So good! I am not usually a fish and chips person but I was craving it for some reason . My friend ordered the classic vegan and I ordered the classic gluten free cod and chips ....amazing!! A bit pricey but worth it and very large portion. Tartar sauce was so good that I forgot to even try the other sauces! Thank you for not forgetting about us gluten free people :)

The Mayfair Chippy is an absolute Institution when it comes to fish and chips - both the Mayfair Classic and simply cod with chips were outstanding, as was Fentimans Victorian Lemonade… all rounded up by the super-friendly and very attentive service of Stalica. We will come back !

The Mayfair restaurant seems small but has space inside. It looks cool too, modern but not too stylish. I visited several Fish&Chips restaurants in London over the years but most now serve very bland fish and chips. Here the fish has taste as the fries are great too!

The food was good, a bit expensive for fried fish... The service was not very attentive. Too many tourists? One table after the other... a bit like on an assembly line ?.... After the meal I asked for a fresh mint tea that never arrived. We were tired, we paid (after having checked the tea was not on the bill) and left.

Lieu sympathique dans un quartier tout aussi sympathique.
La nourriture était excellente et le personnel très gentil et attentionné.
Une ambiance différentes de ce à quoi nous sommes habitués en temps normal, où simplicité rejoint convivialité.
Nous avons passé un excellent moment.

My friend n I really enjoyed our dinner at the restaurant. The staff were friendly and we loved the restaurant.
We had the salt n pepper squid starter which was excellent, the best we ever tasted.
The fish was very tasty too. It was fresh and well done. We will probably have to go back again for the grilled fish. Overall it was a very enjoyable dinner

The food was scrumptious, we had to sit very close to the other tables. The service started off super but as they got progressively busier we were forgotten about.

The Mayfair Chippy is one of my go-to restaurants when I’m in London, specifically for fish and chips. It routinely gets a Michelin Guide mention...for good reason...the food is excellent. The service is very friendly. Best to get a reservation since it’s a popular place.

The food was lovely, well presented and hot, it's a good old fashioned fish and chips restaurant.

The photos on the website must be few years old as it's looking a little worn but dont let that put you off.

The service charge was a bit frustrating but I would of left a tip anyway but watch out you dont get caught out and tip twice.

Make sure you book we seen a number of people turned away because they were full.

We had such a wonderful lunch at the Mayfair chippy, we decided to go back the following day with some family and friends. The oysters were fantastic! So was the crab on toast, but I believe the overall winner was the Mayfair special, cooked and served to perfection with chips, mushy peas, curry sauce and tartare sauce! Delicious:)

I arrived at 8.30 on Sunday evening, and was promptly shown to a seat less than 30cm from the entrance door! As this was a particularly busy restaurant, I had people standing in a line beside me for most of the evening.
Anyway, the staff were polite and friendly so this more than made up for the disappointment of my table location.
I ordered the black pudding fritters with apple sauce, which were superb. They were crispy on the outside and well cooked in the middle, and I would recommend them to anyone visiting this restaurant. My main course was fried haddock and chips. The chips were really good, however, the fish batter was a touch soggy when cutting it. The flavour of the actual fish was excellent.
All in all, I had an enjoyable meal in this exceptionally busy restaurant situated in the centre of this easily accessible street. Parking is limited due to the spaces being reserved for permit holders only. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys the good British dish of fish & chips.

Delicious traditional fish and chips, with great starters. Good selection of traditional British classics and other less traditional but tasty items! Very good service. Busy and noisy at peak times with long queues, so plan and book ahead.

We ordered: Sourdough bread, fried squid, crab salad, Mayfair classic (Fish, Chips + all the trimmings)

Pros: The Fish and Chips is unsurprisingly excellent, and the option to have all three (tartare, mushy peas and curry sauce) leaves you spoilt for choice. The bread is also light and tasty.

Comments: The batter was a little too thick all round for my taste but this is just preference. In regards to the salad, scoops of crab are served with other thick sauces (avocado and apple?) with a small scattering of leaves. This made the dish too heavy as a whole, resembling more a selection of dips rather than a salad.
