Good quality products just all tasted like old oil. Fryers may need a clean! Would like to think we will try again one day.

Plenty of great fast food places on Southbourne Grove so give this place a miss. Chips I got were reheated and recycled from a Just Eat order which had gone wrong. They were inedible.
