This is the place to go when you're craving fish 'n chips! It's hard to find good fish n chips or even good fried fish in NYC, but this is the exception and it's exceptional. Fish is fresh, crispy, not greasy and better than I've had in a London fish n chips shop. Fried shrimp are also great! The tartar sauce is excellent and beyond what you'd expect. Dining area is just a bar and stools, wish there were tables. Best fried fish (and shrimp) in NYC!

Ordered takeout from here a couple of years ago and was appalled at the limp 'chips' and soggy battered fish. Memory is a cruel mistress. The other night I had another craving for Old Blighty food and in particular, battered sausage and chips and ordered again. How they have survived I have no idea. I was really hungry and would have eaten 'a scabby horse' but even I could not stomach the cold, uninspiring old chips and overcooked (nearly naked of batter) sausage. Please do the wonderful West Village a favor and take you business elsewhere. let a business that appreciates it's customers take over the space.

I really wanted to like this place. The food is okay, but an ordering experience really put off me off to how poorly the place is run, and the poor customer service they have. After my 60 min wait time, it never came. After a few phone calls I was told "someone would call me back," which, of course, never happened. I ended up sending an email about it and this was their response: "We looked into this and we can find no reason why a delivery to an address so near to us would have taken so long particularly when it was a relatively quiet business day for us. We can only suggest that perhaps you were distracted and that your wait was not as long as you originally thought. Please do take it up with Seamless Web if you feel it necessary." I mean, it's $12--I don't need it, and it's not a big deal. My issue is with them being poor at customer service and not even acknowledging there was a problem. Them assuming that I was "distracted" is really hilarious; really? If I'm going to get treated like crap, I might as well go somewhere else and at least get better food.

I don't get why this place is so expensive, its not as though the ingredients are flown in from the UK, the sausages are locally made and they're supposedly local potatoes? It appears the sausages aren't even fresh, like they're half cooked, so they taste odd when they're fully cooked. I would rather wait for it cooked fresh and have the quality than the dross these clowns serve. Don't get me wrong, but this place used to serve good fish and chips, but these days the quality has gone way down hill, sort it out!!!

I lived in London and have had fish n chips all over the UK. Ate hear today with Welsh friend and we both thought it was delicious and authentic. Fresh, flaky fish in a perfect crispy batter, accompanied by gourmet tartar sauce and real chips. Shrimps were also fried perfection. Go at lunch time when the fryer is hot, the fish is crispy and the food is moving. Loved it! For those who complain about the price, you get what you pay for: quality!

Completely overpriced! I ordered a large portion of fish - I'd hate to see the small portion for what you're paying. I've had better fish and chips in random pubs around New York. They could at least do beer battered fish. My fish was soggy and falling apart. The gravy was watery. However, the tartare sauce was delicious. Those that give this place 5 stars for food quality, really don't know any better. A Salt & Battery proves that English food really isn't all that great.
