poncy or tiresome. service may be the weakest link here, with barely enough wait staff shuffling between the tabels taking orders and dishing up, and it can get pretty harried and (dare I say) snarky at times. but it's a small thing - relax, sit down to a good meal, and let that all wash over you.

Bad Service

The food is good but the bad service ruins the meal. Encountered a waiter at the Nex outlet who was rude. I definitely won't go back.

Highly recommended

Been here a couple of times with my boyfriend. Price is a little steep for us but the food quality is good enough to justify the price. Fish & Chips, Come with salad & a large potion of chips. Thin crust & succulent fillet. Tartar sauce taste ok but their in house speciality sauce taste awesome! Boston Lobster, Sweet & Juicy. Do come earlier on Monday for the Lobster promotion. Service is good & friendly. But if its full -house you gotta prepared to wait a little. Attended by a waiter name, Nicholas. Great service, friendly & attentive. Had a great time chatting with him a little. Do look out for him if you're going, knowledgeable enough to recommend the best and fresh dishes for us.

Glass in my food, TWICE!

Went here as a couple because we really like oysters. You have to order two mains to get access to the $1 oysters, which we thought were fresh and nice. Our mains were scallop pasta and fish and chips.

Fish and chips were pretty good, nicely fried with the right dips. We would have come back for this and the oysters.

BUT.

Three or four bites into my scallop pasta I bit on something hard. I thought it was maybe a shell. NO! It was a piece of glass about the half size of a singapore 5 cent coin. WHAT? That could have cut up my insides.

I immediately flagged over the manager who apologized and asked me if I wanted a new one dish of pasta. I hesitated but said ok, the taste wasn't so bad.

Later in the meal the next one came out. It was also tasting good so I joked that I should just chew carefully. My partner laughed and I nearly finished the fresh plate before I bit into ANOTHER PIECE OF GLASS!!!!

Ok, this is ridiculous, and we flagged him over again and he apologized. This time he didn't offer to make me a new plate of food because I had already finished it.

We got up to leave and settle what we thought would basically be a free meal. He offerred us a 10% discount on JUST the mains we ordered and apologized a lot.

We didn't say anything at that time but, hey guys, come on, you served me glass and still had the balls to charge me for the food.

We would have otherwise considered coming back to this place DESPITE the service being a bit slow.

However, trust isn't there, and I was a bit unimpressed by their 10% 'sorry we almost cut up your insides with glass' discount.

Summary:

1 - GLASS IN FOOD TWICE
2 - Service slow
3 - Food taste is there
4 - Price is more than I would pay for what I got
