The UK's first 100% vegetarian fish'and chip shop. Fast food takeaway with vegetarian (mostly soy-based) versions of classic chip shop dishes: battered fish, pies, pasties, battered sausage, chips, curry sauce and mushy peas. Also serves Indian meals (with vegan naan), burgers, pizzas (vegan cheese available), and various side dishes. Friendly and enthusiastic staff who are passionate about vegetarian food. Most menu options are vegan - no eggs used but some items contain dairy (e.g. paneer). Seating available but it is primarily a takeaway.

Visit often... - Edit

This place has good variety junk food. I have only tried the vegan meat feast, and the battered vod and chips. The fake fish is really delicious as is the pizza. The only thing have found with this place is that the food isn't consistently good and they can get your order wrong, so alwayd check. But a great concept & food!

Pros: Lots of vegan variety

Cons: Inconsitency

fun staff great food - Edit

Cheap food and it's mostly vegan. The owners are funny, chatty and passionate about the food. I had the vod and chips and my boyfriend had tandoori vicken both was amazing. Chips are like proper chippy chips without the grease and the tandoori is super tasty without using yoghurt. Get the curry sauce too!

Pros: cheap , tasty, lot of choice

fish and chips were unreal - Edit

Amazing food!! I had Donner Kebab and 2 chicken legs and my partner had a battered "Vod" and oh my god the Vod tasted so much like fish he actually got scared and went to ask if it's vegan hahhaa the chicken legs also fooled me, the texture was like chicken breast! Kebab was okay, tasty but not the same texture as actual kebab. We can't wait to go back, the staff were super friendly and explained what each food was made from and they were really friendly.

Pros: fish, chicken, lamb, beef, kebab plus pizzas and w

Top Notch Food - Edit

The guys that run the shop are brilliant and that makes for a very enjoyable experience. The place is clean with seating for 10 or more. The food is great and reasonable priced. I tried the fish & chips, small donner and a pizza with Vegan cheese - total price £15. It is amazing how real the food looks!

Pros: Great food, Friendly Staff, Good value

Cons: No t-shirts for sale

Amazing traditional chip shop food with mainly vegan menu - Edit

This place is amazing. It's layout is the same as your typical British chip shop and you're spoilt for choice with the menu. I had vod and chips with curry sauce and it was super affordable and amazing quality. They do real chips instead of fries which is a big plus! I'm definitely coming back to try their vegan pizzas. To top it off the owner Vijay is lovely and super passionate about his business and veganism. Highly recommended for everyone 😊

Pros: lots of vegan options , owner is very passionate about the cause

Well worth the visit. - Edit

I found this place by accident and hadn't seen the reviews on here, so I went with the expectation of a hipster joint in an unhip city. The reality was so much better - a local shop for local people in a rundown part of town.

The food was great, the guy running it lovely and engaging. I'm just glad it's not my local as my body wouldn't thank me. It's the best deep-fried experience I've had since becoming vegan.

Pros: Great food., Friendly owner.

Cons: Daily visits wouldn't be healthy.

Wonderful! - Edit

Absolutely love this little gem. It has exactly what you need from a chippy. Affordable, great food and really helpful and friendly staff. Probably a good thing I was visiting from out of town or I would have gone through the whole menu.
Will definitely be making a return visit when I'm back this way.

Pros: Proper chip shop food without the animals., Affordable, Lovely staff

Unique - great if you like mock meat - Edit

To the best of my knowledge, this is the first vegetarian ‘fish and chip’ shop in the country, run by friendly locals. Serves vegetarian versions of the kinds of dishes you’d expect to find in any English chippy. The chips are very good, but in my opinion the main attractions are the pasties, masala ‘fish’ and ‘chicken’ drumsticks (made from soy). Most of the dishes are vegan.

Don’t expect a fancy restaurant – this is a fast-food takeaway in a dingy part of town (Hockley area) specialising in deep-fried comfort food. But if you like mock-meat, this is a fun (and unique) place to visit for greasy treats. The food is cheap – for example, pies and pasties cost between £2 and £3 each.

Pros: Very cheap, Friendly staff, Huge menu containing all chip shop classics

Cons: Not great for a sit-down meal
