I'm Chinese myself, so I can say this, but Chinese people should stick to running Chinese restaurants. When you get Asians selling fish and chips, something gets lost in translation. I've had fish and chips in London, and there are places in Toronto that do it okay, but this place is NOT one of them.

We had the family pack for dinner and we were soooo very disappointed, the fish was lost in the greasy batter, homemade fries have been replaced by frozen fries which were soggy and greasy. Sadly disappointed, the price exuberant and the quality far below what I remember. Won't be back!!

This small take out and eat in restaurant in east Scarborough, does not disappoint. The fish and chips, hamburgers, souvlaki, onion rings, and salads (just to name a few) are always good.

A great fish and chip place can usually be judged solely on it weakest link, often the coleslaw is horrible or the chips are just nothing special but this place doesn't disappoint. Don't just come by for the free TV. Happy eating my friends

Staying in Scarborough

Neighborhood Profile
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
