To start with this was by far the best chip shop in edinburgh but overtime the standard has seriously dropped to the point i will never go back. I can get a better fried fish at my local chip shop. Last time i went my fish was presented to me with batter hanging of it all over the place obviously the batter hanging of was full of fat. I mentioned to the guy that it was not meant to be that way and that i felt the standard was dropping. From a decent or even half decent eaterie you would expect an apolligy and for them to do it again right, i was basicly abused by the guy doing the frying in a very aggressive manner. I got my money back and will not be going again. Would have recomended when they first opened but would definately stay away now

Tailend is owned by the partner in the famous Anstruther Fish Bar in Fife. They do amazing 'posh' fish and chips too. It's not exactly white clothe napkin and silver cutlery, just really good battered haddock, chips and mushy peas. There is a restaurant area adjoining the take-away offer. The restaurant is modern/basic but clean with views into the kitchen. Note to management: please change the background elevator music! Among other things you can order pizza in the restaurant. I tried it once, but seriously don't bother. The bases are doughy and pizza toppings are bland. Stick to what you are good at - FISH! Lets put it this way, if I was to rate Tailend primarily on the pizza, it would have been 2 stars, but their fish 'n' chip suppers are the best I've tasted. Why bother with pizza when La Favorita are the masters of pizza a block down the road?! The fish are sustainable sourced which leads to a variety of specials like: sole, sea bass and rock turbot. The everyday menu includes the usual seafood, cod, haddock, calamari, hake and monkfish - all available in a light, crisp batter, breaded, or just grilled. The chips are big and chunky fried in beef dripping for crunch and a fluffy inside. Yum! Oooh I might just go and grab a chippy there tonight!

The best fish and chip shop in Edinburgh! wide range of fish to chose from and everything is cooked freshly while you wait (not like some chip shops). Also has an attached restaurant.

The Haddock fish had a nice crisp batter that never got soggy, even after squeezing lemon on it. The chips aren't the best, but the fish was better than any fish and chips I've had in the U.S. Though not sure if that is saying much...

This fish and chip cafe is unlike many others as it feels rather posh! The food was delicious, some of the best fish and chips I've ever had, and the service was excellent. We initially came here on an offer, which they run quite often, but it would be worth a visit any time. I think they fry their chips in animal fat, which sounds a bit yuck, but they were absolutely scrummy!

There is no other takeaway restaurant in Edinburgh as good as the Tailend. Fresh food, freshly cooked and not covered in grease.

Disappointing. Have been a few years ago and was impressed but recent visits have been poor. Overpriced and meagre portions in the sit down area and most recently heavy batter and chewy, dry haddock. Will not be back.
