This place is a seafood store but also acts as a fish and chips take out shop. Incredibly fresh, the batter is delicious, chips are tasty, and so are the deep fried potato things. Definitely worth the stop if you're going by! Get one of their tartar sauces too.

Have eaten here now over about 7 times and only 2 have been good. The Bad, Chips mostly under cooked or soggy. Potato cakes, small, thick, half cooked and awful. Service: Ordinary. The 2 times I liked it, the food was amzing, but 2 out of 7 means I wont be returning. And I don’t think they care too much... More

I love my fish fried and crunchy, same with potato cakes and that's exactly what you get here. I'm a creature of habit so I haven't tried anything else as I'm always happy with the fish and potato cakes. The only reason I haven't given them a score of 5 is because they quite often forget to put in lemon... More

It must be always fresh as the constant comings and going testify. However even the grilled fish is a little too fried. Probably the lack of competition in the area, the convenience factor, and being under the commuters railway station have kept the flow moving.Its OK, but not great!

Conveniently located accords from Balaclava Railway Station, be sure to stop in for a fish and chip pack for only $8.50. Be weary on a Friday night to ring ahead for your food because the place would be Packed! Chips are good, salad is good and the fish is amazing battered or grilled. The people in there are so friendly... More
