Fish Shak - any good?

Saw an ad for Fish Shak in the NOW paper today. It looks interesting.

I love fried and grilled fish, preferably spicy.

Anyone been? Would you recommend it?

  1. Their butter fish escovitch is really good. So is the bammy. I love the fish soup (not sure if that's the fish tea on their menu). We did have to ask for hot sauce, there wasn't any kick to our dishes. Tasty but definitely not spicy. Our waiter was also the cook so be prepare to wait a bit. We went early so it wasn't too bad but by the end of our stay, the dining room was full and he was very very busy. And they're popular for takeout so he was working on those orders as well. I would definitely go back.

        When I see "butter fish" I think of the dangerous (and unfortunately delicious) escolar--was this another type of fish being used?

        If it's something other than escolar I'm making a beeline there!! :)
