This is the second time we have had fish and chips from here and both times the plaice has been overcooked and dry. Considering that the fish is cooked to order there is no excuse. Having said that the cod was fine and the chips were OK. Service is good.

Great food received tonight as always! Slightly spoilt by the staff members working, swearing (at a very loud volume) and hitting other member of staff In Front of many customers who was just at shocked as I was witnessing this. Great food! Sort out your customer service and your attitude when in front of the general public...

Have only ever used the takeaway, not the restaurant, but have enjoyed everything I've sampled and usually quick and hot.

I've been going to the Deep Blue for a long time, not very often, but my family and I would get a takeaway every now and again - but we've never used the restaurant. The staff have always been very friendly and efficient. From what we have seen, the fish and chips always go in fresh and are cooked while... More

The haddock looked and tasted like it was reheated, chips were almost a mash, could hardly taste the vinegar. Defo sticking to favourite Marino's.

Came here as I live local but always pass it and never go in, the staff are really friendly and the prices are very reasonable. It's your typical fish and chip place, the food was really nice. I would go here again and might even try the restaurant next time.

Generous portions and great fish and chips. Good value for money. Only issue was that the wait was so long! We waited a good 30 minutes for our order (only 2 portions of fish and chips) which seemed very long....

I've been here a few times and it's no doubt the best fish I've had since moving to Canterbury. Everytime I've went I've had exceptional service as it was always a tall blonde gentleman working everytime I've been. I wasnt going to leave this review but I felt I had to as it upset me a lot as I to... More

One of the best places in Canterbury for chips, always fresh!! The place is normally packed so if it's a large order ring it through first.

We were visiting Canterbury for 2 nights. One of these nights was our friend's birthday and he wanted fish and chips. We checked on line and this had a good review. Excellent, large meals. Gorgeous fish and scampi, best chips ever. Rebecca serving us was helpful, welcoming, friendly.
