“Best chip shop in North wales”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

This place is always packed but service is speedy so don't let loads of people inside put you off. Best fish in North Wales. And chip portions are massive. I love this place.

“The Best Value and Food for miles”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Couldn't improve anything, excellent value, food and service. Traditional Fish n Chips or Chinese worth every penny.

Always friendly helpful service. The crowd outside the door waiting for food tells you everything, yes you may wait a couple of minutes but the staff never stop working. This many people can't be wrong.

Tried the local Ffrith n Chips because they said they were the best, they should wish. Don't waste your time going anywhere else.

We've been coming to Prestatyn for 25 years and always use here now.

“Large portions, enjoyed the food, shame about charging for plastic forks”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

First visit, it is a chippy and chinese run by chinese people so authentic. Good signs with lots of customers and the portion sizes are very generous for the money - all great. Food was good too. Only downside is the charging of 5p per plastic fork and 15p for chopsticks. You spend £30 and ask for forks/chopsticks as you are away on holiday and they then ask you to pass over 5p for a fork - leaves a bad taste which is a shame - just a little customer service would go a long way! Perhaps it was the heat of summer!

“Gone down hill :(”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Ive been going to James' Fish bar for years now! Always loved it couldnt fault it and the large portions were definitely a hit. However, had my usual the other week and discovered they had changed their beef, it was awful i couldnt finish my meal. Anyway thought id try again see of ot was just an "off" day, tried something different...and thay was awful.too, had salt and pepper chicken, it was dry, very chewy and tasteless.
