Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Food is okay. But service from every woman that works in there is disgusting. They treat everyone like dirt. One girl who works there and was serving was kissing her boyfriend goodbye and ignoring customers. They treat the Uber drivers like they are slaves. Disgusting...women.More

I have visited this place many times, I have had issues with their consistency and that unfortunately remains an issue. When the main Boss is there and they cook fresh, this place has the best Fish and chips in the Neath and Swansea area hands...down. It can be really that good. Unfortunately when the main boss is not there standards slip and food is not served fresh and its a disappointing meal then. I think its important to point that out so the main boss is aware of that. If I was the manager/boss of this place I would want to be aware of that. Consistency is key especially with the current price of Fish and Chips. The staff here while they are reasonably polite and efficient, Im not sure about them to be honest, they seem to be lacking morale for some reason, no smiles on their faces etc. Maybe the manager could look into this as well. So frustrating this place as when they serve everything fresh they are the best but consistency has been an issue in the past and remains an issue which I hope they can resolve.More

21/02/23 16:45pm I have just bought chips, pie and a rissole from here and I had to write this review because I just wasted my money, the chips were old and had obviously been sitting around for a while, If your chips are getting old...and stale throw them out and cook fresh, nobody goes to chippy expecting chips to be like that, the pie (wife) ate half of hers and threw the rest in the bin, not sure what happened to the pie because it had been (I assume) microwaved but the rissole was also not great and was like it had also been sitting around for a considerable time. This is the first time I have been here for a while and it will probably be the last. I am baffled why you would serve customers anything other than fresh food when your in the food business, I'm guessing it was a quiet time but its no excuse to not serve customers anything other than fresh food.More

Long version.... Ordered on Uber eats, driver ended up being sent multiple places before he could collect our order then would be sent to another place after collecting. So we looked at canceling so we could get it ourselves, we couldn't without being charged the full amount anyway, then got a notification to say sorry but it'll be another 40min due to unforeseen issues so just went to pick it up to get it earlier. Got there before the Uber guy and by the time they got to me he arrived, we talked about me collecting it and he was apologizing for being sent places after it would be collected. I said it wasn't the end of the world just a hungry people at home. We tried to explain to the girl but she didn't seem to understand, we had another go at explaining and were met with a dirty look and a huff and the words "whatever" then as she turned her back commented to a lady working there "why would you come and collect it like" She either didn't think I would hear or that I wouldn't comment, I said "what was that love" loud enough to be heard and she ignored me, then when asked by the lady serving with her if we were having salt and vinegar sharply said no with a little grin, a pathetic show of power maybe? When it was finish she put on the counter with a "There". I said "it was salt and vinegar on them and mind your manners" with a few seconds delay as I was leaving she started shouting something about "you ordered for a delivery service......" I'd opened the door before she started so no idea how that little tirade ended. All in all poor as it gets, Franco's from now on I think.More

I cannot complain about the product, wonderful food…..but…..on two occasions I have used the app. 1st occasion they gave me the wrong order and realised this once home. I phoned and had to drive back to get amended order. 2nd occasion there was a delay...in their receiving the order on their machine. Even though I showed them the email they would not give me the order nor refund me. Was told I had no choice but so wait. Customer always right…????More

There are two outstanding fish and chip shops in Neath - and this is one of them. We have visited many times but for some reason not left a review. They are a little pricey compared to others BUT worth it. Very clean place, staff...well turned out, service good, portions good and quality outstanding. I watched the owner training a new person recently - the man is an absolute perfectionist and it shows in what comes out of his shop. He and the whole team should be very proud of themselves.More

best Fish and chips we have tried in South Wales. Hikary’s is always a good fish and chip shop and last nights cod and chips didn’t disappoint, the chips are always fresh and the fish is by far the best quality we have tried.

This was a birthday treat for me and it did not disappoint. The cod in batter was amazing - a perfect size for me (not too big as I have a small appetite) - and the batter was incredible! I was also very impressed that...since my last visit (several months ago) they have ditched the polystyrene containers for cardboard ones and now have paper carrier bags not plastic. Well done Hikarys!More
