    This place is GREAT. The fish and chips here are awesome. Def come here over the pubs that advertise fish & chips. Warning that the portion sizes are humongous.

    Words can’t describe how much I love this place. The owner is just precious, the space feels nice and tidy, but most importantly… They have the best, the greatest and the most delicious fish & chips!

    Wow! Good and fast service. American ambient and minimalist dinning area. Emphasis on the takeaway service. Big enough the small cod for me. It's worth for your first fish&chips experience.

    Some people can claim that this is the best chippy in Soho; however, that is too smaller area: best chippy in the West End. Fish is fresh and prepared to order, staff and friendly, atmosphere is cool.

    We all tried a different fish and they were all superbly fresh, light, and delicious! The portions are huge! Share one and a scoop of chips with a friend.

    Get the large size as it is not much bigger than the small. Must get the homemade tartar sauce. Skip the gravy. Fish and chips weren't greasy. Very good!

    Delicious, tender, juicy, worth every penny. Portions are generous. Try the Haddock and their special Tartar sauce

    Fresh fish, great chips and tasty mushy peas! You have to pay a little extra for the home-made tartar sauce, but it’s definitely worth it!

    Now that the Berwick Street chip shop has gone, this is the last (and best) place in Soho for fish and chips!

    Not the cheapest but if you go for normal instead of large (its really large) then it's not so bad. Nice chips and mushy peas. Excellent fish.

    The fish bites had two fishes which was a great way to try for a pair of small eaters.

    Hidden gem in central London for fish n chips. Go for the small portion, plenty of food for a growing boy!

    Eat in or take away, it's the best chippy in central London. Authentic chip shop atmos, good food and service.

    Great service with a smile, reasonable fish, and poor chips. Quite expensive for what you get in the restaurant. Nowhere near the quality or value for money of Poppies Spittalfields

    Decent fish and chip restaurant but no way is it the best by any means. The rock was tiny and the chips was tasteless as was the 'famous' tartare sauce. Seafish in Islington upper st is much better!

    Didn't live up to the hype, I'm just not a fan of overly crispy chips. It's a bit overpriced for what it is, worse the service wasn't great, took an age to order though quiet and not well attended to.

    I don't know if it's just me, however this place did not live up to it's reputation. Fish and Chips were ok.. but not anything different to what you would get from a Chippy in the outskirts of London.

    Kept waiting in a queue even though tables were empty in the room. Service charge added to bill. A bit pricey when all the little sides get added.

    Nice chunky vegetarian pie containing veggie sausages. Good battered halloumi for vegetarians who want to get closer to the fish and chips experience. Great homemade mushy peas.
