One of the best ever fish (and chips) I had in the world (perhaps 2nd after Blue Fin-Fish in Victoria, BC).

Nice place, always full but with very little wait in line as the turn over is fast and service very efficient (and familial -- you will recognize the mom and daughter... or are they sisters?).

Go for fish! again and again, huge portion, take more! I would go back for sure if I lived...more

Good spot for fish and chips. I went between haddock, cod, or the halibut and chose haddock based on recommendations from the server. Their speciality is the halibut but that tends to have a stronger taste.

The haddock was delicious, fried perfectly and very flakey. The chips are good as we'll, not greasy which is a huge plus coming from the US.

Dined for dinner and did not have to wait....more

A great place to eat at under £10!

A no nonsense fish and chips place with a variety of choices of fish including cod, skate, halibut (duh), haddock, and plaice.

The batter is really thin and light which does not interfere with the distinct taste of each type of fish.

It's a really simple plate of fish and chips that you should try if you are around the area.more

I had the Halibut and chips, and it was good. I felt like the Halibut was a bit dry, but it was kinda flakey. I smothered it with tarter sauce to get it a bit more moist. I had a bite of my friends grilled fish, and that was super moist and...more

Very near perfect fish and chips, served in a nice restaurant (or to take away while you wander around Westminster) is sometimes just what you need. They're happy to fry from fresh if you ask, and the chips are some of the best "chunky" - proper - ones around.

Friday is a very busy day, especially at lunch. On other days it's hard to not be tempted by the other food stalls lining Strutton...more
