About this business

Fish in crisp batter, served with fat, golden, home-made chips and a dash of salt and vinegar. It's still one of Britain's favourite meals and at Bob's Fish & Chips we have perfected this classic combo and brought back some nostalgia.

I ordered twice from it, always delivery. the food arrived in time. didn't have to wait for long, however, the fish was oily and was small, the calamari was hard and not tasty. the shrimps were ok.. in general. the food was average a bit pricy in comparing with the quality you get..

I have dined here twice - both times, we received great service. The staff was attentive and had a great grasp of the menu. Both times, we ordered the Mediterranean Cod with a side salad. It was very delicious! The restaurant was clean, bright and open till 4am. Great casual dining in the Dubai Marina.

The ubiquitous Chippy is sadly missing in the UAE. I don't think I will ever see the day where we have a chip shop doing chip shop things - fries wrapped in paper and doused in malt vinegar - deep friend sausages - pickled eggs etc...

Having been disappointed with most Fish and Chip shops over the years, I now avoid Fish and Chips altogether.

However, I was in the neighbourhood the other day and decided to try out Bob's Fish and Chips.

Unlike most Chip shops, Bob's is actually a very pleasant place to be. Someone has put some thought into the interiors of this place. Love the baby blue chairs and the overall design aesthetics.

So we ordered 1 Spicy Fried Fillet of Hammour (since Cod and Haddock were out of stock) and a Hamburger with high hopes. Food arrived in about 15 minutes and I do have to say presentation was great (that's what 60 dhs gets you I guess).

But all the feelings of happiness disappeared in a few moments. First the chips were hard. Yes HARD. As in they were like rocks and hurt to chew. They had tried the twice fried technique (used for Belgian fries) and had made a mess of it.

The only way to soften up the fries was to soak them in vinegar or ketchup for a few minutes - not fun and definitely not tasty either.

The Fish was just an oily mess. I don't think Hammour lends itself too well. The fish looked amazing enough on the plate but a few bites in and it felt like an oil well had spouted in my mouth. A third of the fish in and it felt like half of Abu Dhabi's GDP had coated my insides.

The burger ended up being the best of a bad bunch - Modern Bakery Bun with some faux thousand island sauce. A decent burger but definitely not worth 52 dhs.

This is one of the biggest mysteries in life - how do such restaurants not only survive but expand too.

With Bob's Fish And Chips, I think it could be their "Open 24 hours" aspect. I can totally see people stumbling in after a night at the bar.

I honestly think Bob is in the wrong line of business. He should be tapping into his fish and bottling all the oil - it could very well solve our energy problems.

Price is outrageous for the quality of crap being served to you.

To summarise - A double YUCK with a barf thrown in.

It's the best fish & chip shop in dubai apparently...it may well be and to be fair to them it's not all about fish and chips - Ideally situated by the Byblos marina for the crowd leaving after a late night on a Thursday or Friday...it has decent food, decent service and it is one of the few fish & chip shops in Dubai so I guess that can't be bad.....but it wouldnt be a regular for me....

I tried this place today and it was not bad. I would not say it was really yum or something but it was ok. The service was fine, the stuff was fast and we didn't have to wait too long. I like the sitting outdoor and least while winter you can enjoy the weather. I had the fish, which was fine the chips i would not recommend.

I still don't know a better place to find a good fish & chips meal in Dubai other than Bob's Fish & Chips.
I really love their grilled fishes. The chips aren't that great but the fish really makes up for it & would highly recommend - YUM!

Tried Bob's on the weekend as it's nearby, despite hearing bad reviews thought I'd give it a go. Nothing special, average food, can't beat the fish and chip room in JBR.

I tried the newly opened Bobs Fish and Chips at Business Bay. My husband tried the Special Breaded Cod Fillet & Chips and I tried the supposedly healthy Grilled Spicy Fish Fillet- Hammour. The place was a bit small so we got a table somewhere at a corner. And the strange part was that the lady at the counter tells us that they have seats outside. Who in they're right mind would tell us to have a meal in 45 degree outdoor heat ! Anyway, when we received my dish, I was surprised at how oily my grilled fish was. I asked the waiter whether this was really healthy - as it said Healthy Options on the menu. My husband's Cod Fillet was soaked in oil that he had to remove the crust to eat it. And the place was overpriced. The Cod was around AED 63 and my hummour was AED 55. The sides "Baked Potato" were not that great either. Never more !

Coming straight from the Uk and having many famous Fish and Chips shops back home in Somerset, I have high standards, however I will eat at this restaurant once a month, because i want to appreciate it every time, This really is best Fish and Chip shop i have been to in years, The fish, the batter, the chips are exquisite. Service is great and portions are generous. 5* no questions asked

Found "Bob" by chance while driving through Marina on the weekend. My extremely lazy husband who cannot be bothered to dress up to go to a proper restaurant on his day off from work, strolled in casually and ordered a takeaway, and also brought a delivery menu so he can be spared that amount of effort too at a later date. The kids like Bob's menu - teenagers prefer casual hangout places anytime - and as for me, any delivery that means I dont have to cook for the day is most welcome always. The Dubai Marina branch is pretty cosy inside actually, and because the building is all glass and silver metal, kind of shiny and bright looking, you usually dont notice any dust around the place untill you take a really close survey, which, I decided not to as I was on my day off as well. Ideal place if you want to have lunch with your adorable kids and long suffering spouse, or your date who doesnt mind you accompanying them in a shirt you slept in the last two days but cant be bothered to change as its in your favourite colour.
