Best Fish And Chips In Bangkok?

Recommended Posts

Longing for some real English style fish and chips with malt vinegar, pickled onion and lots of chips! Where is best in Bkk? Previous thread had lots of recs for Oh My Cod so guessing this is also a great fish and chipper.

What do you say guys?

I've been to Oh My Cod a couple of times based on recommendations here. Thought that it was excellent but I'm no expert

I had an English friend a few years ago who said he liked OffShore on Sukhumvit Soi 23, near Soi Cowboy. He used to say their fish and chips was better than he got in London!

I only had fish and chips at Oh My Cod one time, great Mushy Peas. Usually go for the pies. They were very good. Says on the website they are a member of the fish and chip federation or something in the UK.

With regard to the Offshore... it is disgusting in there. Dirty, very poor food...(last time i went the batter was almost black) never again. I think they rely on drunks from soi cowboy for their trade.

Hope this helps

the chippy next to the offshore failed the taxexile test miserably , this was some years ago so things may have changed , but i doubt it , the place was too reminiscent of the typical cypriot run backstreet northern chippy with greasy food and decrepit customers , heads down over their plates as they lined their stomachs before a piss filled night and 20 second knee trembler at the cowboy.

stained raincoats , daily mirrors , cloth caps and woodbines sprung to mind as i forced the oily fish and barely turgid chips into my stomach.

for ex bolton council employees or benefit scroungers only. for the terminally homesick i would recommend a visit on a rainy evening.

i once had fish and chips at the seafood restaurant on soi 24 , it was excellent but very very pricey.

there is a newish food court in the emporium , not the thai food court , but the one near to burger king , with a variety of "upmarket" outlets. there is a seafood outlet there that serves a very passable fish and chips for 199baht , using seabass.

never been to oh my cod , where is it ?

This is the link to the "Oh My Cod" cafe which came out tops in the best british restaurant. It is a map showing where they are. The website says they belong to the UK regulatory board for fish and chip shops.

Thanks to everyone who took the time and trouble to reply, much appreciated.

Personally I thought the chips at Oh My Cod were disappointing. They were very thick chunky and firm, not like anything you would get in an English chippy. More like home made chips, which are only great when your Mum makes them!

ye gotta look at the fish...cod is usually frozen whereas the local snapper or other fish is fresh...there was a place near soi cowboy that did good fish an' chips using local fish...had the appearance of an engish chip shop..

the chips should be OK if the fryer knows his arse from a hole inna ground...mind, decent potatoes are sumtimes hard to come by...

Sorry guys, I cant believe this question, asking for fish and chips in Thailand? Give me a break. What about german sausages, french baguette or greek meza? This is Thailand, can't you really accept thai kitchen with all it's varieties? Have you tried it? Fish and chips is soooo cheap and unhealthy. I know all my brit friends love it, but why?

Ok, I'm fat myself so I cannot be an example. I don't want to criticise as I have many UK friends, just wonder why one would like fish and chips in BKK

Oh My Cod offers both imported Cod and local red snapper prepared as fish & chips.

Also, for those unfamilar with embedded links when you see text underlined in a post that means the URL is embedded so just click on the underlined text to be taken to the linked website. Example: Oh My Cod Menu

I know it's not Bangkok, and I am not actually a thourough bred Englishman, but the best Cod & Chips I have had in the country was in Surin, in the Farang Connection. I remember Martin, he's the owner, saying to one customer who asked if the fish and chips was the same as you get in London, he replied " I blody hope not" :o

well speaking for myself and someone who has been here just over 5 years, I love Thai food as much as the next man, but now and again you cant beat a taste of home. I can accept the Thai kitchen and eat Thai food 90% of the time, but whats really wrong with a bit of variety and a reminder of home now and again? Yes it is not the healthiest of foods, but now and again wont do too much damage. A lot of Thai food isnt exactly the healthiest of foods either and seeing as this is the western food in Thailand forum, we are hardly going to be discussing where to find the best Tom yum goong in here anyway.

No Offshore is terrible. They come from the Fish and Chip shop next door that is part of the same business and you just have to look at the oil to see how bad it is. An I have tried, many times, usually assisted by alcohol.. :o

The best, by far is actually The Ship Inn about 20 yards further towards Soi Cowboy. I take visitors there who always comment that it is better than blighty!
