About Fish and Chips By. Baraseeta
The official opening of the branch at Medan Ipoh Bestari was in March, 2021.
They used to have a few different variations of fish and chips. But they have since stuck to 2 flavors.
While not extensive, the menu has a good mix of western mains and desserts. There are yogurt smoothies, coffees, and non-caffeinated beverages. They have beer too.
Note: For the health-conscious, there are no salad options.

This is a busy area behind Aeon Kinta City. There are a lot of eateries here. An equal number of these venues are open for lunch and dinner too.
Thus, finding parking nearby usually takes time. And luck.

Service At Fish and Chips By. Baraseeta
Besides the food, service is one of the highlights of dining at Fish and Chips By. Baraseeta.
We went on a weekday for lunch and the two waitresses were very attentive. Even with the increasing number of customers coming into the restaurant.
Our orders were not straightforward either:
- We changed potato wedges to fries
- A mix of cold and hot drinks
- Different extras with the sets
- Dessert to come after the mains
Regardless, the orders came without mistakes. And pretty fast too.
The waitresses are very alert when it comes to clearing empty dishes.
They brought our dessert to us after seeing that we had finished all our meals. With an extra plate and the correct number of spoons.
PS: The plating and food presentation is aesthetic yet practical
Food At Fish and Chips By. Baraseeta
We do like the fish and chips here. The quality is consistent. And the food is crispy without being oily.
The tartar sauce is rich and not the runny commercial sort. The mushy peas now have a slight mint flavor to them. Which is not bad but it is more authentic to British food to leave the mint out.
Complementary honey lemon drinks that come with the set are homemade. As are the soups, which we appreciate. Both the mushroom and pumpkin soup are nice. A bit peppery, but creamy and flavorful.
Their bacon and pork burger is tasty albeit salty. In our opinion, the fish and chips taste better. We don’t think they use MSG for their food. Or if they do, it’s not a lot.
The brownie has a rich texture. And it comes with almond flakes and chocolate sauce. We love the gelato. It has a distinct natural vanilla flavor and a delightful creamy consistency.
They reheat the brownie so that’s warm when they serve it too.
Cappucino was good by the way. Smooth with an aromatic taste.
Menu & Pricing At Fish and Chips By. Baraseeta
Mains can cost from RM30 to RM50. Coffee costs around RM10.
This was our order, and it came up to RM145+ for 4 pax (one of us did not have a main):
- 2 sets of lemon and pepper fish and chips
- 1 pumpkin soup (with the set)
- 1 mushroom soup and cappuccino (with the set)
- 1 brownie and gelato dessert (with the set)
- 2 honey lemon drinks (with the set)
- 1 plain water
If you divide that total, it’s more than RM35 per person. Which is expensive but their sets are good deals. A top-up of RM8 for a set will get you a cup of coffee and soup!
Note: The set menu is available on weekdays
And they don’t use cheap ingredients for their food. Portions are fair as well.
