Located on Lewes Road in Brighton, Fillets is a shiny beacon of hope for those craving a large portion of the quintessential British classic, fish and chips. As you would expect from a seaside city, Brighton and Hove is literally crawling with similar establishments and trying to decipher which ones are worth a visit to satisfy your deep fried cravings can be a minefield. I’d heard great things about Fillets, so when I was invited to sample the delights on offer by owner Nicep, I couldn’t wait to get stuck into some battered loveliness. First impressions, the premises are so clean they sparkle, which is something most of us look out for when buying a takeaway. However, when ordering through a delivery app, it’s impossible to know the cleanliness level of where your takeaway originates. Rest assured, that isn’t an issue here. I ordered a large cod and chips which was cooked fresh. I liked the fact there wasn’t loads of food sitting in the display as quite often it goes soggy and can look a little unappetising. Onto the important part, what was the food like? I can honestly say I’ve never seen such a huge piece of battered cod, it was enormous, so big in fact I had to share it and it wouldn’t fit onto my dinner plate when I got home. The chips were golden and cooked to perfection and again the portion was ridiculously large.
I’d definitely order again. You can get delivery through Uber Eats and aside from fish and chips you can also choose burgers, sausages, chicken, pies, drinks and a vast array of sides.
