When both my friend and I said to other people that we were going for fish and chips in Finchley, all the people independently asked if we were going to the very well known Two Brothers Fish Restaurant. We had not realised until then at how popular this North Finchley establishment was.
There is always something comforting and classic about fish and chips. Two Brothers has a lot on offer including haddock, cod and plaice. They do grilled fish if you are not in the mood for the fried battered variety.
Two Brothers has such a lovely welcoming feel to it and feels quite family orientated. It is a restaurant for everyone: couples, elderly folks, families and friends. The service is personal, friendly, efficient and not at all pretentious.
The fish and chips was a really big portion; a lot bigger than I had expected. The battered plaice fillet made a nice change to the regular cod and haddock. The fish was fresh, tasty and had a light crispy batter. The chips were chunky and just perfect. Fish and chips is not complete without mushy peas. The peas were great too and the whole combination was good with a side of tartare sauce.
Tea was the way to go to end the meal as we were way too full to have dessert. The peppermint tea was great but I really enjoyed the refreshing lemon tea.
Two Brothers is a wonderful fish restaurant which has its fresh fish delivered everyday from Billingsgate Fish Market. This family run restaurant is a place that you should definitely try if you are in North London or even if you are further afield. They also do takeaway if you are in a hurry or just want to enjoy the meal in the comfort of your own home.
