“Unique and Outstanding Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

Unique and outstanding. There is so much to say. The quality of the fish is excellent, and so varied. The products are cooked fresh to order and taste absolutely delicious . Shakey Shakey even identifies where the fish has been sourced from. The unique Shakey Shakey specilaity (a secret mix of herbs...I think..well it is secret) creates something special to whatever is ordered. There are also a variety of unique home made options! (You will need to visit to find out what they are!) Zarif and Ishmael are extremely freindly and cannot do enough to make sure their customers are happy with their service (we have been told...including providing gluten free). The portions are enourmous and extremely good value for money. Even if we are on the seafront we choose to walk a few roads back to go to Shakey Shakey's as the food is so good. Excellent. If you find yourself in East Kent, Shakey Shakey in Herne Bay is in our opinion definitely worth a visit.

“Best Fish and Chips Restaurant in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

If you ever visit Herne Bay or are anywhere near the South-East coast, Britannica is the place to visit. The lovely owners work tirelessly to satisfy your every Fish and Chips needs. The portions are massive, so go one or two sizes below what you usually order and I guarantee you will still struggle to finish your delicious meal. You can choose your fish: cad, haddock, plaice, etc and it will be cooked to order.
Let me share a little secret here also... With your chips you need to ask 'shakey-shakey', salt and spices mixture specially prepared by the owners. I also like the slogan on their wall 'We don't cook fast food, we prepare good food'
