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.

Ordered fishcake and chips,.got my bank card out to pay only to be shouted at "cash only" by a loud obnoxious female.. Do these cash only chinese owned establishments meet with all the tax requirements? seems a little suspect to me!

I hadn’t eaten all day and heading back home along the A47 so decided to go through Eye and saw the chip shop. Cod and chips were excellent and the young chap serving was very friendly I’ll definitely go again Well worth the minor detour

Love this chip shop. It's not our local but we would rather drive further and go here! Curry sauce is amazing just like from the Chinese!! Cod is always really big nice thick pieces. Very consistent. Priced very well considering the other chip shops we...have been too. We have been going here every fortnight since January and I wouldn't go anywhere else now.More

Myself and my husband had large cod and chips and they were really lovely and couldn’t fault then. In fact they were so nice my husband said let’s have some more this week and we wish we hadn’t. The fish was slightly undercooked and the...batter was pasty and very greasy. The chips last week were lovely fresh new potato chips, but this week admittedly we went in not long after they had opened and the chips were awful, tiny bits and strange taste which could possibly be they were reheated from the previous session or the fat in the fryers was overdue for changing. Can’t beleive the same meal was so different 2 weeks running. Also the first week we finished them but this week half went in the bin as they weren’t very nice which makes then very expensive. Hopefully if we try again they will be nice like the first week,though will leave it a while before doing so.More

I can't understand why people don't like this place. I've bought fish and chips many times from here and they are delicious every time.

Visited this chippy recently whilst on holiday with my family, horrible greasy taste to everything. ‘Chicken burgers’ were battered and extremely unpleasant. The fish was edible but the batter very soggy and unappealing. Definitely worst fish and chips experience we’ve ever had.

I have been here numerous times and the chips are always excellent. They are crisp on the outside and fluffy in the middle with virtually no grease. Iv tried chips from all over Suffolk including Southwold and Aldeburgh, and Eyes are far superior. Only negative...is they don't take card payment.More

Precautions in place for COVID, quick and tasty. The battered sausage was a bit stodgy but chips are especially good. It's really popular, so try to get in there early!

My previous review suggested room for improvement, well they certainly nailed it on 14/03/2020 when we had fish and chips from there. It was spot on. The best we've ever had there, and we've been going there since 2008. Tips for newbies: it's cash-only and...there's no restaurant.More

Not for me - Nice people BUT I thought there was a strange taste to everything, sort of musty - probably due to the type of oil used to cook the food? We won't be going back.

They don't deliver. But they take orders over the phone, which makes things easier.
