“Smiffys Aviemore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Had a bit of a wait as was busy. All food seems to be cooked to order so is always fresh. Fish was excellent and the kids liked the sausage but did not like black pudding. Have to pay 25p for tomatoe ketchup which i think should be free from a chip shop. I would use again but buy your ketchup from Tescos across the road.

“Good chipper - just what we needed!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Found this chipper after a long day trip from Insch to Kinlochleven. We were in the mood for a good, hearty feed and we certainly got one here! The food was good and the sit in part of the restaurant was nice. It was clean and spacious and the staff were polite and friendly. If passing through Aviemore this is a really good option without having to wait for ages!

“Chippy time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Smiffy's is a very popular chip shop with lovely chips. A good alternative when you don't feel like a big meal in a restaurant. Quite a busy place which proves how good it is.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

Confusing queuing system for takeaway and seated area. Filthy tables and floors in the seated area. Waited 30min for our order to arrive. Food okay but not great. Poor value for money. Advice would be to avoid

“It's a fish and chip shop.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Perfect for hungry souls left starving after a seven-hour train journey. The speciality fish was haddock in breadcrumbs, and was lean and not greasy at all. It looked like everythig was cooked to order, which is annoying if yr in a rush, but great if you want a higher quality of food. Ultimately - it's a fish and chip shop.
