As an American, this was the best fish & chips my family and I ever had. They also had a great list of gin, with cucumber tonic, absolutely delicious !!!!! I will recommend to those I know traveling to London and without a doubt come again.

We each chose basic fish and chips which was excellent . We had a bottle of the house wine but we’d recommend paying a bit more and having their Sauvignon blanc ( can’t remember its name) . Perfect for 2 guys before we went to watch a Spurs evening game . Staff were excellent and service was spot on . Perfect for a more upmarket fish and chips .

As an upmarket chippy the decor and ambience are still a bit chippy like, but none the worse for it. You go there to have chip shop fare and that’s what you get but it is very good of its genre and the service is excellent served with flare and some good humour by young people who look like they want to be there. It isn’t cheap (possibly because we had champagne with our fish and chips) but I think still excellent value for Mayfair and an excellent dining experience.

finishの衣はサクサクで重たくなく、ソースも3種類でお好みが見つかるはず、個人的にはカレーとタルタルが好きでした。Tipsは潰したポテトを揚げたものだと思いますが、ホクホクして美味しく、味付けは特にしていないと思うのでソースに付けて頂くと良いと思います。

Food under average, you can find much better fish and chips in London. Staff is friendly but the overall service is quite poor.
Do not return.

Our first time at this restaurant.
Very good service & food.
The only thing is I don’t think it was value for money. I would go back but not till the following year at Christmas when we go up town. It is to expensive to use regularly.
Great service.

The food is awesome but we will take out as it is so much cheaper than eating in. Hands down the best fish anywhere the food is exceptional and u do get what u pay for but £13 take out is reasonable but £26 to £50 is a bit steep when the only difference is 2 drinks which was a bottle of coke and a mocha the rest in eat in prices service charge. I cant say enough how good the food is and how good the staff are just for us builders it is an expensive lunch

It's good that the Chippy now takes reservations. It's hard to say that there are any "good" seats in this restaurant. Let's call it "artsy". Food is very fresh. I've been there twice and the service has always been attentive and friendly. Don't try to walk in. Get a reservation.

Delicious, lively venue, staff attentive and incredibly patient as always. Three stars simply because I like to dine here on my own and never get to get a table but a stool squeezed between two by the uncomfortable counter next to the entrance. Besides, it’s winter, cold and venue always packed as customers rather wait inside and there’s little room around the till.
The fact that some of us dine alone shouldn’t be an excuse not to be offered a better seat given that the bill is a ‘paint-point’ for everyone, regardless..... Thank you.

Really nice restaurant with fantastic staff. Food was excellent apart from the batter on both the crispy squid and the cod which should have been better than it was. Be aware that the prices are higher than those shown on the menu visible on OpenTable (This is something they really need to sort out)

We went for the first time with a friend visiting from the US. Was not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed our classic cod and chips. Staff were also accommodating with request to substitute for cheese truffle chips. We were less impressed by the wine. Not bad, just not good either. Left very full indeed.

Amazing fish & chips, but also the crab toast and the desserts were delicious. Service was perfect. Reservation is recommended because there are always people waiting outside.

Hands down the best F&C’s in London.
From top to bottom the quality of the ingredients and cooking set it apart from anywhere else.
Both the Cod & Haddock are the best I’ve ever had in a chippy, same for the chips/battered sausage and sauces.

Doesn’t really get much better.

Food was lovely however, I am coeliac and ordered the fried halloumi with chips and curry sauce. I Asked if they were cooked separately and all I was told was that they are gluten free which didn’t really answer my question. Later that evening I had severe tummy pain and sickness (all feelings I’ve had when I’ve been ‘glutened’).
I feel they maybe weren’t as careful as they should’ve been in the kitchen. A shame because the food was lovely and my boyfriend who isn’t coeliac really enjoyed it.

Tiny and narrow space, but in a cool neighborhood-like spot that's not far from shopping. A great place for a quick fish and chip and a drink for a SMALL group (2 - 3). Could be a quick place to grab a bite after work/school. Food was very good for the limited available menu. They know what they do, and do that well. Not much wrong with that.

Entertaining an Australian friend who has Coeliac disease. She requested traditional fish and chips in London but objc needed gluten free. Cant recommend Mayfair Chippy highly enough. The mushy pease are to die for. Batter light and chips delicious. Apparently the gluten free batter was also excellent.
