Yes, it's cheap. But you're getting exactly what you pay for. $4 worth of chips, had been given a lot of chips, but they were too oily and overcooked and had an odd taste to them. My partner and I had under half if what we were given before throwing them out.
Want a banana or pineapple fritter? No point coming here. In fact don't even mention it to them. She was so rude when we asked.
Don't recommend at all.

Overpriced and a large chips for $10 wasn't even enough for 2 adults. Tiny pieces of fish as well for the price. Took 40 mins for the food!

$8.50 for fish and chips sounds like a great bargain...there is a reason for that price! The chips are oven chips, flavourless and boring. The 'fish' was a small piece of batter with what looked like white mushy paste inside! Curry sauce was a jelly consistency and the mushy peas were very dry and bland.

The waitress Catherine was very friendly and polite, however the woman who I assume was the manger spoke to her so rudely in front of us that we felt very awkward to be there, hardly how customers should be made to feel?!

In addition the table we sat at was dirty and when Catherine bought our food out, the other woman followed her out practically apologising about the state of the peas and gravy...if you know it's that bad, perhaps change what you're serving!

All in all I would never eat here again. The sign above the counter claims to be 'best fish and chips in Cairns!' Do not be fooled by this. This is the first bad review I've written but it is truly deserved!

Delicious fish and chips for just about $8.50, super cheap compared to around expensive restaurant.

I've also had breakie there, 2 eggs, bacon, tomato and toast, including orange juice (you can have coffee or tea instead) for only $8.50. It's the best bacon I've ever had (not too oily and salty).

A really nice place to enjoy your morning or afternoon!!!
