Whenever we do not want go out for fancy dinner or have a craving for sushi we go to Jimmy the Fish. The food is good, as is the wine and the ambience is pleasantly casual. Always a good choice

Hubby and I visited Jimmy the Fish for what we hoped would be a quick lunch. We ended up waiting over an hour for our food which was really disappointing. The food was good when it came - one steak was a little overcooked but was tender nonetheless. The manager did come and offer us a complimentary drink to apologise for the wait, which was much appreciated.

In short, the food was good and the service ok, but the wait really was a bit too long to be acceptable.

I haven't been to Jimmy the Fish in years. Last night I thought we should go again as we always enjoyed our meals there. Unfortunately that was not the case. The standard and quality of the food was terrible. The calamari rings I had was so thin and rubbery. They must have changed suppliers of their produce. The sushi was also not what I am used to. Our waitress was friendly. I am sorry, but I can not recommend the restaurant to anybody.

Was my first time here. We popped in and took advantage of their Sunday evening half price sushi. It is quite a large restaurant with outside and inside tables as well as a room for the kids to play in. Our waitress was a young black girl who did an awesome job. She was friendly and kept the ice for the wine coming without us having to ask. Always a smile on her face. The sushi arrived not long after ordering and it hit the right spot. It was well presented and tasted great. We will most certainly return in the very near future.

You are really spoilt for choices on this menu with prices that are really reasonable.
The staff is friendly and there is a great indoor play area for the kids.
