They are old but gold and despite all the rise of trendy food popping up everywhere, the traditional fish & chips remains as one of the quintessential and all-time favourite Western dishes.

And here are 7 Best Places For Fish & Chips in Klang Valley listed in alphabetical order!
1) Big Fish Small Fish @ Bandar Sunway
Hailing all the way from Singapore, Big Fish Small Fish finally swam across the border and made its way to Bandar Sunway just a few months ago. One of the very first things worth noticing is their shipping container-like interior, all dominated with bright yellow and black decor.
Then comes the menu, notably their signature Fish & Crisps with different choices of fish such as dory, seabass and salmon. The fish fillet is perfectly coated with crispy batter and only fried upon order. It comes with an ample portion of freshly- and thinly-sliced potato crisps. And if you are looking for a complete meal, you can opt for a set that includes a drink and add-on side dishes like mashed potato and coleslaw.
And there’s more: Big Fish Small Fish has plenty of sauces to choose from and they are all free flow! That means you can simply help yourselves with the likes of mayonnaise, cheese, salted egg and tartar sauce to your heart’s content. Whichever you choose, they are all perfect dips for your fish and crisps!
