Mr. Chips' shtick by and large is to take the humble art of battering fish and deep-frying chips to a more sophisticated plain, and it works. One-man kitchen machine Zak El Hamdou previously acted as head chef at London's three-star Michelin Restaurant La Tante and Beijing's Cours Et Pavilions Hotel, using here his Midas touch here on everything from battered cod to scotch eggs and striped seabass to Norwegian salmon. And then there are of course the chips, which rank as some of the best and most authentic British-style chips in Beijing.

Visit during the RMB 98 three-course supper menu with drink between 5-7pm for the best way to sample the menu.

Review of Mr. Chips

It's a little difficult to find but worth the trouble!

I started with a scotch egg then the striped seabass (fried to perfection) with hand cut chips and all accompanied by the traditional mushy peas. A beer to drink and for dessert, a brilliant Eton mess!

I have had fish and chips in other resturants and hotels in Beijing and I have to say Mr. Chips is the best. A true taste of England!

Review of Mr. Chips

I am writing this review representing all the "Brits in Beijing" , This is so far the best Chip shop ever, and we are proud ot it. Mr. Chips reminds me of HOME, whenever I am homesick I pop in occasionally and everytime the food comes out as good as gold. All the rumors about the British Cuisine, take my words and pop in to Mr. Chips for a taste of ENGLAND. Cheers

Well done Mr. Chips, We are proud of you !

If the food is as bad as the service, it won't be around long

Review of Mr. Chips

It was my birthday on Monday, and the wife and I travelled 2 hours to try out Mr. Chips. Before opening a physical location, he was constantly on WeChat promoting his wares, so it looked like a great option, especially as we are both British and Mr. Chips offers a veggie fish option. We were so excited to try something previously very hard to find in Beijing.

However, upon arrival dead-on 5.30pm, the place was in darkness with not a soul around. We awaited until 6pm, when we finally found his WeChat contact and added him. After 10 minutes, he replied, simply saying "Sorry for any inconvenience", without any attempt at further explanation or apology. For sure, we will not be making the trek back here, and if the food is the same quality as the terrible service, it certainly won't be around much longer.
