Called in for a fish supper and the chips were clean, the batter nice and crispy, haddock nice and tasty. Had the deal for 2 fish suppers with glass of wine, but I wouldn't recommend the red.

Don't order the cod you will be disappointed five bites and gone , you pay less for the haddock and get a fillet that's twice the size how does that work !?? I have had fish from bog standard chain pubs and would say they are better value

Not much to look at from the outside and inside a bit dark but the fish and chips are some of the best I have ever eaten. Lemon sole was so tasty and moist and the haddock was also delicious in a very light, very crispy batter. If you like your chips crispy this is the plaice to go, slurp... More

On our latest visit to the best Chippy in Glasgow, we were once again very impressed by everything about this place. Using two Itison vouchers, three of us went as the fourth person could not make it. We could not believe how helpful and kind the staff were, even offering to give us a takeaway to make up for the...

We found The Chippy Doon The Lane quite by accident, and the humour name is what made us need to give it a look. The location is poor - situated in a dingy lane full of rubbish, with only a paper sign prompting you to walk up a few flights of dimly-lit, grey stairs before you step into The Chippy.... More

A hidden treasure just off Buchanan Street in Glasgow. Good menu including variety of things for those who don't eat fish. I enjoyed the Southern Fried Chicken. The portions are good and the chips are made freshly with real potatoes! Good value- menu not overly priced.

Heard good things about this place and took the plunge before a train journey. It is a bit hidden away but the signage along Buchanan Street is pretty clear, just follow the directions. Only three staff to serve the whole restaurant so they are spread somewhat thin. The marquee area was not too popular on a cold day but I... More

Went for dinner with my partner, we got put into a balcony/gazebo room because we didn't book a table .. the main room looked cosy but the balcony/gazebo room looked miserable and run down.. it was cold even though there were heaters, The waitress even closed the door to the main room as I'm assuming the draft was coming in...
