When Seafood Plus first opened its busi­ness in 2017, Fish and Chips did not thirve as it did to­day.

To­day, the restau­rant has seen a spike in de­mand for its fish and chips over the last three years.

Lo­cated along Bau street next to the Mo­bil Ser­vice sta­tion in Flagstaff Suva, Seafood Plus has also al­lowed eat-ins.

Ini­tially Seafood Plus was a grab and go fish and chips restau­rant. Seafood Plus man­ager Vi­jay Nath said they carefeully se­lected the pric­ing to suit the quan­tity of the serv­ings.

He said it was also the recipe used to make the fish and chips.

Th­ese were tac­tics that at­tracted the cus­tomers.

“We have cus­tomers who are reg­u­lars and they be­lieve in us be­cause of the taste.

“We get com­ments from cus­tomers that they are the cheap­est in town, so we make sure that the serve is worth the money,” he said..

“Some­times we may cut the fish in dif­fer­ent sizes so we give cus­tomers an ex­tra piece,” he said.

Menu

■Seafood Plus cur­rently sells fish and chips at $5 per serve which in­cludes three piece crumbed fish with mar­i­na­tion, lemon, chilies and tomato sauce.

■Aside from this, the restau­rant also sells chicken and chips for $7.95 which in­cludes two piece crumbed drum­stick, one piece chicken wing with mar­i­na­tion with lemon, chilies and tomato sauce.

Seafood Plus was formerly a grab and go restau­rant but has also switched to in­clude eat­ing in.

The busi­ness cur­rently has four em­ploy­ees work­ing.

At the time Nau­sori was un­der lock­down be­cause of COVID-19 pos­i­tive cases in the area, the busi­ness had to close for two weeks.

This is be­cause the ma­jor­ity of its em­ploy­ees re­side in Nau­sori.

Ex­pan­sion plans

Mr Nath said while dis­cus­sions are still on go­ing, Seafood Plus has plans to ex­pand and open an­other out­let. He said at the mo­ment, busi­ness is still try­ing to set­tle down.

Cur­rent op­er­at­ing hours are Mon­day to Satur­day from 9am – 6pm.
