British Fish and Chips

liv Jul 16, 2005 09:25 PM

I passed by the British Fish and Chips place by Gerrad street today. Is it any good? I've been looking for a place in Toronto with the best fish and chips, preferably wrapped up in a newspaper, to give it a fun, authentic feel. Thank you.

      It's actually on Dundas just east of Coxwell (at the back of a building that fronts onto Coxwell). However, it has changed ownership since this thread was first posted three years ago. If you do a search, you'll find comments about how the quality has gone downhill since the change.

        British Fish and Chips is the best. There was a great place in the beach on Queen, but I forgot it's name and they changed owners so it's not as good.

        British has the freshest fish I've ever eaten at a F&C house.

        Their fish is nice. The halibut is not too greasy and not too much batter. The chips are great too.
        They give you enough chips for 3 people though so we usually order 1 order of F&C and one extra piece of fish.

            Head to B & B on Queen, just east of Pape. Really good, and yes, wrapped in a newspaper (albeit a chinese newspaper).

            Sorry, I haven't tried British Fish and Chips.

              British fish and chips are okay, nothing out of the ordinary. Personally I prefer Duckworths on the Danforth just past Main st. Not wrapped in newspaper, but crisp and not greasy, which is my preference.

                I'd have to agree with B & B. Really great prices something like 3 something for halibut (only type)and like 1.50 for chips? It's somewhere around the 4-5 dollar range for FnC. I usually go with friends and get 2 fish each and split the order of chips since the single order is fairly large. Their fish cakes and mushrooms aren't bad either!
