“Dearest imitation chips”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

The chips are very poor. Expensive chip shop. Not a customer focused shop. Small hard chips. A waste of money. Standards have dropped dramatically.

“Needs to get better”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

Went here for food today and thought it would have improved since last been there but defo not, the women that work there did not look happy at all, and what i dont get the women that took our money had rubber gloves on and then touched the food after taking the money so whats the point

The chips were not that good but the other part of the meal was lovley, The juice i was shocked at for a can its like 90p but in the fridge some cans say 3 for £1.00

“Absolutely awful!!!!”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

After the huge price increase I expected great things, Boy was I disappointed!! 2 small fillets of fish which was more batter than fish and I wouldn't say an adequate portion of chips. It was daylight robbery. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT I normally go to Robertos in Airdrie why didn't I on this occasion. The owner is so miserable and why do the staff wear gloves, they touch the food being served, then take your money and use the till. Poor hygiene standards this is one establishment that most definitely won't be getting any future business from me. A tip to anyone stay in the car and drive to Airdrie quality, standard and cost not comparable...

“Poor - Won't visit again”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

We were very let down over the quality of the carry out we had from the Fountain Chip Shop recently.
We had 3 Special fish suppers, which were lacking fish but had lots of breadcrumbs. We all wondered if these were actually haddock and not something else to cut costs.....
One of our party had Scampi which was nice enough. He also tried the fish and was very disappointing at only being able to taste breadcrumbs.

First we have been to the Fountain Chippy for a good few months.... now we wont be there again!!

“Good & bad at times”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

Ive got take away out here couple times and sometimes is good or bad but the chips and chicken tikka wraps are lovely. The portion size is very small and i don't know how they get away with it at the prices they charge.

The 2 girls that are on the checkout seem to have gloves on when handling food but use the same gloves to take money so thats one point in bad hygiene
