“Fab fab fab!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Visited for a takeout on Good Friday, as a chef myself I get disappointed so often when eating out, had the Cod and Chips and Mushy Peas, the cod was lovely thick white flaky cod, and the batter nice and crisp, how refreshing, chips cooked properly with colour on them, instead of the sallow looking offering at the usual chip shop, and the peas, vibrant green and sweet, I travel afar for good food, and I can honestly say far surpassed Rick Steins in Padstow, and Senior's in Lytham, can't wait to go back for a return visit, let's hope the standard stays, I also wrote on Fbook wall of Fosters because I was so excited to taste fab, fresh food!!!

Well Done Fosters, keep up the good work ;-)

“greaaaat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This place does gluten free batter on sundays and is worth giving it a try! Also if you dine in, you get free refill of chips. A great way to spend a sunday.

“constantly busy and offers good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Located in East Didsbury. Fosters has had a lot of attention from locals and offers very good food although i cant consider myself who likes fish and chips a lot.
Portions are very big and people are very friendly - you can eat in or take away and won't regret

“Great fish and chips!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Can't get enough of the fish and chips here, easily the best in south Manchester. Chips are great and the fish is always so crispy and cooked to order!

“Gluten free fish and chips!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Was so excited to see a local shop that provided gluten free options for coeliacs. I called ahead to check to make sure and yes every sunday they do gf options. You can sit in or take away at the didsbury branch, good atmosphere and family friendly. Good portions and so excited they even had gf chip shop vinegar that I could have. Even treated myself to some movenpick ice cream for afters. Will definitely be back!
