I was a devotee of Goldfish when it was across the road, but usually for a dim sum lunch. This time it was for a late dinner. I am not sure I prefer the rather cramped feel of the new interior, despite its white linen, I rather liked the airy spaciousness and wooden tables of the old establishment. Perhaps it... More

I had a (single) spring roll starter which was greasy and quite bland with no sauce or anything on the side. The main was pumpkin edamame tofu - three things I love, so I was excited to try it. Unfortunately the tofu was unseasoned silken tofu, and the small drizzle of pumpkin sauce was almost tasteless with only a mild... More

Continuing my sojourn around Hampstead restaurants before the Tuesday evening meets of the Hampstead Photographic Society, I tried the "Goldfish". A restaurant in the long 'n thin category, my preference was for vegetarian spring rolls followed by chilli chicken. A d very tasty it was too - and in very ample quantities. Follwed up with the banana fritter which was... More

A superb restaurant with an array of Chinese dishes you've never heard of. All served beautifully and all deliciously tasty including a signature dish of Marmite Chicken which I chose simply because the two just didn't go together in my mind. Fabulous and the marmite chicken is a must

We haven't been here since the winter. Reason being is. The last time we visited, they were so grabby. Food was served so quickly. Before We'd finished our first course they were standing there with our mains. Not only that, they keep pestering you with 'would you like another glass of wine' we just find they are there just to... More

We booked this restaurant on open table and in the special notes/requirements we added that it was for a very special occasion for a birthday and engagement. upon arrival i was shocked to see the decor of the restaurant..there were patches of wall paper peeling everywhere, the floor was dirty and the staff were not alert nor welcoming. Half of... More

All round a great restaurant. Pretty much all you can eat (without it being tacky or American buffet) - mountains of fresh dim sum for tow plus a tsing Tao beer for £46.50. Despite other comments on this page, the food here is very good especially considering the value. Would recommend this place for yum cha for sure. Also speedy... More

I went to Goldfish 3 years ago and the food and service was good. So I decided to take my friend Pet & Kit to Goldfish on Monday night. We were very disappointed. Firstly, all the dishes were very small portion. The 9.5pound fry rice was only enough for Pet, the fry Chinese broccoli was half the portion when compare... More

Had dinner at goldfish last night. The place serves good food but the rest is a big let down. The carpet was strewn with leftover food, flies flying around, walls pealing. The carpet is so dirty it's unreal & cannot be hygienic ! Downstairs toilet is next to the washing area & very filthy! Will avoid until refurbished !
