Any idea why The Flying Fish became Fladda? Was it sold?

Bajanbelle, I hope you told them there and then. This is fair comment but I would like to think that pointing failings out to the person who could actually do something on the spot is better and fairer.

But they shouldn't be serving poor food in the first place ....

I also concur. Can't vouch for the fish - I've only ever had saveloy or sausage there - but Ken's do the best chips we've found around here.

I gather the previous owner retired.

I reckon I had the worst F & C at The Flying Fish

Stale oil, powdery chips and the old guy was testy

Maybe my bad luck, but still rubbish

Definitely bad luck because it was the best in the area, consistently, over several years until it closed recently. Te guy who ran it was never testy in the dozens of times I went there.

Fladda reopened last week and I can confirm that the fish and chips are excellent. Not at all soggy (the poster above must have visited when they had teething problems.) Good value and the best in the area; even better than The Flying Fish, which we have missed since it closed. Highly recommended.

Codfellas for me. Really good quality and the owner is always in there and is a really nice guy.

I need to try Rosie's again. Fairly sure the fish was frozen when it first opened. Not sure if it still is.

Resurrecting this thread to see where might be good for fish and chips these days?

messageRe: Fish and Chips - we miss Seacow
Posted by Loutwo August 01, 05:00PM

Roseís on East Dulwich Road is definitely one of the best IMHO, probably in all of inner south London. Good chunky chips, freshly cooked fish in a decent crispy batter and all served in a proper box so it remains crispy and nothing goes cold. Also, they do a great selection of pies too.

Another vote for Kenís - the only place we will go to now. My son , a lover of fish and chips, rates it a solid 10/10 - the only place he wonít have ketchup as, ĎItís so good, it doesnít need it!í

Never tried Kens. It is a 25 min walk each way. Hardly practical for me.

I Find Semas good. and just 2 mins walk each way. Large portions. Friendly staff.

Olleys is too expensive £13.00 - £15.00 for sit in Cod and Chips. #Joke

Tried Rose's when it first opened. Worst Fish I have ever eaten/ Left it. greasy soggy fish. Dreadfull Chips
Rude staff.

Cod Fellas Good Sit-in. Lovely Fish with a choice of oil or dripping. Lovely chips. Large portions Nice guy.

Rosie's in ED Road is great. Nice chips and friendly staff. We order for local meetings so,etimes and they are very accommodating.

They are really lovely people, but sadly the chips aren't lovely.

In my experience sad smiley

Yep, food is awful. i live about 1 minute walk away so wanted it to be really nice, but its not. Ordered curry sauce with my chips and his scruffy mate was summoned to make the curry sauce which he done by boiling a kettle and pouring it over some kind of powder and stirring it for a while. battered sausage was inedible. Shame, because they were friendly people.

I just have fish from Emily's, which is fine.

Another vote for Kenís. After reading the reviews on here, and the positive feedback online I went to get Cod and Chips last night. A decent, old fashioned, good quality fish and chip shop. Rare find in London, more like the fish and chips you would expect on the pier at the seaside. If youíve not been before, I would highly recommend.

I quite like that HR's in HH. I have to send Mrs B there because it's out of the bounds of ED so I can't go there.

Iím literally sat outside Semaís

Great chips, nice looking fish. Nice people 👍🏽

I find the Fish and Chips at Sema and Emilyís grim. None of my family can eat it. We take a trip to Kenís to pay a fortune for the fish and chips there. Still not the best compared to all the lovely fish and chips we consumed in Dorset but the best out of a bad bunch around here.

Anyone tried the fish and chips at Saucy on LL?

I don't think Ken's is expensive at all! under a tenner for a portion of cod and chips that in my experience easily feeds 2 people and sometimes 3 if you're not super hungry. The pieces of cod he serves up are enormous.

I didn't like Sea Cow. I ordered large haddock and chips once. Got home to discover 2 measly haddocks squashed together! Cheeky. Rosie's is pretty decent but again I ordered rock once and I noticed the fish smelled like ammonia so I couldn't eat it. I guess not that many people order the rock?

edit to say I've been to Rosie's loads and it's usually decent.

Chip shop curry sauce is always made from sort of powder/granules. Absolutely standard.

Saying that, I'm not a massive fan of Emily's either. Fish just not crispy enough.

Id kill for a black Pudding Supper. Just cant get them in England. A real loss for me. I did find a chippy doing battered hamburgers in my new town. A real bonus. Not a BP supper though.

Chippies are so different in Scotland.
