It was the end of a fabulous day. I was tired. Hubby and I had eaten a big, late lunch.He wanted to go to Hampstead again and wanted Chinese, even though there were other probably better choices nearby. They didn't have the charming look of this place in Hampstead. So off we went. We made reservations for 9:45. They were... More

I'm pescatarian. I have not eaten meat for 25 years. I specifically asked for the seafood menu. I chose the seafood noodles and checked before that there'd be no crayfish and they assured me there would be only calamari and vegetables. I noticed red meat in the dish when i'd already started eating. I asked the waitress. She explained casually... More

We went to The Goldfish for my Mum's birthday whilst staying in London for the weekend. We wanted something a little different to the Italian food we normally eat and a bit special for my Mum's birthday. The dim sum was lovely and perfect for 2 to share. Very flavoursome and fresh. I had the special which was prawns in... More

We were recommended goldfish and I have to say we were not disappointed with any part of the meal or service. After reading some of the reviews on here you may think it is maybe one to avoid but if you do you will not experience one of the best Chinese meals you can have...so ignore the negative ones. So...

I'm a Hampstead local sadly most of the restaurants in the area are either not very good quality or chains. Goldfish was one of a handful we did go to as a family and enjoy. Goldfish downsized a few years ago and moved to a spot across the road from its original location. This didn't seem to result in any... More

We stumbled across Goldfish yesterday with friends! It was very quiet so staff where amazingly attentive. We all had the set lunch set plus a couple of extra dishes for the table. The food was nice - just a tad over priced & nothing to rave about! Would rather stick with the tried and tested - Queensway; Gold Mine or... More

We arrived and had a pleasant welcome and the interior feels nice and active but the food is absolutely terrible.... we ordered the "Chef's specialty" wasabi prawns and a quarter duck just to start off...the wasabi prawns were drenched in the wasabi sauce and fried with old oil - quite inedible for 5 prawns @ 16:95 ...the pancakes for the...

It's in Hampstead ...anywhere else in Britain and it would be £6 for fried rice and NOT £12..is what I was going to write,...but now this..... It is priced for quality, before the surroundings...it sits well in this affluent area and gives what is demanded...the Clientele are 'Premier League'...a customer is a customer to me and this place echoes that...the...

Highly recommended. Food is out of this world in terms of quality and taste. Some very original and unique dishes. Something for everyone. This is definitely not to be missed! Can't wait to come again!

Food was ok, nothing to rave about. Serivce was friendly, but toilets were not that clean and I think that says a lot about a restaurant.
