We were disappointed after our last visit so happy to report things were back to normal having visited again last night. One comment - There was a wee guy with what looked like an Avengers tattoo on his neck who could have been a bit friendlier with his staff training. I felt a bit sorry on a... read more

I visited the silvery Tay and purchased 3 meals. My husband had a spicy haggis and it wasn't until we arrived home and he cut into it he found a blue plastic wrapper contained within the batter. I contacted them and was told I would recieve a phone call from the manager regarding this which never happened! I wouldn't recommend... More

I first and foremost wish to apologise for what has happened, but unfortunately I wasn't made aware of this complaint. I've spoken to all members of staff and none can shed any light on it. Can you please call the shop and ask to speak to myself, (Bene) with a view to establishing what happened and to enable me to... More

Not only is the food freshly cooked, all food cooked to perfection and the staff (especially the boss Bene) are of the friendliest people and provide excellent customer service every time I have been for my supper, which is quite regularly as I've been a customer for almost 15 years now. Could not understand how anyone could go anywhere else... More

At my local chippys in Banff and Turriff i can happily order an unbattered,well done breast of chicken and it is perfect,no matter how busy they are! Whilst down at my folks in Dundee they drag me to this place (i was born 1/4 mile away by the way!!) and it is just rubbish,repeatedly. The grumpy manager drives the staff... More

I wish to offer my sincere apologies that you didn't receive your chicken on your last visit. As you may be aware, we cook almost all of our food to order, and most items only take 5-10 minutes to prepare. Unfortunately, our chicken takes 20-25 minutes to cook and therefore cannot be cooked to order as this is generally too... More

My family have all used this chip shop since it opened and have always had 1st class service and find the staff to be very polite and helpful. The fact that the queues are usually out on to the street speaks for itself.

Totally Scunnered with my visit to your chippy tonight (16/12/14) myself and my family have been regulars for over 30 years. The girl who served me tonight was the rudest person I have ever met. I placed my order and in that order was a battered sausage supper which is all my daughter will eat. I heard her call for... More

The wait for food was ridiculous. Have had better frozen chips from tesco. And the cod was not what I expected fish fingers would be better. Won't be going again to say the least even if I was unlucky.
