When I was in London in April I went back to this place because I had liked it the first time. I wasn't even in the neighbourhood but it was well worth going there. Excellent fish and chips, very fresh, very tasty!

Came to the restaurant following a friend's suggestion, and had the BEST Fish & Chips meal ever! I'll definitely come back there again next time I'm in London.

This popular fish 'n chips restaurant is on a quiet side street, just down the road from the very busy Oxford Circus. The fish was reasonably fresh, but the coating had a lot of retained oil on it from the frying process. As a result,...More
