Definitely will not buy food from here again. Tiny portion of chips despite asking for enough for 4 people. All food tasted horrible. Asked for chicken nuggets and they gave me 1 chicken nugget! Yes that's right 1 chicken nugget! Took them 25 minutes to prepare this awful meal.

These guys have a great operation going. Efficient service. Great burgers, yiros, fish and chips. Their potato cakes are yummy. Their hero dish is chips and a tub of gravy.

A little hidden away, but a reasonable price and good value. The chips were perfect, one piece of fish (out of 5) a little overcooked, so not sure what happened there.

We went there because English friends had told us it was the closest from what we get in England: the best they ha tried in Australia. We liked it, the snapper fish was very good. A little bit too oily though and a little bit too small. The service was not great: the waiters are not very nice but the... More

Decent portion size and the food was hot but the service was average and it took more than 40 minutes for 3 serves of chips, 6 calamari rings and 3 potato cakes. All the while the staff advised it would be ready soon. Chips and potato cakes were OK but the (battered) calamari was below average. Won't be going back.
