Do not expect ambiance, but buy your food and eat at home. The service is not unnecessarily friendly in the back shop, but fast and the food is really good and worth your money. The portions are large and the food is tasty. Request less salt on your chips and more vinegar. And invite me.

For the best value Russians, Vienna's and chips money can buy. Just the place to visit for a quick "grab and go" lunch or dinner...to enjoy on the banks of the Mooiriver river

For a cheap takeaway, Rio Cafe is your best option. They serve traditional deep fried chips wrapped in brown paper. Add a russian or frankfurter or fish and you have the best meal ever!

As we call it the R10 cafee, they have the best fish and chips in South Africa, it's fresh and made to perfection, the staff is always help full and very friendly, a must try if you love "Slap Chips" Fish and Russians.

Good quality deep fried fish and chips at a reasonable price. They also stock items you might need when the supermarket is closed but the prices are average.

This is not a sit down eating experience but a good take away meal. The people are very friendly and this is for certain the best place in Potchefstroom to buy your fish and chips. Service is excellent and waiting time about 5 to 7 minutes before you walk out the door. Highly recommended
