Just a few minutes away from the bustle of Oxford Circus, the seafood restaurant Cape Town Fish Market offers a variety of seafood and sushi with a South African feel.

We marvelled at the live lobster tank as we walked in although I felt rather sorry for their inevitable outcome.  However, a huge tank full of beautiful tropical fish also welcomes you into a unique and fun environment.

You can choose between eating at a table or at the moving sushi bar. The menu takes a while to choose from with its many choices, ranging from seafood favourites such as calamari to sea bass. The restaurant also offer steak, ribs and salads.

Cape Town Fish Market is well-known in its native land of South Africa and its popularity is growing in London. The décor is informal yet impressive. 

We ordered seafood soup and fishcakes to start which were absolutely delicious. The salmon glazed in a ginger Teriyaki sauce and the prawns in an Asian sauce that followed left us very impressed with both the food and the service.

The location is ideal for people planning to see a show at the London Palladium which is next door  or for a break from shopping in Carnaby Street  and Oxford Street
