One visited the takeaway in May, writing: "Having being recently moved into the area I have tried most of fish and chip shops in the area, and this one stood out to me the most because the service was the best I’ve had and the food.

"I had to wait for 4-5 minutes but it was very well worth it as I know it was cooked fresh and nicely, and they even gave my child a free lollipop which made his day."

"Portions are massive. Our family live local and if you were taking the food home you could easily feed 2 people on one portion. 

"Would we recommend? Definitely, just share a portion unless you are very hungry."

This restaurant can be found in High Road, Romford. 

Although not a chippie, a number of their TripAdvisor reviews have made special mention to the fish and chips they offer. 

One wrote: "Popped in for a few pints of Coors, decided to eat; fish and chips was the best I’ve eaten in a long time. Staff were very polite and attentive", following his visit in April 2023.
