“Better than you expected”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

A friend fish and chip with the giantic portion to feed your hungry party. Nothing beat a freshly cooked fish and good choice of salad.

“Excellent quality fish n chips”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

While this isn't the closest fish and chip shop to me I will travel the extra distance to get my fish and chips from here because it is by far the best in the local area. Although a little pricey, the fish is all fried fresh. I always have the cod and ask for it skinless and it's always a good chunky piece that tastes fantastic. Queues on friday evenings are always long but that's the price of quality. I could go to my local and be served instantly or chose Aquarius and wait upto 20mins. I always choose the latter. Wish they would introduce a loyalty card !

“chips ok fish ok but don't think its fast food”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

This is a review from someone who has eaten here for over 10years and I still can't believe I bother.Don't get me wrong the food is ok but it must be the slowest chip shop in England.If you pop in for a portion of chips on your way home from work don't think you'll be in and out like NORMAL chip shops,you'll still be there 30minutes later while they serve all the people that are waiting for fish to be cooked,it's a joke.If you pre-order good luck you won't be in and out like other chip shops,you'll still be there 15mins after you arrive,To sum, up food ok but not as fantastic as the management think it is,service bad and check your order if you order sauce etc as its often forgotten in your bag. As a passing thought I notice the management do not reply to the comments on here,enough said living off his reputation...I won't even bother mentioning the mega over priced chippy they opened in Ruislip which barely lasted a year cause the locals smelt a rat..(not literally)

“Excellent chippie”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

As always the food was excellent. Chips appear to be made from fresh rather than frozen potatoes. The service can be dodgy. Don't understand why it takes so ling fir pre-orders to turn up. Also grilled fish can be a bit cold.
