--the Shaky Shaky Fish and Chips gets the award. Family run, and run like clockwork, the fish is the freshest I've ever tasted and yes, they do list where their fish and potatoes are sourced. Portions are immense. Owners serve with smiles, which isn't easy when people are queued up out the door and the heat from the fryers is constantly in their faces. I wish I didn't have to come 'across the pond' to have outstanding fish and chips, but maybe that's another kudos to Shaky Shaky!

This place is great! A large fish & chips is around £6.50 & is more than enough to fed 2. They do gluten free cooking & lots of homemade pies & treats. There's also his secret shakey shakey seasoning hence the name!
Friendly & delicious. Go there!

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.

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'
