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.

The best fish and chips in London
The Golden Hind in my opinion is the best fish and chips in London! This place does the batter crispy and light that isn't heavy battered. The fish is fluffy and pillowy soft. The chips are nicely salted and the peas can either be ordered mushy or regular. I've ordered here twice. The first time, there was such a big crowd so I took my fish and chips to go and ate it outside. The second time, it wasn't crowded because it was a between meal time. I ordered fish and peas. The portions sizes are really big and I couldn't finish everything. Its definitely worth it to come here for fish and chips.
