Usually order from this place regularly for dinner but will never order from them again. My order arrived in good time - everything there - well most things. I ordered myself a 'Large Donner Hoaggie Supper' (Pitta bread, donner meat, chips and cheese) to which when I opened it up.. it looked like it had no chips in it. I... More

A genuinely good chip shop but used their delivery service twice now and issues both times. First time arrived 45 minutes late and lukewarm, second time 30 minutes late with mistakes and stone cold. A shame as this really is a good chipper but they'll lose business if they can't sort out the delivery side of things

Actually you were not told anything by our buisness, as you did not contact The Coral Reef, you contacted Just Eat where you have also left an untruthful review. So now here we are lets get the facts as they happened. You told Just Eat that our portion sizes had changed ,100% untrue! Now we have different arms and legs... More

I use The Coral Reef a lot and the food is mostly fine. I went in on Monday and again on Wednesday and the food i ordered was phenomenal! I did notice that the fryer was not the normal blonde guy, but the guy who normally prepares the kebabs etc! Perhaps he should be the fryer all the time and... More

Great portion sizes however the food was a bit of a let down. Ordered a munchie box and found mostly all of the contents to be dry, the chicken pakoras, onion bhaji's, and the doner meat were all dry like it had been left out for some time. Disappointing.

Very disappointed to read your review. We would rather any unhappy customer would contact us immediately to see if we could be of any assistance. We do strive as a business for excellence and customer satisfaction is our number 1 priority.
