Given this place a couple of tries after hearing about it but it has gotten worse each time. The last time I asked to have the chips cooked a little longer so they are not partially cooked and soggy. The waiter said he'd tell the cook but when it came out, soggy chips and fish that had a horrible taste. Had a taste like the oil hadn't been changed in ages. Too bad, the place has potential but not for me again.

Top of the menu. "Cod and Chips AED60". Or you can upgrade to 'Large' for an extra AED 9.

At these prices you'd expect a decent, flakey piece of white Cod fillet.
Unfortunately this is not what you get.

Thin, oily, brown/grey glutenous slivers of fish in very thick crunchy batter. The batter was good. The fish was not.

Everything else was fine. The chips, the peas, the sauces, etc.
All let down by the single most important ingredient in any fish and chip shop!

When we made a complaint, the 'chef' was apologetic and said that he would do better next time.
I was unconvinced.
I won't be going back. And neither will many others, judging by the number of empty tables.

Such a shame, in a prime location.
