Golden Union is the quintessential British Chippy, serving the freshest fish and the finest homemade pies to the people of Soho since 2008. Keeping it simple and staying true to the roots of the Chippy; no frills, just great fresh food and fast friendly service.Using the freshest fish from sustainable British waters, delivered daily and cooked to order in our special home-made batter. The potatoes are sourced weekly from the Fenlands of East Anglia, peeled and cut by hand and fried once, the traditional way, and its fabulous fishcakes and pies are home-made in its restaurant daily and have received rave reviews.
Golden Union serves up a delightful plate of fish and chips. The fish tastes fresh and the batter that they use is crispy and light. Their chips could do with some more crisping up but that’s just me. They have an extensive fish menu. Service is good, prices are just a hairline expensive but it’s worth it. The vibe of the restaurant is that of an American diner but with British soul.
Went for a late lunch. Restaurant is small and has a 50s diner feel. They offer lots of options for fish and chips. We ordered a haddock and chips. It was lightly battered with an amazing tartar sauce. Service was good, but assumed we wanted to tip on the "optional tip". For what you get, it is overpriced.
Incredible fish and chips. We had the cod and haddock, fried to perfection; tender, juicy, delicious. Probably the freshest fish I've had prepared this way, and - unlike many places back home - there's much more fish than batter.
Their homemade tartar sauce was good as well, just the right amount of tang and a wonderful complement to it all. I do wish they gave more, but it's really not worth deducting a star over.
The thick-cut chips were solid and plentiful.
As a foreigner, the price was higher than I'm used to paying for this type of food (15.5 quid for a large portion, I think 2 quid less for the small), but based on local feedback this is about right for London. Considering how fresh the fish was, I don't mind the premium.
If you enjoy fish and chips and don't mind spending more than normal (everything costs more in London anyway), you'll probably love it here. I'll definitely be stopping by on future visits.
Simply put - the best first and chips I ever after. The chips are great, and the fish is of high quality and tender. Go there if you are around!
The large haddock with chips is just that - LARGE. Good chips, good batter on the fish but it did come slightly soggy and greasy on the bottom for my taste. The curry sauce wasn’t some powdered water mix. It came full-flavoured with Daal I believe. The mushy peas had large pepper flakes in it. I like black pepper but god. Otherwise, lovely staff, great fresh fish, good batter and an overall lovely experience.
