Living around the corner, bought the fish and chips a few times for tea and can't say I'm a fan. The chips are good and fish is undeniably fresh, but the batter was always soaking in oil.

This is a pretty simple place, serving nice grilled fish or fried fish, fish sandwiches, etc. For the area, it's fairly inexpensive too, and the fish was fresh and very tasty.

There's a about the ambiance and decor of Tank that reminds me of the old-fashioned fish and chip take aways at the beach. The tables and chairs and comfy benches are a step up from the plastic garden chair, but the furnishings are not pretentious....More

Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
