Street food fish & chips?? I've never seen that. Possible, just very unlikely. Could try Khao San road. But almost always street food is prepared to fit a low price, not to reach high quality.
You can get acceptable fish and chips at any of the British pubs. Usually not a wonderful meal, because they usually use cheap Pacific Cod fish or the even cheaper Panglosius trash fish. Results, for me, are less than enjoyable.
As for dedicated "chippies" they come and go rather quickly. The few I've sampled recently (for delivery) have not been worth a second order. Years ago there was a New Zealand chippie in Sukhumvit soi 11 with consistently excellent fish. But it's long gone.
So, @justdavid, If you find street food fish and chips that are decent quality, please post a report here. Will be others on this forum who would appreciate knowing about it, sure.
