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.

We always go to the Silvery Tay for a chippy tea and it’s never disappointed before. This last visit was pretty poor though. I understand things are cooked fresh to order (usually always worth waiting for) but I had to wait a silly length of time while several members of staff mucked about and blethered among themselves. The two kids... More
