Great fish, but the chips were... blonde - undercooked and soggy. ‘Average’ is a good précis. Price not too bad for this town.

I hate to throw coldness on the love fest, but my calamari was tasteless and, worst of all, soggy. In decades of eating calamari, this was the least successful. Edible, yes, but that’s not saying much.

One of the many food vans in Hirafu but not always open. I believe they open only when they have fresh fish. I’ve almost ordered everything on the menu and so far all of it is good. A good stop if you’re hungry for fish...and chips.More

The Flying Fish food truck provides good quality fish and chips. Food is cooked while you wait. French fries are fresh cut potatoes fried as you wait. The fish and calamari were lightly battered. All very good. In a town with very expensive restaurants, the...food truck is a great alternative.More

Food was pretty good and affordable (1000-1200yen per serving). The owner is a nice person and can communicate in English well. Do give this a try should you happen to chance upon it!

Very good Cod and Fish out of a food truck. Very friendly lady owner. Too bad we stumbled upon it on the last day of its operation for the season so won’t get a chance to try it again this trip.

Made for you while you wait! Super fresh and hot fish and chips. Owner is super friendly and very kind. She gave me extra fish, probably 2x the normal portion.

Omg if you want a deliciously naughty cheap dessert stop by this caravan for a deep fried snickers! They are amazing - I've only ever known the DF mars bar but snickers are wayyyy better! Mmmm

We have been going to Niseko for four years now. We love The Flying Fish, with the family favourite being calamari with sweet chilli sauce and chips with malt vinegar. They even got in rice flour to make the calamari and fish gluten free -...fantastic. A must try when visiting Niseko in the winter.More
