Got the battered fish supper and it was really good. Girlfriend got a cheeseburger supper and said it was really good as well. Chips are tasty. I normally get a phone order. You wait up to an hour but it’s worth the wait. Best chipper...More

I think this is probably the best chippy in Dundee, always a queue and reasonably priced. Ideally located if you have a car near the hospital.

Good fresh food, always busy and reasonably priced. Fish is cooked to order. Only criticism is that they don’t do chips and cheese

I wouldn't have thought so. The shop is a take away and not very big. However it has a big window and plenty places outside where a dog could be safely tied up and easily seen from inside.
