Very 'basic' establishment, but food cooked fresh as ordered so don't be in a hurry! Fish very nice but 'chips' not up to scratch.

I really wanted to like this place. Neighborhood fixture, check. Friendly service, check. Freshly battered fish and onion rings, check. Reasonable prices, check. Unfortunately, the fish and rings were greasy, perhaps the result of too low a frying temperature, and could have used more seasoning. Fish pieces were small, so batter to fish ratio was too high. Pity. Wouldn't have... More

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

Oysters are one of my favorite food and they served up (on newspaper) the most succulent fried oysters I have ever had! and at a great price. just a couple of tables; mostly take out.

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
