About Zoola Fish

With a mission to turn the UK into a nation full of fit feet, the Zoola Fish concept was born. By using the latest ‘fin-omenon’, fish pedicures, we want people the width and breadth of the country to have baby soft feet. Think Andrex and Johnsons Baby Lotion adverts. Mmmm, dreamy.

If you’re not up to speed, fish pedicures are the latest and greatest pedicure and relaxation technique to hit the UK and Zoola Fish were the first offer it. We use hundreds of toothless Garra Rufa fish that gently suck and nibble away dead skin whilst creating a light and relaxing massage.

Since February, over 10,000 people have dipped their feet into a world of wonder at our fish spa’s in London and we want this trend to spread nationwide as we open more spas. When will you take the plunge?

Our Fish

To help with our mission is our team of trusty Garra Rufa fish, always at the ready for whatever feet are dipped their way. They will gently suck and nibble away at your dead skin (we’d rather them than us) leaving feet feeling soft, smooth and revitalised.

Originally from the hot springs and river basins of the Middle East, they’re acclimatising well to London life and love meeting new feet everyday. Toby, who is a favourite of ours, is particularly sociable and will never fail to tuck-in to your toes.

Garra Rufa just like ours have been used for centuries to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema and their exfoliating abilities are now widely used across the Far East for fish pedicures and fish massage.

They require water temperatures of around 35c so your feet are sure to receive a warm welcome. What’s more, they’re known to secrete Diathanol, which is said to encourage skin regeneration.

The Fish spa place is good fun. you feel a bit like a tourist attraction as it is all open to passers by. the fish manicure is a bit tickly but your feet feel soft and supple after.

I have had a few fish pedicures before. Two at this franchise. I think by now the novelty had really worn off.
The staff are perfectly nice but the level of knowledge is not what it should be. The whole thing feels a little haphazard and ill-thought through. No-one's feet are vetted for signs of things like athletes foot or other nasties.
I am quite used to the tickly feeling of the fish now. It is quite pleasant and they do take the hard skin off the feet but to see any real beenfit that one would be genuinely pleased with, I think you'd need to invest in longer sessions over a period of time.

Being gawped at and paped by the tourists wears thin too.

Hmmmm Ok this fish pedi thing is probably a fad that's going to blow over, sadly. It's a sweet experience and I would probably call it relaxing too - if it weren't for the swarms of screaming kids messing about and not being controlled by their parents - or the staff. Can't say may feet were any smoother or softer either. Aw but the fishies are adorable. And the spot was nice and clean and I was offered a fresh towel to wipe my feet before and after.

Probably the cheapest place in London to get a fish pedicure and great for first timers who want to try it out . It's fun and it gets you chatting to strangers sat next to you as well as other onlookers. My feet definitely felt softer afterwards.

Don't book it expecting a relaxing spa like experience. It's busy, noisy and more like sitting in a bustling cafe then a quiet sanctuary! Having said that, it's fun but probably worth going with a friend than on your own.

it was a very good deal! I would definitely consider going to fish pedicure again. Staff were nice and friendly, so the whole experience was really enjoyable. It was so funny to see fishes peeling the dead skin :)

I found the facilities and ambience to be quite average and plain, I have been to nicer fish pedicure type salons who charge a similar price and possibly a bit more. Overall I was happy with my experience, the staff were pleasant and nice which is what created the experience. This was my first fish pedicure so the pleasant staff and hospitality was reassuring. I was satisfied with my experience, but more so satisfied with the value for money.

Was really nice; but very 'plastic' and not like the plush ones in the city. However the young girl working was very nice and had to tollerate a lot of people trying to sneek their hands in. All in all not bad for the price but there are nicer ones where you wont end up in a lot of tourists photos.

This fish pedicure shop is much better than most i ever went to - including Thailand. The ambience is nice and there's a good atmosphere. It's perfect for a nice day out, some beauty, wine and dine after. I would recommend this place.

There's a lot of hype around this and it's good fun. Strange but it worked for me even though I could barely keep my feet still. Nice girlie thing to do and i would recommend it. I think you should do it rgeularly to get the most out of it.

It a really cool setting in Camden, other people could use the same 'fishpond' as you but it wasn't too busy as we went mid week.

The fish did feel quite weird on your feet but it was quite relaxing and I would say that 30minutes is the right amount of time. I feel that it did work quite well and my feet felt nice after, I may advise that you soak your feet before you go to have this treatment done so that the skin on your feet softens first.

Both myself and my boyfriend really enjoyed this and loved the location. Well worth £9 that we paid.

The experience is something you've never experienced before and definately worth a visit. The staff were very friendly and helpuful when explaining what the fish do and the conditions in which they are kept.

I am a fan of fish pedicures. Some find it too tickly but I find it very soothing. However, I would not visit here again as the venue is far from relaxing! It is a very crowded tourist destination so you feel like you are part of the attraction!

Fish pedicure was good - feet were smooth afterwards, bit difficult to find.

Didn't like sittng in the middle of the market with everyone walking past taking photos. But not too bad for the price.

I really enjoyed the sensation of fish nibbling at my toes. It wasn't tickly, just odd and it did leave my feet feeling very smooth and pampered. My main reason for not rating the experience higher is that the venue was very basic - just a couple of tanks in a stall and so there was no sense of relaxation. It was good value though and I would certainly reccommend Zoola Fish to tired out shoppers in need of a little foot care!

First time I ever had a fish pedicure and it was certainly something to remember! I'll see how I get on with my feet over the next few days but they feel fresher. I went with a friend and we certainly enjoyed ourselves.

This is quite a basic fish pedicure compared to the others that I have seen. Location and the environment of the pedicure is not as nice as others. Experience is great. If you have never had this done before I would definitley recommend it.

the venue is very open, on the edge of the market, which meant that everyone walking by could see! It was a lovely sunny day though so it was nice to have sunshine and fresh air. There wasn't and 'luxury' feel to the venue, but it was clean and funky and fun.
The fish pedicure was fun and different but didn't really make our feet feel much softer. I would recommend this as a fun thing to do, but not if you're actually looking for a decent 'pre holiday' pedicure!!

It was good to try it out or as a top up treatment but if you're buying as a gift i think it would be better to go to a more upmarket venue as it's very basic and just does the job. The lady in there was very nice and informative and the facilities were clean.
