The oil used was old - it clearly had not been changed in quite a while, rendering the fish very tough. The texture of the chips was disappointing - soft and not at all palatable. This was the first time I'd tried Connaught as it seems to enjoy status as a local place to go for fish and chips. The... More

They don't make their own tartar sauce which is a let down. Also, the fish is so greasy that it left me feeling queasy. The chips were OK. It is a nice place to sit and eat and look out the window at the train tracks.

I come here all the time. The food is great, particularly the haddock and bacon cheeseburgers. Reasonable prices and quick, friendly service. I'd definitely recommend it

Visited to order take-out on a busy Friday evening. Haven't been there for many years, so thought we would try it again. The decor hasn't changed in all that time..! Ordered haddock and chips. The fish itself was tasty but the batter was just ordinary, and the fries were undercooked. Maybe this is not the norm; but, for us, we... More

My boyfriend and I pass this restaurant almost everyday and finally decided to try it. Very disappointed, the batter definitely out-did the fish, not worth the $.

My husband and I all love this restaurant. 我們都很喜歡這家餐廳,每次只要想到吃fish and chips就一定會去這家!他家的Hamburger也很好吃~ 我和老公每次都有買魚和炸薯條,外加漢堡回去吃。不過每次都是外帶,沒試過在店裡吃~

Love the fish and chips. The fries are the best! Great coleslaw. Eat in or take out. Have both the oil and the creamy coleslaw. Lots of other choices. Great pictures on the walls to keep you entertained until food is ready. Great neighbourhood shop, and great to take out and eat in Gage Park!

First of all, this place has been in business since the stone ages, and it looks like it might have been that long since they decorated. So, don't expect much if you choose to stay for your meal. Of course, this won't be an issue if you decide to take the food to go. Good luck finding parking in either... More

the fish was so thin, batter was all it was about for $14.05 for one order....parking was poor to get in and out of. They charge extra for tartar sauce if you want more than 2 packets. Very sad when you look forward to a good meal and end up with all batter and the skinniest piece of fish. I... More

Really classic fish and chips. Eat in or take out, it’s a great treat. Sometimes just the chips, I admit it!
