We are a unique style of restaurant, where as we do not have a printed food menu. Our concept is that of a fish market. We have a large display counter with all our fresh fish. The waiters will guide the guests through the display, explaining all the different flavours and textures. All the fish is priced by weight, so guests will choose their sizes and be shown all prices before the food is cooked. So the price is determined by the guests. We also have a sushi bar that offers a large selection of traditional and our own special sushi dishes.

For the non-fish eaters, our chefs can create a variety of salads and vegetarian/chicken or beef Asian styled stir fry with egg noodles.

All fish dishes are Halaal, with exception to some of our sushi dishes were sake is used in some sauces.

I trust this explains our unique style of dining and we look forward to having you enjoy The Codfather experience.

Below are some fish & shellfish descriptions that we offer at our restaurant. Availability of the following fish differs from day to day as we source in the freshest products.
