Go here regularly for fish and chips. Invariably lengthy queues due to popularity and food cooked to order so it takes a while. Food is first class though.

I understand everything is made fresh, but when it takes over 20 mins and then tastes the same as any other chippy then it kind of defeats the purpose.

Great food everything cooked from fresh, nothing sitting longer than it takes to get served in the queue, staff are young but keen and polite, always worth a visit

Got the battered fish supper and it was really good. Girlfriend got a cheeseburger supper and said it was really good as well. Chips are tasty. I normally get a phone order. You wait up to an hour but it’s worth the wait. Best chipper...More

I think this is probably the best chippy in Dundee, always a queue and reasonably priced. Ideally located if you have a car near the hospital.

Good fresh food, always busy and reasonably priced. Fish is cooked to order. Only criticism is that they don’t do chips and cheese

Always love a chipper night at the silvery tat. Food is always brilliant and not too greasy. Only flaw is the regularly run out of fritters! 😕

Very nice pie and chips. The fish was lovely and the white pudding was ok too. Will certainly buy from here next time we are in Dundee.

I wouldn't have thought so. The shop is a take away and not very big. However it has a big window and plenty places outside where a dog could be safely tied up and easily seen from inside.
