Best Fish and Chips in London

Large arrow left

I know that's a bold statement to make, as there are hundreds of fish shops throughout London, but they all are typically heavy and very greasy. My sister and I wandered into Golden Hind in Marylebone after nixing other fine-dining options. There was a crowd, and Zagat, TripAdvisor, and TimeOut stickers on the door, so it couldn't be too bad. It turns out that the place has been around since 1918 and has had only a few owners in that time, mostly Greek and Italian immigrants. The cod had a nice thin layer of breading, extra crispy, that didn't come off in layers as you see at some restaurants. The portions were massive and I ate every last salty bite.
