Beware, it's busy. But, that's a good sign. We go around 3pm on a Saturday and that's usually a good time. However, even when there's a long line-up, it moves really fast. The food is fabulous and the service is fast and friendly.

Exceptionally light batter separate this Fish from many others. A bust spot in Leaside where finding parking is the biggest challenge you will face. My East Coast friends all agree this is the best they have tasted.

This was the best fish and chips that I've ever had. The halibut was fabulous. The chowder was very good, as was the Greek salad. The onion rings were incredible as well.

Located in the light industrial area of Laird Drive, one wouldn't expect to find the best British food in the city. With the ambience of an upscale Victorian parlour, Olde Yorke provides a full selection of great fish and chips along with traditional favourites like mushy peas and trifle. I done at least weekly. Try to arrive early for dinner... More

Olde Yorke is a great place to eat fish and chips. Their fish is always fresh and tasty and their home made chips are delicious. Love their mushy peas too. Great place for take out food. Thumbs up!!

ate lunch with a friend. We both had clam chowder, he had fisherman's platter (Halibut, shrimp, scallops) and I had halibut and chips.. Soup was very nice, and fish was good. Batter is not the light kind but a little heavier. Good service, reasonable price. A very nice lunch. It is quite busy and we waited for a table. My... More

Heard all the raves about the chippy so being good Brits visiting this area we went for supper. My wife walks with 2 canes and we were appalled to see a disabled sign and ramp saying only for wheel chairs !!! So she had a few stairs to take and then move a curtain out of the way to get... More

Friends suggested visiting this restaurant, located in the Leaside section of Toronto, for dinner. I had somehow overlooked this establishment, despite the fact that I live at Yonge and St. Clair, not far away. In a nutshell, if you like fish and chips done right, this is the place to go - by far the best experience in the GTA.... More

My husband and I come here on the regular. He's British and the fish and chips here is just like back home. The fish is fresh and the batter crispy, the fries are homemade and thick cut...They even have mushy peas! With a pint of Tetley's, this is the perfect trip back home without going through customs and immigration!

Do you want excellent English style, beer-batter fish & chips? This wonderful pub-like restaurant is your answer. Warm and charming, with a friendly staff and effective service, on site parking and a take-out window, we visit here regularly and are never disappointed. Good value for great food from "over home" - the owner is understood to be an ex-pat Englishman... More

Staying in East York

Neighbourhood Profile
East York
East York includes a portion of old, industrial Toronto. Densely populated but incredibly safe, it boasts some of the city's earliest gardens and gardening clubs, attracting green thumbs everywhere. The tranquility of the Don Valley River area, which is rich with Toronto's oldest and tallest forests, is supplemented by the large ensemble of authentic and refurbished Edwardian homes, giving parts of East York allure. The other draw is for foodies: lovers of Bangladeshi fare will find authentic restaurants and markets in the area, with raw spices and desserts. East York also represents a lot of Toronto's Serbian food culture, and recently, has had an outcropping of solid microbrewery stops. For families, the science center is a favored weekend stop.
