Service was really good, ordered the Teriyaki Salmon, Taylor made fried rice, California roll and two cookie dough desserts. Teriyaki Salmon was such a generous size! Fried rice tasted authentic and used real crab meat for the California rolls which is super rear! And desserts are yummo! Highly recommend

Amazing food, so delicious. It arrives as it's ready, and is definitely shareable. We ordered pork belly Bao, karaage chicken, duck salad, and fried rice. The karaage had cornflakes coating and was incredible, duck salad was beautiful and fresh.
The bao were a little of a let down for me as there wasn't too much of a contrast in texture between the bun and the meat, and the flavour profile was missing some acidity but I am fussy.

Highly recommend the trip out here!!!

The good news is that this restaurant does not follow the same "shabby chic" lines of many competitors: real chairs, nice tables, real china, in a decent envelope. Service: also very adequate.
OK - so far good.
Perhaps I was unlucky with my selection: IMHO the food I ordered was just average (Bulgogi Beef), the appetizer actually below average (Karooge Chicken).
It was well presented and definitely looked appetizing, with decently crunchy mouth feeling - but the chicken pieces were devoid of taste.
Marinated beef: texture and taste of meat good, but the complex harmony of taste was killed by an overdose of salty bean sauce ... at least that is what my taste-buds signaled :-(
This was my first sampling at Big Fish. Probably would be worthwhile to go for another test run to confirm or dispel my impression.

After a frantic day at work sometimes you just cant face cooking/picking up take out. Big fish Eatery is a great option. Healthy, tasty, fast. (home delivery within 1/2 hour)

I ordered Chilli edamame beans, Soft shell crab and a side salad. Everything tasted great with a standout chilli sauce on the edamame beans that was a taste explosion. it was hard to pick a few dishes everything on the menu sounded yum and I will totally be heading back to Big Fish to try the larger plates.

Big bonus that the soft shell crab was still crunchy deep fired goodness by the time the food was delivered. Serving size was generous considering I ordered from the starter and sizes menu.

This out of the way spot is near to work. Very tasty pan-Asian food and a great price. I have eaten here about 5 times and can say I would thoroughly recommend every dish eaten. The portion size is generous for the price.
