“Not a proper chippy”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Large portions and friendly service, but its just not very good fish and chips.

Fish takes quite a while to cook (Im happy for fish to be cooked to order) compared to many other places indicating the oil isnt as hot as it could be. When food is recieved the fish tastes a bit foisty and has a slightly nushy texture.

Certainly not firm white flakes that you get in other establishments (unfortunately outside Sheffield).

I'll eat there, but only for convenience sake, rather than the quality of the food drawing me in.

“Best chippy in Sheffield”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Really pleased to be living close to this chippy, It sells delicious food and is consistently good. Always packed, expect to queue out of the door of you get there at teatime. I highly recommend the lightly battered Cod! Since they started using new potatoes like many other chip shops have the chips aren't quite as nice as they used to be but they're still very tasty. Service with a smile every time :)

“One of the seven wonders of Sheffield”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Consistently good fish and chips with service to match, time and time again. The owners are friendly and the food is always fresh. Make the journey, you won't regret it! Check the opening times before you visit.

“Superb Cod”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

It was Friday evening and the queue was outside the door, but the wait wasn't that long but well worthwhile. As it was my first visit I asked for small chips and fish with. curry sauce. There is a choice of fish and you need to ask for it on entry.
The fish was superb big chunks of white fish and the best curry sauce I've tasted.
The staff are very pleasant and efficient.
I've already started telling my friends how good this is. So it gets my recommendation.

“High hygiene, perfect fish and chips.”
Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

I grew up eating fish and chips in Grimsby and consider myself well informed when it comes to eating and cooking fish. This place truly delivers the best around.
