There’s nothing like driving up the coast and stopping into one of the many cliff-side seafood shacks for some delicious fish and chips or crab cakes. But if you don’t have time to drive all the way to Malibu, then look no further than Pasadena’s own Nikka Fish & Grill for all of your crustacean cravings. With a menu to satisfy even Poseidon’s largest appetite you will definitely find a new favorite to go back to whenever you’re in the mood for seafood.

Let’s start at the beginning and dive into the amazing-sounding array of appetizers. There is definitely a starter for any taste on the menu. You can stick with something simple like a shrimp cocktail or oysters on the half-shell. Or take a walk on the wild side and expand your taste buds by ordering seaweed salad or salmon carpaccio. With appetizer prices starting at only $5.95 you will be tempted to order more than one.

If a savory soup sounds good to you then try either the Clam Chowder or Seafood Symphony. If you are looking for fresher lighter fare, sink your fork into one of their many salads. A simple house salad may be all you desire however if you are in the mood for something a little more substantial then you may want to try the Crab Dungeness Salad.

If you are visiting for lunch then a delicious sandwich may be right up your alley. Burgers and fish sandwiches rule the menu in this category. Ok with falling off the diet wagon for the day? Then a indulge in something fried. Everything from fish and chips to a seafood combo to red snapper are available for you to enjoy.

When it comes time to dine on a delicious dinner the possibilities will be hard to choose from. You can never go wrong with steak and lobster. In fact, you can only go right with a delicious duo like that.

Daily Fish Specials will offer choices such as wild ahi, Chilean sea bass, or farm raised salmon. Take a moment to check out the House Favorites section of the menu. Grilled Lobster Langostino Tacos may just be the star of your night. Each evening offers a delicious Chef’s Selection that will delight and amaze every single one one of your taste buds. Landlubbers take heart because you can order non seafood items as well.

As the evening is winding down you may decide you would like a smooth glass of wine or a silky dessert. You may not be able to choose just one. A large selection of wine is available to be matched to any entrée you choose and when dessert comes around you will have several choices. A full bar is also available.
