This is possibly the best spot for fish and chips in San Jose. The fish is cooked really well and the chips are never soggy. Plus, the portions are huge! Overall, you can't go wrong here if you're in the mood for fish and chips.

Biggest bang-for-the-buck as far as fish & chips that I've found in the San Jose area. Sometimes it's tough getting a table but it's always been worth it so far. Large portions perfectly cooked. I would recommend the daily combo specials.

I go to this place about once a month and every time I am not disappointed. The fish is fresh and freshly cooked as well.
