A certifiable landmark in London, the North Sea Fish Restaurant’s Leigh Street location south of King’s Cross is immediately recognisable for the huge number of black cabs parked outside – this seafood restaurant offers a discount to taxi drivers! Needless to say, visitors to London can simply hop in a cab and say ‘North Sea Fish Restaurant’ safe in the knowledge that The Knowledge encompasses this famous foodie destination. Inside, find a menu packed with cod, coal fish, haddock, whiting, plaice, sole, dab, turbot, brill, herring, sprat, Norway pout, lesser sandeel and mackerel – classic fodder from, yep, the North Sea.
We had a lovely meal. The food is very fresh, and the fish is delicious. We explored the menu a bit -- the fishcakes are a nice change from fish & chips!
Great place! Take away on one side and a small sit down area on the other! I am an American so for me this was the best fish I have ever had. It was clean friendly and nice also you can have as many chips as you can eat!!!
The staff and service were just great - they catered for my grand-daughter’s special diet very helpfully and positively. I strongly recommend it to all. GD
Food and service are excellent. A bit noisy when the Restaurant is full. Best to book if you want to be sure of a table.
Fabulous fish and chips; the rock eel or huss is not widely available and underrated but this was a superb example really fresh and moist. The large portion took some eating. The medium haddock was also a generous portion and perfectly cooked. Lovely chips and good mushy peas. Restaurant prices were fine given the size and quality of the fish and endless supply of chips although the portion supplied was more than adequate for us; the mushy peas were perhaps a little overpriced.
This place is not one that you would necessarily come across on a random walk through the common areas that tourists tend to visit while in London. It's well worth planning for a dinner night out at North Sea Fish Restaurant for some super good, authentic fish and chips!
Food excellent, service excellent and great value for money. Portions are generous and I am thankful the waitress advised me to settle for the medium battered cod as with all the side orders the large would have been too much. The unlimited chips did not look that fantastic on appearance but tasted wonderful. I have not stopped raving about this restaurant all Easter weekend and willl he visiting again very soon.
We went the sit down restaurant, and ordered fish and chips. It tended to be an older clientele...later a few younger clients arrived....The crispy battered real fish fillets were very large portions... a jumbo portion easily was more than enough for my wife and 13 yr old daughter....the chips seemed average, the battered fish was a little on thicker and oily side than we prefer, and the fish was moist and tender. Served with basic Heinz ketchup (blah), tartar sauce and vinegar...Overall good value for the quality and size of the fish.
Superb fried fish. We all had different - rock, skate, halibut and cod and all were very happy bunnies. Chips good but mine were a bit scratchy but that was how my friend loved them. I dropped my wally otherwise I would have given 6. Best fish and chips in town.
One of the best places in London for old time fish and chips -- we had tasty cod and chips and very tasty haddock and chips, and shared a petit pois. The accompanying Australian wine was very nice.
