Gluten free fish and chips with a dedicated fryer/batter mix. The clam chowder when I went was also gluten free/vegan and was tasty. Highly recommend supporting this business!

I’ve missed eating fish and chips since I got diagnosed as celiac. Thankful this place has a dedicated GF fryer and TASTY fish n chips. Not a huge area to dine in but worth checking out

The staff was really helpful, especially considering I have both Celiac and a shellfish allergy. Fish and fries were fresh and perfectly salted! A nice treat to have something not commonly found safely GF. Appreciate that they have allergens clearly marked on their order forms for the kitchen staff.

We’ve been coming here for a few years when we’re in Vancouver. They have a separate fryer for gluten free fish and chips. The batter is light and crispy. Knowledgeable staff. Never disappointed and I’ve never had a reaction.

Separate fryer for fish and fried. Top notch. Not greasy at all. Staff kept my order separate from my family’s and marked the top of my container “gluten-free”. It was delicious and I felt safe eating there. Great service.

Really great fish and chips. The GF fish and chips actually taste better than the other popular non GF fish and chips places around the Lower Mainland (e.g. Pajo's, Cockney King's, etc.)

Such delicious fish and chips, light and crispy. Separate gf fryer. They can make everything gluten free other than their shellfish, as they do that in a separate fryer too for shellfish allergies. Their soups are gf too! They also sell homemade gf flours for pizza, pasta, pancakes, waffles, tempura, fried chicken...you name it! Really friendly and knowledgeable staff!

I'm super surprised by the low review here. I'm really sensitive to cc and I've never been sick. It looks to me like one side is GF and the other is gluten. So I never saw them switch between the two counters. And I never saw a third counter but I could be wrong!

Thier fish and chips glutened me. We watched how they prepared them later and realized that the gluten free frier was between the normal friers and there was batter being dripped over top the "safe" one.
