“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

I came here for lunch with my father in law and it was first class from start to finish. The service received was second to none and the food was devine. Would recommend anyone to give it a try the best fish and chips by far :-) xx

“Fantastic service times, staff and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

I've lived in the area all my life and after many visits from myself, family and friends I can safely say it's one of the best chippys around.

Family run for many years, they have always provided very good quality take out fish and chips along with a great service.

if you decide to dine in, the restaurant is homely and the staff welcoming. The food is served quickly and freshly made every time I've been. The family love dining here and look forward to every visit. Portions have always been generous on every visit with the price in the range expected of fish and chip restaurant/take away yet with the added bonus of all the above.

Cannot find a fault and will carry on visiting.

“Family run business at it's best!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

As usual had a wonderful meal at the Skyliner. The fish, as always, was very tasty and a really nice texture with crispy batter. The chips and curry sauce are second to none. Always highly recommended, a restuarant that still keeps that personal touch with it's customers.

“Not good at all”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I visited this fish and chips restaurant about 2 weeks ago for a takeaway. It was around 8pm in the evening and was quite busy. The fish was cooked fresh but the batter was very crumbly, unevenly covered and not stuck well to the fish. The chips were old and quite cold too which I had to reaheat in the microwave when I got home. I only live 5 minutes away and really didn't expect such bad quality from such a highly rated restaurant. It comes nowhere close to the great fish and chips I have had in other places in Leeds. Overall a bad experience I'm afraid.

First of all may I say how disappointed I am you did not enjoy your fish & chips. As you can see from our other reviews we are normally "very good" or even "excellent" so I am shocked to see your comments.
I wish you had given us the opportunity to rectify the situation on the night or the next day , I would be grateful if you would contact me direct at the restaurant so we can put things right, and I'm sure we can change your opinion of our fish & chips.
Regards
Alvin Meehan (owner)
