Dirty little place with no atmosphere, no charm, no frills. Handwritten signs warning of a charge for tartar sauce. Really? You're going to charge for it? The fish was OK, that was it. Unflavorful, boring batter. The fries were undercooked. It was a horrible experience. The only good thing I can say about it was that the woman who worked... More

It wasn't fancy, just a solid serving of fresh fish and a mess of chips. Getting my meal as a take away allowed me to head across the street to enjoy a pint and watch the Argentina v Chile Copa America match. The store front doesn't look like much, but the owners are friendly and the food was delicious!

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

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood 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.
