AVOID AT ALL COSTS; the place looks & feels old, but not in a good way. It's fairly cheap so I gave it a try as fish'n'chip outlets are not that common in the city. The chips were hard & had a synthetic oil taste, but worse than that the sausage I ordered was undercooked so I returned the lot. The older Mediterranean guy behind the counter who refused to give me a refund was rude & argumentative. Save your money & time, you're better off in McDonalds.

Once a fine fish and chip restaurant that could almost hold its head up with a real engish one(northern).
Now a third rate London dive that serves worse food than a Soho kebab shop and with less pride.
A once thriving and allways packed London landmark has been run down ande turned into a cheap and dirty fast food hole by a incompertant manager who just does not get what good fish and chips is all about.

Best Haddock and Chips in the South of England. Close your eyes as you are eating them and you could be in West Yorkshire.

Decent cup of tea too. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

What a utter disappointment Fryer's Delight was. I walked in the rain for a mile for this 'real' chippie. But when I opened my bag o' fish and chips, the chips were cooked in old oil and tasted like fair ground chips: slightly off and overcooked, and definately left on the side for a while.

The fish was ok, if I had eaten it when it had been cooked, but an hour later the fish had completely dried out. The mushy peas could save the day, you cant get them wrong can you? Humm they must be mushy not hard and yet anemic. I felt sick all afternoon.

What a shame that Fryer's Delight are not consistent. I wont be going back.

Fryer’s Delight certainly do what they say – if the diet’s on hold, head to Fryer’s Delight for deep-fried junk food covered in grease. Mmm….

Fryer's Delight is a good English Fish and Chip shop. I have been using this chip shop since I moved to London in 1988. I recommend the Cod and chips at Fryer's Delight. The Batter melts in your mouth and the chips are so fresh. There is a cafe area but you will be lucky to find a table at lunchtimes. It is often frequented by London cab drivers at night. Other fish such as haddock, plaice and rock are on the Fryer's Delight menu. There are also pies, chicken, saveloys and battered sausages as well as normal sausages. Try a freshly cut slice of Italian Bread. The only downside of the Fryer's Delight is that the shop is closed during the entire month of August. It is run by an Italian family who use this month for their holidays.

i've just had cod and chips here to take home and i have to say its the worst ever the batter on cod was so watery that when i unwrapped it all the paper bag stuck to the batter so i had to throw more than half of it away the chips were rock hard, i live very local to this place and would normally recommend it to anyone that asks but never again they've just lost my custom and probably anyone else i know when i tell them about this

goodbye fryers non delight
