What makes this fish eatery so special is the accessibility of the menu, which allows you to tailor your meal to suit your own personal tastes. There are endless possibilities on offer at Simply Fish. Think sizzling marinated chilli prawns coated in an exotic Thai coconut sauce. Savour a succulent piece of pan-fried sea bass, or the latest catch of Cornish mussels, moistened with a delectable white wine and aioli sauce. Other sauces include the distinctively Asian inspired soya, ginger and oyster number and the traditional creamy hollandaise sauce. The selection of side dishes and desserts complements the approach, offering an international fusion flavour to cater for the capital’s vibrant and eclectic customer base.

Simply Fish can also be found in Camden, and there are plans to open more outlets throughout London this year.
