We were unsure at first because of the mixed reviews, but this was one of the nicest fish and chips we have had in a long time.

We got the special, cod and chips, mushy peas, tartare sauce for $24 and this was plenty for two. Real chips and a thick piece of fish. What more could you ask for.

The place was spotless and plenty of vinegar, salt and ketchup containers to go around. The ladies toilet was clean too.

This is what happens when you forget to read TripAdvisor reviews before going to a restaurant; you end up going to The Traditional Chip Shop for a bad experience.
The only traditional thing at this place is the fish and chips wrapping in paper.
The chips are so oily that they are not eatable.
We ordered fish and chips and Salmon and chips.
The salmon was a small very thin slice grilled to death so that it could not become dryer than it was served. Combined with the awful chips; my wife ended only trying but not eating any of her order. My cod was OK but nothing special.
Definitely not a place we will ever return to.

Normally don’t write reviews but this is the worst! Frankly want my money back.. chips are dry and old oil tasting! I’m surprised because it was really busy people must like the food. How can people stuff up something as simple as chips???

If you are in need of some proper chippy chips this is the place to go! Traditional chips and a decent battered sausage and some mcDonalds Irish curry sauce, what more could you ask for. Fairly pricey but you are in Australia after all!

I'd seen this place for a while, the Cafe looks good and smells good! However $24 for cod, fish and mushy peas which were tasteless and soggy. Way too much undercooked batter on the fish which made it taste of nothing! The chips were soggy too. Great disappointment after so much anticipation! Great concept poorly executed!
