Can I Get Fish With That Batter and Microwave Fries?

I went to Johns Fish N Chips with high hopes of sitting down to one of my favorite meals Fish N Chips. Extremely disappointed with the food I was served looked like yesterdays leftovers, I must say serve some fish with that batter, was not fresh, cold mushy microwave fries. I went to the counter after waiting for server to come ask how things were, after she noticed I was picking through the food. I told her it was mushy fries and all batter no fish. She pretend to do something for me saying she would not charge me for the food ran the bill and I paid for it all. Gave her 100 got change for a 20. Sorry John, you got heart but you don't got food. Two thumbs down. Would not return, don't know if ill get burnt after a few drinks might get wrong change and not notice. Don't see what's the hype about this place. Toronto start need to make a suprise return visit.

Best Fish and Chips !!

We were recommended to try this place for Good Friday and were pleasantly surprised. The fish and chips was crispy and NOT greasy at all. I had a greek salad (love their dressing) and my husband had the coleslaw. We all loved the desserts, especially the homemade baklava, which we took four pieces to go! LOL I must say, the service was quick and the staff were very friendly. I think this was the best fish 'n' chips restaurant that I have eaten at in long time. We will make this place our regular fish 'n' chips place from now on! HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

Not the best i've had

The fish was a bit soggy when it arrived so I didn't care much for it. I was surprised actually at how greasy it was considering all the reviews. The waitress was just not having the best day or something (the one with the glasses, not sure of name, just avoid!! lol) The chips were good though but that's not what i came for. Overall I would not eat there again, there's lots of great fish and chips places in Toronto, this is just not one of them.

Best halibut & chips in Etobicoke

I have tried most of the fish & chip places in Etobicoke, but I keep coming back to John's and am never disappointed. The fish portion is generous, coleslaw is light and tangy, not drowned in oil. The service is always attentive, and the atmosphere's nice.

The Best Fish and Chips

I've been coming here my entire life. It is the best fish & chips I've ever had. I always order the Halibut fish & chips with a Greek salad and I'm never disappointed. The batter is light and crispy and the halibut is superb. The Greek salad is also not-to-be-missed. I highly recommend John's.

The atmosphere was very warm and friendly. The decor was nautical, fresh and above all very clean. We started with the calamari and tzatziki appetizer. The calamari was so tender, it practically melted in your mouth and the tzatziki was by far the best tzatziki we've had. We had one haddock on the grill and one breaded. It was great. I really enjoyed the greek salad with their homemade dressing. For dessert we enjoyed the homemade baklava. Our dining experience was amazing and I look forward to dining there on a regular basis.

Have tried different fish & chips places throughout the city but I always come back to John's. Now it is the only fish & chips place that I go to. The halibut is the best...the batter is so light and not greasy at all and the calamari is wonderful - a very light, delicate coating and cooked perfectly. I also have the Greek salad which is really good and so is the cole slaw (vinaigrette not mayo, thankfully!) The place is casual, friendly and clean and I hope it stays around for a long time.

I first came to this restaurant many, many years ago and the fish & chips were to die for. A year or so I came back with my sister for her birthday - again - no disappointments but I must caution people on coming on Good Friday which is what we did. Although the wait was a long time I did not mind because I know the food is great. Every fish & chip restaurant on Good Friday had line-ups out the door.

We were not disappointed. The food is wonderful. The best Calamari in Toronto in my opinion. Friday Nights can be busy between 6 and 8. You might have to wait a few minutes for a table.
