        I agree with Moose and Jenii. Great fish 'n chips! I was introduced to the King's Head by an English boyfriend 27 years ago and I have been eating there ever since. He lived in Europe at the time, but traveled back and forth a lot. He said that in the US, the King's Head had the best!

          i went to the king's head this past weekend and the fish and chips were quite tasty. but only get the queen sized, the king is just too much fried food.

        I've had excellent fish 'n chips at Ireland's 32 in Van Nuys, and also at Irish Times on Motor in Palms. I can't say they were the *best*, but they were very good.

          I don't eat fish, but my husband is a Brit, and his favorite place to get fish n' chips is at Ye Olde King's Head in Santa Monica. The compliment I can add is that he sits right next to me eating it, and it doesn't smell fishy enough to drive me to the other side of the booth.

            I really like them at The Villiage Idiot. The fries are thin cut, which is inauthentic, (but really, really good. And I dont personally care for British style fries anyway. Too soggy for my taste) but the fish is really perfect. The batter is light and crunchy and the fish is flaky and moist.
