“Excellent takeaway”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Tried this for takeaway fish & chips. It has only been open for about 8 weeks and is very good value, with particularly welcoming service. Well worth a visit/open on Sundays.

“As good as it gets”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

Just back. Reviews convinced us to try this place. Not been open long and not very big BUT warm welcome, food cooked to order and of high quality. Fish really good and tasty. Chips as they should be and mushy peas taste right. Try this place. Good value and high quality.

“Service as good as you will get at Disney!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Went into York to visit family and paid this fish and chip restaurant a visit. The premises were very clean and we were give a warm welcome on arrival. Staff could not do enough for us and although it was "fish n chips" the food was lovely. Staff very keen to offer prompt service and it was pleasant to have them offering refills instead of me almost having to stand up in front of waiter in order to get some service! Excellent value and there was even a choice of ice cream flavours and meringue which my wife and sister in law indulged in. Lovely atmosphere, good value and most importantly of all the customer service was brilliant. Would highly recommend.

“Wonderful food and service”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Visiting York is a great experience and the choice of restaurants is wide and many. We visited here on an evening and were met with warm, friendly helpful staff. I am very fussy when eating fish and chips in England as I am spoilt for choice where I live in Scotland but this was as good as any near me.

The fish was cooked in a lovely tasty batter and the portion sizes were generous. The chips were crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. I went for curry sauce and it was a nice sweet sauce.

The food was excellent and the staff could not have been more helpful
