“Hit and miss”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013 via mobile

So hit and miss its not worth it. One day you can get lovely food, the next it's cold and bizarre. Don't bother.
I occasionally fancy curry sauce to dip my chips on, so I order a pot and they deliver a pot usually, today they delivered the curry sauce in a box with my cold food swimming in it. Yuk

“Good but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Food was good for takeaway, but nothing spectacular. Decent price. Portions were generous. We had the chicken on a bun dinner with coleslaw (includes a huge portion of chips) and ordered a smoked sausage for our 18-month old son. Lettuce on sandwich was somewhat wilted, coleslaw was good. Our son loved the sausage and pretty much inhaled it.

“Poor service from Rapido and Just Eat”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

2 hours to deliver fish and chips from broughton street to Stockbridge! I could have walked there and back twice faster! Just Eat confirmed my order and stated 20 mins for delivery when I queried this with Rapido they said it was just eats fault, just eat when spoken to said it was Rapidos fault for confirming the wrong delivery time?! The manager at Rapido continued to place blame on Just Eat and tell me the food was on its way. After over 2 hours wait I cancelled my order and got a refund. In this industry you need to accept when you are wrong and not place blame on others. Even if it was Just Eats mistake 2 hours for fish and chips to be delivered less than 2 miles away is ridiculous! Won't be back until they get their timings right and their so called customer service improves!

“We need more quality after hours food places like this - well done !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

Excellent place.

Quality home made food, lots of variety, they cater for many tastes.

The deep fried products are of a different quality from a normal chippie, the chips were excellent... superb! really tasty.

The crew were polite and pleasant - very impressed.. keep up the good work.

“Huge disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012

Really rude when I phoned to tell them the cheesecake I bought was frozen!

They used to be great, always a bit expensive but I didn't mind because the quality was good. Sadly they have deteriorated over the years.

Don't take my word for it. Go and try it for yourself.
