With dad being in town, it seemed only fitting that we help ourselves to some fish and chips. Since we were going to the Philharmonic at the Royal Festival Hall we Googled for a fish and chips restaurant near the Southbank and landed on Masters Super Fish which received rave reviews on TripAdvisor and Yelp.
You enter by way of the takeaway kiosk and find your way to the dining room next door where you are welcome to seat yourselves at any available table. Windows look out on the main street and invite natural light into the room and the wall is partially papered with currency from different countries.
After ordering from the selection of fish, a plate of bread and shrimp are brought to the table. I found the eyes on the shrimp rather disconcerting and it was amusing as dad and I tried to get to the meat but at least I tried something new.
Soon our dinners arrived and talk about HUGE portions. The waitress also brought around bowls of pickles and onions for us to choose from if we wished.
The fish was fresh, moist and delicious and the chips were tasty. It was a definite treat and although we have never sampled a large number of fish and chips options in London, we were well pleased and for the price and amount of food we were served I would definitely recommend Masters Super Fish if anyone was fancying fish and chips in the Southbank/Waterloo area.
