Living in Arizona, it’s tough to find a good fish & chip meal so I was excited when I finally got a chance to visit Gordon Ramsay’s newest restaurant in Las Vegas, Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips.
It’s located in the Promenade at the Linq somewhat in the middle of the shops. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Would it be a full on sit down restaurant with waiters? Would it be a little takeaway chippy shop like you would find in England? Turns out to be a combination of both. You can stand in line, place your order then wait for it at the end of the counter and hope you can find a seat at a table or outside on the railing counter.
The prices weren’t too bad considering it’s Vegas and a Chef Ramsay joint. A fish combo with a basic drink can be had for $14.99. I obvi decided to upgrade my drink to an import beer (which was a short pour btw) for $5 more. Eating and drinking anywhere for $20 in Vegas is not a bad deal really. I am used to getting nickel and dimed for the most part so getting a bit of a value put me in a non horrible mood.
I was expecting to get a large piece of fish but instead was served up 3 smaller almost fish stick sized pieces. Also, wasn’t sure what to expect for the fries but they came out nice and crispy and very tasty. They reminded me of fries I would get in a Canadian fish and chip shop. Definitely not similar to an authentic fish and chip shops in England but that’s fine with me, I’m not in England after all ffs.
All in all I was very satisfied with the whole thing. How can you really screw up a meal where everything is deep fried though? Load that shit up with Malt vinegar and ketchup and we’re good to go!
The ordering and picking up is a bit of a clusterfuck and could have been thought out better I think. Would I go back? Maybe. Maybe not. There are so many choices in Vegas I am not sure. I am just glad it was tasty and I have been to all Ramsay places in Vegas as I am a yuge fan.
To make it more English authentic they need to offer gravy and charge 20p for a packet of ketchup. Yes can you believe that shit? Fish and chip shops in England hose you for a bloody ketchup packet!!! UGHHHH!! Also, it was very clean. If you want that true Brit chippy shop feel everything should be coated in grease and dirt.
I give Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips 4 stars.
