As an ex-Capetonian, I LOVE fish & chips, especially ‘slap’chips. And this little neighbourhood gem produces just that! I have been served this fantastic fare at two posh dinners too – bubbly in crystal and the main course wrapped in paper! Delicious! Be prepared – the queue can be rather long on Friday nights. It seems that those in the know phone their orders up front and then collect.

Ideal for a nostalgic experience of fish & chips.

If you like traditional freshly made fish and chips, this is the place to go in Linden. It
is a small shop but always busy. We ordered 2 small fish and chips. The waiting time is 15 minutes. Awesome is the only word to describe the food. The portion is so big that even my husband could not finish it all. I kept half to have for supper. It is excellent value for money.

Great fish and chips at this chipper run by a real character who always has Classic FM on which seems incongruous with the fryers and the slightly dodgy location!
Always busy, especially on a Friday night. Worth calling ahead for your pick up.
My favourite chipper in town.

English style fish and chips with mushy peas - absolutely the best! Huge portions and fresh fish. Calamari is also delicious.

People say that it is the best fish in Joburg. I'm not so sure about that. The fish was fine, but since I grew up at the coast, and have, as a pescetarian, eaten my weight in the bounty of the seas many-many times, I have exacting standards. That said, this place has some of the most delicious and soft calamari that I've ever enjoyed. Really-really good. The portions are not as enormous as one would get in the chain take-aways but it is REAL food and very filling. I prefer fried fish and can report that their batter is also lovely and not the oily mess that you sometimes get. Pleasant experience and we shall go back for more.
