“Greasy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Lived locally for t he past 45 years.

Chips here always seem exceptionally greasy but the portion size is good. This doesn't make them good value though.

The Chinese menu is the normal sort of thing but the quality is not terribly good and the sauces always seem to me to be "gloopy". They make my wife ill so I haven't used them for quite some time - longer than the date of my visit suggests.

I'd recommend going elsewhere. There's another down by the Malvern Hotel a little further down the hill along Winchester Road.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Good chippy for use on a regular basis. Don't go upon just opening though - because they re-fry the lunchtime chips and they are like bulletts. If you want good portions of chinese or fish and chips well worth a try.

“Very hit & miss”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Oil is not changed so anything fried such as chips can taste awful. Curry is a bit like paste too. Cooked too quick so a bit bland.
