Goldfish is all about taking classical dishes and transforming them to fit with contemporary trends and techniques. A modern, neighbourhood restaurant that serves the local community with professionally-prepared dishes made from high quality produce.
The interiors combine wooden planks with black highlights in the furniture and shelving. An underlit bar creates a classy yet relaxed atmosphere with trailing plants adding to the friendly, neighbourhood feel.
The menu's focus on high quality ingredients and traditional cooking techniques ensures diners will not be left unimpressed by the flavours and plates presented to them by the warm waiting staff. Starters feature three different seafood capaccio's that are all brightly coloured and appealing; jumping on the tempura vegetable favourite, the menu offers a green bean tempura with a citrusy mayo.
A selection of sushi in the main dishes includes nigiri and larger rolls. If you're feeling brave, opt for the Volcano, we can only begin to imagine why this dish was named in such a way when it includes teriyaki salmon, crab, cucumber and the culprit - flamed mayo.
Specialising in both sushi and yakitori, the next section of the menu offers up a variety of meats marinated in different sauces. The lamb satay in a peanut sauce sounds deliciously tempting. For larger appetites, a great offering of seafood is once again included as well as wagyu beef sliders and striploin.
The dessert menu is short but covers all bases - one that takes an Eton mess and infuses it with rose; one over-the-top chocolate bomber (dark chocolate tart, base and ice cream); and one refreshing ice cream sandwich.
Sticking with the traditional Japanese option of tea, the drinks list also shows off its contemporary style with some theatrical cocktails. From a classic pina colada to the watermelon-based Agua Fresca or the Tea Bird, all the cocktails are beautifully presented with a delicate garnish.
