Not the best anymore

This was our regular chippy, not anymore. Not good at all now, rude staff, and less than average chips/pizza etc such a shame as it was such a good place.

Used to be a brilliant chippy but until they get someone who can speak English on the phone then this place is doomed I'm afraid! 20 minutes to make an order and it still didn't arrive after waiting an hour for 2 fish suppers, definitely avoid this place!

... and now just very average. The chips used to be amazing, now they are all dried out and tasteless. I ordered a pizza from here recently and the cheese was cheap and stringy, you could tell that they had skimped. Very, very, average.

Simply the best fish supper in Edinburgh. Well worth the wait for the delivery. Potato fritters to die for . Have tried the pasta dishes and burgers and never found fault with anything. Great service, friendly driver. Sorted, will go back again and again.

This was a buzzing, fabulous Italian and now......well, where's the passion gone? Our Pizza was absolutely awful. No flavour, no tomato, no cheese. It resembled the cardboard box they get delivered in. Honestly... if I had closed my eyes I could have been eating water. No taste at all. Even with masses of garlic, there was nothing. Staff falling over... More

2 hours for one pasta dish to be delivered. Paid for chips also but they were nowhere to be seen. Tried to cancel it as I was so tired and past hungry but I was told I would have to contact just eat to get a refund. I know the pasta takes 5 mins to cook so how it took... More

A night in with friends, we all have kids so for a hassle free evening we decided to order food for delivery. We were lied to from start to finish, phoned an order totalling almost £40, specifically asked about delivery times and told 45-60 minutes. Phoned after an hour and a quarter and told "it's leaving the shop now". A... More

Very nice surroundings, friendly and attentive staff. The food was fresh, as you should expect, but not always the case when visiting other restaurants. Generous portions and value for money. I wasn't hungary afterwards anyway, well fed, yum.

This is not a restaurant and you will not be served wine or beer! However, it is a very good chip shop and deliveries will take some time because it is very popular. Big selection of food and huge portions. My wife and I gave up on a full fish supper each a long time ago - one supper will... More

We had garlic/chicken pizza, and a mixed pepper pizza. Where was the flavor? It tasted like bread with bland sauce on it. It needed lots of basil, oregano, pepper, salt, and a bit more cheese.
