Star of the Sea cook chips the way they should be, crisp on the outside and soft inside. The batter for the cod was nice and light and crisp. The steak pie and saveloy also very good. Add to that very friendly service. Highly recommended

Friendly service. Deserves the accolades. Chips were great. Non greasy and tasty. Only letdown was the batter on the very generous portion of fish was over cooked and pretty greasy.

My experience at the star of the sea was amazing the chips were nicely salted and fluffy. The fish melted in your mouth and the batter was crunchy and a nice texture. The meal deals were very reasonable and it isn't overpriced.

Love the fact this place does the usual plus something a little different. We had saithe (Atlantic pollack) and chips £3.75 each, cooked fresh. It was a tasty, meaty fish with a stronger flavour than cod (slightly grey as described by the very friendly server)....More

We had a lovely fish and chip meal, from here, the cod was cooked to perfection and was well filleted. The chips were not soggy, but they were firm, crisp and had a soft centre.

The sign outside declared that their chips have been voted best in Broadstairs. However, the chips that I had can only be described as average. I ordered Cod and chips, with a roll. The fish was fine and cooked to order. When I stopped in...More
