If you want a good meal of fish & chips this is where to go. They also serve chicken and other seafood items. Most food is deep fried. Located on Topsial Rd West next to Michael Donovan Library in the west end of the city.

When we are wanting cod fish deep fried, we go to Ches's, but have been disappointed every time. There is no taste to the batter and no taste to the fish. We wonder "What happened to the taste?" We love cod and have it fried and boiled, salted and in casseroles, but the only time we like the deep fried cod is when we do it ourselves. We go to Ches's when we are hungry so that we might like the taste better. There is always lots of cod and fries but we always go away disappointed. The waiters are very friendly and the place is clean, but what's with the cupcake or cookie at the end of the meal? Who wants the fattening cupcake after all the fat in the deep fried fish? Thanks but no thanks! For those who only get deep fried cod once a year, you might not know the taste of good cod and a good batter. But I'll have cod at home from now on.

Because we were from out of town, and the big sign that greets us, asked us to let them know, they went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and the fish and chips were par excellence! for just a quick bite. You couldn't have ate more, and we both thought we got our bang, for our buck.

We had heard this place was really good so stopped by here for take out to take back to the hotel. Was not disapointed, had the shrimp and chips and some wings. The service was friendly and fast and the food was very tasty, would visit again.
