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.

What's with all the bad reviews here? i've been here a few times, Zero complaints so far. Not the best fish and chips in the world but it's good for what you pay for.

Appalling, utterly appalling. Went through the till and ordered a fish. 12 minutes later a group of lads entered and ordered. One of the orders was a fish. The 'Cook' then put two fish in the fryer. When asked when I would get what I...had paid for I was in formed that the fish had just gone in. It isn't ess ache one tee service - it is no service at all. I left without even asking for my money back. Won't get fooled again.More

After Bretts and Catch/Fisherman's Wife/Bryan's closed, I asked friends for recommendations for an alternative fish and chip shop and Kirbys name came up several times. I was a bit wary, having seen some lukewarm reviews on Tripadvisor, but my friends were right. The haddock was...beautifully cooked with a lovely light, crispy (but not too crispy) batter and the chips were fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside. The staff were also really friendly and the shop was clean and well designed. Will definitely be back!More

I have reviewed Kirby’s before absolutely praising them, but on collecting from there last week for myself and partner, my review this time goes the other way. The size of the fish and a few scraps of chips (18/20) in both portions to add to...the £8:50 price each portion I am totally livid. The staff were turning customers away saying at 6:30 pm they had run out of chips, but I had ordered and paid got my order, got home, and felt totally let down from many many visits over the years. I rang them when I got home, and the promise of a call back from the manager the next day was never forthcoming, also calling again leaving a voice message on Monday. Sadly because of this, poor portion and the non call back, there are plenty of other great fish and chip shops to use.More

Cooked fresh to order. Great fish n chips. Currently £10 for fish chips n peas. Wait time is reasonable as it's cooked fresh. Friendly staff.

We use Kirby’s regularly. Fish always cooked to order - very tasty and meaty too - chips as well! Friendly and obliging staff - what more to ask. Probably best chippy in North Leeds since being under “newish” management. Kirbys have seen off most competition....Will continue coming back for more.More

Out of two visits it’s been terrible both times. First visit, food was shocking. The fish cake had clearly been sat there for a while because it was dry and hard. I don’t live far so retuned for a refund This time it was the...Service, too manny people serving one person and no one knows what the other has been told. So the order is not correct - ripped off. Too annoyed to return it. And the lady that fry’s couldn’t be more miserable and unwelcoming if she tried.More

Local and the good prices. The fish is cooked on demand so is hot fresh and well cooked. The chips also always taste very good . To conclude it's the ideal local, traditional fish and chips shop.

We tried them last week, thought they were cooked to perfection. They were so good we went back on Saturday for more!! The second visit was as good as the first. They actually cooked them whilst we waited. Lovely staff, friendly and helpful and good...interaction with the customer. Wish it was nearer to our home address.More

Thank you for this fantastic review.

Very Poor and NOT fresh chips If you like fresh chips cooked from fresh potatoes then this is NOT the place to go The chips are bought in large plastic bags and refried. This gives a soggy grey chip. Come on Kirbys get a potato...peeler and chipper. Use fresh Yorkshire spuds and customers will start leaving great comments and spending hard earned cashMore

Having purchased Fish and Chips then returned home.. The chips were dark and greasy. I knew they'd been double fried. I rang the shop and told them and the fella confirmed they had been re fried. At nearly £7 for fish n chips you don't...expect this Rubbish. They were Distgusting and were thrown in the bin. This used to be a good local fish shop but since it was taken over a several years ago its not as good. I mean who refries their chips?? Sometimes the fish tastes wierd too I'm not sure if they're trying to cut corners by giving a cheaper alternative but I definitely won't be going back in a hurry... Get your act together it's not all about making money. Look after your paying customers!!!More

Been using this fish shop for years. It was great before it was taken over a couple of years ago. Bought fish and chips to take home and the chips were greasy and dry. They had been re-cooked. I rang to tell them that they...were rubbish and said they'd been double cooked. I was told to my astonishment "that's what we do". A lady came in and asked for 2 battered sausages, as they only had 1 the fella took the 2 cooked u battered ones dropped them in batter and re cooked them! Clearly common practice a double helping of grease! Unfortunately the woman did not see what he was doing. As much as I hate waste I like my food edible especially when your paying over £6 plus for them.. Not good practice. Don't cook so many chips and when they're no good throw them away.. We are PAYING CUSTOMERS !!!More
