Fish and chips in a food court! Not normally where we would go, but this was worth the effort. Service friendly, prices good, food fresh and cooked beautifully. Barramundi and Salad perfect for lunch.

A fish and chip shop that you can get takeaway but also nice enough to sit down and enjoy your dinner. A nice place to take the family for a bite to eat.

Living close by, Tank is our 'go-to' fish n chip shop. The fish is always fresh with a light, crispy batter and the chips are some of the best I've had. I can't ever not order the fried calamari and it is always beautifully seasoned,...More

Living around the corner, bought the fish and chips a few times for tea and can't say I'm a fan. The chips are good and fish is undeniably fresh, but the batter was always soaking in oil.

This is a pretty simple place, serving nice grilled fish or fried fish, fish sandwiches, etc. For the area, it's fairly inexpensive too, and the fish was fresh and very tasty.

Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
