“Best fish and chips in Toronto”

Viking Fish & Chips
Ranked #2,708 of 10,303 Restaurants in Toronto

Restaurant details
Neighborhood: The Queensway
Description: We're a small family owned business in Toronto's lively west end. Viking has been around since 1952 and we take our fish and chips seriously. So much so that we've kept our recipe the same for over 50 years! We think we're the best fish and chips shop in Toronto but you'll have to decide for yourself.

Best fish and chips I have had in a while. The decor is great and the place is clean. Staff is friendly and the portions are big and more importantly very fresh. Great spot to try if you love fish and chips.

New management, fresh décor, the food is as good as and probably better than before. The old guy that sold it must feel good about their successful start. Try it, you won't be disappointed. Parking is good out front, across the road and behind, in the laneway. Again what impressed me the most was the cleanliness and freshness that prevails. Other restaurants in the are should take note!

First visit here this past week and all I can say is, amazing! The location is spotlessly clean, the staff are wonderful and friendly, the food is just perfect. Started with battered mushrooms and onions rings. The mushrooms were so good we ordered a second plate! Both my husband and I had the seafood platter which didn't disappoint either of us. 2 shrimp, 2 scallops, fish and large serving of chips with coleslaw. The batter is about as good as it gets, light and the chef knows how to cook it all to perfection.
Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food and the serving sizes. A great place to try and one of the loveliest fish and chip meals we've had in Toronto.

we have been eating at the Viking for over 25 years now . We live in Waterloo region but regularly drive to the Viking for lunch . It has always been well worth the drive. The food has always been superb, the atmosphere friendly and welcoming , and Ernie , the original owner is an expert at what he does. For some time now the location has been closed . On Saturday we took a chance and drove there for lunch. To our surprise, the restaurant has been sold and is now being operated by a delightful young man named Colin . When we told him we were long time customers, he assured us that he is keeping the Ernie recipes and techniques.
We ordered halibut and chips, and an order of fried shrimp. The food was freshly cooked, piping hot and perfect in every way . The halibut was firm and snow white . The batter light and crisply and perfectly cooked . The chips ( I'm English , they will always be chips ) we also perfectly cooked . Not a hint of grease anywhere . We had coffee and two pots of tea . The tea was made with boiling water and was also perfect . The shrimp were plump and sweet and perfectly cooked. The batter was light and crispy and they were delicious .
Colin is delightful, enthusiastic, and a perfectionist and dedicated to keeping the Viking the same wonderful destination it has been since the 1950's. Congratulations to you Colin and to your wife , for keeping the name and the quality. We wish you much success , and will continue our commute for what is without a doubt still the best fish and chips in Ontario .

not many of the old fish and chipperies left in the city. this one has been here since 1952
it has had a redecorating in recent memory. menu seems to have gone a little a la carte - at one time i think coleslaw came with dinner. i actually prefer coleslaw in little papw cups....if you areout this way and you want halibut and chips then come on in.
