“nothing special”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

Have been to this chippy on several occasions - mostly it is barely average. Have had to wait but I don't mind if the food is fresh, tasty and hot which it wasn't.

“Better than minnis bay fish and chips.”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Superb hot cooked fresh fish that is waiting in the hot cabinet for fast takeaway. No waiting here for them to batter and cook it as you wait. In my opinion its better straight from the cabinet.

“Top marks from me”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

This is the best fish and chip shop/restaurant that I know of. Chips are consistently excellent, all of the food I've had from here has been really spot on. Nice clean up to date dining area, the place never seems to close. The staff are superb, always very friendly and efficient. Well done Sea Bell !!!

“Not that good”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

I have tried this place twice but its still the same as in tasteless fish and chips. Same old faces sitting outside just drinking coffee. Birchington has better places to eat.

“Nothing special.”
Reviewed 12 March 2013 via mobile

Average to poor fish and chips. I don't bother with it as it's not very good. Eddie Gilbert's in Ramsgate is worth the drive. Pete's in margate is also good.
