This was an excellent find. Great fresh fish tea at a very reasonable £6.40 price tag. Add a glass of bubbly vino for £1.00 - bargain. Nice looking restaurant with a mix of ages from youngsters in love to old bags of dust like the missus and myself. Off Buchanan Street, up a Raymond Chandleresque Lane around the corner from... More

Service was great, my Dad and husband had a sausage supper, great sized portion, I had chicken goujons, plenty and loads of chips, all really tasty, had a couple of sides of curry sauce, mushy peas...

We took a chance on this restaurant because we were looking for seafood, were tired, and had only one night in Glasgow. Walking up Buchanan Street, the popular shopping outdoor mall in city center, we spied the sign for Chippy Doon the Lane and thought the name was catchy. At first we saw that to get to it, you had...

Very pleasant staff and service, staff chat in a very friendly manner, menu is what you would expect from it's name, not a complaint, burger OK but the fish was very very good, batter very nice and the fish (haddock) was exactly as it should be flaking and moist. So don't be put off by the lane or entrance as... More

I go to Chippy Doon The Lane, roughly about once a month with my best friend. We both enjoy going there, the staff are always friendly, the food is excellent and you don't have to wait long for the meals to come out. Me and my friend have never had a problem here. I strongly recommend here as it is... More

Visited for the first time yesterday and was suitably impressed. I have often glanced down the lane off Buchanan Street and been put off ....DON'T BE. Once we went upstairs and got into the restaurant it was a lovely surprise. Spotlessly clean and well set out. Make sure you bring your appetite as the portions are generous and delicious. There...

Not your average chippy, looks more like a funky wine bar, but with food you'd normally eat out of folded newspaper, however don't be misled, it was excellent grub. Local beers, friendly staff, cosy ambience, and relaxed atmosphere.

Just a fish n chips bar - nothing else. Portions are big and fish is quite good, despite tons of oiled breadcrumbs on it. I tried grilled one as well - fish was fried, just not breaded... You have choice of two types of drafts, and few wines. Staff is very nice. Suprisingly kitchen is open till .... 8PM (sic!)
