Fish Basket

A very old-fashioned canteen-style restaurant, which serves decent lobster

Time Out Says

Back in the day, we're sure Fish Basket was considered a bit of a gem. Laidback and retro, with kitsch sunny murals on the wall, we can imagine it thrived in the ’80s. Today it still seems to attract a decent crowd, even though everything about it suggests it remains in a time warp. With an unimpressive exterior and even less appealing interior, service leaves a lot to be desired (yes, you will be steered towards the most expensive option, and no, your questions won't really be listened to). The food itself is so-so, though certainly not worth the price tag. We certainly wouldn't recommend you cross town for anything available from this fish basket.
