Following the huge success of Fish! restaurant in Borough Market, Tony Allan developed his Fish! concept further to create Fish! Kitchen in Kingston upon Thames. Encompassing the Fish! brand ethos and offering the highest quality fresh fish, simply cooked and at a fair price, it opened to great reviews and have fast become a local favourite renowned for both our traditional fish and chips as well as our grilled fish.

Located in peaceful Kingston on Coombe Rd, Fish! Kitchen undoubtedly serves the best fish and hand cut chips in South West London. Popular with lunchtime crowds, this restaurant caters for adults and children alike. The kids can choose from a kiddie menu and leave the adults in peace as they scribble all over the paper place mats with crayons supplied by the restaurant. Favourites include classic prawn cocktail to start and the swordfish club sandwich, a modern twist on the traditional.

Had the loveliest anniversary meal last night at Fish! Kitchen. Great service, fantastic bottle of Sancerre, absolutely gorgeous food. Oysters were the best I've had for ages and I highly recommend the tuna carpacchio and langoustines... Really special thanks guys! xx

We were sat outside, waited for ages before anyone even came over to see if we wanted a drink.
When we ordered our drinks, they only brought the wine, we had to remind them for the beer we had ordered too.
The food was nice, but overpriced for portion size.
I had the langoustines which were nice, but wasn’t given a water bowl for my hands or a plate or bowl to put the shells in, had to try and eat the salad under them by pushing the shells to one side, not a great experience!
My husband had the crab starter which included the under belly which was not pleasant and also had shell in.
We ordered two desserts which we had to send back to ask for them to be heated up as they were cold in the middle, when they came back they burnt our mouths lol.
When we were paying the bill, we asked the lady to just round it up so we included a tip and split it in two, we were two couples dining. She reacted quite rudely and went back to the till and when she came back and we repeated what we had said she seemed a little confused and still told us half of the bill, we ourselves just told her what we were doing and she did it and then seemed happy about the tip.
Our waiter was pleasant but moaned to us about another member of staff and some issues they had had that evening, not really appropriate to discuss with customers, in my opinion.
Overstaffed but the service didn’t reflect this, perhaps the management of the front of house needs some attention.
Little disappointing as our last visit was much better and we had suggested this restaurant to our friends for our catch up as he is a lover of fish.

The only good thing I can say is the fish was fresh. Other than that the service, cooking and value were awful. So disappointing. So expensive for what it is. And don't be fooled by the website still featuring a set menu - we were abruptly told they haven't offered it since 2019.

Looks like a fish and chip shop from the outside dont judge a book by its cover as the staff were really polite and friendly. Food was exceptional we had the biggest oysters ever and fresh cooked fish was amazing. Great value for what you get. Definitely visit again a must if you've never been.

Had a fantastic early dinner here, fresh creamy devon oysters and devilled whitebait for starters followed by amazing fish and chips. The staff were so helpful with explanations and the service was great.
Will definitely be going back soon

Beautifully fresh fish, cooked simply and well. The outside terrace faces north and east, so a bit shady, and no one would say the outlook is attractive! However, the food, wine and service more than compensated. We had tempura prawns, wonderfully crisp and tender, tuna carpaccio which was perfect, followed by a salmon and smoked haddock fish cake, light and perfectly cooked with spinach and a tangy creamy sauce, and creamy yellow smoked haddock sitting on spinach and topped with a poached egg. We drank a crisp Sauvignon Touraine from a short well-chosen wine list. Service was charming and helpful. Not particularly cheap, but given the quality, excellent value. Highly recommended.
