“Evening dinner”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Ate at top gun while visiting Cardiff for 4 days. The diner is clean and welcoming, lovely fresh fish and nice chips.
It's a takeaway also, so take your pick.
A little slap on the wrist for advertising "hand made mayonnaise" when it came in a carton but it in now way detracts from the fact that it's a lovely place to eat.
Thank you for a great meal.

“Fish and chips at its best.”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

I have been to Top Gun a few times now, and have never had a bad experience. The food is fresh, served very hot and very tasty. They are often very busy so you may have to wait a bit longer than usual but that's to be expected if you want to eat on the Bay.

The chips are tasty, the fish very fresh and the portions are ample sized. However, one little criticism is with the chicken burger. It is extremely good but the burger bun is almost twice the size of the chicken so you are left with large mouthfuls of just bread! Either charge an extra pound and put an extra half of a chicken portion in there, or get smaller buns for the chicken burgers.

Other than that, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and it really is a lovely little restaurant for fish and chips.

“Best Cod and chips in a long time”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Coming to Top Gun was one of my earliest dates with my now girlfriend. Apart from the amazing company on that early December evening last year, this place gave me a food experience like no other. The fact that there was a soundtrack featuring crashing waves and seagulls in the background created a very real feel of being by the sea, the same was true of the booths which resembled the little huts by the seaside. It had been a while since I had fish and chips but this was excellent. The Cod was melt in the mouth quality and the batter was perfect, crispy and tasty but not greasy. The chips were a revelation in themselves, best I have tasted in years, fluffy on the inside and yet nice and brown (not burned) on the outside just as good chips should be. To finish there was mushy peas and a tub of tartare sauce, together they complemented the fish and chips perfectly. All told and after taking into account the price this was a a fabulous meal and evening.

“Nice food, poorly presented with far too long waiting times.”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

First visit, looking forward to it as gluten free option available. What a disappointment!!! Order taken quickly by a very nice waitress after that all down hill. Wait for food 25 minutes for two meals!! Staff appeared under pressure. Other customers arrived and left as no one took their order. Our fish was good but chips barely warm and the mushy peas were non existent, just watery liquid a very suspect green colour with a few peas in it. Music too loud and bill incorrect. Waitresses being sent out with food for non existent customers!! A very bad experience. Will probably never go back and certainly wont recommend it.
