“Award winner”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Flash in the Pan is a very popular award winning chip shop. I wish it had a proper waiting area with seats or proper benches rather than the often cold windowsill but that is a minor consideration. Food is good.

“Disappointing, very disappointing!!”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Completely disappointed with Flash in the Pan, it may have been the best chippy around a while back but it has seriously gone downhill. Had Banana Fritters, like chewing leather honestly, batter was chewy and thick, doughy and soggy, very poor, the interior menu boards could do with a serious facelift, dull and uninspiring. Come on Flash in the Pan, strive to get back that reputation you once had, get your act together, look at the competition and learn........... nuff said.

“Northern Irelands Top Take-Away”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

I have had the pleasure over recent months to be introduced to this gem of a Chip Shop in Ballymoney. The staff here are great and are very hard working to deliver professional standards of local service and local food. I am from Derry City myself and I can safely say that there is not one 'Fish & Chip' shop serving food of this standard in the Derry area.

To give you an example of the quality of food, the fish is bought in fresh each and every day and seasoned and battered to order. This is the same for the onion rings and many other of the coated items which are on offer. The vegetables and salad items are all freshly prepared on a daily basis and the owners favour REAL grated cheese as opposed to the plastic like processed cheese used by many other establishments.

There are also nice differences in the menu, including a Chicken Maryland and Piri Piri chicken which is made using a freshly griddled chicken fillet. Absolutely Fabulous and the staff here deserve recognition for their excellent work!!

If you are in Ballymoney or Travelling up around the North Coast, put this place on the map for the journey as you will not be disappointed. I would highly recommend it if you are in the mood for a "chippy tea". I see that others on here are saying that it is more over priced than other local establishments. It is not that different from other local places, and you receive the added value of fresh, locally sourced meals that are cooked from scratch by award winning fryers and cooks.

In my eye's I would pay a lot more for this service than what is priced on the menu at 'Flash In The Pan'. Well Done guys and keep up the good work!!

Reviewed 15 August 2013

This is a chippy. AT times when reading reviews that hard to remember. They do a decent takeaway but i found it more expensive than normal and didnt fee there was any noticeable diffrence in quality. Overall its grand.
