I ordered a fish burger, a vege burger and $5 chips. The fish burger came with meat on it, which meant I couldn't eat it. There was no warning that there was a meat patty on it when I ordered it.

Nothing has changed since Ward moved to Australia and the quality of the food here is just as good.

The fish wasn't fresh yet costing fresh prices, the chips were greasy. The staff were rude and spoke to us like we were an inconvenience, i wouldn't go back. We through out the fish and chips and went to a cafe.

This is my local chippie, always nice on a Friday night after a long week. Cheap and generous serving sizes with little fuss. The food is fresh and good and prepared pretty quickly considering how busy they can get. They also keep the premises nice and clean which is pretty important.

Yuck, slow, rude and expensive!! Drive up to Corstorphine and get your fish and chips from cookies takeaways - they are a million times better,faster and cheaper! If you think this fish and chip shop is good you have never had good fish and chips. I'm so disappointed in my experience!!
