I love a classic fish and chips place. Thistle really gets it right. It has charm, the servers are lovely, but the fish and chips are the best. We always get an order of fish, chips (both haddock & halibut) and a side of mushy...More

Best fish in the city, hands down. Light, crispy batter and the fish is always so fresh. The restaurant is busy most of the time, however takeout is fast and efficient. Cole Slaw is very tasty and pairs well with the fish.
