Dundas Fish & Chips serves western, Chinese and Thai cusine in a small strip mall.
Glad that I finally popped in here.
I ordered the deep fried prawns,16 for 6.50 i believe,my friends had the thai chicken skewers,a burger,fish and chips,and wonton soup and house chow mein
What a bargain!!
Food is very solid and enjoyable,tasty and fresh.
Fish was a solid filet of either halibut or cod,your choice.
all around a great value and eperience.Definately will return.
The clientele are mostly retired folk and working class service staff and labourers from the area. Very popular locally due to the charming and polite immigrant family, the obvious care and attention to quality and yes, the cheap and cold Kokanee on tap. Weekly specials offered are seafood and mushroom and minestrone soups, deliciously spiced meatloaf, real turkey dinners, lasagna etc. all made from recipes provided by customers who cook and help the owners to expand their menu. The deluxe burger special is a monster with fries for under 4 dollars. The fries are hand cut, the fish is all fresh with generous portions. The Indonesian and Thai offerings are delicious. Inexpensive, eclectic, clean and friendly with an added dollop of clever conversation and the latest hockey game. The only families that would feel uncomfortable are the middle class recent arrival urban pioneers who are so intolerant everywhere else in our Eastside neighbourhoods.
This place is such a sad waste of space. The food is almost passable, it wold perhaps seem better if any atmosphere existed at all?! The place is always full of chronic drunks drinking pints/pitchers of the cheap on tap Kokanee they offer. The crowd they have are regulars and from what I can tell are there pretty much everyday. This is close to home so I do see it often.
The staff and owners are extremely polite, sadly, to a fault. Catering to the addicts as they do, is only harming their business as well as the ones they are neighbours too. These regulars frequently hover smoking cigarettes and joints right in front of this place. Making it absolutely inappropriate to bring my child here to eat or to visit any of the other businesses in this super-mini-strip mall.
Despite all that, I have found the food to be cheap and fairly fresh the few times I did eat here(before I found other options in the area) but nothing special. They do manage to keep the immense and sparsely decorated space they have fairly clean but that really doesn't balance out the negatives going on here.
Oh! Don't be fooled by the name, it isn't really a Fish and Chip shop either, I am not sure that is even on the menu. It is mostly Asian food.
