MY fiance and I have been coming here for years and we loved the quality and variety of the sushi buffet, it simply was amazing. I don't know what the new owners are trying to do but they are destroying an amazing restaurant. They are in the process of stopping the buffet that kept them full. The restaurant was dirty,...

Making a decision on what to eat when on holiday becomes a problem. Deciding to go the "Chinese" route brought us to Golden Fish. What a pleasant surprise! On entering we found a restaurant which was decorated tastefully and nothing of the "cheap" Chinese look. We were seated in the very spacious smoking area which also was close to the... More

This place was a huge disappointment. The service was terrible. Our drinks order watch totally botched. The food order was wrong. And a disappointment as I really wanted that "Mushgargot" dish. We waited for what seemed like an eternity for our orders. It's a mystery as the place was not busy. The waiter must have been just appointed or doing... More

The food is at best average and the service is non existing, best to avoid . It could be a good place to dine however it would take some positive involvement by the managers .

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... More

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...

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... More

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

Oh dear! Such a disappointment! The food was overcooked and tasteless and the service was abysmal. An absolute worst review that I hope to ever report on... We ordered Spring rolls, Chicken wings, Duck and Singapore Noodles. The food took nearly 40 minutes to arrive and the restaurant was empty! When the food arrived it was overcooked, dry and tasteless.... More
