Once again, a new Category. I do believe this might be the last one I add though.. I decided to create a Food Court category because it would not be fair to rate the Place as it is the Food Court not their place, and the Service as you only spend 2 minutes at the counter. I shall mainly review the experience and rate the food.
The first thing was, I have not had London Fish & Chips in a while so thought it would be around time. I ordered me their “Mayfair”. At the counter the staff were all polite and happy to serve. They provided a buzzer for when the food was ready.
The meal came with Chips (Fries for the rest of us), Soft Drink and a cup of fairly liquidy Tartar Sauce.
The Shrimp: First thing I realized was that there is a good amount of Shrimp, estimated around 8 Medium sized shrimps. They are fried well. They have no shell just the tail, and are coated in a crispy outer layer. They do taste rather oily and that is a bit off putting, but with a little lemon that goes away. I cannot eat the whole meal without lemon as the oil will really get to me. That is a slight downfall, the other one is that the Shrimp aren’t all deviened perfectly. They tasted well, especially with the sauce. If you like to dip in, one cup is definitely not enough. Ask for more, you’ll need it!
The Chips (Fries…): Lovely. They are hot, fried well and the insides are really soft. Also, plenty Fries to go with the Shrimp.
The tray came with a packet of Ketchup, a Salt Packet and Utensils. No Tissues though.
Value: Pretty Decent for Sea Food. The Mayfair meal was 34 Dhs. I asked for 2 extra Tartar Sauce and that was free. One thing interesting is their Bill. The meal is mentioned as 34 Dhs for the Shrimp Dish, and the drink is Free. No.. It is not free, it is 34 Dhs that includes the drink. I found that funny.
Verdict: I like their food, and this Mayfair Meal is nice. The Shrimp is nice, Fried well and there is plenty of Shrimp and Fries on the plate for one person. I just wish that the oily taste didn’t exist, but I do remind myself, these are deep fried.
The Food: 5.5 / 10
I’d recommend this place. If you feel like London style Fast-Food Sea-Food, London Fish & Chips is worth a try.
