Fish & Chips served the traditional way is just the start of what we offer. Great pizza, kebabs, burgers and a huge chip shop selection all made to the highest of standards makes us Musselburghs busiest and best takeaway. Don't believe it just come down and see for yourself!

Good tasty food

We sometimes visit this place for a quick takeaway for dinner and always enjoy what we order. The staff are very happy at work and nothing is too much trouble. Prices are reasonable and given its a chip shop the food isn't greasy and soggy like other chip shops. Fish supper is yummy and so are the... read 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.

The driver's face was as miserable as the food was when it finally arrived. (Well over the hour) He went to Prestonpans instead of Cockenzie as written on my Takeaway.com order. He didn't read the instructions to go round the back either. I was given the wrong drink and I asked for chilli sauce and a garlic sauce. One-I think-... More

I have used Coral Reef for a number of years and always thought the food & service was better than its competitors. They recently extended their menu and I tried their small chicken kebab; fantastic!!!! Lots of nicely grilled chicken, plenty salad and sauce with tye usual pitta bread.....the nice surprise was the little side of chips. Having tried other... More

Well what to say. We had been starving and looking for a chippy since South Queensferry, so when we got into Musselburgh and saw this place open we thought we would get a feed. Fish and Chips was advertised in the window as £4, or for £6 you could have a fish supper.. so we opted for the latter.. Oh... More

The Coral Reef is a chippie plus! Apart from doing great chips, excellent fish and the standard chippie fair, their pizzas and kebabs are outstanding. Friendly, busy staff add to the overall picture - just a very good chippie!
