Bad fish and chips, was much better under old management. First off, the bag that was delivered in smelt like a fish market which wasn't a good sign. Inside, the pieces of fish looked dry and tired. They tasted bad too, texture was chewy, like it had been frozen. The picture tries to show how dry it was. The worst part is they charge 17 pounds per cod on deliveroo. Never again.
Dropped off our daughter nearby and looked for somewhere to eat on a Sunday evening … Fish n Flame sounded good for two pescatarians and the food on the website looked good too … popped into the takeaway side at first then back out and into the restaurant… it was quiet at 8pm, we were the only diners… but we hadn’t eaten out for a few months so we’re looking forward to it. The service was polite and friendly. I had the fish goujon burger which came with salad and chips and mushy peas and a sauce on the side … delicious. My partner ordered the salmon and out came sea bass … so it was offered at the same price with apology or we could have waited … we snapped it up and it was large and beautiful looking when it came out. I had a cappuccino after, no decaf so I’ll probably sleep even worse than the last few nights since the horrific events in Israel and Gaza Partner opted for a ginger green tea … The venue is clean and smart enough, pretty even with its hint of soft orange brightening up the sophisticated greys Music in the background at just the right level, even for my partial deafness … What’s that dear? Oh right, time to go!
Great music. Comfy atmosphere. We ordered fish cake starter, cod fish and chips and also I was about to get the chicken burger but instead was recommended their chicken kebab so gave that a try and that was most definitely worth it. unique flavours with vermicelli rice. the cod fish itself was very fluffy in texture, coated with good batter. the service is immaculate. attentive, friendly and hospitable. I'd recommend this place as a must visit!
So, we wanted to check out the new ownership and try the new menu. We decided to go for the roast chicken and chips. The chips are still on point, but the roast chicken was gross. Clearly, they part cook the chicken and then deep fat fry it!!!! Honestly not too sure how this can be called roast chicken, but I would advise my East Finchley neighbours to avoid it at all costs. We had to throw it as it tasted so bad and was super dry. Stick to what the previous owners did well... Fish and Chips
I cannot thank the staff enough for the wonderful dinner and helping my daughter with her injured foot (not from the restaurant). We came in and she was in period but we were hungry and the staff came to help her and helped us make sure she got to the hospital. Thank you for everything and the food was delicious!!
