Your average chippy in Scotland is a corner shop with a deep fryer and usually (hopefully) someone behind the counter who has been slinging fried fish and haggis for decades, and knows how to do it without leaving you with a pile of oil and not much else. Chippy Doon the Lane is a modern take on a chip shop... More

In town recently doing some last minute Xmas shopping and didn't know where to eat. We didn't want the usual Xmas fayre and the ridiculous prices that go along with that, so walking up Buchanan street decided to try Chippy doon the lane. What a good choice! We had never been before and to be honest the entrance to the... More

First visit, we hadn't booked but table was available, despite being very busy. Had fish tea and haddock and chips with sides of mushy peas and pickle onions. Great sized portions. Food was brilliant chips were great, staff checking to see if everything ok. Definitely recommend!

As you wander off Buchanan Street into a dodgy looking side street, particularly in the rain and hey we are in Glasgow, you may wonder if you are in the right place for some of the best fish and chips you will taste.... You ascend the utilitarian stairs, and open the door into a very pleasant, tidy and bustling restaurant... More

The Smoked Fish Chowder,one of the specials at the Chippy Doon the Lane restaurant,was not a chowder at all but a vaguely fishy liquidised soup -a chowder is never liquidised. It is a kind of fish stew. We rejected the Chippy's version of chowder,which they seemed proud of,but it still appeared on the bill & we would have been charged... More

Not somewhere I would rave about - but ok food in a pleasant, but very busy, restaurant. Great to get a sit down in the middle of the city - worth booking unless you are prepared for a long wait for a table - especially at week ends
