Chippy's on Queen has a new (?) side row of seating where you can watch them cook - each fish is dipped into batter when ordered and deep-fried. While the fish is a bit thin for my taste, the coating is very tasty, and with the lovely tartar or garlic mayo or curry dipping sauce, the combo makes the trip worthwhile. Scallops were alright, the shrimps were better, and the halibut was really thin.
Staff are usually very friendly. We saw a customer being taken to the back for the staff washroom since he really needed to use the loo - this being a takeout place, I was impressed the staff were so accommodating.
I agree that this is pricey for what you get, but you're in a busy spot on Queen right opposite the Trinity Bellwoods Park. Expect some wait time, and if no seating and you are there during warm weather, cross the street to find seats in the park and enjoy the outdoors.
