For many years, my wife had been talking up the particular merits of "Aussie-style" fish-n-chips, having spent a year abroad in the Sydney area. So, we were excited to hear about Nazes, and ventured out to Kent a few years back. We put in a large order, including two varieties of house fish (one was an unusual variety, sadly cannot recall), large calamari rings, "potato scallops" and chips. It's hard to say what is distinctively Australian, though the batter is more of a smoother tempura-style with neither bread crumbs, aggressive spicing or beer-flavor (the joint is halal). Most memorable are the potato scallops, kind of an enlarged upgraded version of supermarket "jo-jos," though the calamari was also very nice. I'm not going to pretend as if Nazes achieves Platonic ideal F-n-C, but it is certainly above-average and novel. If I returned, I'd try the halibut, "crumbled" scallops and maybe an Aussie pie.
