This “relaxed” chippy in a “lovely location by Brockwell Park” provides a “great range of fish and a variety of ways to cook it” – fried, grilled or steamed with various garnishes. Harry Niazi has run it for 35 years, garnering a strong reputation in Herne Hill and beyond.

“Generous portions of consistently excellent fish ’n’ chips” have made Harry Niazi’s “friendly” rustic chippie a fixture opposite Brockwell Park since 1987. It inspired the odd ‘off’ report in the last survey, though: “supposedly the best chippy in the area, but we found it a huge let-down”.

“The batter is light and complements the fish well” at this thirty-year-old venue opposite Brockwell Park, themed 1980s-style with Olde Worlde flourishes. There are cheaper chippies to be found, but regulars say it “never fails to provide excellent, well-cooked fish ’n’ chips”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
