Uncut Seafood Deli is Sydney’s luxe new neighbourhood fish shop selling premium fish at market prices

Uncut Deli

Many of us don’t love a fish market, we value the variety and like to think its fresh, but they can be challenging to access, you need to be a morning person, can tolerate wet fishy floors and always feature limited parking as pricey as a lobster.

The menu

A neighbourhood fish market like the Uncut Seafood Deli is highly sought after. What is astounding is, while it looks like a boutique and lives on Bondi Road, the prices are at parity with the markets and the floor is dry. Winning and you’ve just walked in!

Jack (the shucker), Kaitlin (the chef) and Nic (the filleter) are siblings with seafood in their DNA. Their legacy extends across four generations, with this succession reinventing the fish shop. The trio exude infectious energy, impressive given their extremely early routine to curate the best local catch from Whole Barra, Snapper, Tiger Flathead, Octopus and Kingfish, chilling on ice with clear shiny eyes.


If you fancy outsourcing the cooking, dine from the fresh bar showcasing South Coast Sydney Rock Oysters shucked to order, sashimi or the grill searing up a range of fillets with luxe sides and house made sauces. The Raw Tuna Slaw, tuna sashimi nestled on a zesty, bitter and sweet coleslaw with an Asian dressing is a fresh and satisfying lunch.

The go-to dish however is the prawn focaccia. This is an epic sambo, a generous application of cultured salted butter, unapologetically big prawns, lathered in pink seafood sauce on a bed of super crisp iceberg lettuce served with salt & malt vinegar crisps. It’s generous and totally delicious. Move over AP Bakery THIS is the next destination focaccia.
