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.
I had better for less. I had a large Cod... The fish was fried well but bland not spiced or salted well. The tartar sauce was delicious. The fries were ok.
The price was high. I think I paid 18£ for just the plate including 1.99 service charge.
Be aware that if you sit down they charge you 3£ extra plus service charge. If I knew that I would have gotten a take out.
The service was good, the waitresses were nice and helpful.
I had better fish and chips in North London around Turnpike Lane area. You know one of those neighbourhood spots that shouldn't be better than nice restaurants like this? Yeah, I think it was called 'Poseidon's'. Do yourself a favour if you want real fish and chips and take the Piccadilly over there.
Reasonably priced, great good, knowledgeable but curt staff.
When the waitress said "it doesn't taste of anything", she wasn't kidding. We could barely taste the difference between the cod and the haddock. When I asked for her recommendation between the plaice (that also "didn't taste of anything") and the rock salmon (which is a shark, not a salmon and has more of a "fish" taste) - she confirmed that I was okay with the "fish" taste and immediately recommended the rock. No regrets on my part though nobody else at the table appreciated it since they all preferred their cods and haddocks.
Wouldn't advise sitting in front of the bathroom though, not just cause its really cramped but unless you like getting a whiff of the toilet each time the door closes, I don't think you'll find it pleasant.
I took a small cod, chips, and mushy peas for takeaway. I am not sure why it is called a small cod because the portions are gigantic, and there was no way I could finish this, eventhough I'm a big eater. The chips were fine, a bit soft, but that is actually the way I like it. The cod though was for sure fresh, but I found it to be a bit bland tasting. I am not from London so maybe this is the way it is supposed to taste.
I don’t know how this place has such high ratings. The cod was soggy and undercooked. I had a stomach ache all night a few hours after eating this. It looked nice but that’s about it. Prices are also high but it’s the area. Wanted to go to Golden hind but it closes from 3-6 :(
