British Style Fish & Chips
British Style Fish & Chips at the corner of Coxwell and Dundas (the entrance is actually on Dundas) serves good ol' fashioned fish and chips. Options for the fryer include haddock, halibut, cod, clams, shrimp and scallops.

Just went there fish & chips we've ever had! The portions are large...keep in mind when ordering.

We'll definately go back. Next time phone first.

I had these f&c's just once, 1.5 years ago and I could vouch for their authenticity, perfect crunch and quality. Had I not moved west-end, which naturally deters a visit back, I'd be having them regularly and without any 'em.

this is a great place

Regretably, I was told a few months back that Ali has sold this place and it has gone down hill from was used to be GREAT fish & chips. I'll have to give it a try and judge the new owners products for myself. If it's not satisfactory, I'll have to continue the drive to Old York Fish & Chips up at 96 Laird Dr.

We got some the other night. It was a generous portion of halibut and the chips but cold. My daughter ordered onion rings and they were burnt. Didn't realise til I got home or would have given them back. Cost $31 for three orders of halibut and chips and an onion rings. No coleslaw included.

My advice? Go to a little Greek-owned shop that is just one block east of Woodbine on the Danforth. They have AWESOME fish and chips - excellent chips. And they are absolutely darling people who I love giving business to. Husband and wife team who work very hard. Their cole slaw is perfection too so make sure to get that as well. It's just a little hole in the wall but they do fish and chips justice.

Are you thicker than 2 short planks?

You order take out and whine because it's cold when you get it home.

What do you expect.

Griffin: Warm chips.

Thank you for the comments I have been tempted to try their fish and chips and I'm glad I read the comments before I waste my money. I would definitely try your suggestion queenie.

Never had a bad meal from this place. Generous portions of fish and they cut their fries fresh on-site. They also do a homemade coleslaw and tater sause which are both good. Also love the Stewarts pop they have.

I would not say this is the best fish & chips I've had but it is good and worth a visit if you're in the area.

Best fish and chips in Toronto. Very large and generous portions. No other fish and chips joint can compare. The other ones in Toronto have small fish and fries portions and are over priced. At British Style you get value for the money.

I bought chips here yesterday and was given a box of soggy, undercooked chips that tasted of fish. Horrible. Note to owner: when chips are still white, they are not cooked! I won't go back.

I usually liked this place but was disappointed to find out they use oil that has Trans-fat in it (bad news in this day and age), I will go back if they change to different oil.

I'm from northern England and have been trying fish and chips all across the GTA and suburbs. This is the first fish and chip shop I have tasted in Canada that actually tastes like the fish and chips back home. There just like the ones up the village in my old town! This is how proper fish and chips are supposed to taste. They smell right, taste right and are making me less home sick! Portions are almost proper and much larger than all the other rip off places in toronto. Here u get a good portion and value for money! I finally have a chippy again! Fridays have been returned to the best meal night of the week again! :) just wished they had mushy peas! Can't beat a
Pea mix!

They're just like the chippy back in Glasgow. (aye, but without the accent..)

large portions, with a choice of Haddock, whitefish or halibut.

The halibut is fresh and slightly chewy through the crispy beer batter.
Just like my Chippy doon the way back hame.

Pure Dead Brilliant!

I have been going to this shop through 2 operators and will continue to go back. We develop a like for F&C prepared in a certain way and this place does 'em the way I like them.
Chippie clearly is a competitor.

Unfortunately, the British Style Fish and Chips that Ali opened a decade ago then sold, is pretty much non-existent now. For the past few months we could not put our finger on what has happened to the best fish and chips in Toronto. Last night I placed our order personally and waited and observed.

Where once the piece of fish was a freshly cut, thick piece of Halibut, the owner now uses pre-cut, prepared halibut. The batter is the same, but the portion size is about 1/2 of what it was 5 years ago, and being a thinner piece of fish, it is no longer flaky and hold more grease. The french fries are now undercooked. Before they were soft in the middle and crisp on the outside. No longer.

At least I can have a little bit of comfort knowing that I can go to Ottawa and have the British Style Fish and Chips there. Ali has aged a bit, but the quality and portion size is as good as it has every been.

Living in the Beach as I do, I will now head to Oshawa to get my fish and chips. For a guilty pleasure it is very mush worth it.
