A lovely fish bar

had a family takeaway from here and have to say how impressed i was at the cleanliness of the establishment. The fish was fried fresh, the pies were nicely cooked as was the saveloy. The chip shop sauce was authentic Chinese style (with a little spice) and the chips were as they should be. Server... read more

We used to use your chip shop on a regular basis and the food was always good, but last night we came in and had food from you and it was the worst I have ever had. We ordered chips & curry sauce and chips & SF chicken. The chips were disgusting and the curry sauce was nothing more than... More

I couldn't park anywhere so had a long walk to get my favourite evening meal. When there the owner acts like you're best mates. Cringey and makes the experience unenjoyable. Also the cars park on the pavement and I couldn't even get in the shop without having to navigate the extremely busy and dangerous road. I know go to the... More

These are probably the best fish and chips in Norwich, but the service is like being in a McDonalds. It's so false. I've been here probably near to 100 times though and only once had poor fish and chips. Unfortunately this was recently and I haven't been back since.

Always a great service and good fish & chips. Staff are always friendly and attentive and in all the years this has been open never once had a bad serving! Quick and easy lunch or dinner!

This fish bar has been around for some time and offers good fish and great chips It's a bit of a pain at times to wait for your order to be cooked, but at least it is then fresh out of the pan. Really friendly staff.

This chip shop is always good. I am not a regular as I don't live nearby but every time I do the food is well cooked, with decent sized portions and friendly staff. Well worth a visit.

We used to use this a lot but you would often wait up to 10 minutes at 8.30pm for you food. There are chip shops that have freshly cooked on the door signs and you accept this is the case but not this one. The food when you receive it is lovely but doesn't stand out from the nearer shops... More
