Good food, paying for quality, great to order in. Deep fried beets and the mars bar is excellent.

I have been to A Salt and Battery amny times and I got to say that the food is great. I am originally from the UK and I grew up eating fish and chips. The salt and battery really know how to make the food the proper Bristish way.

I am a huge fish and chips fan and I have to say that this place had the best I tried so far. My boyfriend and I ordered the fish (cod) and shrimp combo and they ROCKED!!! We are definitely going back to try haddock instead of cod. We finished it off with deep fried Mars bar and next time we are gonna try deep fried Lion bar (which sounded lot like Whatchamacallit, my favorite candy bar).

My 67 year old mom and I walked from SoHo to find this place. I was determined to try it after seeing Rachel Ray's $40/day feature on it. I was a bit surprised to see that it was such a small eat-in/take-out place with a few stools to a narrow wall counter to sit at and either look out the window or at the wall. Nonetheless the food was really good. Nice & HOT right out of the grease, YUM!! We didn't have the fries or the deep-fried candy bars (next time for sure) but we did have the cod with onion rings. Mom was pleased and so was I. It was also really cool to talk to the Brits and listen to British radio. Makes me want to visit England even more now.

Great fish and chips. I head to this place everytime I'm in the city. The fish is always piping hot and fresh, and the chips are authentic and perfect (and yes, that means "soggy" as some have complained about. That is the traditional English style. If you don't want them that way, don't eat an English restaurant!). Personally, I prefer the large cut, and "soft" chips over the crunchy, shoestring variety that most of America loves. The Cod is excellent, and as far as cost goes, you have the choice of a small or large portion. The one piece small portion was plenty for me though, and well worth the price. Also, we had a fried Toffee Crisp candy bar for dessert that was heavenly. And the waitress was awesome. Great British atmosphere and staff. And I loved the fact that they play "BBC Radio 1" on the stereo (a personal favorite of mine). Anyway, if you are looking for a great, authentic British fish and chips shop, this place is a must. And if you are an Anglophile, like myself, it can't be beat. As I said, it's at the top of my list of restaurants when I'm in town.

When they first opened i used to frequent at least weekly for quite a long spell...loved the soggy fries and the generous fish portions...but they've since reduced the fish portion sizes AND increased the prices... And something else, too - i'm not sure if they changed the oil they use or what (or not frequently enough), or maybe the ingredients in the batter, their food no longer agreed with my system. But the service is great!

I go at least once a week to fulfill my fried haddock craving...their fish is the FRESHEST i've had in any of the city's chip shops/English pubs etc. The fish is crisp and hot right out of the fryer and buttery within. The chips are properly soggy. The fried Mars bar is OUT OF THIS WORLD! I wish it would stay open later than 1030pm....but the East Village location does stay open later and I'm willing to jaunt over to get my fix after a night out. You will love the atmosphere. Get over the prices - the quality of the fish makes it totally worth it and it's not that bloody expensive anyway!
