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.
Excellent fish and chips with friendly and relaxed service in an old-school restaurant. The ‘refillable’ chips is a great offer — in theory! We couldn’t manage more than one portion!
The food was fabulous, grilled plaice and lovely chips. There was a great buzz as it was so busy. We will definitely be back. Staff were lovely too.
Always visit for every trip to London; amazing fish, extremely nice staff great place. Many visits over the past 20 years, always delicious. Great place.
Great recommendation by the staff to opt for the Grilled Seabass. Fish was tender and filling. My friend had the fish and chips and enjoyed it very much.
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.
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.
Excellent service at this top quality fish and chip restaurant - far more than just the traditional fish and chips. Highly recommended for a chance to try a great British tradition, but with other options as well.
This is consistently the best place for fish and chips in London. The staff are friendly and the environment welcoming. I've been coming to this place since 1990 and have never been disappointed.
