Chicken shops are found in just about every suburb in Adelaide and it’s no surprise that it’s the preferred place to visit when it comes to take out. Morphett Fish and Chicken is located in a small shopping complex just off Morphett Road. The menu offerings are fairly stock standard with fish, yiros, burgers, steak sandwiches, roast chicken and salads.
Compared to other chicken shops, this place is fairly small with only a couple of seats out on the sidewalk. The presentation is very good and I like the fact that it is spotless.
For lunch, I had the Fish and Chips. The fish used was not of a great quality, however, the fillet was soft and delicate, and the battered coating was quite firm. The chips were of the thin variety and were fried until crunchy. Sometimes the small touches do count, and I was pleased to see a small tub of tartare sauce included in the meal.
The staff were very friendly and the service was fast and efficient. The meal was part of a lunch deal which included a drink for $8.90. I thought this was good value and the meal portion was just right. Their other menu items are fairly average in price as well.
This place is one of the nicer fish & chip/chicken shops I’ve been to.
