Went to George's last week for some fish and chips......a struggle to get a smile out of the staff....bit depressing....the walls are covered with reviews from 15 years ago...I do wish someone would go and do a review now. Cod and chips were average.

Was recommended by one of the market seller. After a long walk, a hearty meal (fish n chips) was extremely wonderful. The fish was tender and the batter was just right as it was light.
It wasn't a big place but it was also good place to rest and take a breather. Highly recommended. The only con was the long walk up to the place but it was worth the walk and you won't feel tired especially there are alot of stuffs to look at while walking.

During my first visit to George's, I felt as though I walked the entire length of Portobello Road. I passed several busy intersections and even a school before I reached this small restaurant. Thankfully, the food was good and there was no need to wait very long. During my second visit, I noticed that at a certain time of the day, a line of people can form outside the restaurant. (If there are many people, it's very difficult to get a table because there are only 2-3 tables outside.)

Another bonus is that this restaurant is almost right across the street from one of my favorite shops along Portobello Road!

It is a fish shop - a very nice one, and in the 1st floor you find a small, exquisite, though simple restaurant. You can combine different fishes with different sauces and side-dishes, and if you like order some starters.

Very good and the spicing is fabulous - certainly worthwhile when you are in the area, and if you live fish then it is worth the trip through London.

The staff in George's are extremely rude!! George's used to have a good reputation but I feel it's slowly losing it. Over priced food and over rated. Nobody likes arrogance. Don't bother.
