The batter on the fish is so light and flavoursome. It is great!! The fish supper is a bit expensive for a piece of fish and chips. But i would go back again because of the quality. Do make a reservation i've seen multiple people being send away at lunchtime because they did not have a reservation.

Hidden just off Buchanan Street, its the perfect place to grab a chippy in a cosy spot whilst being in the centre of Glasgow. Most importantly, the fish is FRESH, chips are legit - chunky, crisp and fluffy and the portion sizes are more than enough for one person (we actually shared one fish supper between 2 people). All comes... More

We have been several times and to other of James' establishments so was surprised at being bumped at short notice and the fact the girl didn't care when I said we wouldn't book again. Take not James I will not

fish and chips is usually a take away dish, didn't think the quality of the food or service justified the prices and didn't enjoy eating out of a paper box! It is adequate if you really want fish and chips but many better places to spend the same money on a meal I'm afraid - chippies of the Scottish coast... More

I booked an Itison voucher for my mum and a friend to eat here before a show in the Pavilion for her birthday. Whilst I wasn't in attendance, the feedback was that the food was great, potentially best fish suppers they had ever had, however, the service provided by staff was nearly non-existent, and marred a happy night. Also, no... More

I've been disappointed so far looking for a really good fish supper in Glasgow. I'd heard good things about this place so decided to give it a try for lunch. As it's part of a chain (owned by the same people who own Rogano's Oyster Bar round the corner) part of me wanted to be disappointed but once my food... More

Good chippy food, service good, wouldn't pay full prices as it is basically chippy food, but plenty of offers available
