Whilst shopping nearby the lovely aroma of fish and chips floated into my nostrils. It was so appealing that I could not resist it and partook of a delicious fish supper.

Been going here for years and would say that along with The Bridge chippy, is the best in Dundee. Can't fault the food which is cooked fresh and is always top quality. The guy taking the orders with the tattoos on his neck needs to be a bit more polite though. He comes across as moody, grumpy and gives the... More

Great Choice - Great Food - Great Service and Home Delivery Too. The best fish and chip shop by far in Dundee. Only down side is sometimes the wait but all cooked fresh to order so it's worth it.........

The food !! Greasy - very greasy - I had fish and chips and felt a bit sickly afterwards. Which is a shame as its a quite busy take away. Don't take my word for it ... compare the box it is served in after you have had your food. The cardboard is lined with a film of grease.

Wonderful icelandic haddock & great chips, freshly made. Given the size of the queues the staff work quickly & efficiently to get through them so the wait isn't as long as you expect. Regular shopper as it's a family favourite.

Always try and go here when visiting family nearby. Fish and chips are always amazing and superb value and cooked fresh to order (this may cause a queue when busy but stick it out, it's worth it). Only one complaint is that my fiancée would love if you had macaroni pies, but for me it's a good thing you don't.
