Reviews of Erskineville Fish & Chips & Takeaway

i have heard some less than average reviews about this place, but my dad was visiting from interstate and he wanted a decent meal (he's a meat and veg kind of guy). thought i'd give this place a go after walking past it for 2 years always wondering.
We ordered a large chips, 3 pieces of battered barra and 6 pieces of calamari (to serve 3 adults and a child, $33). First off, i called through the order at 8:20 pm when they close at 8:30 (yes i was that painful customer!!) the man on the end was happy to take my order and said it would be ready in 10 minutes.
This was the best take away meal i have had in a while! The chips were 10/10 perfect, so fluffy and non-greasy. Same goes for the barra, definitely uses good quality fish here. Delicately flavoured and crispy battered but again non-greasy. Pleasantly surprised by the calamari too! it can be a bit touch and go, it's always a 50/50 chance you are going to get rubber bands, but the calamari here was D-licious and not chewy. Either they use fresh or good quality frozen.
Will definitely be going back! i can't believe i waited so long to try it. I think since erskineville has a trendy rep, people expect gourmet standard stuff at every place they go. If you are after a decent feed without pretension, this is the place you should visit :)
Don't be fooled by the very basic look, but don't be tempted to "eat in" either. This place is a great takeaway place, nothing more. It's very reasonably priced, the batter is crisp and the fish is tasty. I definitely recommend for a quick meal. Unless you're really hungry don't be tempted to get two pieces of fish.
Thwy are ok. Food is nice although not heavily advertised but the price are still decent and not over inflated. Erskineville has always been eorkers area but undortunately since all thia white colour people moved in we have been suffering over inflated price.
This little shop has retain sone of the workers flavour and good on them. afeter all we want qaluity and quantiry not some twisted junk presented like at some of the restaurant in the are where they serve little bit of 'something' in the middle of the plate but charge an arm and a leg for it. Luckily there are some of these establishments that deliver for their asking price. Excellent over all!! Keep these business running!!
I've never been into this place to order food.. and here's why: the food sits there under the lights and there is never anyone in there. If they start advertising hand-cut hot chips or something decent, like what the people of Erskineville deserve then i'll go in there - and i imagine a few other people would too.
