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.
This is a highly original restaurant which features old fashioned fish and chips. The quality of the fish is tops. You can tell it is very fresh. The choice of fish is also excellent. I had plaice on the bone which is very hard to find in London restaurants. Chips are hand cut and made. This is a haunt of taxi drivers and people in the know. I loved it.
Really beautifully cooked halibut and chips. A cafe ambience, clean and efficient. Worth a visit if you enjoy fish, but book as gets busy. A selection of well cooked vegetables for side dishes.
Very friendly and efficient staff. The cod and chips was amazing but my grilled halibut was truly out of this world, my complete to the chef for cooking such a fresh fish to perfection. All washed down with a very pleasant house withe. Perfect
