“Really good”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

I've been going to James's for quite a while now and the staff are great and easy to get along with! The food is great and have never been unhappy with the standard, also it's my favourite chippy as the good is so nice and the price is cheap! Recommend everyone tries this place!

“If you want a bad stomach eat here.”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

This takeaway is the worst Chinese food I have ever had. The place looked cleanish and the people who were surviving seemed tidy and polite but the food is rubbish. It was hot and you got plenty but the quality is absolutely rubbish. Most of it went in the bin and my wife and I both had bad stomachs.

“Staff”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

I used to work in James' fishbar for a long time, all the food is freshly prepared which makes me wonder why other reviews accuse the fishbar of using bad quality food. Complaints about waiting for fish to be cooked are also irrelevant as the customers would also be complaining If the fish was not prepared fresh. The atmosphere is great in the chip shop as all the staff are treated very well and welcomed into the family, which also makes regular customers feel welcome. The portion sizes are also great for the prices!

“Don't judge a book by its cover!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

Although this chip shop is in Colwyn Bay, has a 3 star rating displayed in the window and doesn't look the cleanest of places it actually sells the best chips and curry sauce in the area. The portions are good value for money to!
