I had a one delivered from a place at canongate, just as you go town towards the palace from the cowgate.

It was called Benn something!

Would order again.

Fryers delight at Gracemount was always great but it's not as good as it was.

Everyone always goes on about dino's at loanhead but I didn't find it particularly great.

The Cavaliere isn't really a chippy though is it? They're pizzas are the best though

Sorry but this discussion was finished at post 3.

Tailend is best by a country mile.

So good i can't remember it's name but the one beside Swanny's in the Southside is tremendous. Best fish supper in the northern hemisphere.

I really don't rate it or understand what's special about it. I'd rather drive past to the St Johns or over to Ginos at Longstone.

I bet none of the above mentioned chippys make to order apart from the tailend.

If you say there a better chippy you've obviously not been!

BBQ is class. I live closer to St Johns but tend to go further to go to bbq. St J's is also owned by a Yam - a nice one though mind you.

Dont know the name of it but the Chippy in Walter Scott Ave in The Inch has been in the same family for over 30years, magic chips and all the extra's, an old school chippy like they all used to be.

Thank you, and good night.

I used to swear by this place but have to agree with other posters and say that The Tailend is now the best. I had one after the last derby and the batter is out of this world. Unreal taste.

Honourable mention for Beni's in the Canongate, which usually gets my business at 2-3am in the morning.
