The Picadilly doesn't look too good from the outside but don't let that put you off, this is truly the best hidden gem I've ever found! The chips were cooked to perfection, he even does scraps or batter bits or whatever you want to call them, the fish is an excellent white and it may not be quite the same... More

Looks grubby but smells awesome. I first popped in after a few scoops over the road at McTeagues Saloon. The reason it tastes so good is that it has a proper double tank, deep fish and chip range like you find back home. I visited three nights on the bounce having fish bites and chips each time. Cracking batter, great... More

Located in a row of shops isn't a problem for a fish and chip shop---I am from the UK and that's where they are generally located. Authentic feel and deep fryers bode well. What isn't so good is the incredibly small pieces of (cod??) fish. The Asian guy who runs the place speaks no English except he knows the words... More

Standard fish & chips was fresh, authentic (wrapped in newspaper) and quite good for the genre. Most-importantly: I suffered no indigestion. Yes there is a fry-oil scent in the air. Yes the place is nothing to look at. A sign states that this is a cash-only establishment. But the fish was crisp & light, and not oily. A lot of... More

I was excited. A local, who is a client, told my coworker this is a must. The best fish and chips in the bay Area. I was expecting a half decent place. Turned up and saw a small, scruffy, carry out establishment with a few tables. It was empty and the owners barely spoke any English. Portions small, fish not... More

If you like your fish with a really thick and greasy coating, this is the place for you.

You can smell the unchanged fryolator grease 2 blocks away. The place looks filthy inside and the food doesn't look much better. It was so unappetizing I left and never ordered.
