“Disappointing.”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

The takeaway restaurant looked bright , clean and modern. Sadly, the haddock and chips were just awful. They fish was soaked in grease and inedible. The chips were half cooked and greasy. We had to throw them out as they as there was no way either of us could stomach them.
We didn't have anything else on the menu, but I definitely would give this place a miss!

“Food for drunk people - don't bother when you're sober !”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Situated slam bang in the middle of the Micklegate / Ouse Bridge run part of town with it's cheap bars packed full of young drunk hen and stag do's this place is guaranteed good trade when people are ending their drinking any time between 11pm and 4am.

The quality of food is so mediocre that they rely on the fact that people have no standards when they are full of alcohol. The chips are greasy, soggy and corpulant without any "bite" and the fish is soaked with oil and you'll find there's more than the average ratio of batter to fish to help preserve profit margins.

The service is matter of fact - you probably can't blame them for that given they're used to dealing with neanderthals for most of the night !!

“Dangerous and in need of closure.”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Basically this food outlet will one day possibly kill someone.
Rancid and disgusting food, the Ham cubes were certainly not ham and all but a slice was fed to the bin which I'd also imagine spat it out.
I can eat anything after a beer....not this.
Close close close..

“Disgusting!”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

This was probably the biggest culinary/dining mistake I've ever made in my life! I could have eaten in the pub next door for half the price and had better food. The service here was surly, rude and dismissive. The 'Cod' was some sort of overcooked and slimy Vietnamese river fish coated in an undercooked batter. "Salt and vinegar?", I said yes but when opened - nothing! Maybe I couldn't taste the salt or vinegar because of the amounts of rancid grease clinging to the excuse for cod and chips. DO NOT GO HERE - they do not deserve to be in business. This is the first time I have ever given such a negative review but I feel you should be warned - no matter how hungry you are or how late it is.

“Vile!!”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

This place does not even deserve one star!! The only reason why it may warrant a 5 star is in its ability to give you severe stomach pains all night long; hygiene of staff and or food must be non existent. Avoid! Its definitely not chico time!
