“A whale of a Haddock !”

Shakey Shakey Fish Bar
Ranked #1 of 212 Restaurants in Ramsgate
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$1 - US$6
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 September 2018

We ordered two haddock and chips. The fish were massive and covered in a very special, light and crispy batter. The chips were random sized which was different and really nice to pick through them.
I would say there was enough to feed an army, be warned it would challenge anyone to finish them all !
We tried the 'Shaky shaky' spice mix, to be honest we weren't fans but it was nice.
I would recommend this fish and chip shop to really, really hungry people.

Been here twice, and the first time was takeaway chips. The chips are twice the width of two fingers put together, so effectively like little bricks. This ruins the consistency, taste and crispiness of the chip. I thought this was a one-off and tried it again. Same little brick chips. I don't think I've ever tried a chippie like this with unusual chips. I won't be returning as it isn't difficult to understand how to cut a chip in a chip shop. I would have thought this was basic research of anyone opening a chippie. Very odd and not good.

Hi Andrea,

We are voted the best chippy in the kent area for a reason. Always cooking food to order so its fresh at all times, our vast variety of options, our service, and of course our chips. Yes our chips are a unique cut, and this is what our customers love, and we are very proud of it. At one point we had a problem with our machine and our chips were the 'regular chippy chips' and all our customers were enquiring to find out when we are going back to our original unique cut chips. Our customers love it, and so do we. It is unfortunate that you didnt enjoy them, but we believe its opinion when it comes to how fat or thin you like chips. In terms of what you refer to as consistency depends on the type of potatoes we buy from local farms. Some crisp up some dont, some look dark on the outside some dont, some feel fluffier some dont. So its about the potato and not about the cut. This is why you will find other reviews saying they are crispy, when you felt your chips werent. Different times, different potatoes. Hope you find the right chippy for you that offers the shape you like. Take care
