“World Famous? Not even best in the Street!”
Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

Initially impressions are positive as the shop is clean and well presented - but that's the end of it. A 20 minute wait was closer to 40 and service seemed very disorganised. The food could make up for that but unfortunately the fish is greasy and a little slimy (how fresh?) with a "glow in the dark" batter. Chips are fair only. In short.....avoid, there are better options in the same street.

“I wish I'd read reviews first”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

While not the worst fish and chips I've eaten, they definitely did not rate terribly highly. The flathead didn't have the typical fresh delicious taste I have had in many places. My daughter's salt and pepper squid looked pale and uninviting. After finishing our meal our comment to each other was, "GREASY, YUCK!!" The cost was very high...but I guess that's what happens in holiday areas. Definitely not worth the money, definitely nothing to rave about and we definitely will not be returning!!!

“Qunitessential seaside experience”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Some of the best take away seafood and chips ever. We regularly return and are never disappointed, although the queues are longer in the holiday season. There is an advantage to being a local and choosing the best times though.

“World famous - seriously?! More like world's worst! *RUN*”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

First time was for my husband's birthday and it actually made him violently ill, not to mention how oily the food was. Figured we would give it another shot a few weeks later, thinking it was a bad night... after having to wait for over 45 minutes for our order - we arrived back at home (2 minutes away) to find we had stone cold food - disappointed would have been an understatement - especially with your pricing (and that wait)! We will NEVER go back which is a shame as we only have 2 local fish shops - thankfully the other one is way better! This would have to be the yuckiest food I have ever been served!

“Oh dear...”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Be afraid, be very afraid...with seafood you need to go somewhere decent where you know the produce is fresh. Enough said.
