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.

Popped in for a baked potato and sausage supper. Potato was huge with cheese and beans - delicious. Double sausage with great-tasting skins-on chips. Only issue: couldn't tell whether guy was asking me if I wanted "bUtter" or "bAtter"!

Never had a bad meal and in the space of two years we have tried pretty much the whole menu. We both went for pasta tonight. Macaroni was divine, creamy , cheesy , saucy ! What more could you ask, pasta Giovannis , creamy , peas ham and onio. Free garlic bread! Great.

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
