This one and their branch in Newport are both excellent. Often have an Icelandic supper (big portion of delicious fish).

Recently bought ( an expensive) fish supper from this well known establishment The Silvery Tay has had a good reputation over the years, and I feel it is trading on that reputation rather than quality food The last few times I have bought food from this shop the chips have been undercooked, to the point were the middle of the...

Excellent fish and chips. Fish is always fr ah and meals are cooked to order Which can mean a slight wait but it's worth it. Big portions but sometimes they do run out of fritters!

Everything is cooked to order which means that you have to wait but given the quality of the food it's well worth it. I always get a fish supper which is always fantastic. It tastes great and fresh. Both fish and chips are very well prepared served in a nice cardboard container. Sauces, salt and vinegar are included. No where... More

Best chippy in Dundee! Really tasty and does home delivery and always fast service in store! Only wish they would do flame grilled burgers too as they only offer battered burgers!

Best fish and chips I have ever had yet. What a welcoming change from whatever they call the fish they sell in Alberta. Worth the travel and worth the money, it isnt expensive at all.

Really nice Friday night supper whilst on holiday in Dundee. Lovely light and crispy batter and fresh chips. Fish meaty and flaky. Thoroughly enjoyed by all. It was busy but didn't have to wait long as staff are efficient and also friendly. Nicest fish I've had in a while. Thank you.

This is strictly a takeaway restaurant in Newport-on-Tay. Again, highly recommended by locals, we stopped in to get dinner to bring back to the cottage. Massive portions and amazing value! The fish was so fresh and not greasy. The Standard Battered or Breaded Haddock included 2 giant pieces of fish on top of a bed of chips. We could have... More
